Excellent product!"Having always been an HP business printer guy I hymed and hawed about getting a Canon photo printer for a long while. When this unit was on sale for $150 off I thought it was the time to take the leap.
I have multiple Canon cameras and we're happy with them so I expected great output with this printer. The fact that it is also a wide-format printer is a huge bonus.
The Print speed on highest quality blows my mind. This printer could be done a 11x17 in the time any of my HPs might have been done a fifth of an 8x10! I have done several prints including about 25 5x7+ prints for a photo book and still no sign of disappointment of reduction of ink displayed on screen.
It's a fairly large unit but worth every penny even at full price!
I would recommend this to any photographer who wants on demand prints at home."

Great printer"I am a photography enthusiast and have resisted printing my own photos for concerns about quality. I finally decided to purchase a printer for ease of printing my own photos. I love, love, love this printer! Set up was extremely easy, took about 10 minutes out of the box. Prints wirelessly effortlessly. My very first print was an 8X10 which printed perfectly as expected. I have printed 5x7 and 11x14 with ease. Print quality great for enthusiast level photographer. Price point is exceptional. Be aware that is has a fairly large footprint, but otherwise aesthetically is attractive. I would highly recommend this printer for enthusiast printing, with ease, high quality and large format."

The Printer I've been waiting for!!!!"This is a GREAT wide format printer for people who like things to be kept simple with high quality results. It took about ten minutes to set it up and within 20 minutes I had my first 13x19 print! This printer has a rear feed which is great for heavy media like canvas and specialty papers and although it has Wi-Fi it isn't encumbered with any other devices, screens, etc. to distract from the primary purpose of printing.
So far I have tried about 6 kinds of paper from Canvas to Baryta and the results are making the paper look even better than expected.
Because it uses readily available dye ink the cost of printing should be lower than other alternatives and sourcing ink won't be a problem.
I heartily recommend this printer to anyone who wants wide format, quality, and affordability.
P.S. I also like the clean look of this printer!"
No. This is a printer only. There is no scanning unit attached.
