I think some people buy this printer for major high res photo printing. This is not it's purpose! If you want a high end resolution printer then go and purchase the right one. Canon is not selling the product to this market space. They are selling it as a printer to quickly and easily print 4 x 6 photos out. It does this perfectly. Only downside is that Canon's app needs some work (ie adding in some cool functionality available today in free instagram apps).It is fast, kids enjoy watching it, easy to get up and running, air print works like a dream and it is the perfect DIY photobooth / cork board printer.
