The Canon Pixma iP6700D is an affordable photo inkjet printer that's capable of printing superior-quality photos comparable to those developed in a photo lab.

In addition to producing photos with great shadow detail and accurate colors, the Canon Pixma iP6700D offers a multitude of customisation options such as noise reduction, face brightening and colour adjustment.

Equipped with two input trays, six ink cartridges and a user-friendly control panel, the Canon Pixma iP6700D can help create a smooth production process that won't leave veteran photographers missing the time they previously spent in a darkroom.

Design and usability

The Canon Pixma iP6700D's two input trays should keep your photo papers organised. An automatic sheet feeder holds larger media and a cassette drawer holds smaller papers. The cassette drawer, located under the printer's output tray, conceals smaller photo papers and protects them from dust. Before printing, you can easily choose the input tray from which to print by pressing the Feed Switch button on the control panel.

If you're an avid digital photographer, you'll appreciate the fact that the Canon Pixma iP6700D's picture-card reader accepts several formats: CompactFlash, MicroDrive, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, SD Card and MultiMediaCard v.3.31. These picture-card slots are found behind a removable cover on the front of the printer. However, while I was unpacking the Canon Pixma iP6700D, this cover snapped off; even whenwe managed to get the cover back on, it would fall off very easily.

Printing from a picture card is very easy with the Canon Pixma iP6700D's control panel. A bright, large (3.5in) colour LCD screen displays a variety of menus that are easy to navigate with the four directional arrows. After inserting your picture card and selecting a photo, you can push the Settings button to change paper size or choose from advanced settings. In the advanced settings, you can change brightness, contrast, colour hue, noise reduction and tweak other details. After you've tailored the photo to your liking, press the Print button, which will bring you to a print dialog screen.

    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.
