The Canon PIXMA MG3610 ($ 60) is a Bare-Bones multifunction wireless device for people who do not want to pay extra for features they do not need. You will not find an LCD control panel to perform standalone operations, and there is no automatic document feeder (ADF) to copy or scan multipage documents.
The control panel also has buttons for color and black and white copies. Because there is no LCD screen on the MG3610, you have to press the appropriate Copy button repeatedly to make multiple copies. Using the control panel, you can make copies on photo paper, but only on 4 x 6 inch photo paper. You can not perform more complex copy jobs because there is no real copy software.

The Canon PIXMA MG3610 delivers a lot for the money. He makes very attractive photo prints, produces excellent photo scans and prints razor sharp text (at least on high quality paper). The characteristics of the printer are basic, but if you rarely need to exchange paper, do not make many multipage copies and do not need an LCD for stand-alone operation, it is unlikely that you wish you bought a multifunctional printer with more bells and whistles.
