Default How many prints per set of i950 ink cartridges?

I'm new to digital printing. Costs seem high. Can someone tell me approximately how many 8 X 10 prints I could expect to produce from one set of ink cartridges, using the Canon i950 at max resolution. I don't need exact numbers, I am just trying to put it into perspective. 1? 100?

Around 60-80 is what I've read.

since it uses individual cartridges each color will vary in use per the type of images you shoot. shoot at the sky or that carribean blue water a lot and cyan is history quick. my epson 2200 lately likes to consume light magenta. my daughters soccer teams shirts are purple. you'll learn in short order what colors to up your stock on versus the others. i generally try to keep 2 complete sets around at all times for those ambitious evenings.
