PIXMA MP950

Ultimate Print-Copy-Scan performance. If you're looking for the ultimate in Print-Copy-Scan performance, this is your machine. The PIXMA MP950 Photo All-In-One produces an amazing resolution of up to 9600 x 2400 color dpi, 1 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 results: smoother, virtually grain-free images. The advanced 7-color ink system includes six dye-based inks and a pigment-based black ink. The results are truer, more life-like photos and laser-quality text. And what about speed? A 4" x 6" photo lab quality borderless photo takes approximately 46 seconds. 2

Pros: Compact Design, durable, Easy Setup, easy to use, reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors
Cons: High Ink Consumption, slow startup
I used to have a separate scanner and printer. At one time, to get quality results, you had to have separate pieces. But the MP950 is the answer to small footprint and quality photography. Good and solid drivers.

Pros: Easy Setup, easy to use, fast print speed, reliable, 35mm scan
Cons: Heavy/Bulky, High Ink Consumption
While it is perhaps true that it does not conserve ink very well, the added feature of a film scanner is a nice add-on. While it is not the highest quality to scan film on a flat-bed scanner, it is a nice backup to have when in a pinch.
This coupled with bottom tray feeding cassette for paper, or top sheet feeding is another great option that makes it space saving when stacked on a shelf. Although, the printer is bulky by today's standards.
The scans are good quality and the color matching is pretty good for this price range. I disagree with other reviews found on this site and as a photographer myself I would say that this is a balanced buy for a modest budget.
The inklevels are usually accurate and the print speed, while not a race horse, is not noticeably slow.
Especially, as I have said prior, if you need to do a few quick scans of 35mm film.

Pros: Easy Setup, easy to use, fast print speed, Low Ink Consumption, reliable, Sharp Tones & Colors, single color refills
I have had mine for several years now and had found problem other than the little door over the SanCards that fell off.
I would by another printer like this in flash as its fast and prints great I have lots of 10X8 pictures all over the house printed on this printer and they have no fade inseveral year even when exposed to the sunlite.

Cons: High Ink Consumption, unreliable
This has been a very difficult printer to use. It uses a lot of ink even if you just print documents. The scan mode also does not work well. When I send emails of documents, the recipients often say that they cannot read the scan.
Great disappointment coming from a company like Cannon

Cons: High Ink Consumption, pm 8 difficult to find. why isn't it included?
Inks are not bundled together. Why is PM 8 a separate color and package? I'm in the middle of printing, picked up the 4 package of inks and the large black. But why t
l is Photo Magenta a separate color?
