Default Any good deals on original Canon ink??

Does anyone know if Canon offers any kind
of quantity deal on BCI inks for the Canon S9000?


I read about a BJC 8200 Photo Upgrade kit which is supposed
to offer a deal on all 6 ink tanks, but it seems like it is
not available in the US.

I do a lot printing and I would not mind buying original
Canon ink in larger quantities if the price was somewhat
lower.

If anyone knows of any deal, please let me know.

I just ordered a Canon i950, been searching the web for ink deals, have not found anyone who sells original Canon ink other than Canon. Have you or anyone tried the OEM versions on a S900 or S9000 that uses the same ink cartridges? Interested if the quality is noticable compared to the Canon brands - big price difference...

I recently purchased Carrot ink cartridges
for my S9000.

Haven't used them yet.

I will be installing them over the next week or so.

I'll let you know the results.

I finally got around to replacing all the ink in my Canon s9000
with Carrot ink.

It is by far the best aftermarket ink I have used.

The results are good, but if you compare them to
the Canon ink, there is a difference.

I made identical prints with both inks.
The ones with the Canon ink have a warmer look
to them in the red/magenta area.

If you had nothing to compare, the Carrot inks look good,
but I still like the look of the Canon ink better.

But I don't know if t's worth the difference in price.

put it in the sun for a 2 weeks along with an original canon ink produced print. may the least faded win. don't forget to make reference prints and keep them in a envelope then you'll match them up after the 2 weeks. longevity is the key.

I think the only place you could get cannon ink cheaper would be EBAY.

Every month or so, Best Buy will give a free pack of 4x6 borderless Photo Paper Pro (20 sheets) with the purchase of any two BCI-6 inks. I think this is the best deal I've seen.
