Product Details


Imagine. Brilliant 4 x 6 borderless photos in about 60 seconds-and 8.5 x 11 photos in approximately two minutes. The Canon S820 Photo Printer delivers it all and so much more, quickly and easily. It's the performance and innovation you'd expect from a company with more than 60 years of leadership in imaging and photographic technology. The S820 Photo Printer produces photo prints of silver-halide quality, thanks to a high-performance 6-color ink system. It combines standard cyan, magenta and yellow ink tanks with one-sixth density photo cyan, photo magenta and black ink tanks in one printhead-making 2400 x 1200 dpi photo-quality printing available. Plus, Canon advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology combines cutting-edge achievements in ink-droplet size, accurate ink application, consistent droplet quality and ink composition. The result is spectacular print resolution, up to 49 gradation levels, dramatically reduced graininess and breathtaking detail and color reproduction.

I bought mine new off the web for...

Strengths: Nice color prints look as good as photo shops

Weakness: You must no you have to use canon paper for prints to look good

I bought mine new off the web for 100.00 best buy I have yet..Like I said if you use other paper that is not canon paper the prints look bad. I thought I had a bad printer till I put a sheet of canon paper in the printer.

Amazing! You cannot tell the...

Strengths: Professional quality photos, fast too! 6 tanks make waste almost zero.

Weakness: Canon riggs their photo ink to work only on Canon paper. A little slow on normal every-day printing.

Amazing! You cannot tell the differnce with it's pictures and a 35mm camera. It's also suprisingly fast on photo printing. I also have the Canon Power Shot S200; they make an amazing combo! If you want to use other brands of paper, choose Custom print quality and then click advanced, move the slider all the way to the highest quality. It goes slow, but you can use other brands of paper that way.

Strengths: Outstanding photo quality. Great full bleed photo prints. Inexpensive individual inks.

Weakness: None that I've found.

This is by far the best printer for the price. Consumer Reports rates it best for durability and color reproduction and after seeing the photos, I believe them. If you already have a digital camera, this is the printer to buy. If you don't have a camera, get the Canon PowerShot series since it uses print technology that exactly matches the color to the photo. Printing is fast considering how much...

Buy it. As a professional graphic...

Strengths: Print quality, cost of consumables, low noise, attractive.

Weakness: Poor print quality *only* in draft mode with plain paper. Somewhat slow.

Buy it. As a professional graphic designer who uses $10K+ proofers on a regular basis I don't expect much from a cheapie home printer, but this thing delivers. If you use the hi-res paper from canon ($10/100pages)you can get stunning quality affordably. Bleed printing is nice too. Black and white only looks good on plain paper if you set it to the highest quality mode which slows it down to a...

I got my S820 for Christmas for my...

Strengths: $99 after rebate! Six ink tank save a bundle on ink refills. Great letter size pictures from both a 2.1mp and 3.1mp camreas. Setup was a breeze, was printing off of internet in no time.

Weakness: Louder than I excepted.

I got my S820 for Christmas for my family. I did several months of research both here at PC WORLD and reading CONSUMERS REPORTS. Cost was a major factor because we also just got a new DELL computer, and a digital camera. I decided on the S820 after seeing pictures printed off of it and several HPs, and EPSONS. I couldn't tell the differance at 8 by 10 sizes! The S820 is an excellant black and...
