Canon Pixma iP6700D

£119 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Canon

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

The Pixma iP6600D proved a strong seller for Canon. Now comes its successor, the Pixma iP6700D.

The Pixma iP6600D proved a strong seller for Canon. Now comes its successor, the Pixma iP6700D.

This printer's stunning 3.5in colour pop-up display makes light work of menu navigation, image previews and basic photo touch-ups without the need for a PC. Its infrared interface can receive images from some phones, and you have the option of wireless Bluetooth printing. A port lets you use a USB cable to print from a PictBridge-compatible digital camera (but not from a portable USB drive).

The Pixma has one notable new feature, which its maker calls the Canon-to-Canon Direct Advantage. When you use the printer with select Canon digicams, you can touch up photos, print a contact sheet and more, all via the camera's controls. The printer's two media card slots read most common formats.

The iP6700D adds support for several new paper sizes and Canon's Fine Art Photo Rag paper. The printer uses an underside cassette drawer and an upright sheet feeder that each hold up to 150 sheets of plain paper. An automatic-duplexer setting allows for double-sided prints.

The iP6700D's printing speed was modest. Even its quoted figures (which are often wildly over-exaggerated by manufacturers) seem mundane when compared to competing models, and in real-world testing, the iP6700D’s figures were modest. The iP6700D produced a 5x7in photo in 45 seconds, sluggish next to the likes of the HP Photosmart.

Image quality is good, though – at least, if you're using it for pictures. The iP6700D is first and foremost a photo printer, and the quality of prints produced in our tests was very strong. Images looked vibrant, although skin tones appeared a little too bronzed.

The unit is less adept at printing text. Unlike some, it doesn't use pigment black ink; as a result, text output wasn't as dark. We also saw fuzzy edges on some letters.

The iP6700D is a good six-ink photo printer with a nice LCD and PC-less printing options. However, it's not the fastest, and iP6600D owners won't need to upgrade unless the improved paper support or Canon-to-Canon feature is on their wish list.

    Canon Pixma iP3600

    If Darth Vader was buying a photo printer, the £70 Canon Pixma iP3600 would be near the top of his shortlist. He'd certainly appreciate the acres of black shiny plastic: only the presence of some silver piping and rounded-off edges alleviate its monolithic air.
