Summary: Already have one of these and very pleased with the printer in itself. I brought this one as a back up as I work with a nonprofit organization that deals with abused children, we are getting ready to do a fund raiser and needed the extra printer to do photo's.
Summary: Pros: small and light so easy to take with you, like to weddings, family gatherings, etc, and give folks prints immediately. Prints 4 x 6 pix that look very good...as good a Walmart, for instance. Can get the ink cartridges inexpensively on ebay. Takes all sorts of memory cards or hook your camera up to Pict Bridge. My 11 year old son set it up. Cons: haven't run into any.
Summary: I bought Canon Pixma mini photo printer from eBay,because I wanted to collect my photo. It's working very well and I could get nice photos through it. I recomend to use semi mat or satin photo paper, becuse when I use the glossy paper, photo was not clear.
Summary: This printer was easy to set up and use. The quality of the prints are excellent and the speed of printing is good. I am still on the initial print ink cartrige but the number of prints so far is much better than many printers deliver. Unlike my last printer (Epson), I do not have to buy both the paper and ink cartrige together so the overall cost of printing should be very good. Overall and excellent low cost printer.
Summary: For a first timer on photo printer, I was quite proud of myself for putting it togeter out of the box. The installation process was easy, print quality was compatible to the one-hour photo print you get in the stores. Took me awhile to figure out how to print 4 imagies on 1 print. Overall, it is easy to use for basic 4x6 prints, printing from memory card or from camera. Unfortunately it does not print from computer and cannot print other sizes.
Summary: I use to have the PictureMate. I had a lot of trouble with it, seems there was just some sort of conflict with my software. I finally had enough of printing 10 pictures at a time and then rebooting and bought this little gem. Totally easy to use, has loads more printing options and the color on the prints is just fabulous. Is is difficult to find the cartridges locally, so be sure you buy plenty of extras to have on hand from Amazon.
