Newest Canons vs. Epsons
I am about to buy a new photo printer. My old Epson Stylus Photo 870 has
been good. Now, for my specifications.
Cost - Under $250
Inks - Must be six ink of better and of latest archival evolution (ex.
Papers - I tend to use high-end paper developed by the actual manufacturer
Basically, I use Photoshop to restore damaged photos. The pictures I sell
should be able to last 20-30 years under glass, and should be as good as
those produced by an automated photo developing machine.
This all said - which model is going to be best between Epson and Canon?
Thanks ...Epson Perfection 4990: Pro vs Photo, vs Canon 9950F
Anyone know what the difference is between the Epson 4990 Photo and the 4990
Pro, other than the price? Is there any difference in hardware or supplied
accessories, or just the included software? I will be scanning primarily
photos, some of which are very old and need to be cleaned up, but I might
also try scanning my 30+ year old set of slides. I use Photoshop, but I am
not particularly proficient at photo re-touching, so I would like the
scanner to do some of the hard work in terms of improving the images, before
I work on them.

Hi all. I just came across this very favorable review of a new Canon
photo printer with 12 (yes, twelve) ink carts.
The reviewer is very positive on this printer and sees it as a strong
competitor to the Epson 4800. What do you all think? Check out the
cost of cartridges!
Oh, the review didn't speak about a capability to print on CDs. :)

...Epson or Canon Photo Printers (not AIO)
I saw a Canon vs Epson thread but I am looking more at photo printers and
best photo quality.
Its time to replace my aging Epson R210.
Many years back, I owned an HP deskjet 400 but decided their quality was at
most third amongst the Top 3 (Epson, Canon, HP).
Canon almost died with crap quality when Epson released their 1440 dpi
printers (canon had standard 360dpi and premium model 600dpi) many years ago
but have since bounced back very strong in recent years.
The Epson R230 would have been a very good replacement but I also wanted

The IP3000 prints business documents substantially better than the Epson
R300. It is a full duplex printer with dual paper feed. If you want to
print photos it can also do that however you might want to get the
IP4000 for better photo quality.

I'm trying to decide between a Canon i860 and a Canon MP360. The
MP360 is a printer/scanner/copier while the i860 is a Photo Printer.
I've compared the two units closely and can't see many differences,
except the i850 uses 4 cartridges instead of the usual 2 and is a bit
faster. They both can print borderless photos, can print on photo
paper, and print 4800x1200 dpi. Plus they are about the same price on
newegg.com. Are there any features that the i860 has that the MP360
doesn't? Otherwise why not get the MP360 and get a scanner too. any
info would be appreciated...Epson ColorLife paper in a Canon photo printer ?

I want to buy a basic photo printer.

Which one is better for quality of prints and trouble free operations?
Thanks in advance.
> R200 and iP3000 seem to have same price. I think R200 has five color and

I own both.
The r200 has extra light cyan and light magenta
The r300 is the same but has the fancy screen and pictbridge
The ip3000 has the usual black cyan magenta yellow, smaller drop size
The ip4000 has two blacks and the usual inks 2pl
The ip5000 has the same but smaller 1pl ink drop size.
The ip6000 has a larger 2pl but offers the light cyan/magenta inks
I leaned tward the r200 for out of the box print accuracy. It worked
fine for 6 months before it clogged and overflowed with ink. Your
experence could be better, but in the past the epsons clogged easily.
I'm told this one is better. But if you really like the Epson r200,
and you buy OEM ink, it's only typicaly $25 extra to get the printer
with ink than just ink.
For trouble free i'm taking a chance on the Canon. I bought the ip3000
cause the r200 was in the shop, and it was cheeper for the printer than
the ink for the r200. I've not owned it as long so I can't report any
trouble, but it at least has a detachable head and a diaper ...Epson Photo 960 vs Canon i950

I just bought my first digital camera (Canon PowerShot A70). Now I'm ready
to buy my first photo printer. I like the Canon i950 and have read great
things about it, but then I found some articles about a new printer coming
out in October called Canon i960. It looks like it's the same printer as the
i950, except it has a high-speed USB and is able to print directly from a
digital camera, whereas the i950 could not. The puzzling thing is that the
i960 is going to be much cheaper than the i950. Why would that be?!? The
i960 is about $199 and the i950 is about $249.

Can anyone offer me advice on which of the two is better value for money?. I

I understand that Epsons really need to use their own paper as you may get
blotching. Is this true?. How about the canons? would i have to stick to their

which has served me well. Im not too fussed about the lack of card reader as

to the paper or the ink? . Lol, Sorry bout the questions.. Any advice would be
The IP3000 uses the same old ink that Canon has used for a long time, it's
cheap, widely available and very easy to refill. Print quality is excellent,
and it's also a full duplexing printer which is cool. 2 paper feeds, and a
very nice driver.
There are reports of print head failures, but I've not had any issues with
it. It's an amazingly good value.

As per subject line.
It happened previously a short time ago, and I did what is recommended in

Press "Resume button", allow LED light to flash 3 times, release button,
It worked then.

Which is the best printer? Main points below.
1. Accuracy when printing to CD/DVD (My old Epson 900 was a devil to set up)
going off center and needed adjusting.
2. Economy. Although I can get the ink for about the same cost which
printer performs best.
3. Print quality Photo / CD DVD
To put it into perspective here are the best prices I have found for the
printers so far.
1. Epson R300 �84.95
2. Canon I865 �119.99
3. Canon IP4000 �99.99
I have the R300 and love it. I do not love the price of the
replacement ink. I have printed about 200 DVD and CD labels with it
and have not had a problem. The software that comes with the printer
has performed well. Check out the options for re-inking of this
machine and you will be pleased with it. I believe that Canon has the
same type of chip on its cartridges. They only allow a certain amount
of ink to be dispensed and then they stop. There is a workaround for
Epson, I don't know about Canon.
