Considering getting this printer as I have a Jessops voucher and some dosh for my birthday. Has anyone got one and if so is it a good printer? I already have the A4 Pixma ip4700 which is excellent. Not bothered about how quick it is only the quality of the print.

Thanks everyone

Hello Jane

I have had this printer for about 6 months and I am very impressed with it.
Its very sharp and the colours seem very pure and true to me..I know some will say you need 7 or 9 ink tanks in an A3+ printer but perhaps they are pro's or have money to burn.
Its a bargain for the money and I would say go for it!!
I buy my inks through Amazon or Ebay and if you check every few days or so theres always a cheaper price than jessops etc...the same goes for the Canon Photo Paper...especially the A3!!

All the Best

THREAD RESURRECTION - I need a new printer, an this A3 looks interesting - Has anyone else got experience of this or other cheap recommendations. I'm looking for a good home printer that's OK for photo's and not too expensive.
Many thanks

Hi Stuart

I didn't get one in the end but will when I have the money. I think Canon's printers are exceptionally good so if you do get one let me know how you are getting on with it.

I bought one of these from amazon in February for 150 and I have been amazed with the quality of the prints I print A3 and it gives faultless results with Ilford papers, plus its really economical with the inks too. Another bonus which I liked was that the inks it came with in the box were proper full inks rather than the rubbish setup cartridges you get with most printers these days.

In all I was extremely please with the printer and it only costs 45 for a full set of genuine inks which gave me about 50 full A3 prints!

Hope you enjoy you're printer you wont be disappointed.
