This just in from Costco.....
This will probably be this great printer's swan song....looks like Canon wants them gone ASAP to make room for the more profitable next generation.
More info on Canon CLI-8 printers in this forum.
Can be modded to direct-print disks.
Grab one before the eBayers snap them all up.
If it's like last major generation shift* (2004) some of these (NOS) cherished printers will bring 2-3 times this cost in 1-2 years on eBay.
*This was when non-chipped cart machines were phasing out and the first of the chippers were being introduced.
The non-chipped cart machines sold for a king's ransom on eBay after the dust cleared.
The non-chippers are super easy to refill.
The CLI-8 class can now be home-reset so they are as useful now as the older non-chippers are.
