I have a question concerning the ink monitor on my Canon i860. I've printed quite a few 4X6's and a couple of 8X10's, but the Ink monitor hasn't changed at all. At first I was happy that it wasn't moving, now I'm conerned. With my Epson Photo 820, the ink started to drop as soon as i printed my first 4X6. Is the canon just that good on ink or is something wrong with the monitor?

Has anyone else had a problem with the monitor?

Thanks,

Dave

The Canon Ink monitors move down at incremements. When you print a few more photos, a few cartridges will show that they are 2/3rd's full. The ink levels won't always be accurate, but the printer will know when the ink is out. You can also take out the ink cartridge, and see the ink levels for yourself.

I've used 2 cameras, one is the Sony F717 which is 5 MP, the otehr is Canon Digital Rebel, which is about 6.3 MP. Both prints turned out really good, couldn't tell they were from digital. The only thing I saw was the Canon seems to have better color than the Sony. But as far as 8X10 Quality, both very good.
