The PIXMA MG5220 is a higher-end, wireless photo all-in-one inkjet printer from Canon. It can print a 4x6 color photo in 20 seconds at up to 9600x2400dpi and scan documents at 2400x4800dpi. With 802.11n wireless technology, it is a good option for users of Wi-Fi-enabled iPhones and digital cameras. Featuring faster print speeds and twice the scan resolution, the MG5220 is a step up in several ways from the wired MG5120, also released in late summer 2010. Both models are equipped with a 2.4" LCD display for previewing photos, and Pictbridge technology for printing directly from a camera or phone connected via cable or optional Bluetooth. They support auto duplexing, enabling double-sided printing without the need to manually flip the page. Other features include the ability to print a full-HD movie frame through included software. Like other Canon models, the printer uses five individual ink tanks to reduce waste.

I got this printer brand new on clearance at Best Buy for $30! It comes with all the required ink, so it was cheaper to buy the printer with ink than buying the ink alone ($75 for the colour cartridges and $40 for the black).

Sounds like a good buy. You can't go wrong at that price for the ink alone.
