Mitch , Portrush Graphics or photo printing

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I wanted a printer that would do photographs to a reasonable standard and this machine fit the bill perfectly. I now get detail in my photographs that i could not get before.
Bad points:
I don't use the machine for everyday printing so could not express an opinion on its overall performance. But i cannot imagine the quality would deteriate from photo to document.

Confirmed purchaser Frequent home user

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Looks good and very quiet operation.
Bad points:
Many. Frequent routines to "clear" the print head (I suspect that is to increase your ink usage so you need to buy more). Then, to print graphics on standard paper (eg a map) the printer prints in discernable, and out of register strips, in one quarter of the page. On photo paper, if you try to print layers, the bottom layer is printed blurred (but only in one direction). I wish I had stayed with Epson!

Printers Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Superior prints and functionality for the best in home photo and document printing.

Canon’s range-topping A4 PIXMA inkjet printer makes creating beautiful, long-lasting prints quick and easy, with extra media-handling features for added versatility.

Photo printing

Experience exceptionally high-quality prints with fine detail thanks to a separate dye-based black ink for photos, 1pl ink droplets and a resolution of 9600×2400dpi*. A premium print engine makes it possible to create a photolab-quality print in approximately 20 seconds*. Quality and efficiency are maintained through the use of 5 Single Inks – simply replace individual ink tanks when they run out.

The ChromaLife100+ system** is a combination of the PIXMA iP4600, original inks and selected Canon genuine photo papers. Working together, these three unique components deliver beautiful, long-lasting photo prints.

Easy to use

A range of practical functions makes creating photos and documents even more exciting and productive. With Canon’s Easy-PhotoPrint EX it’s easy to print calendars, albums and photos. Auto Photo Fix automatically corrects photos, including red-eye correction; auto duplex makes double-side printing straightforward – saving on paper and producing professional-looking documents. Two paper trays enable users to have plain and photo paper loaded at once.

Document printing
Print text documents in mono or colour; a pigment black ink delivers crisp, sharp text. Single or double-sided printing is possible with the auto duplex feature – a practical and efficient function.

Print on DVD/CD

Managing your data storage is easy as you can personalise your DVDs and CDs for business, friends and family. Simply print direct onto the surface of the printable DVD or CD. CD-LabelPrint software lets you create layouts by adding your own text and images.

Print direct

There is no need for a PC to be involved in your print process. With PictBridge technology you have a quick and convenient way to print images from compatible digital cameras, camcorders or mobile phones.

Operating system

Windows and Mac OS X compatible*
