Advanced All-In-One Photo Printer with 1.8" TFT Screen.
It's the perfect blend of performance and convenience. This versatile All-In-One lets you print beautiful, long-lasting 4" x 6" borderless prints in about 45 seconds1. A new 4-colour ink system ensures vivid colours and bold, black text. Your copies will be truer to the originals, and scans of photos or forms will yield results of up to 2400 x 4800 colour dpi 2 resolution.
You can also easily print photos without using a computer. Just insert a memory card into the built-in card slot, preview, and even enhance your images on the 1.8" TFT display, then Print! You can also print directly from a compatible digital camera or camera phone4,5, including a Bluetooth device via the optional BU-30 Bluetooth interface5. Additional features of the MP480 include the ability to keep the paper output tray closed when not printing (it opens automatically when printing begins), a Quick Start feature lets you power up in less than three seconds, and Auto Photo Fix that corrects red-eye and enhances your images.
