The Canon Pixma Pro-10 is a printer aimed at professionals and dedicated enthusiasts who value beautiful photographic prints and want to make them themselves.

Outstanding print quality with pigment inks ; Bundled Print Studio Pro software’s Pro Mode makes expert color management easier than ever ; Wi-Fi, ethernet, and USB connectivity

Initial software installation process can be confusing ; Print Studio Pro printing app doesn’t work with Aperture

The choice is not an easy one. The Pixma Pro-10 costs more than the Pixma Pro-100 initially, and will continue to cost more with each print you make. And in most of my test prints, I found it hard to tell the difference between the Pro-10’s prints and...

Print size up to 13x19, Excellent output quality, Black inks generate excellent monochrome prints

Large and heavy, Slower print times

In general, stepping up from a home/consumer photo printer to one that is capable of doing justice to true photography is a large and expensive leap. The paradox is, while the Pro-100 is considerably more expensive than a consumer model, it’s actually...

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.

Many of the photographs taken these days are shot with cameras embedded in smartphones, and most of these cameras are around 8 megapixels. That's fine if you're going to post the images online or print them out at 4 x 6 or 8 x 10 inches, which a...

Very good output quality when printing high-resolution image files ; Large capacity ink cartridges ; Three black inks can generate excellent monochrome prints ; Wi-Fi connectivity

Large and heavy ; No memory card slots ; Can only handle cut sheet paper, not rolls ; Speed is not its forte

Speed is not the Canon Pixma Pro-10’s specialty. Rather, this professional inkjet large-format printer will give you print quality that’s worthy of being displayed at an art gallery.

The Canon Pixma PRO-100 may be at the low end of near-dedicated photo printers geared to photo enthusiasts, but it still produces photos worthy of hanging in a gallery.

Moderately priced for a near-dedicated photo printer. Outputs gallery-worthy photos. Reasonably fast

Some color issues, mostly in graphics

The Canon Pixma PRO-100may be the new junior model in Canon's professional photo inkjet line, but as such it can still output gallery-quality prints at sizes up to 13 by 19 inches. It's a good choice for an amateur photographer who's looking to take...

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

The printer is packaged in the usual Canon way - neatly with a lot of blue tape to remove, and with good directions, starting with the quick start installation guide.

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...

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
