watch the shipping prices. my 2200 was $672 delivered. most of these places have $25+shipping charges due to the size and weight. my box was humongus and weighed in at 42lbs. comes with everything but the cord. don't get freaked out. you can get a 6 ft usb for about $6 today. there is no need to get a special usb 2 cable. i will tell you that having a usb2 card though helps. i've hooked it up to th FW port and the usb2 port no difference. it isn't the fastest or the slowest.

Steve, I am confused. Canon's website says the i9100 "It achieves a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 dpi* with ultra-small 4-picoliter droplets revealing precise details " That is twice as much as the old s9000

So what is the real answer? I can get a s9000 fro $320 bucks now. I can see no way in buying the 9100 and ahving to pay more and wait for it to come in.

It seems that Canon is advertising the i9100 to be able to produce borderless and have twice the resolution. My mind is swimming in confusement. I x=so confused I cant even spel anymore.

What is the visual difference between the output of an s series and a newer i series (ie 950 or 950i)? I am a fine art photographer and I suck. So, i need the best quality prints form my D-60 as possible within budgetary reason since all artsit are starving and poor.

My understanding is that the i9100 differs from the S9000 in that it places the same 4 picoliter droplet with as little as 1/4800 of an inch to achieve the 4800 dpi resolution. The i9100 can also now print a true borderless 13x19-inch print as well as the 5x7 borderless prints like the i950 with the Photo Paper Plus Glossy 5x7 paper. Other than that, I see no significant differences.

Well if you look at other printers that do 4800dpi none of them use a drop size as large as 4 picoliters. You could do it with a 3 picoliter but its very difficult to achieve with a 4 pico drop size. Personally I say go and get the s9000 if its cheaper.

i wouldn't get too tied up in the 4800/2880/1440 dpi 2pl 4pl. after you see the images that they all deliver you're going to have a tough time telling them apart from that perspective.

All right, I just got my new 9000 and printed up a few shots. Either I got a bad printer or you guys use some real shitty labs. I have read in this forum many times that the 9000 is as good as any lab.

ANy print that has a narrow depth of field or lots of sky has horendous banding. I need professional level prints and these prints upon clse inspection look like they were printed from a computer and not a lab. I also did a comparrison of a lab print and printed the same photo on my 9000. The lab was way better.

Am i just stupid and doing something totaly wrong or what?
