The Canon PIXMA TS8320 uses the Canon PGI-280 Black and tricolour Canon CL-281 ink cartridges. Both ink cartridges are available in high yield (XL) sizes so you can print more pages per cartridge.

Additional ink cartridges enhance printing efficiency. The black pigment cartridge is capable of darkening documents, thus deepening the black region of your photos.
