Photo: Canon S900 Color Bubble Jet

 

A combination of the fastest speed, a nearly top quality score, and a midrange price make the Canon S900 Color Bubble Jet Printer our clear Editors' Choice. It looks and operates like a regular ink jet but prints superb photographs.

Canon S9000

 

It's a wide-format photo printer for your desktop that enables you to print photos that rival those from professional labs, from 4" x 6" up to 13" x 19". All at incredible speeds - would you believe just over four minutes to print a 13x19" print? How...

Product Specifications

The S900 Photo Printer from Canon delivers truly amazing quality at unheard-of speeds, right out of the box. Push the print button and, in just about 37 seconds, you'll have a spectacular 4" x 6" borderless print rivaling those you get from a professional photo lab - in your hands. In approximately 60 seconds, you can produce incredible 8.5" x 11" photo prints just as easily. When printed on Canon Photo Paper Pro, photos retain their brilliance and vibrancy for approximately 25 years. Technological innovation makes the S900 photo printer one of the highest-performing photo printers available. The sophisticated printhead features 3, 072 nozzles - double that of previous models in this range - making it possible to print faster and with greater detail. Plus, Canon's advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology combines cutting-edge achievements in ink droplet size, accurate ink application, consistent droplet quality and ink composition. The result is superior 2400 x 1200 dpi resolution, up to 49 gradation levels, reduced graininess and breathtaking detail and color reproduction. The S900 Photo Printer features the Canon Think Tank System. Six individual ink tanks, one for each color, make it easy to replace just the color that runs out, rather than the entire cartridge. Plus, a unique optical low-ink sensor warns you with an on-screen message when an ink tank is low, giving you plenty of time to replace the tank before it runs out.
