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

The Canon Pixma PRO-1 is Canon's new flagship A3+ photo printer, capable of producing high-quality prints at up to 13 by 19 inches. It is a step up from the Canon Pixma Pro9500 Mark II, employing more and larger ink tanks and clocking faster...

Canon's 13-inch printer is a big and bold addition to the professional PIXMA line-up.

The new Canon PIXMA PRO-1 is a 13x19” pigment-ink printer that makes fine quality prints in a price range that could be considered quite fair for what you get ($999). Aimed at avid photographers and enthusiast printmakers, as well as pros choosing to...

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.

Canon Pixma Pro-1 review

 

Canon's big, fat, high-end A3+ printer is the best yet

Excellent colour and mono prints ; High volume ink tanks ; Excellent software ; Robust build quality

Premium price ; Large and heavy ; No borderless on some fine art paper ; Custom profiles required for highest quality

The Canon Pixma Pro-1 A3+ printer stands at the top of Canon's Pixma Pro inkjet printer range. Priced at £799 in the UK and $999.99 in the US and aimed squarely at 'serious' professional photographers, the Pro-1 is pitched as the world's first 12-ink...

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

Canon Pixma Pro-1 review

 

Canon's new A3+ photo and artwork printer is the first model outside the company's large-format range to offer 12 inks – and the first to feature a design inspired by Canon's line of DSLRs. While the Pixma Pro-1's appearance has no effect on the...

Owners of the 9500 Mk II may not find an immediate reason to upgrade to the Pro-1, but if you do need a new printer for proofing or making saleable prints, Canon’s Pixma Pro-1 is the new one to want.
