Hi all !

Is it possible to use the ink for e.g. Canon G3000 series printer and fill cartridges for a Pixma ip 8750 printer? The G3000 series uses GI-590<-> ink which is less expensive than Pixma CLI-xxx ink.

@The Hat with the speedy answer for the win! :clap

I was busy looking up the inksets while you snuck in. ;)

The rabbit may have been first to post but the tortoise wins the race.

Inks used with the IP8750:

The dye-based inks (C, M, Y, GY and BK) produce stunning quality colour photos while the pigment black ink (PBK) is used to create documents with crisp, sharp text. Genuine Canon inks feature the ChromaLife100+ system, producing photo-lab quality photos that can also last a lifetime.

The GI-590 are not only an incomplete set of colors needed but also inferior archival capability compared to the inks used by the IP8750.

Yes, you can use the Dye-based CYM inks and the Pigment Black ink of the GI-590 inkset, but what to do about the Dye-based Black and Grey?

Consider the GI-23 inkset (or whatever the equivalent model number in your country) that has all the Dye-based ink colors the IP8750 requires and uses ChromaLife ink set. It's not the ChromaLife+ used in the IP8750 but it's better than the GI-590 non-ChromaLife.

PS You do not need the GI-23 Red ink, so buying a multipack would be a waste.
