From the boardroom to the back nine, business doesn't always happen where ink tanks are available, Canon's Use Composite Black Mode will allow the user to switch the printer to composite black for printing of text and other professional looking documents when the standard black ink tank has run out. Composite black is created by mixing cyan, magenta and yellow inks together, which can provide the critical ink needed if the black tank runs dry at an inopportune moment.
