Worked Great


from Dayton, OH  -  Frequent User

I had to print a large amounts of pictures for an even, and the colors turned out great, and I had no issue with the inks. Quick delivery from Adorama helps.


The real thing


from Lake Charles, LA  -  Frequent User

This ink cartridge and all other CLI-42 cartridges (8 in all) are the only approved ink cartridges for my Cannon PRO-100 printer. Although pricey, it works well and has a long usable life.


Expensive Ink


from Greensboro NC  -  Frequent User

The cartridges for this ink are very small and seem to empty very fast. I have a similar Epson printer with larger cartridges (about 40%) that has a lower cost ink. The print quality of the Canon is good.


A part of my arsenal


from NEW YORK  -  Infrequent User

I have really good color reproduction and the value pack is a nice deal. No complaints on my end!


will always buy this from Adorama


from Victorville CA  -  Frequent User

Fantastic 13" x 19" prints with this ink!


Canon printer and inks is good value


from Washington, DC  -  Frequent User

Love our new Canon MX 922 color ink jet printer. Easy to use, good quality prints of photos and graphics. It's all in the inks! Also, Canon tech support is excellent, if and when you need it.


Canon CLI-42 Color 8 Ink


from Washington, DC  -  Infrequent User

This is the color cartridges with our Canon Photo printer. Having the gray cartridge enhances the mid-tones in our color photos and gives greater range in our black and white photos.


Good value


from Memphis TN  -  Frequent User

Not much to say about the ink. Price and delivery speed from Adorama was great


Unmatched vivid color reproduction


from Tall Timbers, Maryland  -  Frequent User

Used for my recently purchased Pixmia Pro 100 and is unparralled in color reproduction on this printer.


Expensive but worth it.


from Brooklyn, NY  -  Frequent User

I am printing 13 by 19 on the Pro 100 printer. The results are magnificent, and extremely true to the image on my P.C. If you are spending this much money on ink, I would urge you to print on the Canon "Pro Platinum" paper. The difference is worth the extra cost. I do mostly wildlife photography, with an excellent camera and expensive lenses; why would I skimp on ink?
