The new imageRUNNER ADVANCE C350iF and C250iF models provide users with even more options for customizing an MFP to fit their unique workflow needs, office environment and budget parameters.”
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C350iF and C250iF models are customizable with software options, easily configurable main menus and advanced features to meet a variety of user’s needs. The devices also introduce V2 Color, a new color profile that produces vivid, vibrant images and expands the color reproduction range of each model.

“The ability to provide customers with a technology portfolio that can be customized to support the needs of each unique office environment, while maintaining technological consistency across the entire enterprise, has emerged as a key differentiator in the printing and imaging industry,” said Jake Fishman, gap intelligence, inc. “The addition of the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C350iF and C250iF series to Canon’s already extensive MFP portfolio provides that rarely achieved differentiator, and gives the company one of the most comprehensive and consistent lineups on the market today.”
With a reliable, easy-to-maintain design, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C350iF and C250iF models offer simplified installation and servicing so customers experience greater productivity with shorter down time. With a compact size and small footprint, these devices still yield significant productivity, functionality and enhanced integration with available software applications - such as Therefore and uniFLOW - that help track, manage and streamline document-based processes.
The imageRUNNER ADVANCE C350iF and C250iF models are equipped to create efficiencies in how a business manages their print and document flows – including cloud connectivity and mobile solutions – helping customers improve entire business workflows. These new models feature the design, performance and control functionality of existing imageRUNNER ADVANCE devices in addition to the following capabilities.

- Vibrant Output: In a continued effort to deliver high-quality MFPs that offer a well-rounded suite of features, the imageRUNNER ADVANCE C350iF and C250iF models will feature the new V2 Color. With vibrant color and sharper, more well-defined images, output will have an impactful look and feel. If desired, customers may select the legacy profile to match existing imageRUNNER ADVANCE models that are in the fleet.
