I bought an ip6000d a few days ago, and I am very disappointed. Every picture has a pinkish hue to it. Seems a little heavy on the magenta. Did some reading online and it appears others notice this too. This is unacceptable! I took the SD card to compusa and tried it on their floor model and it did the same thing. I am going to return it and get a ip5000, I think. I've read good things about it, but Ihave some concerns.

Can a 4 ink printer ( 3 color, 2 black) really print photos that well?

Do i need the ip5000, or will the ip4000 work just as well?

I want good quality photo printing (4x6), (No Text printing will be done, I have another printer for that.) Pictbridge compatible, and the low cost and convenience of replacing the new canon ink tanks.

Any input would be appreciated.

Martin

The two blacks in the ip4000/5000 the smaller is a dye photo black and the larger tank a pigment black for text, there are a couple of reveiws that may help.

Just click on Steves Digicam above on the left and navigate to the pixma review. But I would suggest have a peek at photo-i - they have photo comparisons of the ip5000 and other higher class printers - not sure if they compare it against the ip6000, a feeling they do, another site is Toms Hardware Tools.

I have the ip6000D, and I haven't noticed any problems with hue. Maybe I just got lucky.
