Canon Pixma iP8500 Photo Printer

PC Magazine
6 June 2006
  • Conclusion: The Canon Pixma iP8500 Photo Printer is designed for photos. Eight ink colors yield a wide color gamut, and 6,144 nozzles let it print photos at high speed. It's not designed with business applications in mind, but it's still fast enough for use as an all-purpose printer.
  • Pros: Impressively fast, high-quality photos. Separate cartridge for each ink color. Prints directly from PictBridge cameras.
  • Cons: No memory card slots. Text/graphics quality and speed are good but not in the same league as photo quality and speed.

  • Pros: High speed, low running costs
  • Cons: Lack of flash media slots

  • Summary: Подводя итог, хотелось бы отметить быструю и качественную печать фотографий, что и является основной функцией данной модели. Детальные, четкие, без излишней насыщенности и резкости отпечатки порадуют многих пользователей. Очень хорошая печать текста, не свойственная большинству фотопринтеров, также добавляет баллы в корзину iP8500.

  • Conclusion: Forte de ses huit couleurs, cette imprimante jet d’encre produit de très belles photos. C’est d’ailleurs sa spécialité. Car pour le reste la Pixma iP8500 se situe un peu à la traîne par rapport à ses concurrentes.
