I ended up with a short list of two Canons, one more than double the price of the other. I ended up plumping for this Canon printer. Not because of the price, but because of the size and weight of the Pro – 10S. The reviews also suggested that the picture quality of the iP8750 was as good as or better than its more expensive cousin.
It’s an A3+ printer so it takes up a fair bit of space. With the packets of paper I’ve acquired, spare ink cartridges, paper input support extended and the output tray pulled out, it takes up a whole desk. Luckily I have one in my spare room so that’s where it now lives.
Set up involved following the picture sequence on the quick set up guide. I found some set up videos on Canon’s web site’s product page for this printer, so I’d already watched them before the printer turned up. They helped and I recommend checking them out before unpacking anything. Canon provide set-up ink cartridges with the printer. These are low capacity so I’d encourage ordering a set of spares (not much change from £60) when you buy this printer. The inks need installing after bits of orange tape and a chunk of orange plastic have been removed. The ink cartridges, and their corresponding slots, are obviously identified with a colour abbreviation code. You will notice there are two blacks. The pigment black is used purely for documents, the other black is used solely for photographs. There is no user choice in this. Correct installation is rewarded by an orange light lighting up on the tip of the cartridge body.
After closing the lid the next step was to run the installation software. That was as straightforward as installing any else. Wi-fi set up was accomplished by pressing the wi-fi button on the printer – until the blue light was flashing, then running downstairs to the router to press the WPS button on the back of the router. That was all it took. You don’t need a WPS button on your router, but if you have, then wi-fi set-up is a piece of cake.
The installation software left two obtrusively big widgets on my desktop. One was a video window running a slide show, the other was Canon’s proprietary software ‘Canon Quick Menu’. This software does things like tell you what ink type is required; opens a web page called ‘Useful Functions on the Printer’; issues ‘useful notices’; and other stuff that I’m highly unlikely to need so I haven’t made any use of this at all. Included in this is something with the really stupid name of Creative Park Premium which opens ‘My Image Garden’ (your own images) and lets you format them in interesting ways – well, interesting to Canon it seems. This software, when it runs produces two error messages on my system (Tvichw32 Driver Open Error & Can not load ASPI Layer Driver). I contacted Canon, they passed the buck and told me it was Microsoft’s fault and that I should contact Microsoft. That irritated me no end especially since these error messages only appear when starting Canon’s supplied software. Canon get 1 * for customer service. ‘My image garden’ won’t run if the printer is switched off, it checks that you have legit Canon cartridges in the printer before it will run.
Fortunately this supplied software is completely unnecessary for printing images or documents if you have other image editing software that allows you to print. Both Lightroom and Photoshop facilitate this, so I’ve managed just fine without it. By the way, the error messages don’t prevent any of its functionality, they are just irritating.
Back to the printer. The paper-support tray feeds almost vertically into the back of the printer. It is made from three telescoping pieces of flimsy plastic. The paper out tray is also a flimsy telescoping four part tray that pulls out at the front (bit of orange tape hidden on the underside of this that you need to watch out for). They all fold away very neatly and have lids that make the printer look quite attractive when it’s not being used. These flimsy trays do not appear as if they will take any stress without breaking so make sure you can place your printer where they will not be accidentally knocked, brushed up against, or have anything dropped on them.
Straightforward printing is a doddle. Printing using ICC profiles from Photoshop is a little trickier, because you need to understand Canon’s secret codes in order to identify which profile applies to which Canon paper. You also need to switch off printer control using the driver software – otherwise it will just override your Photoshop choices. I’ve put these codes at the bottom of the review for those who may be interested in using Photoshop to control the printing. Canon’s supplied printer driver has a ton of options and it’s worth checking out Canon’s information pages on how to best make use of the different settings. To just leave it at the basic settings, and not explore some of these options would be to waste much of this printer’s potential.
Image quality is superb. I’ve only used Canon’s Plus Glossy II and Pro Platinum and I’m completely happy with the results.
The only problem I’ve noticed is that when I created my own black border in Photoshop, the resulting print showed it thinner on the rear edge of the image. This is something I need to play with a bit more. I don’t know whether it is down to the printer, or the settings I’m using. There are a lot of options to play with, and I’ve only had it a week, so plenty to explore yet.
In conclusion, I’m totally happy with this. Image quality is superb, and without any fiddling, is a very close match to what I see on my monitor. If it proves reliable, then I’ve made a good purchase and am happy to recommend it. Check out my setting up images too.
Codes for ICC profiles for Canon paper
PR = Photo Paper Pro and Photo Paper Pro II
SP: = Photo Paper Plus Glossy
MP: = Matte Photo Paper
SG: = Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss
GL: = Photo Paper Plus Glossy II
PT: = Photo Paper Pro Platinum
The numbers (following above code) relate to quality as set on the slide bar
3= Standard quality
2= High quality
1 = something better than High
So the ICC profile for Photo Paper Plus Glossy II High Quality = Canon IP8700 series GL2
So the ICC profile for Photo Paper Pro Platinum High Quality = Canon IP8700 series PT2
So the ICC profile for Photo Paper Pro Platinum High+ Quality = Canon IP8700 series PT1
I was also dismayed to find that the very basics were absent from the box. Seriously... NO POWER CORD?! Nor a USB cable for setup. I know it's not an expensive printer but for the pennies this would cost them, it's disappointing to cut corners like this. The setup instructions are awful. A bunch of meaningless pictures with literally no words. Fortunately, it's not that difficult to do.
I was generally pleased with the overall quality of the few test prints I've done so far, although true colour matching has proved to be difficult so far, and for a four year old printer, there seems to be precious few useful ICC profiles out there. Still, there are ways and means, and it's early days yet. I'm sure it'll be fine - as I say, the print quality itself is great.
I like that it does photo quality and manages borderless prints. Struggles with large files over WiFi, so needs to be connected via cable... this is a big downside to me.
