Performance

I bought the Canon MP 470 to replace a new Kodak Easyshare that I couldn't stand using. While fumbling with the sluggish and awkward software, it corrupted my CDROM driver. The Canon was easy to unpack and install, if you have a USB cable laying around. The installation materials lacked detail to allow speedy ink reservoir installation. The paper setup and loading using the LCD panel was similarly poke and hope. You must set the paper type (matte, glossy, Pro, etc) before you can print. Since I bought the Canon primarily for 4x6 prints, I have not attempted to have two media sizes installed at the same time. The print's color accuracy and saturation is decent, but not great (compared to my PC's LCD screen display). It is fairly quiet. The type of photo paper being used may require an adjustment to printer chroma values, which I found odd. I also could not find (on-line lookup) the exact settings for the "everyday" Kodak paper I picked up at Staples, so I picked something close and that was apparently OK. Canon's "Print Wizard" is a good idea, but they could explain it's functions and options better. The photo fix-up functions are not particularly flexible or effective. I suggest using another photo program to edit, crop, and size the files and then print straight through. On the few dozen 5 MP JPEG files that I have printed so far, I feel it is adequate for my needs. For the price, it produces decent prints. It does not produce prints as visually pleasing as Moto-Photo's are from my Panasonic camera, if that is a fair comparison. But, it's what I was previously doing to get 4x6s printed. I am satisfied with the printer overall for my home 4x6s.

Setup took no time : had printer working in windows and OS x on my MacBook pro. Canon has the best color printing.
