Canon Pixma Pro-1 review

 

In the photo-printing category, Canon offers three lineups. At the lower-priced end of the category is the consumer-centric Pixma series, while on the other end of the spectrum is the professional imagePROGRAF wide-format series. We're talking a range...

12 colors of inks produce excellent output quality ; Wide-format ; Five black inks can generate excellent monochrome prints

Large, heavy, and pricey (if we must complain) ; Limited to 13-inch media

If you’re a serious photographer and high-quality prints matter to you, you should invest in a prosumer photo printer like Canon’s Pro-1.

Canon Pixma PRO-1

 

The Canon Pixma PRO-1 is large, slow, and expensive for an A3+ photo printer, but it delivers where it counts: in producing magnificent, gallery-quality prints.

Magnificent photo quality. Especially good for monochrome photos. Above-par graphics and text. Higher-capacity ink tanks than its rivals

Relatively slow. Large and heavy. Pricey for an A3+ printer. Can't print from paper rolls

Canon PIXMA PRO-1

 

The first thing you're going to notice is that you're not dealing with a typical 13x19 size printer here. The box is huge! Side by side with the Epson 3880 (a 17” printer), you'd be hard pressed to say which has a bigger capacity. Much of this size is...

Canon Pixma Pro-1

 

We found almost no complaints from Canon Pixma Pro-1 owners about breakdowns or clogged nozzles -- both more common problems with the Epson R3000. Some owners do complain that the Canon guzzles ink, but others point out that this is only true with the...

Superb photos up to 13 by 19 inches, 12 big ink tanks, Fast, automatic black ink switching, Chroma optimizer improves glossy prints, Smooth and reliable

Tweaks needed to get best B&W matte prints

Canon Pixma Pro-1 Review: Second to None

 

The Canon Pixma Pro-1 Professional Inkjet Printer is the new flagship model of Canon's photo inkjet lineup, following in the footsteps of the popular Pixma Pro9000 Mark II and Pixma Pro9500 Mark II.

Virtually PERFECT color accuracy without manual calibration ; Fantastic retention of highlight and shadow detail without clipping to white or black ; Reasonably fast printing at high quality

Ink runs out fast even with the larger tanks ; No built-in Wi-Fi ; This thing is HUGE and HEAVY

The Canon Pixma Pro-1 Professional Inkjet Printer is available now through Canon and authorized retailers for the suggested selling price of $999.99.

It produces some of the best photos we've ever seen, but this printer is very expensive to buy and run
