Pros: I'm used to having to fiddle, after having for years an HP 10ps Designjet; it had the same 13x19 format. I thought I was getting good color then--until I compared prints with my i9900, obtained off ebay for less than $200. Wider color gamut than the hp. T
Cons: I had to replace the printhead. Fortunately, I found some blue cleaning goop that dissolves ink, which works to help keep the new printhead working. The machine is messy and wastes ink, so being a starving amateur I need to use the 3rd party bulk ink. Th
Summary: This unit uses paper sizes from smaller than 4x6 all the way 13x19. It&apos;s the only photo printer I&apos;ve owned.

The print head failed during the warranty period, so Canon sent me a replacement and an email explaining how to switch it out. The results are mind-boggling, eye-popping, astounding for any photo printer of any kind.
Summary: I bought no power on used printer and when I received was no power supply.I send e-mail.seller sand to me power supply, so I leave feedback for him. and I opened printer to trying to fix, but was no control pcb. I am unlucky. save money not works.

At that time, I had been looking at resolution of media versus lens resolution.
Summary: There is really nothing to dislike and every positive reaction is well justified. I happened to buy it because I always buy top of the line and don't pay attention to the price , perhaps because may be I am blessed and can afford it. From the first print that came out of this printer it was a marvelous incentive to take up cruising and taking pictures that I had never done before and as you might imagine I have a huge collection of especially outdoors in the Bahamas,...
