Canon's newest printer signals a departure from the old ways
The new iP6200D takes a leaf out of HP's book by building the print heads into tri-colour cartridges, rather than having them mounted in the printer. The bonus is that you get a new print head with every cartridge and, while this can mean high running costs, the iP6220D is pretty frugal.
Full direct printing facilities include a multi-format card reader, 2.5-inch LCD screen and simple yet versatile control system. The full six-ink arsenal is great for full-ranging colour in photos but, mono document printing is slow and expensive with greyish text. Matthew Richards
