If anyone looking for a decent printer, this is it and B&H is offering a great deal with a 250 dollar rebate. Not sure how they are doing it but best offer I have seen on a printer. After rebate its 129 dollars. On staples the same printer is listed at 499.00

Just got mine last week. Thing's a beast. Over 40lbs!
Prints really nice images. I like it so far. Now I just need to calibrate my monitor!

I bought one on April 28 for $49.99, after $250.00 mail in rebate, from Beach Camera through CPW. Best price I have ever seen for this printer. Plus it included 50 sheets of Luster 13" x 19" paper

My 14 year old Granddaughter is ecstatic!

I've gotten 7 of these printers free now. I'll buy the camera deals usually w/ a rebel camera and then sell the camera off for same price I pay for the entire kit after rebate = $0. In fact I've sold off all the ink at usually around $70/ea and some of the spare parts too. The money I've made has paid for my precision ink sets so all of my investment for printing is $0 and all my paper I own has been on the buy 1 get 9 free sale. I've got 1,000's of sheets of all kinds of paper. I think my 4x6 count is over 6,000 right now. And I can't seem to quit buying lol. Actually I've not bought any paper the last 3 sales simply due to me having enough.

Needless to say I print whatever I want and not worry about it. I have 3 spare print heads too.

I think I've gotten 3 and mainly for the ink cartridges for refilling and spare print heads - haha!

Like you, I have tons of paper (all sizes) and print to my hearts content.

Lucky guys. Canon Canada will not do those kinds of deals. They do cut the pro 100 in half couple times a year but no paper in deal.

I just got my first one this week! Such a fantastic bargain. My 8 year old Epson R1900 kept suffering from clogged print heads. It would take two or three cleanings to clear it up, only to have it be clogged again after a few weeks. Thought I better start looking for a replacement printer and found this deal at Adorama last week, complete with the free luster paper. Just got it set up today and am pretty impressed thus far.

Mostly I print 12 x 12 digital scrapbooking and get my paper from Red River. However, with all of this free 13 x 19 paper (also included in replacement cartridges from Canon) I will be trimming paper for a long while.

This is my first time with a Canon printer and I am pretty impressed; especially with the price! I might look at getting extras in the future, if I see the price this low again.

Don't see many (any?) of these kind of deals in Europe either...

I have read that the inks should last 100+ years. Not sure though.

You may be referring to the Pixma Pro 10. I'm trying to find out out the prints should last before fading with the Pixma Pro 100.

How long your print will last without fading depends partly on how you choose to display it. In direct sunlight and exposed to the atmosphere vs tucked away in an album makes a big difference, for example.

Here's some info on the Chromalife 100+ ink system that the Pro-100 uses... it breaks it down by how your prints are displayed.

https://www.usa.canon.​com …omalife100Plus/​index.html (external link)

Seems like I remember them touting it as being close to pigment inks in terms of longevity when it came out. FWIW, I have a Pro9000MkII (older Chromalife 100 dye based ink) and a Pro-10 (pigment) and they're great for different things. The dye printer tends to have more vibrant colors that pop but B&W's are better on the pigment printer (the Pro-100 has improved on this somewhat from what I've heard). Both have produced great images that still look good after several years.

Actually I was referring to the Pixma Pro-100, as I had just read it this week (lots of research on the new printer). However, I should have clarified that it is "album life". I believe Canon states it can last much longer than that. What I read was I would die before my prints fade. Hahaha.

This deal is not really as great as it seems. You need to spend $380 cash for the printer, $45 cash for the paper, and then you get a $250 gift card, which is of no value unless you spend it. In realty, you are getting a $250 discount on $675 in expenditures. It IS is good deal if you really desire that printer.
