Canon USA Pixma IP4000 Inkjet Photo Printer

 

The Canon Pixma iP4000 will be at home in any small office where people need to print high-quality photos as well as text documents. It does a good job on glossy, borderless photo prints, and it has a few paper handling features that typical photo...

In addition to supplying a capable printer driver, Canon provides its own Easy-PhotoPrint application (for printing individual photos), PhotoRecord (for combining photos into album sheets), and Easy-WebPrint (for printing Web pages). The printer comes...

Dual paper trays and a duplexer make this photo printer handy for office tasks.

This versatile unit is a good combination printer for office documents and high-quality photos, as long as you don't mind less-than-perfect plain paper output.

Canon PIXMA iP4000

 

The Pixma iP4000 replaces last year's i860 model and will retail for an estimated $149.99. The iP4000 is Canon's fastest consumer inkjet printer to date with print speeds up to 25 ppm in black and 17 ppm in color. It blazes through 4x6" borderless...

Direct photo printing is made possible without a computer thanks to the front-mounted PictBridge USB port. PictBridge is an industry standard for digital printers, digital cameras and digital camcorders that allows the direct printing of images from...

Canon Pixma IP4000

 

Measuring 6.8 by 16.5 by 11.3 inches (HWD) and weighing in at 14.9 pounds, the iP4000 is currently the biggest of the PIXMA printers. It offers both a USB 1.1 and parallel port for connection to your computer, as well as a second USB connector in front...

Fast performance for photos and business applications. Direct printing from cameras. Good or better output quality across the board. Duplex printing. Two input paper trays

No memory-card slots

Canon calls the PIXMA iP4000 a photo printer, but it's a good choice for all-purpose printing. It offers high speed for graphics, text, and photos; output quality that varies from just short of very good to just short of excellent; and unusually...

The best and only printer I have ever owned

 

I hope this is the only printer I will own for the rest of my life. Canon's Windows 7 driver on their website would not work properly. I have a network that has one W7-64 OS laptop and an XP box that had the printer hooked up to (had to have it hooked...

Extremely dependable, been there through thick and thin, and never had any hardware problems with it. Bought it in November 2004 and it still works great. I signed up for CNET just to review this printer

It can run out of ink (lol). Seriously, I have only had one problem with this printer, described in the summary

LOVE this printer!

 

I have been using this printer for 4 years and the colors are still as good as when I first bought it! I love the ease transitioning from single-sided to double-sided printing. I don't know how I'll upgrade this printer though. My new computer doesn't...

Color good, double-sided printing capabilities, text prints well, speed of printing

I can't connect it to my new computer

Product Specifications

If you're looking for outstanding quality, high speed and advanced convenience features, the Canon Pixma iP4000 Photo Printer is ideal. Its ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system with four dye-based inks plus a pigment-based black ink produces true-life photos with improved color saturation and contrast along with laser-quality text. Plus, it achieves a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi, for exceptional detail and photo-realism. Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance 1,856-nozzle print head that ejects consistent, prescribed-volume droplets as small as 2 picoliters. Simply put: more nozzles with higher accuracy equal better results at impressive speeds. You can even produce edge-to-edge borderless photos in 4 x 6, 5 x 7 and 8.5 x 11 in. sizes, with the look and feel of traditional photographs. Using the Pixma iP4000 Photo Printer is fast and easy. How fast? It can produce up to 25 ppm in black and up to 17 ppm in color, and a 4" x 6" borderless print takes only 36 seconds. How easy? With direct photo printing, you can even print without a computer: simply connect any PictBridge-compatible digital camera or DV camcorder, and print! To help reduce printing costs, this efficient system has five individual ink tanks that let you replace only the color that runs out, rather than an entire cartridge containing unused ink. Plus, a unique low-ink sensor alerts you when ink levels are low, so you are prepared to just drop in a new tank as needed.
