Canon Pixma iP4950

RH Numbers

This is a photo printer, often referred to as single-function in reviews, but in fact it’s capable of print from a PictBridge camera and directly onto a CD/DVD/Blu-ray, as well as through more conventional routes. It has duplex print and twin trays, so you can load plain at the front and photo at the back. It prints reasonably quickly, getting a 15 x 10cm photo out in around 50s and has five inks, so photo prints are helped with a photo black. Photo print quality is excellent for a budget machine, with natural colours and good detail, even in the dark shades. You should be able to pick one up for under £60.

This is one of Epson’s big black, glossy photo all-in-ones at the high end of its range. It has a touch screen with surrounding touch panel and includes a powered photo tray, memory card slots and automatic direct disc print. Wireless connection is standard. Most Epsons boast fast photo print and this one produces a 15 x 10cm print in less than 30s. Photos, from its six inks, which include light cyan and light magenta, are good, with above average rendition of colours in light and dark shades. PC World is currently selling this machine for a bargain £80.
