Canon Pixma Pro-1

  • Summary: 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 initial tanks that ship with the printer; replacement tanks last much longer. Experts find no fault with the Canon Pro-1's ink use or reliability.
  • Pros: 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
  • Cons: Tweaks needed to get best B&W matte prints

Canon Pixma Pro-1 review

  • Conclusion: Given its size and heft, and the fact that this is the top model in the Pixma Pro line, it’s surprising that Canon decided to limit the Pro-1’s media handling capabilities to 13 inches. But other than that, our only complaint is the weight. Even that isn’t much of a complaint, since pretty much all wide-format photo printers tend to be on the hefty side, so it’s somewhat unfair to ding it for that.
  • Pros: 12 colors of inks produce excellent output quality, Wide-format, Five black inks can generate excellent monochrome prints
  • Cons: Large, heavy, and pricey (if we must complain), Limited to 13-inch media.

  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: Magnificent photo quality. Especially good for monochrome photos. Above-par graphics and text. Higher-capacity ink tanks than its rivals.
  • Cons: Relatively slow. Large and heavy. Pricey for an A3+ printer. Can't print from paper rolls.

  • Conclusion: 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. Black and white output is equally impressive, with the printer utilizing 5 shades of black ink when printing on glossy media.
  • Pros: 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 third party papers, High build quality, Fast print speeds at maximum quality, Relatively quiet operation, Printer driver integration with Photoshop reduces chances of user error, Impressive profiling software included, Etherne...
  • Cons: 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

  • Excerpt: 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 due to the new 12 ink system that uses significantly larger cartridges (36ml vs the 9500's 12ml).

  • Excerpt: In the field of A3+ inkjet printers it would seem the bar has already been set to a remarkable height, but now along comes the Canon PIXMA PRO-1 and the bar goes up again. What’s more, it goes up by more than just a notch or two. Canon’s new flagship A3+ printer is similar in styling to the previous PIXMA 9500 Mark II model, but is slightly larger and considerably heavier.
