Canon offers the PIXMA TR150 and the TS202 as portable printers. Both use combined cartridges and disposable print heads. What's the smallest Canon printer that has individual ink tanks and separate print heads?

I think that only the TR150 can be classified as a portable printer, with a built in battery. I think the TR202 should be classified as a stationary printer. No other Canon printers are classified as portable printers.

The smallest and least expensive Canon printer with separate ink tanks might be the TS6320, with 5 ink tanks. There is also the more expensive TS8320 with 6 ink tanks.

As these models use the PGI-280/CLI-281 cartridges they are expensive to use as no resetters are available and even aftermarket refillable and single use cartridges are very expensive.

Jose Rodriguez (@jtoolman ) found out how to refill the 280/281 OEM cartridges (580/581 in Europe). I think he advises to disable the ink monitoring.
Sadly enough there aren't much refillable printers left.
