Canon Pixma MP760

£299 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Canon

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Few multifunction devices (MFDs) we've reviewed have had such an ambitious remit as the MP760. Billed as Canon's ‘ultimate multifunctional photo centre', the Pixma MP760 is designed to be the complete one-stop shop for photophiles. Its specs list may not vastly outshine those of MFDs costing around a third of the price, but it's the MP760's complete package that impresses.

Few multifunction devices (MFDs) we've reviewed have had such an ambitious remit as the MP760.

Its specs list may not vastly outshine those of MFDs costing around a third of the price, but it's the MP760's complete package that impresses.

The 2.5in LCD screen, flash memory drive and PictBridge port are givens, but the capable media-handling facilities aren't. Using Canon's dual paper path system, plain paper and photo print media can be loaded at the same time. Auto-duplexing allows double-sided printing, plus you can print directly onto compatible CDs and DVDs.

The MP760 has one of Canon's more sophisticated ink printing systems. Whereas most MFDs use the same type of black ink whether printing photos or text documents, the Pixma can choose from two depending on the job. It's touches like this that allow the MP760 to romp ahead on print output.

In our real-world tests, it printed text at 12ppm - good but not astounding. However, bump up the quality settings, and the MP760 maintains a decent speed. Sparkling results are available at 8ppm, and even at the highest settingit managed 2.1ppm. Colours were vibrant and well defined.

An optical resolution of 2,400x4,800dpi enables superb reproduction on scans, and the built-in film adapter is invaluable for slides and transparencies. Fading and grain correction help enhance results, and speeds are strong across the board.

    Canon Pixma MX860

    Canon's Pixma MX860 colour inkjet multifunction printer is a nicely equipped, moderately priced machine that would serve a small office well. Its older cousin, the Canon Pixma MX700, is faster and a little cheaper, but has fewer features.

    Canon Pixma MP490

    Canon's Pixma MP490 colour inkjet multifunction printer (MFP) has a superlow price and a simple-to-use design that should appeal to home and student users. If you print a lot, however, look elsewhere, as its ink costs are high.
