Canon MX892—A Photogenic Office Device

Mx892.200x151There were two things that intrigued us about the Canon Pixma MX892 when we read the press release announcing its introduction.

First, we wondered how well a current generation office printer could print photos. And secondly, we wondered how well Canon had implemented AirPrint for printing from an iPad.

With the same color ink set as the MG-series of Canon's photo all-in-ones, snapshot printing was no problem. But we found the MX firmware isn't as photo-friendly as the MG-series machines.

And while it's nice to have an AirPrint-compatible printer, AirPrint isn't quite as comprehensive a printing solution as Epson's iPrint.

But if you need an automatic document feeder and fax capability in your multifunction device, it sure is nice to have one that prints nice photos, too.
