Conclusion: The Canon Pixma iP6000 is a throwback to an earlier generation of photo printers that did a good job with photos but not much else. Given its price, it's unacceptably slow for business applications, making it a reasonable choice only if you want a second printer specifically for photos.
Pros: Direct printing from memory cards and cameras. 2.5-inch LCD for previewing and editing photos. Reasonably fast performance and very good quality for photos.
Cons: Slow performance for business applications. Graphics suffer from extreme paper curl.
Excerpt: The new Pixma range from Canon breaks the mould in inkjet printer design, with a spare -- almost bare -- 'bread box' design which occupies minimal space on the desktop and is very comtemporary-looking. We looked at two models, the ip5000 and the iP6000D, which we felt would appeal to Photo Review readers. Though the Pixma printers do a (literally) fine job printing text and graphics, these models are all about printing photos.
