Canon PIXMA iP5000 Reviews
PCMAG compares the Canon PIXMA iP5000 to Canon PIXMA iP4000 and writes;
“On our tests, these differences yielded better-quality text and graphics for the iP5000, but slightly lower-quality photos. We rated the iP5000′s text output at the high end of very good…”
Photo-i reviews the Canon PIXMA iP5000 and writes;
“Printing times are more than respectable, 35 seconds for a 6×4 inch print, 1min 34 sec for a full A4 photograph and 3 minutes 34 seconds at maximum resolution. A plain paper mixed text and graphics document took 16 seconds for the first document and 10 seconds for subsequent documents.”
Trustedreviews reviews the Canon PIXMA iP5000 and writes;
“The Canon Pixma iP5000 is a very well-equipped printer, which should be equally at home in a small office as it would be at home. Print quality, speed and running costs are all more than acceptable and at a street price of under £150, it’s superb value for money as well.”
CNET reviews the Canon PIXMA iP5000 and writes;
“The gamut produced by the Pixma iP5000′s four-color ink set can’t match those of real photo printers. However, its minuscule droplets produced excellent text–some of the best we’ve seen–and allowed the printer to render photos with far more detail and accuracy in the midtones than comparable four-color models do. Skin tones looked very good…”
Canon PIXMA iP5000 User Reviews
Great pictures at a reasonable price
“We bought this printer almost a year ago and we couldn’t be happier. My wife has finally stopped taking pictures with the film camera because the quality of the prints we get from this printer is so good. With the included software, it is easy to print pictures of any size. We paid $150 for ours and it was worth it. “ – by R. Gress
Canon Pixma 5000 = Good Photo Printer
“I pop in the Canon Photo Pro 4×6 paper that came with my printer, and proceed to print a borderless 4×6 picture. It probably takes close to a minute to print, but when it does print, I am pleased. I had to get nit-picky to find anything wrong. There are no pixels (the little squares) seen anywhere in the picture. The brightness/contrast of the picture is very good. The skin tones are good.” – by Joseph B. West
Great Quality Photos at a Low Price
“Canon Pixma IP5000 is one of the better photo printers available for the price. This compact, box- shaped device prints exceptional pictures and is very efficient with its usage of ink, making it one of the best printers in terms of per photo print cost. The most important component of any photo printer is its ability to print great quality pictures. And this printer excels in this area, with a resolution that reaches a level of 9600 by 2400 dots per inch for color printing. And it has the ability to deliver ink droplets as small as 1 picoliter, which is one- trillionth of a liter. This is why the printer is capable of such great quality pictures.” – by Bryan Carey
Good quality, no-fuss, reliable printer
“My husband, who is the computer-literate one in the family and into photography, did the in-depth research to find us the best printer for our tight budget. That brought us to the Canon PIXMA iP5000. Not being technically-minded, I found this printer and its software VERY user-friendly. I’m very impressed (as is my husband) with its quality of printing, and the speed at which it prints. Well worth our money and well worth our time to print it at home rather than run out to Costco to print our photos. “ – by archaeoamy
Most easy to refill printer
“This printer uses BCI type ink tank. It is different than those ink catridges that has chip to prevent you refilling them. With ink tank, the refill is easy and clean. We could refill each tank more than 10 times easily. “ – by Edison
Great results with Canon
“After having my previous Canon S300 for four years of trouble free operation it died. In need of another excellent photo and text inkjet printer, I looked to Canon. The reviews for the Pixma iP5000 were excellent and it didn’t fail when I first used it. It does print a borderless photo in about 47 seconds and a full 8×12 in less than 2 mins. The text quality is outstanding as well as the quickness with which it prints. The duplexing feature is great especially when trying to conserve paper with larger print jobs. Highly recommended!! “ – by Emily Drake
aGreat Affordable Printer
“This printer not only does beautiful photo prints but is so easy, quick, and accurate at all printing jobs. The Easy Web Print feature is absolutely fantastic! Deffinitely worth the money! “ – by W. Miller
“This is the 4th iP 5000 printer I have purchased for the business where I work. And after 2 years of steady high use(25-30 8x 10″ high quality photos per day) photo printing these little printers are hard at work with no problems. They just keep on printing. Easy to install. Easy to change ink cartridges. I like it that each color is individual so you don’t have to buy a whole all color cartridge if you run out of one color. After the first two we decided to buy two more for other areas of the office. Great value!” – by D. Graham
Excellent picture and document quality
“Not sure why others have had issues with this printer but I have been 100% satisfied. I have printed more than 300 professional quality 4×6 photos from my IP5000 and am printing more as I write this review… The printer is very efficient with ink as well. I have printed at least 20+ letter sized (8.5×11) photos from it on the past two cartrides as well. One nice feature is that the document, black and white, print jobs are handled by a separate cartridge so you will always have the ability to print documents in case you forget to order your photo printing cartridges. “ – by T.BONE
Canon PIXMA iP5000 Brochure & User Guide
Canon PIXMA iP5000 Features
Printing professional quality photos from home has become a reality, thanks to easy-to-use photo printers like the Canon PIXMA ip5000. By combining five-color printing and a 1,856-nozzle print head that’s capable of delivering superfine 1-picoliter ink droplets (up to 22 million droplets per inch), the ip5000 delivers stunningly accurate prints that should leave professional photo labs a little worried.
Color resolution is as high as 9,600 x 2,400 dpi, with black-and-white resolution of up to 600 x 600 dpi. Print speeds are as high as 25 ppm in black, 17 ppm in color, while a borderless 4-by-6-inch photo can take as little as 36 seconds. The same drive system responsible for the ip5000′s improved print speeds also results in a low 34 dB(A) noise level. (All reported speeds are maximums. Actual speeds will vary.)
Precision Color Distribution Technology
Unlike other systems, nozzle configuration in Bubble Jet printers is simple, so it is easier to make them smaller and more dense. Using its superior semiconductor manufacturing technology, Canon has succeeded in developing an ultrahigh-precision, multinozzle print head. The problem of color inconsistency has been solved by positioning a mirror-image line of 128 nozzles (600 dpi pitch for each color) at a half-pitch offset from the existing line. This configuration also provides the added advantage of enabling high-resolution printing at 1,200 dpi.
While most photo-editing software applications will brighten the entire image, Easy-PhotoPrint 3.0 accurately detects the subject’s face and adjusts the skin to the optimum tone. Brighten dark faces caused by bright backgrounds. Choose from one-click automatic to correct the entire image all at once, or manual to correct just a selected area.
Easy-PhotoPrint 3.0 also lets you select and print any image on your PC, perfectly trim images, correct images using lab-quality retouching features, correct red-eye, smooth facial lines and skin tone, sharpen faces, remove blemishes, and print in a variety of sizes and layouts.
Along with a wide variety of plain and photo papers, the ip5000 also accepts envelopes and transparencies. The dual paper path allows you to print two-sided documents or simply store photo papers in one tray and plain paper in the other.
With its easy-to-use USB port, hooking up the printer to your computer is a snap, while a direct print port allows you to print directly from a PictBridge-compatible digital camera or DV camcorder, with or without your computer. The software bundle includes Easy-PhotoPrint and PhotoStitch. Compatible with both PC and Mac operating systems, the ip5000 comes backed with a one-year limited warranty on both parts and labor.
