What ink does Canon MX490 use?

The Canon Pixma MX490 uses Canon PG-245/245XL and CL-246/246XL cartridges. Being able to take both standard size and XL cartridges means that you can get more from them, keep printing for longer and print high-demand documents, photos and more that require a lot of ink. You can print more pages using the high-yield cartridges such as the CL-246XL. The black cartridges use pigment ink, while the color cartridges use dye-based ink.
