Summary: I am struggling to get good prints with this printer. It is very sensitive to different photo papers. It would have been nice to get a supply of MP-101 and other Canon photo papers to use to get started. Only 4 sheets of MP-101 to calibrate the head were supplied. The manual is very scarce of useful information. An extensive online FAQ with other helps would be good. On plain paper, my old Oki 5100 LED printer does as well and much faster with no paper curl.
Summary: This printer is less flexable in terms of print size than similarly priced Epsons. It will only print a file that is 19" long. It also is very clunky when it comes to loading your paper. It has the feel of a later 1980s machine. It also runs through ink like a fire hose dispenses water.
good for non-action pics with good light, bad for everything else

Summary: I've used this camera pretty heavily for about a year, mostly for travelling. I've used it for candids, landscapes, action, and wildlife. Previously, my photo experience has been with Canon point and shoot digicams and Nikon film slrs. It's a bit unfair reviewing this now that it's almost 3-yr old technology, but I noticed that people are still selling this camera for over $1000 on this site.
Summary: SUMMARY: +Great lens +Fast -Poor sensor -8MP -USB 1 -ISO Noise -Dizzying Evt -4:3 aspect ratio -fixed 8MP, 4MP only PREFACE: I've had great expectations from this camera, the best non-d-slr camera, top of the line Canon. I am not a professional photographer and my previous camera is a 3MP Sharp VE-CG30U (Canon G1 based, same lense, updated body, but no swivel lcd - very good entry level camera). PROS: I love this Canon lens. Excellent range, wide angle, telephoto.

Cons: CONS: The CCD sensor caused lots of trouble for me - has to return my first two, I had bad light spots on the ccd on low shutter speeds (and sometimes visible at 1/60 flash shots). My Nikon 5400 (similar Sony CCD) also had to be replaced for this. 8MP
