    Hi. Im looking to buy a Canon Pixma IP8750 A3 printer. I only wish to print A3 sized photographs.

    My question is, when using the printer solely for A3 photograph printing, how long on average, can I expect the ink cartridges to last before they will need to be replaced.

    For example, could I expect to get 30 prints before the ink needs replacing......any ideas anyone?

    Thank you

    @rossi, the iP8750 printer comes with setup cartridges only, so therefore you’ll not get that many print from such small cartridges, I can recommend a bigger bang for your money would be a Pro 100 or Pro 10, yes, they cost more initially but they are much cheaper to run than the iP8750 by a country mile..

    colors won't be used equally so every cartridge will be empty at a different time, you may use a ballpark number of 1.5 to 2 ml ink usage per A3 sheet for orientation, all colors together. If you want to print photos on a more than accidental rate you are better off with the recommended A3 printers, they are made for that. And there are more questions to consider - what are you planning to do with the printouts - selling - posting on your own living room or ... and there is the question whether you plan or consider refilling .

    Thanks everyone. I am planning on selling the printouts. The reason I liked the IP8750 is it has the highest dpi rating of 9600x2400.

    The Canon Pro 100 and 10 Pixma A3 printers have a dpi of 4800x2400.

    Does this mean that the more expensive Pro100 and Pro10 models will have a poorer picture quality than the higher dpi rated Ip8750?

    just forget those numbers, they are advertising stuff and not relevant for you, the physical dot resolution of Canon printers is 600 dpi, but such a dot has a color which needs to be rendered - by a kind of subpixels as a mix of the available inks - and those are controlled by the printer firmware to the level of 4800 or 9600 dpi - within that dot, but you cannot print microfilm resolution which would come close to 9600 dpi. And don't consider printouts of the pro 10, 100, 100 or comparable models of Epson inferior to the IP8750, it is more to the opposite, the overall color space - the amount of colors and their max. saturation are much more relevant to judge printer quality than those marketing 9600 numbers. And as you indicate to sell your prints you should consider as well another property of inkjet prints - their longevity under typical usage situations - not just in the album or the cabinet. Pigment ink prints with the Pro 10(s) or Pro 1000 are performing much better in this respect than prints with dye inks.

    @The Hat You say the Pro 100S will be cheaper to run by a country mile than the IP8750 - both seem to use 13 ml cartridges, so why is the Pro 100s cheaper to run?

    The Pro 100 uses 8 CLI-42 cartridges to the iP8750’s 6 CLI-551, again the CLI-42 cartridges are a clear winner, and for ease of use with paper handling and general layout the Pro 100 is superior in all respects, I have experience with very similar printers and my choice still stands, you’d never be sorry if you choose the Pro 100...
    The iP8750 is a fine machine in its own right, but for professional photos the Pro model range wins out...

    Your first set of 551 Set-up cartridges will be gone in no time and your next purchased set of XL cartridges will cost you an arm and a leg, so check out the cost of these two types of cartridges first, plus you’ll be changing the cartridges far more frequent in the iP8750 with its crazy cleaning cycles...
