Canon i475D Printer Review
The Canon i475D is a basic color photo printer. It prints at speeds of up to 18 pages per minute in black Canon i475D ink and 12 pages per minute in color. When it was first manufactured in 2003, it was sold for less than $200. It has since been discontinued by Canon as new technology and higher quality printer ink came around. The i475D is still a good option for home users, small businesses with low volume printing needs and amateur digital photographers looking for a bargain and convenience.
The Canon i475D has many features that at one time set it apart from the competition, though now are pretty standard in Canon inkjet printers. The software provided has Easy-Photo Print and Easy-Web Print which automatically improve the intensity of the colors by using "vivid photo" option and reducing photo noise". The i475D also offers Canon Photo Viewer, which uses a PC for fast viewing and printing when connected directly to a digital camera or memory card. It has a USB 2.0 and Direct Port Print interface.
In more current inkjet units, all printer ink tanks are individual, which makes for more accurate colors and is less wasteful. This device, however, only has 2 Canon i475D ink cartridges, one black and one tri-color. They are easy to replace and inexpensive to replace. However, if consumers are using the i475D for bulk printing or high volume photo printing, the Canon i475D ink cartridges will need to be replaced much more frequently. Using the MicroFine Droplet Technology, 1,088 nozzles dispense hundreds of tiny drops of Canon i475D ink per inch. This technology produces smooth and realistic professional quality color images.
Consumers seem to be thrilled with the Canon i475D, and experts are impressed. At the time of production, this printer was among the elite and innovative. Canon has such made newer models with more color options and LCDs for direct viewing of photos on the printer with no need for a PC, such as the i900D.
