Ashlee got the Canon i9900 Photo Printer as an early Christmas present. Of course, it wasn't supposed to be early, but she got home before I did and it shipped in a Canon i9900 box, not in plain brown cardboard. Argh!
So anyway, here comes a call to photogaphers for entries into a local Arts Council Gallery. Ashlee put in two peices, I only had one to submit...we needed them on?paper and 8x10 was the minimum size for submissions
We were on a short timeline, and were a bit hesitant to use this for the first time to print pictures for a gallery showing. After getting the scans tweaked and the pics off the EOS 20D tweaked, we were ready to go. I won't bother with the 8x10 shots because I didn't take any, but the 13x19 shot will most certainly get your attention. I know you can't see it in the pics, but this thing is lab quality to most viewers. I can't tell unless I look at it under magnification, not that I am an expert or anything.
Let's take a look.
The finished product,?drying, in front of the monitor:
We didn't need it to fill the whole page, as the framing was for 11x16, but wow. That's big. And yes, it does borderless printing at this size.
Here she is with the hood open:
Here is a full frontal:
Remember, this paper is 13 inches wide. Here she is with the hood open again:
This thing is a monster, but I have to hand it to Canon. The quality is very impressive. Something like 6400 jets putting out 2 pico-liter droplets. Neat! Here's a peek at the inks behind the beast:
You counted right....eight ink tanks. They are only about $12 per, not too bad a price. We haven't printed a whole lot so far on this thing, but no worries with the ink running out fast. The tanks haven't moved.
All we can say is "Wow!" If you are currently in the market for a HUGE photo printer, I can say without a doubt that you would be completely happy with this photo printer.
