For instance, when the printer is working on a black and white document, the speed is about 8.0 ipm. But printing in color has a rate of 4.0 images per minute (ipm). It also has duplex printing, which is also two-sided printing for both sides of the print paper. In terms of the cartridge types and capacity, standard cartridge models are the PG-445 for black and CL-446 for color. But there are also XL cartridge models for higher print yield than the standard cartridge types.

Considering the media types, the Canon PIXMA MG2940 model can print on plain paper, envelopes, and photo paper types. Besides, the compatible standard sizes are A4, B5 A5, legal, letter, photo paper, and envelope sizes. The maximum paper input load is up to 60 sheets of plain paper that pass through the rear tray. When the machine is at work, the plain paper load must have a weight range of 64 and 105 gsm. However, Canon photo paper can allow a maximum weight of 275 gsm.
