Thanks to miniscule 1pl ink droplets from Canon’s FINE print engine which delivers a maximum print resolution of 9600 x 2400dpi, the PIXMA iP4850 produces smooth, grain free images and the crispest text in next to no time. Document print speeds are a useful 11.0 IPM* in black and white or 9.3 IPM* in colour. A high quality borderless 10x15cm photo-lab quality print is delivered in just 20 seconds so you can instantly and conveniently share those special moments with family and friends. Two-way paper feeding means different types of paper can be loaded at the same time for convenient printing of documents or photos – the printer will know which to choose. You can even print directly onto a CD to help archive data or personalise your music collection.
Efficient 5 Single Ink System and duplex printing reduce waste
Thanks to five separate ink tanks, you only ever need to replace a colour when it runs out, reducing waste and optimising ink usage. Coupled with Duplex Printing which allows printing on both sides of paper, you can save money, reduce your paper consumption and help the environment in the process – all without compromising on print quality.

A world of advantages with Canon technology
Automatic correction to make every print perfect
Based on Canon’s market-leading intelligent camera technology, Auto Photo Fix II will automatically analyse and correct your photos at the printer, removing any red-eye and making adjustments to compensate for the photographer, camera or lighting limitations. It will automatically recognise the lighting conditions when the photo was taken and will, for example, brighten faces that are backlit and under-exposed to ensure more accurate skin tones or remove any colour cast to give clear, true colour photos. The result? Perfect prints every time without the need for a computer.
Automatic enhancement for clear and crisp scanned documents
Intelligent auto-correction doesn’t stop with your photos. Through Auto Document Fix technology, your printer enhances text, graphics and images in scanned documents making them clearer, more vivid and more impactful.
Printing made easy with FREE in-box software
Exclusive to Canon, Easy-PhotoPrint EX is the fast and easy way to re-touch your digital photos and print them in a choice of size and layouts either directly within the software or from Adobe® Photoshop® with the supplied Easy-PhotoPrint EX plug-in. The Correct and Enhance button adds advanced photo correction and enhancement using the same simple interface. The lab-quality re-touching features available include: red eye correction, smooth facial lines and skin tone, face brightener, face sharpener and blemish remover.
The intuitive on-screen display helps you choose to print your selection in whichever format you require from normal photos to calendars. The software also features a direct link to Flickr where you can search and download publicly available images to supplement your own. Through Easy-PhotoPrint you can access the Full HD Movie print function, enabling you to capture your favourite home movie moments on photo-lab quality stills.
Save paper with Easy-WebPrint software
FREE Easy-WebPrint EX software offers a range of options to help you organise the information you want to print from the internet and avoid wasting paper. These include:
- Auto Clipping: print only the area of a web page you want, not all the advertisements you don’t
- Clip from Multiple pages: collect, combine and edit content from multiple web pages before printing
You can collate this information to create easy to print multiple page booklets, or reduce the size of the whole web page to fit it onto a single piece of paper.
Advanced operations at the click of a button with Solutions Menu EX
Solutions Menu EX provides easy access to the advanced features of your printer. The functions in each category are presented in easy to recognize pictorial icons and you can tailor your Desktop in order to quickly access the functions you want, when you want.
Beautiful, long-lasting photos
You can keep your precious photos bright and vibrant with the Canon ChromaLife100+ system. This unique combination of enhanced FINE print head technology and genuine Canon Chromalife 100+ inks with selected Canon photo papers lets you create beautiful photos that will last up to 300 years when stored in an archival-quality photo album.
To achieve exceptional print resolution, Canon Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering (FINE) uses a patented print head with high precision nozzles, ejecting ink droplets as small as 1 picolitre in size (the smaller the ink drop the better quality the image).
Compact and tidy
Both the Power cable and USB port are recessed inside the compact, stylish printer body so you can push the machine right back against the wall – saving space and keeping everything neat and tidy.
*Printing speeds explained:
Canon measures its printing speeds in IPM (Images Per Minute). IPM is a new ISO speed testing standard, approved by the International Standards Organisation in March 2009.
PPM (Page Per Minute), used by some manufacturers, is not a standard for inkjet printers. Every printer manufacturer has their own ‘test pages’ that are used to test speed and give vastly different results. The new ISO standard sets standardised ‘test pages’ that are to be used by any manufacturer measuring their speed in IPM, allowing comparable results across inkjet brands.
**Only compatible with Canon Digital Still Compact and Digital SLR cameras.

Canon have changed the cartridge, even less ink for your money than previous and no re-fillers have cracked the chip inside yet, so expect to pay through the nose for your consumables.
I owned an ip3600 before this one and it broke down right before an important deadline. Since I had no time to waste, I rushed to a shop and purchased an ip4850 (the ip3600 was not in stock). The original inks for this one are incredibly expensive, and even the compatible inks are about two times the price of the compatible inks for the ip3600. Furthermore, the colours are too saturated and this is not as good as it sounds. I'm sure it will look good for office graphics for instance, but if you are printing photographs and already have the right degree of saturation, it makes them look too 'heavy'.
I recently bought another ip3600. The reduced printing costs more than justify this decision.
My advice is that sometimes the high-end model is not the best option. I love Pixma printers, but not this one. And this tactic of Canon (constantly reducing the capacity of ink cartridges and increasing their prices with each model)is annoying.
Apart from this annoyance the printer does perform well enough though I am not convinced that quality is much better than my now old HP deskjet 970cxi. My replacement IP4850 came with a complete set of cartridges so I am unable to understand why one reviewer had a printer with a black missing (the large black cartridge is however packed separately from the smaller). The absence of a USB lead was well documented and therefore not a problem especially as I seem to be building up large stocks of various leads from earlier equipment purchases over the years.
