View Full Version : Canon CP-100 printers

A few questions about the CP-100 printer ...
1. How much do the prints cost to produce? Presumably they will be quite expensive ...
2. How good are the results?
3. Would you recommend it over a normal inkjet printer?

The consumables are quite expensive, but the exact cost per print is going to depend on where in the world you are, and how much you pay for them... Here in Australia you can pay a wide range between 7.5% over cost to nearly 100% markup or more, depending on who you buy from...
The results are pretty much spot on, good continuous colour, everything you'd expect - take some sample shots to a good Canon dealer and they should be happy to print them for you...
It depends on what you're referring to as a 'normal' inkjet printer - printers vary from less than $100 to well over $1000 - would I recommend one over the equivalent priced inkjet, probably not - simply because the largest print you can do with a CP100 is postcard size, whereas even the cheapest inkjet can print an 8 X 10... if you want the best quality, then maybe, but you'd be hard put to fault an S820 or S900, let alone the lower end Canon machines like the S520...
The bargain at the moment would have to be the Polaroid P-500 - you can pick them up for as little as $75 on Amazon, and they give a (small) polaroid print from your memory card...
