Default Canon i550 & i850 Running costs

Can anybody tell me roughly how much ink i will go through if i use these printers to print 6 x 4 colour borderless.
I have tried to find this out from canon uk, fi and europe but i get the same old jargon about 5% coverage etc, and i know this is nothing to do with the actual ink usage when printing photo's.
I know it depends on the colours printed and quality etc.
basically all i want to know is what it costs for ink and paper to print my own holiday snaps as opposed to having my digi prints done down a my local developers at €0.39 a print... :?:

Thanks Willibobs

www.tomshardware.com has tested a number of different printers in 2002 and gives relative cost per page B&W vs color for each tested printer. Look under "Peripherals and Consume Electronics".

Hi

Just had a look at the Tomshardware link http://www6.tomshardware.com/consume...tml#canon_i850

I was thinking it was pretty good then I noticed he's working on a cost of 66 per cartridge set, the actual cost here in the UK is nearer 37 (6 for each colour and 7 for black) so it's almost half what they quote

Thats just the info i was looking for and also what i wanted to hear.
The ink is a little cheaper here in finland €43 to €50 a set but the printers are more expensive eg ( i550 €200)

Many thanks Willibobs

Try http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/default.php?cPath=777

They do Canon originals and also compatibles, originals are under 9 for colour and under 12 for black.
