The PIXMA MP250 is a compact, affordable and easy-to-use All-In-One. It combines photolab-quality with superb document and web printing as well as versatile copying and scanning.

Print, Copy, Scan

Affordable and versatile, the PIXMA MP250 brings high quality printing, scanning and copying into your home. Ideal for document, web and photolab-quality printing, it’s suitable for first-time users, students and families.

Realistic document print speeds

Canon supports the industry-wide ISO standard for measuring print and copy speeds. This makes it easy to select the right PIXMA for you based on real document print speeds. The PIXMA MP250 offers ISO ESAT speeds of 7.0ipm for mono documents and 4.8ipm for colour.


Canon's patented FINE technology with 2pl size ink droplets delivers great print quality, with 4800x1200dpi resolution. Photos appear amazingly detailed and free from grain. While Canon’s FINE cartridges use dye-based inks for perfect photo printing, an additional pigment black ink ensures that text is crisp and sharp. The PIXMA MP250 combines quality with speed. A 10x15cm borderless photo can be printed in approximately 56 seconds with default settings.

Intelligent features and software

Easy-WebPrint EX is intuitive software that makes it easy to clip, edit and print information from the web: organise multiple clippings on a single page to save paper. Auto Photo Fix II is advanced software that corrects a wide range of common image faults including underexposure. Using sophisticated Scene Analysis and Face Detection technology, problems such as red eye are swiftly eliminated. Exposure levels of separate parts of an image are optimised for best results.

Efficient scanning

Make highly detailed scans that are faithful to the original with a 600dpi resolution CIS scanner. Auto Scan Mode automatically senses what is being scanned – a photo or a document – and then scans and saves using the most appropriate settings.

Quick and easy to use

With Quick Start, the MP250 is up-and-running within seconds – Print, Copy and Scan whenever you want, almost instantly. A self-opening paper tray automatically opens to collect prints and copies.
