The Pixma E610 does its job at a very affordable price. The output is decent for an all-around photo printer. Additional scanning, photocopying, and faxing capabilities make the E610 a good buy.

With all the craze in photographing every possible moment of our lives, it would be nice to have a way to make those memories permanent. The new Canon Pixma E610 hopes to be that printer for people on a budget.

It features a sleek black modern design. It is not compact—quite bulky in fact—but the soft edges make it a lot easier on the eyes.

The E610 isn’t the fastest of printers but it gets the job done with decent results. Oranges come in a lighter hue, while the greens are perfect. Vivid colors such as blue and red come off as a little faded; this is more apparent when photocopying colored documents.

The booklet with idiot-proof setup instructions is a breeze to get through; no rocket science required there. The UI is pretty simple, and the display tells you exactly what to do should the need arise.

Loading new paper and ink cartridges is also seamless and hassle-free. You can load up to 30 A4 sheets for bulk printing, which means you don’t have to stand right next to the printer worrying about paper jam when processing several pages.

The Pixma E610 comes with the My Image Garden software that lets you create collages with your photos and prepare them for printing. The program also suggests which photos from your computer you can put together.

Aside from printing, scanning, and copying on the E610, you can fax documents up to A4, LTR (letter), and LGL (legal) size. You can even PC fax if you’re on a Windows OS.
