The Canon i550 is an inkjet color photo printer that is compact and ideal for personal use or even amateur photography. The software included with it makes a PC seem like a photo lab and simplifies the printing process for consumers. The i550 is one of the fastest printers in comparison to others in the same price range, printing at 18 pages per minute using black printer ink and 11 pages per minute in color. It can also produce a vivacious 4x6 borderless color image in less than 48 seconds and an 8x10 in approximately 90 seconds.
Software provided by Canon includes Exif 2.2, which saves digital settings and shooting conditions in the MPEG file. Easy-PhotoPrint, another software feature provided, reads the saved file and automatically adjusts and enhances it to provide optimal results. The Canon i550 is compatible with both Windows and Mac, and it priced around $150. It is easily portable weighing only 7 pounds and measuring 16.5x6.3x10.8 inches.
The printer ink system is known as Precision Color Distribution Technology, which consists of 1,088 nozzles and four individual tanks of Canon i550 ink. This smart technology, which disperses tiny droplets per inch to create less grainy and more accurate color intensity, also saves users money. The black Canon i550 ink cartridges have a suggested page yield of over 700 pages, and the color is nearly 500 pages. These cartridges will last quite a while for standard volume usage.
