Canon i950

As successor to the popular but discontinued Canon S900 photo printer, the Canon i950 doubles the S900's resolution and halves its dot size. The result: this photo printer is quick, compact, and attractively priced. Most importantly, however, it delivers high-quality pictures for photographers on a budget. The i950's design mimics that of its little brother, the i850, but in charcoal, putty, and silver plastic instead of silver and blue. At 16.5 by 10.8 by 6.3 inches (width, depth, and height, respectively), the i950 is nicely compact too, compared to competing photo printers such as the Epson Stylus Photo 925 (23.4 by 19.4 by 12.2 inches), with curved paper trays that tuck snugly into the body. When they're extended, though, those paper trays feel a bit flimsy for our comfort. The rest of the printer appears almost featureless: two buttons for power and paper feed and a green power light sit on the top, and a lone USB port and power connector occupy the back panel.
