Summary: This printer does an excellent job. The colors are vivid and the clarity is very crisp. The only negative is you are restricted to the canon paper with end tabs. Good value for a compact snap shot printer.

Summary: Have had it for about six weeks. I ordered the one hundred paper pack with its ink container by Canon. Principal user is my spouse, but I have had a fun time comparing it to the results of my HP Photosmart with three inks that I paid a whole lot more for.
Summary: I received the cp720 model along with a canon digital camera and I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of prints that this prints- I would have believed that these photos were printed from a lab if I didn't know otherwise.
Summary: Out of the box, with little instruction was able to print from camera, computer, memory card. Don't expect much from printer editing tools: they are quite primative. Photos are good resolution and at least as true as the store printed. And is easily taken with when travel to send as postcards home.
Summary: What do you call people like me? Photo-aspirants? I'm not a professional photographer. But I shoot images all the time, sometimes a dozen or two a day, trying to create a picture other people will find curious, entertaining, weird, surprising, silly, shocking: "refrigerator-quality," I guess.
Summary: This is a great little printer; it is very easy to use and makes great prints right out of the camera. The paper and cartridge are very easy to replace and the printer tells you when to replace the cartridge etc. The controls are easy to operate and get the hang of.
