Great printer, not for amateurs, however

Ranty, Amazon
16 March 2010
  • Summary: This printer makes exceptional prints on a wide variety of paper and is built like a tank. However, it's definitely not for point and shoot hobbyists, or even impatient amateurs. Ink usage seems far less than my comparable epsons, and this printer is never clogged, meaning no wasted paper. However, it takes a while to figure out, and it takes a bit of work.

Love it so far!

  • Excerpt: Finally got the software downloaded from the Canon site, and got the printer working. Used up the sample roll of Premium Matte paper that comes with the printer. VERY pleased with the results! Now I just have to get a handle on calibrating and profiling...

You won't be dissappointed

jimjsp, Adorama

  • Excerpt: B & W prints the best I've seen so far. This printer is a breeze to install, easy to use and gives prints that amaze. For me it has been an incentive to take even better photographs. I use mostly the Premium Matte paper and the textures are better than I thought was possible. I held out for quite a while to buy until the prices dropped and the pigment inks got better.
  • Pros: Easy setup, Easy to use, Good Media Handling, High quality output, ink is the best yet, Reliable

DO NOT UPGRADE TO 1.38 FIRMWARE

DJ-Kwixar, Adorama
7 December 2009
  • Excerpt: If printheads start to clog with ver 1.35 you can bypass and continue printing with NO streaking or other issues. With ver 1.38 as soon as it even thinks it has a clog, you cannot even run a head test.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy setup, Easy to use, Good Media Handling, High productivity, High quality output, Low Running Cost, Reliable, Small Footprint
  • Cons: print head issues with ver 1.38

Good Value

Vision Dream, Adorama
13 October 2009
  • Excerpt: I have used the iPF5100 and the iPF6100 for over a year now. These two printers consistently out put some of my best works. The color saturation is unbelievable and the black and white prints are the best I have seen with any printer. I have total control of full tonal quality of my black and whites. The only con about the iPF5100 is that the foot print is much larger than it's competition's. You will need a good size table or purchase Canons metal cabinet.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy setup, Easy to use, Good Media Handling, High productivity, High quality output, Low Running Cost, Reliable
  • Cons: Large footprint

Excellent product

Rod, Adorama
21 September 2009
  • Excerpt: I researched long and hard before I bought this printer. I have to say it paid off! I am extremely happy with my Canon iPF 5100. Colors and print quality is better than what I was getting from the lab. This is partly because I have better control over the paper I use. In addition, prints are relatively inexpensive so if I want a re-print with changes it's fast and easy. The printer is BIG and it requires some space, but what would you expect with a large format printer?
  • Pros: Durable, Easy setup, Good Media Handling, High quality output, Low Running Cost, Reliable, Small Footprint
