Summary: I bought this as Canon is the best printing brand which i have used. Starting up a wedding stationery business, I needed something which had crisp quality and could take good quality thick cardstock. Without moving up to the professional range (which is about 4 times the price), this was the best option available. It prints up to A3, and as small as 6cm width, so a wide variety of paper sizes can be used.
Summary: I bought this primarily to print some of my illustrations and photos and so far it has given very good results on 'watercolour' and 'canvas' papers. The few tests on glossy photo paper are high quality (resolution), but I am battling to get more natural colours, as printing from both, Photoshop and Illustrator, with various colour and saturation adjustments, are still giving my prints too much red....
Summary: This is an excellent quality printer, I bought it for my business as I need to print on A3 paper and it is worth every penny. The print quality is excellent and I haven't found anything that I could possibly complain about.
Summary: I bought this machine in 2013. It is without doubt the best printer I have ever bought although canon inks are very expensive, you can get recycled cartridges from other sources at very reasonable prices. I make a lot of greetings cards which requires pretty thick paper and which jammed my HP A3+ every time. The Canon, because it feeds from the back will take 280 - 300 gsm easily.
Summary: Great piece of kit. I print mainly financial reports however my daughter needed a printer for colour photographs of her work and this fits the bill. It's economical neat and compact and very easy to operate. I haven't purchased Canons inks so I cannot say if it's economical from that point of view I found that the inks sold by "Inkredible" were very inexpensive and the print quality is very good.It does the job for us.
Summary: Cheap, fast delivery, the print quality is very good for the price, hasnt let me down at all and made life at uni as a graphic design student a lot easier. a bit annoying that it consists of 2 buttons and no small screen but i've had no problems with it yet. set up and installation is quick and easy ALTHOUGH IT DIDNT COME WITH CABLE TO CONNECT IT TO COMPUTER which annoyed me quite a bit.
Summary: Very rare that I am moved to write a review, but I have been nervous about buying a photo printer for some time. Here is why... I few years ago I worked somewhere where we had a need on a daily basis to print photos of high quality and at speed. My stakeholder there was somewhat particular about quality and all I remember is almost weekly buying a new printer for the purpose and continued to be disappointed.
Summary: I haven't had this printer for long, I upgraded from a Canon ix4000, but so far it does a great job. It's certainly seems to be superior to the 4000. A bit finicky to get it up and running, but well worth the effort.
Summary: The last three printers I have bought have been 3 in 1 and this time around I wanted to get something that does what it says. To me wifi is pointless and so is having card readers as I do all my editing on my PC and print from my PC. I wanted a quality printer that printed all kinds of documents and photos in A3 for a good price without all the bells and whistles. I ordered this printer two days ago and it arrived this morning.
