Product information
Enjoy efficient home printing with the Canon PIXMA iP2850 Inkjet Printer in white.

Quality printing made easy

With its quality design and reliable features, this Canon inkjet printer will help you generate clean, professional-looking text documents and images.

The PIXMA iP2850 allows you to print with impressive detail levels thanks to Canon's FINE technology and hybrid ink system. Dye-based inks allow the colour cartridge to deliver vivid colour prints, while the black cartridge gives you crisp, satisfying text.

Print on a range of paper sizes, including photo paper, so you can print some of your favourite snaps. Hook it up via USB and fit it onto your desk without a problem thanks to its compact design.

Cost-effective printer

You'll save money using the Canon PIXMA iP2850, which accepts two ink cartridges to make everyday printing easier and more affordable.

Use compatible XL cartridges to print considerably more pages and delay ink replacements for longer. These are great if you print often and can help you save up to 30% per page in comparison to standard equivalent models.

Intelligent features

The Canon PIXMA iP2850 Inkjet Printer comes with My Image Garden software, a great package that makes organising and printing your photos straightforward.

It offers advanced features such as face recognition, letting you search through all the images on your computer to build attractive original designs to print – even images you've stored ages ago and forgotten about.

Using the Auto Clip function of the Easy-WebPrint EX plug-in for Internet Explorer, you can easily print out just the information you need from the web. Clip your desired sections from multiple web pages and print them onto one sheet to save paper.

More savings for you

Take advantage of clever features such as Auto Power On/Off with the Canon PIXMA iP2850. These respectively turn the printer on for convenience when you initiate printing, and off to save energy when you aren't printing.

The machine also operates with a Quiet Mode that drastically cuts down operating noise so that you can print more silently at home.

The Canon PIXMA iP2850 Inkjet Printer is a great home printer that will save you money.

Very inexpensive printer, easy to set up and requires just two ink cartridges. Fast enough printing for my requirements but I don't do a lot of printing.
