Source for OEM Canon Cartridges for the 9000 Mark ii?
1

Just picked up the Canon 9000 Mark ii based on reading so many of your posts here.   Planning on picking up a second one.

I realize that Canon cartridges have a limited life for refills.  (I'm told only about five times.)

Question: Are there any good sources for blank/empty original Canon CLI-8 ink cartridges at affordable prices?  I think I saw one online somewhere where they charged about $45 for a set of eight empties. That's quite a bit it seems - and that's not including shipping.  And do I need to flush out the empties of the dried ink or is it OK to just refill right away using the German method?

I searched on ebay but am not sure if I had the correct search terms.

And for the bonus question....are Hobbicolors on ebay good quality ink for refilling the CLI-8 cartridges?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
