If true, that's got to be a deal breaker.
Yes it is true for mine (I own a Pixma MP810 which has a slide and negative scanner but no wireless).
The ink level warning tells you first that your ink is running low and to change your cartridge but that's a very early warning. You can go on and print a lot more stuff. When the cartridge is truly empty, you can't print anything, you have to change it.
I would say it is mildly annoying but not a big deal you just change the color that's empty, not all of them.
On the other hand it is an excellent and very, very fast printer. Photo quality is as good as it gets. Much better than other multifunction that could be designed for home office functions. I wish mine was wireless.
