    Hello everybody,

    My office bought one of these printers a couple months ago, based upon the good reviews at www.dpreview.com (a site that caters to professional photographers).

    We have used it ONLY to print digital photos. We have printed only a few dozen photos so far (8.5 x 11), but we've just emptied our 2nd "photo magenta" cartridge. Is this unexpected? How often do you folks (i960 or i950 owners) have to change ink tanks?

    Also, where can I get the best prices on replacement tanks? Should I stick with genuine Canon ink, or is it safe to use cheaper off-brands? Any tips that will make photo printing more economical would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Thanks for the info, Brett.

    This is the first time either the boss or I have used a dedicated photo printer. We just wanted to be sure nothing was wrong.
