In other words, the entire process is centrally controlled and it makes the quality control simple and well-organized; and helps to maintain the quality of all genuine Canon inks at a high level. All genuine Canon ink cartridges are designed for your easy printing of your beautiful prints.
Long-Lasting Beautiful Photos
In order to provide longer-lasting and more beautiful vivid photo prints, Canon continues to develop genuine dye inks and genuine Canon photo papers specifically for PIXMA printers and take advantage of the superb printing ability of the "FINE" print head.
ChromaLife100+ is a system to help preserve both long lasting beauty and durability of photos with the combination of genuine Canon dye inks and photo papers.
Print Crisp Text
When printing text or a document, pigment black ink takes a prominent role to help deliver crisp and sharp text and characters on plain paper. New genuine Canon pigment black ink brings dense and crisp-and-sharp black text print to the output because the surface of the pigment in the ink has been chemically treated on the nanoscale using Canon original treatment methods and treating agent. These nanoscale technologies suppress unwanted light reflection to the print surface by settling pigment particles on the paper surface to effectively control the reflection, and results in delivering denser black print.
Automatic Ink Monitoring
Genuine Canon ink tank equips LED to tell the user that ink level is now low and soon to be depleted, so that the user can prepare the replacement in advance. If the user does not replace the empty ink tank and keeps on printing, the print quality may deteriorate and fail to meet the standard for set printing conditions. LED flashes to inform users of which ink tank needs to be replaced. This helps to prevent users from incorrectly replacing ink tanks which contains enough ink to print.

However, it is beyond dumb to see the combos that Canon is offering for the new line of ink jet cartridges. If you want to save a few dollars by buying a combo pack, you either get this one which does not include the Black or Gray cartridges, or you get Canon CLI-226 BK,C,M,Y with PP-201 50 Sheets Combo Pack (4546B007) that doesn't include the Pigment Black or Gray cartridges, but includes 50 sheets of Canon paper that I do not need (I already have plenty on hand). It make no sense to not offer at least a 5-cartridge refill kit, since all of these Canon inkjet printers require 4 colors plus Pigment Black (not all utilize Gray). The only rationale would seem to be that Canon gets to line its pockets a bit more than it should.
I also have to knock off a star because the new cartridges are opaque, which may have been done to thwart refillers but also prevents users from checking the ink level themselves.
No wonder so many users go to such lengths to use non-OEM or refill solutions.
The Canon ink is bright and works very well with my photos. It IS EXPENSIVE but so are most printer inks these days. Amazon prices are about the best I have found for genuine Canon ink.
The other week I heard on NPR that the average cost of printer ink was about $5,000 per gallon. I laughed when I heard this. So I decided to calculate how much Canon ink was going for a gallon.
When my ink arrived in the mail, I happened to be out of yellow, or CLI-226Y. I weighed my my empty cartridge at 0.40oz. I weighed the new one with the cap off at 0.70oz, which gives 0.30oz of ink. So at 0.30oz of ink per cartridge, and 128oz in a gallon, that totals 427 yellow ink cartridges. 427 individual yellow ink cartridge costing $13.89 each, totals $5,931.00 per gallon.
If you want the best prints, use OEM ink. I am really happy with my Canon printer, and the price of the cartridges is fair.
First the ink cartridges:
I get maybe twenty pages printed (like emails or word docs, nothing to graphic intensive) and I get a low ink notice. If I print a picture at regular setting a tank gets zapped even faster. When the low ink notice shows up it means I've got about five more "regular" pages before the tank is dry. It also means having to order another batch of these as buying them separately is cost-prohibitive. The odd thing is that the original inks that came with the printer seemed to last forever, so I'm at a loss at to why this an issue. The ink colors run out at different times and so I just buy these packages two at a time and use as necessary.
Which brings up the second problem:
For some reason which may have to do with the different models these cartridges fit, you'll run out of the C,M,Y, Black colors faster than the big black one (PGBK-225). If that's the case, get the CLI-226 4-Color Pack or the CLI-226 CMY 3-Color Pack as they are cheaper.
If you do need all FIVE replaced, be sure to buy the CLI-226BK as it's not included in this package (PGI-225/CLI-226 4 Color Pack). If you decide to get the CLI-226 4-Color Pack, you'll need to buy the PGI-225 BK Ink Tank separately as it's not included in that package.Read more ›

Note, this package does not include the single small cassette of black 26. For reasons I fail to understand you'll have to buy that separately.Published 11 days ago by runcix
