Canon Pixma MP800R Photo All-In-One

 

Physical setup is easy and typical for a Canon AIO or printer. At 27.3 pounds and measuring 9.5 by 18.6 by 19.3 inches (HWD), the MP800R is about the same size and weight as other photo lab AIOs, yet it's still small enough to sit next to my display...

Fast performance. Printer, scanner, and standalone copier and photo lab. Ethernet and wireless network connection

No fax support. No automatic document feeder

The Canon Pixma MP800R Photo All-In-One doubles as a photo lab to print high quality photos directly from cameras, memory cards, slides, negatives, and photographic prints.

My worst purchase ever

 

I have a home office with 4 PC network and print all sort of things, what for business what for my son's school projects. I can get good quality documents on high quality paper but I find printing options limited and impossible to get decent print on...

It has a lot of features although an average user don't need most of them. It has quite good print quality. Text recognition, negative scanning (not tested)

Printing on Pixma MP800 is really expensive, set of 5 tiny cartridges is about �60. Scanning is terrible and labourus, it drives me mad

Consumer review by:

more than one tank magenta installed ????

 

The ink dried up too quickly and replacement cartridges are way too expensive. The magenta tank for some reason keeps sending up a message that there is more than one tank installed. As a result, I am not able to print and there is no forum or support...

I got a good deal with my Apple computer from the dealer

The ink certainly dries up fast. I do not do a lot of printing

Great Printer

 

Other than The Ink, One of the best printers i have owned.

I loved this printer from the get go. Did all the things I wanted from a printer and more. I have never had a Jam or a bad print from photo or text

Eats a lot of Ink. But they have re manufactured cartridges at half the cost at ocinkjets.com

Excellent for awhile

 

I've had this model for a least 2 yrs. There has been no problems until now. Currently, I get a message that more than one magenta ink tank is installed - not true. The fix has been to turn the unit off/on. However, this fix no longer work and we've...

Multifunctionality is definitely a plus

Product Specifications

The advanced PIXMA MP800 Photo All-In-One delivers spectacular Print Copy-Scan performance. It produces an amazing resolution of up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi, for remarkable detail and clarity. To achieve this, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a next-generation 3, 584-nozzle print head that ejects precise, consistent droplets as small as 1 picoliter. The result? Smoother, virtually grain-free images. Also, Canon's ContrastPLUS 5-color ink system - four dye-based inks and a pigment-based black ink - produces true-life photos with a wide color palette, along with laser-quality text. What about speed? A 4"x 6" photo lab quality borderless photo takes approximately 36 seconds. When copying, the AE (Auto Exposure) Copy feature automatically optimizes reproduction quality based on the type of original you're duplicating. The convenient Photo/Film buttons allow you to make reprints of your photos and 35mm film without using your computer. And now, scanning: the unit's higher-resolution CCD technology enables you to produce exceptional 2400-dpi scans, with vibrant 48-bit color depth. You can simultaneously scan up to 6 frames of 35mm film (negatives or positives), or up to 4 mounted slides. Plus, advanced paper handling features are built in - such as two paper trays and 2-sided printing. Want to evaluate and enhance your images before printing? Just insert your compatible memory card into one of the built-in card slots, then select the images on the extra-large 3.5" LCD color viewer. As needed, images will automatically be enhanced for red eye, sharpness and brightness values. Or, you can fine-tune the images yourself using the easy control panel. Then, print directly from the memory card! As an option, you can print directly from a PictBridge ready device such as a digital camera. This versatile printer is Bluetooth compatible, with Canon's optional USB Bluetooth adapter. When using either wireless option, your images will automatically be enhanced for sharpness. The Canon ChromaLife100 system combines the PIXMA MP800 Photo All-In-One's FINE print head technology and newly developed inks with select Canon photo papers, with results rivaling that of many conventional photos. And with the new smart LED ink tanks, your LED lamp flashes when ink is running low, and flashes even faster when nearing empty.
