I just checked Canon's website for Vista-64 drivers for the printer
family you mentioned. I found driver and software updates for Vista-64
listed for a couple models I checked on a very long list.
To check yourself for a specific model try:
'Canon Global' (http://www.canon.com
), then Americas, US, Support,
printers, pick your series and you'll see a long list of Vista supported
printer models. Select yours or one you are interested in to check if a
driver is currently available for Vista-64. I suspect it is.
I also like Canon printers. It's just that I got started with Epson
and have remained loyal.
Canon developed inkjet printer technology back in the very early '80s
(1983 if I remember correctly.) While working for a computer peripheral
manufacturing company, I took an article to work from a Popular Science
issue describing Canon's "invention" of an inkjet printhead using
"oilcan" technology. Electrical current applied to the back of the
"oilcan" caused it to "poink" which squirted the ink out on the paper.
I shared the article with the Director of Service Support, he
apparently sent it to our engineering group and it wasn't long before
our company was selling the Canon printer under our company brand name.
It was quite popular with our corporate clients as it offered letter
quality print capability when dot-matrix printers were not and laser
printers were still "very" expensive.
