Canon i9100


The i9100 incorporates the ultra high-density multi-nozzle print head featuring 3,072 nozzles (the largest number of nozzles in its class) to achieve print speeds of approximately 37 seconds for a borderless 4" x 6" photo print, approximately one...

Quality from the i9100 is achieved by using the advanced Microfine Droplet Technology with 4800 x 1200 dpi, twice as much as the S9000, and six-color photo printing using Canon's Individual Ink Tank system and Vivid Photo. Lightfast for approximately...

Canon i9100 Photo Printer


With five models to choose from, ranging from $80 to $500, Canon has a printer for almost anyone who prints photos. For the casual user, there's the Canon i455 Desktop Photo Printer and the i475D. For those who want better performance and a separate...

Canon I9100 WIDE FORMAT PRINTER 4800X1200DPI (Canon-8535A001)


They even furnished a giant installation step-by-step sheet on how to install the printer. AS they went along, they would say "if this doesn't work, try this " I never had to do anything else. The printing softwre is easy to use, and it works as...

Canon I9100 WIDE FORMAT PRINTER 4800X1200DPI (Canon-8535A001)


So far this is the best printer purchase I have made. Yes, some may say the Canon i9100 is over priced but I am a firm believer in the idea that sometimes you have to pay more to get more. If you shop around you can save yourself quite a bundle. I...

Canon I9100 WIDE FORMAT PRINTER 4800X1200DPI (Canon-8535A001)


I was really torn between the Canon i9100, the less expensive Epson Sylus 1280, and the HP9000 series. I owned an HP for many years with great satisfaction. A couple of things swayed me toward the Canon: I own a Canon G3, which produces incredibly...

Canon I9100 WIDE FORMAT PRINTER 4800X1200DPI (Canon-8535A001)


Great photo printer. It is the best on the market at the moment (IMHO). I have taken some great shots with my Digital Rebel 300D 6.34 megapixel camera. Printing 13*19 looks better than what a photo lab could do. I have mounted three 13*19's in...

Great Prints! Outstanding ease of use. This is the photo printer is you are serious about getting the best prints

Product Specifications

The i9100 Photo Printer is a powerful desktop machine whose remarkable output can rival that of a professional processing lab. It's capable of producing edge-to-edge true borderless prints, from 4" x 6" prints up to breathtaking 13" x 19" size, with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. Think of it: you can take a digital picture, set your printing parameters and be holding an amazing 13" x 19" poster-size borderless print in approximately 5 minutes. The i9100 Photo Printer features advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology, which combines revolutionary techniques in ink droplet size and quality with accurate ink application and composition, for spectacular photo results. Its print head features 3, 072 precisely machined nozzles - providing the quality enhancement people have come to expect from one of the leaders in digital imaging. True borderless 4" x 6" photos can be produced in about 37 seconds because of the high-density print head. It achieves a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi with ultra-small 4-picoliter droplets revealing precise details in your photographs that many other large-format printers just can't match - more nozzles are better! The i9100 Photo Printer features an intelligent ink management system coupled with six individual ink tanks designed to help eliminate ink waste and reduce printing costs. Replace only the color that runs out rather than the entire cartridge. A unique low-ink sensor alerts you when ink levels are low, so you can drop in a new tank and avoid running out of ink unexpectedly in the middle of printing your super-sized 13" x 19" prints.
