Guide Review – Canon Pixma MP610 All-in-One Printer
Like other multifunctional printers of Canon, this Canon Pixma MP610 MP610 All-in-One Printer is quite desktop-friendly despite its large size. You can fold everything up, even its large LCD screen. So this printer can save your space. Moreover, it has some hidden slots which are used for memory cards as well as an output tray which can open automatically. You know, those are what make Canon’s printers become so popular.
Users are allowed to edit their photos on this printer. However, some may find it is quite hard to preview these changes. There will be no explanations from the menu about how a “Photo opt. pro” will look like (as a matter of fact, it means optimizing tone and brightness). This feature makes your photo somehow lighter than you expect. Moreover, the option “illustration” option may give you a result which may be not really good. Some other photo-editing softwares can give you better results. However, the Navigator’s “digital face smoothing” won’t let you down. This feature does a good job when you want the faces in the photos become more beautiful and younger.
You will have your photos printed great-looking. They come out dry and sharp, especially when you have used another program (Photoshop Elements, for example) to edit your photos.
About the printing speed, it takes about one minute and fifteen seconds for a 4 x 6 photo to come out, in case you choose default resolution. When it comes to copying, the speed is really fast. Moreover, with the help of the onboard screen, you are shown how to print multiple sheets on just one page. You will find that is a really good way to help save ink and paper.
In addition, there is a Bluetooth utility which is optional. It allows users to print wirelessly. And you know, the starting up time of newer Pixmas printers is somehow shorter than older models.
This Pixma MP610 still has some drawbacks, especially when it comes to photo editing. The MP Navigator is the only feature included in the built-in software bundle, but it is sad to know that it is quite difficult to use. You may find it is a lightly featured and clumsy utility which offers little more than several smoothing as well as sharpening functions.
