Conclusion: Although I have been an avid photographer for years, This is the first time I have ever done color prints on my own. Was having trouble getting decent prints straight out of PS or LR and a Canon Tech lead me through driver updates and Studio Pro install. The results are just stunning and equal or better than prints I've paid a high price for. If you have good color on your calibrated screen, the prints will be just as good.
Summary: pro:outstanding product as per CANON quality. easy set up w/mac. great print on printable cd, photos. would recommend to anyone who needs a versatile printer. LOVE IT!!! con: big and heavy, expensive ink.
Conclusion: After using this printer for a short time and printing some Fantastic prints, I can't say enough about it. I have printed a bunch of 13 X 19 prints and I am blown away by the quality of the final product. The printer is FAST and QUIET. I would recommend this printer to anyone who likes making there own prints to enjoy hanging on the wall.
Excerpt: This Canon Pixma Pro-100 is the best photograph printer I have ever owned. The print quality is much better than I had expected. The color of the photos is very vibrant and the color scheme is flawless. I am a hobbyist photographer and I must admit it is a little pricey, but if you want to do quality printing this is the printer for you.
Summary: Superb prints. When comparing several prints, I could not tell which were from MeridianPro and which came out of this printer. Ink usage is less than I expected (feared). The 8 cartridges seem to economize ink usage. Software alerts avoid ink emergencies. Printer is solid, heavy, closes up to protect itself from dust, seems to be built to survive earthquakes and small children.
