I noticed Canon Japan web site
http://cweb.canon.jp/pixus/lineup/ip4100/
has a new range of printers looking through their list I can not see a
IP5100 to replace the IP5000. it seems that they have dropped their
1pl print heads from the ranges mentioned which seems a little odd,
as one would have expected the 1pl heads be used in the newer
high-end range of printers, wonder why this is..?

I love my iP5000. The output is a step beyond what my earlier i860
(today's iP4000) can do. Sure the output takes longer at 9600 dpi, but
the difference is well worth the wait. Graininess is virtually
eliminated. I run it on a combination of compatible (BCI-6) and bulk
BCI-3e) inks.

I'd hate to go down a level to an iP4100 - unless this new line finally
included the missing CD/DVD print capability.

My concern is that they may clog but I have not heard of that happening
so it is anyones guess.

With today’s technology the size of the print heads is rather irrelevant
concerning clogging. What really matters is how it is technically
implemented and how the ink is prepared for and delivered.
You're really an uninformed amateur aren't you?
Get lost.

I understand what Taliesyn is saying and you have gotta agree that a
finer nozzle will produce a better resolution, vertical resolution
to be exact - no problem there, and you gotta agree it will take
slightly longer to print but with finer detail producing a better
picture.

I simply was curious as to why the finer 1pl head was not used in the
latest models on Canon Japan site since they do produce a 'grainfree
picture'.

Its gotta be noted from various sites that clogging DOES NOT seem to
be a issue with the Pixma range compared to other printers, Epson
seems to be more notorious for this - just look and observe and you
will see what I mean.

I find it hard to find any complaints with clogging on the IP5000's
but why have they been dropped, I would imagine a printer
manufacturer would 'bloat' about the 1pl print head like Epson
about their Peizo heads

When it comes to buying printers its NOT the review's that I take note
of.

It could be commercial reasons. The main selling point of the ip5000 over
the ip4000 was the 1pl. Perhaps it didn't sell as they'd hoped.
I have the IP5000 and I am blown away by it. Photo quality is better than
the ip4000 and no clogging to report.

According to reviews at PC Mag, the IP5000 is many steps ahead of the
IP4000 in business document printing and a small step behind in the
printing of photos. It is still rated very high and is a giant leap
ahead of the Epson R300 series.

occurs in film photos not in digital photos. Digital photos has noise
that are similar looking artifacts.

Maybe the IP4100 is the Japanese version of the IP4000.

Bullshit limited reviews done by hacks with no built-in eyes.

I'm printing with inkjet dots. And in the inkjet printing industry
graininess is the term used to describe how visible the ink jet dots are
that comprise the picture. The less visible grain (dots) the better the
printer and the picture or graphic. The use of the word "graininess"
may not suit your fancy but it is used by everyone but you. Then again,
I'm not surprised. Graininess is negligible with the iP5000 compared to
my i860 or your iP4000, which use the exact same printhead.

And Epson printers guzzle ink to keep the problem at a minimum.

Has it really been dropped or were they ever offered in the Japanese
market. My understanding of the IP5000 is that the 1pl droplet size is
used in business documents not photos but I may be misinformed.

Maybe but I am curious why they said what they said. We know they were
correct about the speed.

And the entire Photographic Industry. Remember that the photo industry
is over 100 years old. The inkjet industry is 10 yearts old and the
photo inkjet industry is really about 5 years old.

So when do you think the 1pl droplet size happens?

the IP5000 is one step behind in photo quality and yet better at

That is the only review that claims this (unless you can point me to
another). Every other review states the 1pl really does make a difference.
Comparing output from my IP5000 with my friends IP4000 we both agree the
IP5000 is well ahead.

Did you use the exact same photo file and set the printer preferences
the same way?

I too was surprised when I read the PC Mag review and wondered how they

And that is elementary logic, my dear "Watson", because a photo at the
iP5000's maximum dpi of 9600 will take longer to print than a photo at
iP4000's maximum dpi of 4800. Higher resolution ALWAYS takes more time.
The difference between my iP5000 and my i860 is about a minute, and it's
worth the wait.

How do you figure 5 years, there were inkjets long before that. I had my
first inkjet, an Epson 500 back in 1995. That's 10 right there, and I
know they existed much before that. And if they existed it's an "industry".

Anyway, stop changing the subject, it's not about "sacred" history.

Straight from the makers of our printers (Canon):

"When printing using the inkjet method, large ink droplets may
appear as graininess when they hit the paper. Thoroughly removing this
graininess results in smoother, more natural-looking images."

That's all I'm trying to tell you about graininess.

I don't know, suffice to say it definitely appears at highest resolution
settings. If it also occurs at the lower range, so be it. I haven't run
tests at lower ranges as I don't see why anyone would need to know this
insignificant detail.

Same image, same paper, default driver settings.

Do you know of any other reviews claiming this?

It is difficult to find truly comparative review setting one printer
head to head with another. I think that many magazines do not want to
bite the hand that feeds them to hard.

Clown, repeating what Abe said - the actual words were written down,
so we know what he said - is an ass of a different color from quoting
someone else printer tests. You had no part in those tests, you never
saw the results, but you quote the reviewer's word as fact.

But we know what the reviewer said and I am referring to what was said.

I am quoting what the reviewer said and that is a fact. Read it for
yourself and he did say what I said. If he made a mistake or his test
was incomplete it is still a fact that what I quote was his conclusion.

One thing though, Canon and Epson makes it very difficult to compare
their models against each other and against themselves. They should
have a demo in the stores that allow you to print the same file on
multiple printer using the same paper. If that gets too expensive for
them then they should sell you a 5 demo pack of Canon Photo Paper Pro
4x6 for less then 10 cents a sheet so you can test their printers.
Unfortunately they do not do this.
