The PIXMA TS8070 and the PIXMA TS5070 stand out in the Canon PIXMA printer lineup for their array of productivity and direct printing features, as well as an incredibly compact design and stylish appearance.

Users can also choose to digitize the document images into PDF or JPEG formats and transfer the images to the PC for archival.
The printer features a new Document Removal Reminder function that reminds users when a document has been left forgotten on the scanner glass after a scan or copy operation.
