Summary: So while the Canon Pixma MP970 is more expensive than most of its rivals, its sheer performance, quality and range of features make it a good choice for more demanding home and small business users.
Excerpt: As an urbanite living in a tiny apartment, space to house all of the requisite equipment for my digital darkroom is at a premium. Given that my work space is a sliver of what many photographers I know have at their disposal, I'm forced to consider not only the price and performance benefits of a particular equipment purchase, but also its size and storability.
Pros: Photo prints are crisp and vibrant, Interface is simple to understand, set up, Very good document printing performance, Built-in 35mm film scanner
Cons: Default install a bit bloated, Some bronzing and banding in photo prints, Wireless networking not seamless, Doesn't handle larger print or scan sizes
Summary: The Canon Pixma MP970 isn't up to the company's usually high standards. You're better off spending more for last year's MP960.
Pros: Network-ready, Auto duplexer, Large LCD, Control panel is easy to use and menus are well-thought-out, Memory card slots and PictBridge port
Cons: Task speeds are slower than the last generation's, Print/scan quality is not up to Canon's usual standards and needs improvement across the board, USB port doesn't support hard drives or flash drives
Summary: Für Fotofreunde ist der MP970 eine wahre Fundgrube. Analoges Filmmaterial scannt der Multi mit Hilfe der integrierten Durchlichteinheit im Deckel. Fotos können über PictBridge, von der Speicherkarte oder über Infrarot beispielsweise direkt vom Handy ausgedruckt werden.
