Remarkable Photo Printer with Individual Ink Tanks and PictBridge. You're going to love the results from this compact photo printer.

Patented print head technology lets you create long-lasting photos with resolution up to an amazing 9600 x 2400 color dpi1. How fast? A photo lab-quality 4'" x 6'" borderless print takes only about 41 seconds2.
You can also print photos directly from a compatible digital camera or camera phone3 - no computer required! The two paper trays let you store both plain and photo paper, so you're always print-ready. And the included software features Auto Photo Fix, which corrects redeye and enhances your images.
This is the Canon printer to buy
Very fast print speed.
Clear ink cartridge allowing users to see ink level.
However, ink is too expensive and cartridges are now smaller than previous generations of Canon ink cartridges.

I have had this printer now for 2 years. Very dependable with good photo quality output. We have several canon printers throughout the house. This is our least expensive one the is my "beater". I lug it from work to our basement. Cant tell much difference in photo quality between this and our more expensive ones. This printer does run a litter slow but for the price and reliability you cant beat it!

Worked fine for three years, then...
This printer was as good as other printers I have owned, including E, H, O, P, and maybe a few other brands. The 'Photo Print' quality was outstanding, although I have not done very much of that type of printing. For three years text print quality was outstanding, but now the black ink nozzles cannot be cleaned, even with repeated deep cleaning. I understand that there is a "print head" that can can be replaced but there is no mention of this in the maintenance instructions. Searching eBay I find new print heads listed at prices higher than that of other brand new Canon printer models. I chose to buy one of those instead, since I do so little Photo Printing.
