Canon Pixma MP530 is another ‘omnipotent’ device combining functions of printer, copier, scanner and fax. Just like most printers of this class, Pixma MP530 is designed to satisfy the need of home users or small office.
However, there are, or I’d rather say, there are not, a couple of things that an office user might find useful. Media card slots and a color LCD are missing from this model, but that may not be a problem if you used PC before printing photos.
Canon Pixma MP530 faxing abilities include 40 programmable speed-dial numbers, 33.6 kbps of faxing speed and 150-page memory. The paper capacities are modest, but enough for target users: cassette and paper feeder for 150 sheets each and a 30 sheets automatic document feeder.
The printer employs five cartridges system – 3 cartridges for main color and two cartridges for dye-based and pigment-based black inks. Canon Pixma MP530 supports maximum resolution of 9600dpi x 2400dpi and can print as fast as 29 monochrome and 19 color pages per minute.
