Product Overview

Canon PIXMA GM4050 is a monochrome wireless 3-in-1 printer in the MegaTank-series. Essentially a monochrome version of the G7020 (G7050) minus the fax function, the GM4050 adds back color printing capabilities using traditional ink cartridges, unlike monochrome ink tank printers offered by the competition.
Being a 3-in-1, the PIXMA GM4050 comes with an automatic document feeder (ADF) and auto duplex functionality. It is designed for home office and small business.
Canon also markets a printer-only model, the GM2050, that shares with the GM4050 all printing-related characteristics.
