Hello smack,

Thank you for your question.

The Canon BJC-85 printer is still available and current. Amazon has
them for $235.99:

Provantage sells it for $228.12

I decided to check at PriceScan to see if I could find even a lower
price for you. They show $228.16 at the Nerds for the low price in
their listings, and a number of online stores all that claim stock:

The printer still shows as current at Canon USA as well. There is
another model shown there, however, that seems to be the same price
and has much better specifications. I compared the two models at this

As you can see, it is faster, prints at higher resolution (4800 x 1200
Max Resolution), has built-in 64K buffer memory (where the BJC-85 has
none) and is just a little larger and a little heavier. You might want
to consider this i70.

Pricescan shows the low price for this model at $212.00

Canon shows the specs of this printer here:

Some highlights:

"Minimal Size. Maximum Performance. 

Detailed, high-speed printing - wherever you are.

The Canon i70 Color Bubble Jet Printer delivers a remarkable
combination of high-performance and portability. It's capable of
printing up to 13 ppm in black and up to 9 ppm in color, while
achieving a resolution of up to 4800 x 1200 color dpi.* Try finding
that speed and resolution in another portable printer. Plus, Canon
advanced MicroFine Droplet Technology? uses a revolutionary nozzle
system that ejects consistent prescribed-volume droplets in
microscopic sizes, with incredible accuracy. The result? Dramatic
resolution and detail on graphics and photos, along with clean, crisp
text - from your home office, from the front seat of your car, or
wherever you are.

Borderless printing comes to portable printers.

Canon brings yet another first to portable ink jet printers: true
borderless prints, with the look and feel of traditional photographs.
Now you can produce 4" x 6", 5" x 7" or 8.5" x 11" borderless prints**
on the road, with stunning edge-to-edge quality and razor-sharp
detail. Print photos fast on the i70 printer - this mobile photo lab
prints 4" x 6" photos in approximately 90 seconds.

With the i70 printer, convenience is built-in.

With Bubble Jet Direct printing*** , and a compatible Canon digital
camera or digital camcorder you can print with or without a PC - print
anytime, any place. It is easy-to-use with sophisticated results. This
means you can shoot a picture when you're on the go and print it
immediately, which is ideal for both work and play. The i70 printer
features IrDA compatibility (Windows® only) for remote operation and a
USB interface for easy connectivity. Also includes Canon Easy-WebPrint
(Windows only) - software designed for simple, fast and hassle-free
Web page printing..."

Search Strategy:

bjc-85 +buy OR order

I trust my research has provided you with not only online purchase
options for the BJC-85, but a newer and higher performing model to
compare at a slightly lower price. If a link above should fail to work
or anything require further explanation or research, please do post a
Request for Clarification prior to rating the answer and closing the
question and I will be pleased to assist further.
