i got this printer with my Canon digital camera for christmas, I don't have a printer at home, and was always taking my memory card to the supermarket to print off my pictures for around 30p each. But, now its very easy to print off the odd photo at home for whatever purpose I need. The ink cartridges are reasonably priced, around £10 for 40 pictures with the paper included if you go to the Canon website, and you get a taster cartridge to print 5 pictures with the printer which is good to test the printer! The picture quality is great and its very easy to use and sooo simple to set up initially which I wasn't expecting! The ink cartridge is so easy to insert and you simply pop your memory card in (a variety are accepted!!) and the pictures are shown on a full colour screen on the top of the printer, you can then choose to print or rotate etc the picture. Been able to see the picture your printing is a huge benefit and the fact you can just pop in your memory card means that its not limited to one camera or one kind of camera. You can also pront direct from your computer and can connect via the camera if it doesnt hold a memory card!! With the added extra of been able to print from your mobile phone via bluetooth is also a huge plus!!! It means that you dn't even need a computer to print any pictures you have!!! I love my little printer, its so compact and can be stored away without been in the way of other things, and can be quickly pulled out and set up!! Would definitely recommend to other users!!!
