Canon Pixma MP960 Photo All-In-One
The Canon Pixma MP960 Photo All-In-One is a top-notch digital photo lab that also prints, scans, and copies.The Canon Pixma MP960 Photo All-In-One ($399.99 direct) is what I tend to call a "photo lab AIO." You can use it as a printer, scanner, and standalone copier, but unlike office-centric all-in-ones (AIOs), it cant fax and doesnt have an automatic document feeder (ADF) for multipage documents. Instead, the MP960 offers 35mm film scanning and the ability to print directly from 35mm film as well as from PictBridge-enabled cameras and memory cards. Add in terrific photo output quality and a 3.5-inch color LCD for previewing photos before printing, and youve got a top-notch home photo lab.
The MP960 uses seven ink cartridges: the usual cyan, yellow, and magenta, plus light cyan and light magenta (which make it easier to create the subtle changes in shading that you need for true photo quality) and both a pigment-based black for text and a dye-based black for photos.
