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.

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