Summary: I have had this printer for a few years now and I wish I had bought something else. As a few other people have mentioned this printer is expensive to maintain. The ink costs a fortune. It printed decent photos for the first few months we had it, but now all the photos we print come out looking horribly. And I have been having the same smearing problem that another reviewer commented on. The pictures are of such bad quality that I don't bother to print photos anymore.
Summary: There are no Linux drivers for this printer. If you have this printer and run Linux, please contact tech support about the problem. They might get some sense, and produce drivers at some point. I've had the printer over a year, and no sign of drivers.
Summary: I got the printer only to find that it doesn't come with a cord to connect it to your computer. After wasting my time going to three different places, the cheapest one was for $50. Amazon's advertisement that this is "free" with the purchase of a camera is misleading to say the least as it's not honest about the extra $$$$ you have to spend just for a connecting cord. In my opinion, this has been very frustrating and a TOTAL RIPOFF!!
Summary: Dont be fooled by the low price. The printer uses combined color cartridges with very small capacity. These have to be replaced even if one of the colors gets finished and cost more than the printer. Not sure what canon was thinking - are we supposed to use the printer once and then throw it away instead of getting an ink cartridge. ps : I have traditionally been a big fan of canon having used their photo printers for the last 3 years.
