Are the cartridges for ip5000 and 5200 the same?

I have an Canon ip5200 ... I have found ip5000 compatibles at a good price:

Will they fit the 5200, or did Canon change the spec?

They are not interchangeable. The ip5000 uses the BCi3 uncipped series and the ip5200 uses the CLi-8 chipped cartridges.

Any thoughts on a good supplier for the ip5200 cartridges(genuine or compatible)?

Thanks spuds; I'll have a look!

I have yet to find any compatible cartridges for the ip4200 which my daughter has or the ip5200. I think that these chipped cartridges, unusual for Canon but I think they are jumping on the Epson bandwagon, are too new for compatibles yet.

doesn't look like they do compatables for the 5200 only originals :-(

Jusr found this:-

"We have recently inspected the new Canon cartridges for the printers listed above and spoken to the compatible brand manufacturers. Canon now has proprietary (patented) parts on the cartridges meaning no one except Canon can make the cartridges or work around the patented parts, at least not at this time."

Looks like it's the canon route for a while. I'll tick the thread now!

Hiya all...

1st post this so forgive me if I've missed something.

The 5200 compatibles are now on ebay to the relief of myself and a mate I talked into getting the Canon. As mentioned tho, Canon's chips are patented so when you buy these (from ebay anyway) you'll need to take the chip from the origonal and put it into the compatable.

Just how easy this is remains to be seen. I'm a little weary about trying it on a printer that set me back nearly a ton!

If anyone else has any experience of this I'd love to hear what they have to say...

Cheers folks!
