Canon Pixma Pro-1


The Pixma Pro-1 is Canon's latest addition to its A3+ (13-inch) pigment ink printer lineup. Intended to sit a category above, rather than replace either the Pixma Pro9000 Mark II or Pro9500 Mark II models, the Pro-1 sets its sights on a more...

Outstanding print quality for color and black and white ; Large capacity ink cartridges ; Three gray ink dilutions for smooth transitions in monochrome output ; Chroma optimizer eliminates gloss differential and reduces bronzing ; Direct support for...

Most expensive A3+ printer on the market ; Large footprint for an A3+ printer ; Accurate shadow detail requires a custom profile ; Reduced printable area on some fine art media ; Print plug-in offers no precise control over image size

The Pixma Pro-1 is a very impressive performer and a stylish looking printer to boot. This 12-ink pigment-based inkjet model is capable of producing rich, detailed and color-accurate prints that are among the finest we've seen from a desktop printer....

Canon PowerShot G review


Intro A modest update to the G5 , the 7-megapixel PowerShot G6 faithfully follows in the footsteps of previous Canon G-series models. With a powerful, enthusiast-oriented feature set and very solid photo quality, it gets most of the same high marks as...

Impressive image quality; built-in neutral-density filter; solid raw-shooting performance.

So-so performance for many operations; inexcusable lens-cap design.

A very good camera that needs a speed bump to pull ahead of the competition.

Compact case

Battery life is below average

The Pro1's compact case makes it a pleasant camera to tote. Its battery life could be better, however.

Canon PowerShot Pro1 Review


Just when we had hoped that manufacturers were moving on from the megapixel race we caught news of Sony's ICX456 eight megapixel CCD sensor which was leaked onto the Internet in June last year. And so at that time it wasn't difficult to predict that we...

Very good resolution, joint best of group Wide angle seven times zoom lens, fast at wide Selectable color space (sRGB / Adobe RGB) Good shot to shot times Good flash performance Time-lapse feature Relatively compact and lightweight Good ergonomics,...

Vignetting / lens shading at maximum aperture Visible noise from ISO 100 upwards Slower than expected startup time Limited latitude of image parameter adjustment No AF assist lamp No live view histogram Lower than advertised continuous shooting speed...

The PowerShot Pro1 is a camera designed to be familiar to current Canon owners, easy enough to use for first time buyers and yet still provide a semiprofessional feel and feature set. Canon has borrowed from its professional lens line to put an L...

Canon PowerShot Pro1


The Canon PowerShot Pro1 represents a big step forward versus the former top of the PowerShot line, the 5MP G5.

Still, the Canon PowerShot Pro1's combination of compact design, excellent ergonomics, relatively easy operation, and supersharp resolution add up to a first-class camera.

Canon PowerShot Pro1


The Pro1 is Canon's new top-of-the-line PowerShot digital camera for 2004. The Pro1 was designed for discerning digital photographers seeking a versatile, high-resolution digital camera that combines shooting options previously found only on digital SLRs

Like the Nikon 8700, the Canon PowerShot is a worthy competitor in the prosumer digicam market. Its features are rich and the image quality excellent. A beginner will get terrific results in automatic mode, while the advanced photographer will be able to

Canon Powershot Pro 1


The Canon Powershot Pro 1 is definitely one of the more compact eight megapixel digital prosumer cameras out in the market in terms of size, but it certainly does not mean it is lacking in features. The camera holds the famed Canon L-series lens,...
