A great single-function inkjet for creative users, but it seems overpriced in comparison to Canon's own MFPs

Canon PIXMA iP4950


An inkjet printer with in-built duplexing, for less than £60. Sounds good, but can it live up to expectations?

No wireless connection ; Stick out paper tray ; Easy smudge high-gloss black case

Canon Pixma iP4950


Canon's flagship inkjet gets its annual update. Is it still the finest home photo printer out there?

Unbeatable photo quality and good speed, although it's barely changed from last year

Good enough.

Great Printer but ink hungry


I love this printer - it does everything I want But Do Not Turn It Off! Every time it is turned back on it chews through the ink. I used 4 full ink cartridges in 3 months and didn't print a single colour page. $88 worth of ink for nothing. It is...

Easy to use, good quality printing, great photos

Expensive on ink if turned on regularly

bought this printer because my Epsom r285 broke down, this canon printer is just as good as the Epsom if not a better printer easy to set up and you will start printing in 5 to 10 Min's
