Comparative test: Canon Pixma iP100 vs. HP Officejet H470: What´s in the box
Both printers come in different versions and with options to add features.
Canon Pixma iP100
Canon´s mobile Pixma iP100 has two versions:
- Canon Pixma iP100 and
- Canon Pixma iP100 with rechargeable battery
The first comes without, the second with a rechargeable battery, and costs about 50 Euros more than the former. If you decide to by a battery later, it will cost you an expensive 150 Euros. A rechargeable battery is much less expensive with the HP.
For wireless printing the Canon features a built-in infrared interface. That´s an outdated and fault-prone technology, since you need a line of sight connection. And the distance between transmitter and receiver is supposed to be less than one meter. Using WLAN is not possible. There is an optional Bluetooth adapter for approx. 90 Euros - pretty expensive.
