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...

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-10 review

 

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.

Canon Pixma PRO-100

 

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

Canon PIXMA PRO-10: A 13x19” Pigment-Ink Printer

 

Canon's 13x19”-sized printers, the PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II and PIXMA Pro9000 Mark II, have had a longer life than most, but have been replaced with two new models that are similar to the PIXMA PRO-1, introduced over a year ago. New features on both the...

Printer Review: Canon PIXMA Pro-10

 

Crank out handsome photo prints with Canon's second-tier 13-inch PIXMA printer.

Very good print quality with great color and realistic skin tones; good black-and-white print results; fast and quiet; built-in Wi-Fi option; easy set up

Fewer gray inks than the step-up model mean there’s less detail in the shadow areas; a large printer for just 13-inch output; no roll feed option

With its ten pigment inks, the Canon Pro-10 is the step-down model from the bigger and, it should be said, better 12-ink Canon Pro-1. The Pro-10 is still a high-quality, 13-inch printer that might attract pros looking to save a few bucks. (It’s $300...

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...
