Default Canon S9000 ink

Just ordered the S9000 and was wondering where one could find the best prices relative to purchasing ink cartridges. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

No affiliation with these guys except it is where I bought my S9000.

After several weeks and lots of prints I can tell you to order the photo cyan and photo magenta in a ratio of 3:1 over the other colors. Next most used is yellow. Regular cyan and magenta go aways and I've barely dented the black tank.

If you want even less expensive ink (non canon) then check out these guys:

Scroll down to the listing for the S900 printer, all the tanks are priced at $6.25.

And don't get discouraged if everywhere you go they seem to be out of Canon Photo Paper Pro. Canon just finished up a 2 for 1 paper giveaway and it nearly dried up the nation's stock of paper. Most dealers are now getting their supplies filled again. B&H in NY just got a truckload of it and my ten packs of 4x6" just showed up Friday.

Thank you Steve, I appreciate your assistance. Seems I'm always a day late and a dollar short on good deals. What type of paper have you found to be the best for the 9000 for prints from 4X6 to 8X10's ? and what location has seems to have reasonable prices?
