Summary: I have had this unit for about a month now. I have printed 200 photo's so far. This unit was easy to setup. The viewing window is ok, a bit small for my taste though. I'm blind as a bat. When I slide in my camera SD, I can only view the photos it contains on the unit window. I cannot view them in the photo software that I installed on my computer for this unit. Therefore, I cannot edit the photo's at all.
Summary: Pros - The image quality of this printer is fantastic. The fact one doesn't have to worry about ink cartridges drying out between usage is great. Cons - And to me a very BIG issue is the fact you cannot select the area of the photo to print or crop ending up with chopped heads or portion of the photo you'd really like included but is cut off (if using borderless).
Summary: Canon is a company I am loyal to. my camera's, printers, lenses and photo products are all canon. But this printer for its size definitely eats ink like crazy, and then buying extra paper requires planting seeds in the ground and hoping they will grow into money trees. I mean seriously guys, whats the deal with such expensive printing cartridges?
Excerpt: "...the time was £58. As Canon have now released a newer version (the CP810) cost on this model has gone down and you should be able to pick one up for around the £50 mark or cheaper if you look second hand. On top of this you need to consider the cost of ink and paper - these have to be purchased together in packs (the ink roller is designed to do a set number of sheets). You can buy a 36 sheet pack for around £14 or a 108 sheet pack for around £34. ...
Pros: easy to use, convenient, quality results
Cons: attracts dirt which leaves marks on prints, expensive on print per print basis, can't crop
