Printer Review: PIXMA MP950|

Canon's MP950 is not just a printer. It's a copier and scanner, too. But it doesn't just scan reflective copy -- it can scan color negs and slides.
With its $399.99 MP950, Canon has rethought the printer game, producing a rather large box that includes not just a printer but a copier and a scanner, too. Also included is a card reader and PictBridge port. And a generous 3.6-inch color LCD panel lets you run the whole thing without turning on your computer. Built-in intelligence automatically corrects red eye, sharpness and brightness values (or you can fine tune them yourself). Canon has built a photo lab into this box.
It took a while to appreciate just how versatile this box is. You can put a cherished print on its platen and a few minutes later have a duplicate every bit as detailed as the original.
Or you can dig through your old color negative (and even older slides), pop them in the MP950's easy-to-use holders and get prints without ever turning your computer on.
