Replacement cartridges are available in both standard and high capacity. Photos are enhanced by the XP-800’s Auto Photo Correction feature with advanced face detection and red-eye removal. You can even preview your photos before you print them.

The input tray can take up to 100 sheets of plain paper while the output tray has a 50-sheet capacity. There’s a second input tray that’s dedicated to photos and can hold up to 20 glossy photos. The 30-sheet Automatic Document Feeder gives a performance boost to the Copy, Scan and Fax functions. The versatile Copy function has a whole lot of useful features like Auto background removal, fit to page, reduction, enlargement, color restoration and more. The duplexer supports double-sided printing as well as copying.

The flatbed scanner supports B&W scanning and includes features like scan to PDF, scan to PC/USB/network and you can also scan photos and convert them to coloring book pages. The fax function can be used directly from the MFC or from a connected PC. The 3.5” LCD touch screen with gesture navigation and intuitive menus makes it really easy to use the XP-800.
