The printer has the capability of accommodating 300ml ink tanks, geared towards lowering the cost per print.

For increased productivity, the iPF685 printer comes with a 320GB hard drive built in, allowing for enhanced file processing, personal mailbox space, and job storage of up to 500 print jobs!
From a software perspective, the iPF685 printer comes loaded with user-friendly software solutions that are ready to be used right out of the box. Direct Print & Share, Canon's cloud-based portal solution1, is available as a download and allows for files to be uploaded, downloaded, shared and printed from almost anywhere in the world! Also downloadable is a mobile printing app, imagePROGRAF Print Utility2, allows for PDFs to be printed through use of an Apple© iPad©. The Accounting Manager software allows users to track job costs, while the Print Plug-in for Microsoft Office enables for documents created with Word, Excel or Powerpoint to be printed in large format. And to improve versatility, the iPF685 printer has a Media Configuration Tool which allows customers to optimally utilize their Canon-branded media in creating their desired output.
