Canon Pixma iP100

 

This mobile printer, the first of its class with 9,600 dpi resolution, delivers excellent quality and fast speeds.

Beautiful photo quality ; Fast performance ; Compact design

Noisy ; No memory card support ; Heavier than its predecessor

The only reason we hesitate to recommend the iP100 is its price: At ’49, the Canon Pixma iP100 is expensive. Some all-in-ones, including Canon’s Editors’ Choice–winning Pixma MP Series, offer comparable quality and speed for less money. But if mobility...

Canon Pixma iP100

 

Canon continues its lineage of successful Pixma portable inkjet printers with the iP100, an upgrade from last year's iP90v . This time around, Canon increased the number of ink nozzles and doubled the maximum resolution to 4,800x1,200 dpi color. As a...

High-resolution ink nozzles produce excellent prints; significant speed improvements over previous model; retains familiar design.

No Wi-Fi or carrying case options; lacks integrated media card reader; high price tag relative to those of desktop printers.

It isn't cheap compared to standard printers, but the Canon Pixma iP100 has the highest resolution available in the mobile printer market and prints at an impressive speed to boot. If you simply must have a printer with you at all times, the iP100...

Canon Pixma iP100 Photo Printer

 

Mobile printers are a bit like ultraportable laptops. They're noticeably smaller and easier to carry around than their standard-size cousins, and you're charged a premium price for the small size. If you need to print on the go—say, an updated...

Portable. Fast. Prints directly from PictBridge Cameras. Bluetooth, rechargeable battery, and car adapter options

Heavier than some laptops, at 4.4 pounds. Prints fewer pages per cartridge than its closest competitor ; Watch the Canon Pixma iP100 Video Review

The Canon Pixma iP100 Photo Printer is notably fast for a portable printer, and a significant improvement over the model it replaces.

Printing resolution and speeds are well above what is offered in other mobile printers available on the market and the impressive battery life of 290 sheets means the iP100 should always be ready to print your photos. There are 2 separate ink tanks,...

Consumer review by:

"Not so portable printer."

 

If you travel a lot and need a actual portable printer then I do not recommend this printer. It is useless unless you are always near a power source.

None I can think of.

Printer is sold as mobile printer but does not include a battery. The only place to get a battery is through BatteriesPlus or Canon and they both said that it would take a week.

Consumer review by:

"Quick, Great Quality, Portable"

 

I bought this printer about a year and a half ago and I have used it continually on the go with no problems. I have a roller computer bag that I use to transport the printer and my laptop and I always have a way to print. I use this printer to print...

This little printer has great print quality and gets the job done quickly. The quality of photos, flyers, brochures and text printing can be used for any need. For the on the go person this is a printer you should check out.

At this point I do not have any. For those that say ink is expensive, ink is expensive for any printer you run. I have an HP printer that has individual cartridges and I spend just as much replacing ink.
