In a hotel room or a home office, the iP90 printer goes practically anywhere, yielding superb output on all your projects. Reports and memos will look clean and professional with bold, crisp text. Using the included Canon Easy-WebPrint Windows software, Web pages are automatically formatted, so they'll print properly with full color and without trimming off the right-hand margin. You can also produce 4-by-6, 5-by-7 and 8.5-by-11-inch borderless prints, with stunning edge-to-edge quality and razor-sharp detail. In only about 51 seconds you can print a 4-by-6-inch photo with the look and feel of a traditional photograph. And for convenience, you can connect any PictBridge compatible digital camera or DV camcorder directly to the iP90 printer and print photos--no PC required!

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.


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.

Photo Optimizer PRO
Photo Optimizer PRO does not simply adjust image data; it also makes adjustments in the printer driver. It assesses color balance, vividness, and brightness based on a histogram analysis of image data (raw image), and then makes ideal adjustments within the three-dimensional color space of the entire image, also making optimum use of the image's characteristics. Photo Optimizer PRO utilizes the functions of Bubble Jet printers to reproduce clear colors. Making multi-adjustments to a variety of images requires finetuning, because processes that are suitable for certain adjustments may be detrimental to other adjustments.

Also, each image requires a different balance of adjustments. For these reasons, Canon has spent many years accumulating enormous volumes of data on what it found are the colors considered by most people to be the most beautiful. Based on these data, Canon has undertaken analyses of a huge number of images and devised an algorithm that allows well-balanced adjustments to be made for every single image pattern, even those with complex compositions and hues.

Canon Smart Ink Features
If you're on-the-go and low on ink the iP90 printer's "Ink Usage Control" setting enables you to produce approximately 1.5 times more pages without lowering print quality. Plus, if you run out of black ink, just choose the "Use Composite Black" option and the iP90 printer continues to print black using a composite of color inks in the "Ink Usage Control" setting. These features are a convenient safety net when you don't have extra ink on hand.

Versatile, Wireless Printing
The iP90 printer offers both IrDA compatibility and an optional Bluetooth interface enabling you to print wirelessly from a PC, PDA or mobile phone. For maximum portability, an optional Canon car adapter and rechargeable battery kit provide power on the go.

What's in the Box
Canon iP90 photo printer, iP90 printhead, BCI-15 black ink tank, BCI-16 color ink tank, power cord, universal AC adapter, setup software and user's guide CD-ROM, documentation kit; USB cable not included

I read the previous reviews and I did some research on the net about this printer. I was skeptical when I received it in the mail from Amazon about how it would be. Let me start off by saying that I am happy with it! But it is not perfect! It fits easily in my Targus backpack laptop bag with all the other gadgets I carry around with me. I saw one review that stated that the text printing was fuzzy but it seems very crisp to me and very fast for such a small printer. The photos are good quality but of course could be better from a 6 or 7-color printer, but since I have this in my bag along with a box of 4x6 photo paper I can print off a picture at any time if someone wanted a copy (and that happens a lot and sometimes I get paid for it! LOL). Convenience is King.

Here are a few specs that I figured out.

Number of photos from a single color cartridge: ~30

Approx price per photo: $.52 (With Epson glossy photo paper which I found for $16.99 for a 100 sheet box)

So, here is the deal, you are definitely paying for the convenience of printing your photos any where AND having the ability to print to letter or legal size paper. My fiancé and I have a lot of hobbies and we tend to be on the go a LOT. When we need to print out a map to somewhere or print out instructions for some kind of project while we are in the parking lot of Lowe's we count on this printer big time!

Bottom line... Is it the best and cheapest printer out there? Nope! Is the best printer for my on the go lifestyle and convenience? Totally!

I have wanted a small, lightweight travel printer for some time and after reading a number of reviews and researching a number of options I decided to buy the Canon PIXMAiP90 Photo Inkjet Printer. I travel weekly and often need the use of a printer and so the purchase of the Canon seemed timely and has proven to be a wonderful printer. I admit I also purchased the Bluetooth option and the extended batter as well so the total cost of this bundle was right around 400.00. This is a bit pricy but after using the printer dozens of times I have no regrets for purchasing the printer or the wireless and extended battery options. The printer is easy to use, quiet and prints both color and b&w documents quickly and with very very good quality. I printed an 8x11" photo on old color paper from a small image and got very impressive results. B&W documents are crisp and of an excellent quality. What else do you want from a printer. Easy, quiet, quick and sharp quality prints!

The bluetooth and extended battery options are by no means necessary but I have bluetooth and love that I don't have to carry a bunch of cables and battery charger every time I travel. The extended battery lasts a long long time. I wish I could say exactly how many hours but I have printed at least 300 pages and never had to recharge, even when the printer was not in use for more than a week.

I carry my laptop and printer in a laptop backpack and even with magazines, ipods, files and the other stuff we carry around the printer feel lightweight and doesn't add a trmendous extra weight to the pack.

Cartridge use seems adequate and I have yet to replace a cartridge. Installation of them is easy as is the installation of the software.

I give this printer a 5 star because if has exceeded my expectations of a small, lightweight travel printer, that I also use at home. I would dfeinitely purchase this printer again.

Ok where do I begin with this one...


Price - Very expensive if you want to be mobile with it.

Printer ($250 plus shipping) along with the optional bluetooth adapter (an additional $80 or so plus shipping), and also the optional battery pack kit (an additional $140 plus shipping). I paid a total of over $500 plus shipping costs for this printer and the accessories to be able to use it wireless.

Included Software - Didnt auto install and doesnt always work

I had to call tech support to find out if the disk was bad or what and we ended up going into the disk and manually installing each program which ended up not installing the icons or other little special things.

Printer/Bluetooth Installation/Setup -

If you are using a usb connection then you are ok but be warned of the "work arounds" needed and other problems when using the printer strictly with the bluetooth adapter.

The printer would not install via the bluetooth connection right out of the box. There is no documentation with the printer or bluetooth manual as to where the adapter should be installed either. I had to call tech support to find out where to install the adapter. I had to call twice to tech support in order for someone who would actually take the time out to help with the situation.

Cannon has a very weird way of a work around to get the bluetooth adapter to work with the printer and computer. First of all you have to figure out which way you want to connect the printer on your computer. Your computer's bluetooth hardware has to be configured to work with Microsofts drivers for the printer to work properly such as giving you ink status and other functions.
