The Canon PIXMA ip1500 is designed with over 1,000 nozzles that produce tiny 2-picoliter droplets, resulting in finely detailed images that are worthy of saving in your family album. Pigment-based inks insure colors will stay true, and the prints are resistant to water, fading, and smudges.

With resolutions up to 600 x 600 dpi black and 4,800 x 1,200 dpi color, your office documents or school reports will look as beautiful as your photos. Top speeds of 18 ppm black and 13 ppm color (draft mode) will have your pages in hand in just a few seconds; a borderless 4-by-6-inch photo can take as little as 58 seconds--quick enough to hand out party photos as your guests walk out the door. (All reported speeds are maximums. Actual speeds will vary.)

Easy-PhotoPrint v3.0
While most photo-editing software applications will brighten the entire image, Easy-PhotoPrint 3.0 accurately detects the subject's face and adjusts the skin to the optimum tone. Brighten dark faces caused by bright backgrounds. Choose from one-click automatic to correct the entire image all at once, or manual to correct just a selected area.

Before
After

Easy-PhotoPrint 3.0 also lets you select and print any image on your PC, perfectly trim images, correct images using lab-quality retouching features, correct red-eye, smooth facial lines and skin tone, sharpen faces, remove blemishes, and print in a variety of sizes and layouts.

Exif Print Technology
Exif 2.2 is the worldwide printer independent standard for digital image processing. Under Exif 2.2, the digital still camera can record data tags for specific camera settings and functions such as whether the flash was on or off, if the camera was in landscape, portrait or night scene mode, etc. Referencing some or all of this information, an Exif Print compatible application can process digital camera images intelligently based on specific camera settings and the shooting environment.

The ip1500 is compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems, and requires only a USB cable to get it up and running (cable not included). With a depth of just over 8 inches, you can tuck this little powerhouse just about anywhere--even in your dorm room. Canon provides a one-year warranty covering parts and service.

Canon Pixma iP1500 is a great printer with very good design and features.
First of all, the good thing about it is the price. For under $50 you get a nice printer that can give you photo quality and the ink is include. Just go grab yourself a cheap USB 2.0 printer cable from place like Walmart and you have gotten yourself a great economical home printing solution.

One of the best thing about this printer is the actual design on the hardware. The paper loading tray of this printer can be folded down to double the use as a dust cover to cover up the place where the paper is inserted. It is a great feature to prolong the lifespan of the printer. For people like me that doesn't print a lot (a few times a month) it helps very much to have the dust guard. In many of my previous printers that doesn't come with a build in dust cover (not the plastic bag type), there were always dust building up at the paper inserting part and clogged up the paper roller and even the ink-head, which made all the print outs have lines across them. Thumb-ups to the designer in Canon who designed this features.

The way it's paper tray folded up also made this printer very space saving. In many of my older printers, I always have to lea ve room for the non-removable or unfoldable paper tray that stick out behind the printer. You don't need to worry about that with this printer. You can just put it at the corner of your desk right up against the wall.

As far as print quality, it is superior for its class and price range. If you have a good sources photo, it is going to print out exactly like what it should look like on the computer screen.
I would also recommend you use a high resolution source photo file to print if you want good print out quality.

I bought this printer because it was fast and inexpensive, and have been pleasantly surprised at its superior quality. It's extremely user-friendly with easy load and learn software, prints wondrously fast, and the quality is outstanding. The cartridges are inexpensive and readily available. The photo print quality is superior to many more expensive models. Highly recommend!

As a professional graphic artist with over 20 years in the industry, I have seen lots of products/suppliers come and go.

Like Quark before it Epson decided to abandon its core user base of professional graphic arts customers for the promise of a windfall of profit by catering only to Win-Tel users. They now are a commodity player with an expensive, balky, cumbersome line of equipment.

In steps Canon, god love 'em. Great Cameras, great printers, Mac support for days...

Now this printer is my home unit and I could not be more pleased with its performance.

Two main features attracted me:

1. The ink it uses is BC-24, available, been around for YEARS, and cheap! (about $17 for color and $8 for the color cart).

2. border-less printing on generic 4x6 glossy snaps from Office Depot (100 pieces for $12) that look great.

This printer is fast, quiet, and works flawlessly with iPhoto as well as any of the typical Pro apps a Graphic Designer might use.

A local computer store was doing demos, took pic of my baby w canon A95 @ 3mp used the IP1500 and canon 4 x 6 glossy WOW! I checked out the price on Amazon Under $50, 50pcs of glossy 4x6 was under $8. The BCI-24 black is ~$8 and BCI-24 color ~$17.

I have even tried some of the 3rd party knock-off inks (real cheap)and they look just as good. I can not find a flaw with this machine. I figured a ~$50 printer would have $30-$40 ink cartridges (Dell) but I have seen the BCI-24's everywhere and Canon paper is great quality and very reasonably priced. I am seriouly questioning ever visiting a photo lab again. If it were not for the demo I would have wrote this off as a cheap printer that produced poor quality prints. I think most all the reviews come to the same conclusion. I have extremely happy with the 4x6", 5x7" and 8x11.5" prints. I would not spend the time to write a review unless I really like or dislike a product, and my choice is obvious.

Verified Purchase
The Canon PIXMA ip1500 is a good starting photo printer for its price range. It has a very stylish design, and it does not clutter your desktop.

The quality of the prints it produces are exceptional for the price. And the ink cartriges are insanely inexpensive, compared to my mother's Epson and Lexmark printers.

There is a minor delay from when you tell the printer to print, and when it actually does print (during which it is a bit noisy). Still, this is not a major problem.

My only criticism is that I wish it had a paper tray for the printed paper. It does not have any, and this means there is nowhere for the paper that has been printed on to go, except your desktop. But still, this is a wonderful printer for a very inexpensive price, and the low cost of the ink makes it even more worth it.

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars was because of the noise. Granted, it's not loud enough to wake anybody up, but the start up and finish prep time of printing a document is a clunky noise. But besides that, the noise is worth it for such a great printer. For under $50 including the ink, it is a very good new product. I have just received it and printed not only some documents but pictures, and boy is it fast, neat, and all around a great print job. Highly recommended!
