N-Photo may be ded­i­cated to Nikon cam­eras, but we’ve al­ways loved Canon’s print­ers. How­ever, a lot of what we used to love about them has been stripped out of this one. It lacks a sec­ondary tray for photo pa­per and doesn’t have a rear sheet feeder, so you have to swap plain and photo pa­per in the main in­put tray ev­ery time you want to switch be­tween doc­u­ment and photo print­ing. It also lacks a built-in card reader for stand­alone print­ing from me­mory cards and can’t print on CD/DVD discs.

In its favour, the bud­get­con­scious MG5750 has a rea­son­ably large and clear 2.4-inch screen, uses ex­actly the same ink car­tridges as the pricier MG6850, and matches the lat­ter for photo print speeds. It also de­liv­ers ex­actly the same high-level print qual­ity for photo out­put, as dis­cussed in the MG6850 re­view.

Pros Fairly fast print speeds; rea­son­ably large, clear screen; good qual­ity out­put Cons

No sec­ondary in­put tray for photo pa­per so you have to swap pa­per; no card reader We say

Print qual­ity is very pleas­ing but the pricier Canon MG6850 is bet­ter value Over­all score

It’s a bit of a bare-bones af­fair but the 2.4-inch screen is a de­cent size, even if it’s not a touch­screen
