This all in one product has an improved design from its predecessor (PIXMA MP970 Photo all in one), great interactive LCD menu, auto duplexer copier, and so many other excellent features.


The overall design is similar to the one offered in the PIXMA MP line. However, the dimensions have changed, making the MP980 Wireless Photo a more space saving printer. With a height of 7.9 inches (20.07 cm), wide of 18.5 inches (36.83 cm), deep of 15.2 inches (46.99 cm), the MP980 all in one weights approximate 23.6 lbs (10.7 kg), making the device more suitable for any desks.

In order to save space you should just fold in the output tray. The first thing you are going to observe on the lid is the centered 3.5 inches high resolution LCD display. On the right of the LCD display, you can find the five way navigational button (up, down, left, right and ok / select).

You can reduce the paper copied down to 25%, or enlarge the paper with up to 400%. You really get a lot of good copy features with your all in one MP 980, such as preset copy ratio, continuous copy, image repeat, photo reprint, multiple copies, fit to page, auto duplex copy and others. The third important feature from this device is the scanner function.

Therefore, if you want to install a network connection, you first have to connect the printer by USB cable to a computer or MacBook. After you install the Canon suite, you choose from settings that you wish to use the AIO with a network connection. Only after this step you remove the USB cable.
