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: 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 own a Canon A70 digital camera and wanted a non-inkjet photo printer for lab-quality photos. The CP 300 exceeded all of my expectations. The 4x6 paper comes ready with post card formatting on the back for an absolutely perfect road trip tool! Just take the photo, print it in the car (the cp 300 comes with a battery pack!), slap a stamp on it, and toss it in a mailbox. Brilliant.
Summary: So here is my review of the Canon CP-300 printer. It is a bit long, but you should learn everything you need to know about this product in that time. Here goes. I was supposed to get this for christmas, but it was on backorder for quite some time, and it has just arrived today, February 23. I was impressed with the product before even setting it up; the packaging job canon did was nice and protected everything through the shipping process.
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: I just received my Canon Powershot S50 and this printer. The pictures are awesome. They are clear like photos and they print very quickly. I was able to set it up myself, which means it was very easy!!
