Canon Pixma iP4920 Review: First Look

by Reads (3,101)


Canon introduced two new Pixma photo printersPixma MG5320 and Pixma iP4920 – targeted at consumers and at home professionals late last month. We recently reviewed the Pixma MG5320 All-in-One and now we have turned our attention to the single function Pixma iP4920 Premium Inkjet Photo Printer.

The Pixma iP4920 will be replacing the Pixma iP4820 we reviewed last fall. Like the Pixma iP4820, the Pixma iP4920 will feature five individual ink tanks, a high print resolution up to 9600 x 2400 dpi and two-way paper feeding. But it also includes faster print speeds up to 12.5 ipm and CD/DVD printing.

Today, we’ll take a hands-on first look at the Pixma iP4920 with more detailed specs, build and design information as well as plenty of photos from our photo lab.


  • Single function inkjet
  • Print speeds: up to 12.5 ipm in black and 9.3 ipm in color
  • 4×6 photo print: approx. 20 seconds
  • Print resolution: up to 9600 x 2400 dpi
  • CD/DVD printing
  • Automatic duplexing
  • Five individual ink tanks
  • Paper capacity: 150 sheet cassette, 150 sheet rear tray
  • Connectivity: Hi-Speed USB 2.0
  • Operating Systems: Windows, Mac OS X
  • Energy Star qualified
  • 1-year limited warranty


The Pixma iP4920 shares a near identical design with the iP4820 with glossy black paneling and sliver accents. Even the overall dimensions are the same in both storage mode and print mode at approximately 17 x 12 x 6 inches and 17 x 21 x 12 inches, respectively.


The 150-sheet rear tray is actually found on the top of the Pixma iP4920 and extends out to the rear. This tray is great for unusual sized media – think envelopes, invitations, etc. – as well as photo and art paper that look better printing through a straight paper path.

Pull open the front of the Pixma iP4920 to access the 100-sheet output tray, the CD/DVD print option and the print head. Open the center panel with the Canon logo to insert the removable CD/DVD tray.
