Canon Pixma mini320


When I reviewed the mini260, I described it as looking like an oversize CD player. The mini320, at 3.2 by 10.2 by 8.9 inches (HWD), looks like an oversize mini260. It's also relatively heavy for a portable printer, at 5.4 pounds, but includes a...

Prints on a variety of paper sizes up to 5 by 7 and 4 by 8 as well as 4 by 6. Fast. Bluetooth option. Battery option

Photos scratch easily. Cost per photo can be relatively high, depending on the paper

The Canon Pixma mini320 prints high-quality photos on a variety of paper sizes up to 5 by 7 and 4 by 8 inches, but photos tend to scratch easily.

Canon Pixma mini320 (3.5 mice)


Though the mini320's prints are attractive and the scroll-wheel interface is fun to use, the printer isn't a very wise investment given its increased cost per print. Pitted against the PictureMate Zoom, which prints superior photos at faster speeds for...

Has the same problems as its predecessor ; faint scratches on prints ; no black-and-white option ; cost per print higher than last year ; doesn't include preview mode for edited photos

The mini320 sports an attractive white and silver casing, reminiscent of the iPod. Selecting and editing photos is easy using the mini320's scroll wheel. However, after you apply your edits, the printer doesn't offer you the option to preview your...

Canon Pixma Mini320 Printer Review


Prints both 5x7- and 4x6-inch sizes ; photos exhibit remarkable detail ; low-profile shape ; wide-viewing-angle LCD screen ; optional rechargeable battery

Expensive cost per print ; small LCD screen ; preproduction unit had slight reddish tint on some photos ; longevity rating less than Epson PictureMate Zoom

This snapshot printer's big, beautiful 5x7-inch photos are real attention getters. The high print costs and small LCD screen are the only drawbacks.

Canon Pixma mini320


Among Canon's recent printer releases this summer was the Canon Pixma mini320 compact photo printer, the replacement for the Canon Pixma mini260. The mini320 incorporates all the features other Canon inkjets have become know for, including the...

The mini320's design, while basically the same as the mini260, sets the printer apart from others in its class. In fact, it looks somewhat like a shrunken version of Canon's all-in-one (AIO) photo printers, with a sturdy carrying handle. This printer...

This is a wonderful little photo printer for the road. I've always had great luck with Canon products and this is no exception. The photos print quickly and clearly and they are indistinguishable from photo lab in quality and appearance. I can't wait...
