Just wondering if anyone has or has had this printer and what their thoughts are. I'm thinking of getting a new printer and will be using Canon ink at first (otherwise I think it may void the warranty) and Canon paper. I have the Canon pixma 6550 but since upgrading the software I get an error message about bi directional printing which the printer is incapable of anyway so perhaps time to bite the bullet.

I have had one of these for several years and think that it's really good. I use Canon OEM inks, with third party paper, and am very satisfied with the results. I rarely print as big as A3, but when I have I'm very pleased with the results. B&W gives really good results, provided you get the correct set up for the paper you are using - for me, that was a matter of trial and error, but I now have a set-up that works fine on the papers that I use.

It's much more reliable than my previous printer (not a Canon) which had to be used very regularly or the print heads would 'clog up', and then use loads of ink to clean them out. The Canon can sit for switched off several weeks at a time and so far it has worked perfectly when I fire it up.

It works fine with both Lightroom and Elements 12.

I don't use the printer wirelessly. but have it connected via USB - just a matter of preference. I also don't use it for anything other than photo printing - I have another printer for general use.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the heads up Phil.

I've used "Stinky Ink" for some time along with the PPD Pearl paper which as you have said takes a bit of trial and error to get just right (well with my old eyes anyway). There is quite a bewildering array of setting for the pixma 6550 so have just set it to one (can't recall off hand) and it is nothing to print three copies, all different, then ask Liz which she thinks is the "Nicest". If I decide on a new printer I'll keep the other until my inks have run out. I've also used A3+ paper but just because it was special offer at the time 2 for 1 or something.

Got a few days of Black Friday to decide so may well be another Christmas present for me

Best Regards

I'm looking as well Stan, but may end up with just an A4. Have you found the iP8750 at less than 189.99

I wish I could find it for that price Barrie, cheapest here is 269, which is about 240 pounds. Still looking for a printer and totally confused by what is out there.

[quote:3496ace15f="bforbes"]I'm looking as well Stan, but may end up with just an A4. Have you found the iP8750 at less than 189.99[/quote have a deal on for ink at 1/2

Best I've seen Barrie is 189 at John Lewis and PC World 199. Can be had with a fullset of ink for 245.

Stinky Ink have a deal on for compatible ink at 1/2 price about 7.50 instead of 14 which is for the 6 inks. PC World do 5 Canon inks but the grey alone is 18 so about 79 for a set.
I need A3 for the club competitions, with the frame 50x40mm.

Good luck with getting a bargain.

John Lewis is where I was looking at a Canon A4 printer with LAN connection. I was intrigued by the A3 printer for two reasons, one it's only 10 more than the A4 and two it has the grey ink for B&W. which is not a feature I can find in any A4 printer.
