Stylish and affordable Super G3 inkjet fax with a built-in digital answering machine

Speed and style
Take advantage of high performance, affordable and reliable plain paper faxing. A Super G3 modem transmits faxes at up to 3 seconds per page reducing your phone costs - and multiple faxes can be received without blocking the line. This stylish and compact inkjet fax has a small footprint so it fits neatly in any surroundings.

High quality, high speed printing
The FAX-JX500 is the first fax to use Canon’s advanced FINE print head technology for high quality, high speed printing. A 600 x 600dpi print resolution delivers faxes that are clear and easy to read - at a fast print speed of 10 seconds per page. You can even use the FAX-JX500 as a convenient copier with the same fast, professional output.

Built-in digital answering machine
A built-in digital answering machine with 30 minutes recording time ensures that you won’t miss a single message when you’re out of the office. You benefit from a total fax, telephone, answering machine and copier solution in one compact unit.

Secure, worry-free faxing
A 120-page fax memory safely stores all incoming documents if paper or toner runs out, for printing out later. Lengthy documents can also be scanned rapidly before transmission for sending automatically from memory, freeing up valuable time.

Flexible paper handling
The 20-page Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) lets you fax multiple large documents with ease without splitting them up first. A 100-sheet auto cassette feeder cuts down on paper refilling time.

Time-saving speed dialling
9 One-touch and 100 abbreviated Coded speed dials are available to store all your regular contact numbers. A convenient directory key lets you search through speed dials quickly.

Fax the finest details
Ultra High Quality (UHQ) image processing transmits detailed documents perfectly, such as diagrams or photos combined with text. Half-tone reproduction with 256 grey scales gives extra depth and clarity to images.

Stop unwanted faxes
Stop unwanted or junk faxes and save on paper and ink. A direct mail preventative function restricts incoming faxes to recognised numbers or to transmissions carrying TTI (Transmitter Terminal Identification) information.

Economical Ink Saver mode
A special Ink Saver mode enables a savings of over 40% in ink compared to normal usage - helping you cutting your costs significantly.
