Product Details

Canon PIXMA Photo All-In-One Printer, Model MP480

It's the perfect blend of performance and convenience. This versatile All-In-One lets you print beautiful, long-lasting 4" x 6" borderless prints in about 45 seconds. A new 4-color ink system ensures vivid colors and bold, black text. Your copies will be truer to the originals, and scans of photos or forms will yield results of up to 2400 x 4800 color dpi resolution.

You can also easily print photos without using a computer. Just insert a memory card into the built-in card slot, preview, and even enhance your images on the 1.8" TFT display, then Print! You can also print directly from a compatible digital camera or camera phone, including a Bluetooth device via the optional BU-30 Bluetooth interface. Additional features of the MP480 include the ability to keep the paper output tray closed when not printing (it opens automatically when printing begins), a Quick Start feature lets you power up in less than three seconds, and Auto Photo Fix that corrects red-eye and enhances your images.


Speed & Quality

  • ChromaLife100+6
    The combination of new inks and media deliver exceptional beauty and longevity.
  • High Performance Ink Cartridges
    The two genuine Canon ink cartridges (one B&W, one multi-color) contain specially formulated inks for the highest possible quality. They're easy to use and to replace as needed.

Ease of Use

  • Preview then Print
    Before printing, preview and fine tune your images using the LCD Display.
  • Smart Scanning
    The new Auto Scan feature detects the type of original you're scanning—a photo, business card, personal notebook or form—then automatically scans and saves the image with the appropriate settings.
  • Quick Start
    Powering up your printer is now faster than ever. After pressing the power button, you can begin inputting commands in approximately two seconds. Full operation is even enabled in a shorter time now too.


  • Print from Memory Cards/Cameras
    Want to print photos directly from a compatible memory card without using your computer? Just insert the card into a built-in slot, select images on the LCD display, and print! You can also print photos directly from your digital camera/DV camcorder.
