Summary: I ran into a problem where the paper type selection was unavailble. Canon technical support was less than helpful. I figured out that the HP Photosmart software that's installed for my HP P1000 printer was causing the problem. After I exited the HP software in the system tray, the Canon printer began working fine. Canon's response was sometimes software is incompatible.
Summary: These Canon card printers do a fine job if you are printing directly from the camera -- or it is the only printer you own if trying to print from your computer. I bought the printer to do snapshots, while I own several other printers for documents and larger photographs. Even if you only have Adobe Acrobat on your system, the printer will not work. It is useless to me.
Summary: I have had this portable printer only a few days, and have only printed 18 prints on it so far, all on the Card Size photo paper. These little pictures are really neat, and will be a conversation item at family gatherings, I'm sure. The color you get is phenomenal, as true as any photo coloring I have ever seen, even on commercially developed film. My only complaint with it is that is is not easy for me to use.
Summary: I've gone through a number of HP inkjet photo printers. Printing my own photos was somewhat of a novelty, but I had to concede that none rivaled prints done at a photo lab. Finally after struggling with ink costs, paper costs, and less than impressive print quality, I started to use ofoto.com. Recently, I got the bug again and invested in the CP-220. This little unit puts all of the other ones that I've owned (three HP printers) to shame.
Summary: This printer is everything I expected it to be and more. The quality of the prints are awesome - indistinguishable from real photographs, except for the lack of "Kodak" or "Fuji" printed on the backside. The print speed is as advertised, and its incredibly easy to use. I would highly recommend this printer to anyone who wants an easy solution for quality prints.
Possibly the best quality photo printer for the consumer

Summary: I would have given this a 5 if only full size paper (8.5 X 11) was supported. I was luckly to receive this online for Canon's list price and not some USED one asking more. Seems like price hikimg on a hot item which as I write, is vitrually back-ordered on every reputable 0n-line dealer. Try ordering "Red" label from dealers claiming "in stock". Those are the dealers rated 1 and 2 stars reliabilility on some sites.
Summary: Prints outstanding 4x6 borderless prints that equal the best film developers. I printed 3 pictures from my Canon Elph 400 and they looked great. This printer even comes with a rechargeable battery to make prints on the spot. Now if I can just stock up on enough photo printing supplies...
Summary: My wife got me one of these for Christmas. I own a Canon G2 camera and I have a Canon i850 printer. I mainly use them for pictures of my kids school activities. My wife knows that I like cool gadgets. I always take dozens of pictures at events and this would allow me to share them with the other parents... instantly. I'm giving the printer 4 stars becuase it does its job very well.
Summary: Canon's CP-200 and CP-300 printers are really cool compact gadgets. Finally after you take a picture on your digital camera not only can you print it imediatelily but print it anywhere (there's AC outlet). I recommend the 300 model more because it has rechargable battery pack, where-as 200 model doesn't. A big caveat is you need to carry extra ink and paper (and maybe batteries and charger!), so the total travel weight may be much more than you think.
