Great Printer for the pro photographer

I have owned this printer for just one day and all I have to say is WOW! Phenominal image printing abilities - borderless 13"x19" prints. I was shocked at my first print - it was as good if not better than my professional lab. Beautiful B&W images - especially if you use the grayscale feature... It takes about 5 times longer to print, but well worth the wait. Everything has it's downside... One in particular is Ink Consumption. Not horrible considering that I am printing larger format.

I have owned this printer for just one day and all I have to say is WOW! Phenominal image printing abilities - borderless 13"x19" prints. I was shocked at my first print - it was as good if not better than my professional lab. Beautiful B&W images - especially if you use the grayscale feature... It takes about 5 times longer to print, but well worth the wait. Everything has it's downside... One in particular is Ink Consumption. Not horrible considering that I am printing larger format. I ran about 12 borderless 13x19 prints and nearly toasted all of my Photo Magenta, 1/2 of my Photo Cyan, 2/3 of my yellow, About 1/5 of my cyan and just a dab of every other color. This printer should have large photo color tanks for printing. The thing I could not find out there anywhere was how much cost I was looking at per print. Based on ordering my inks through Adorama I am figuring a approximate cost of 1.8 cents per square inch for the ink. Factor in the cost of Ilford Pearl Photo Paper and you are around 2.4 cents per square inch (including shipping & handling to Ohio). This means that a borderless 13x19 runs about $4.50 to $6.00 per print depending on the image densities, etc. Considering that the average lab cost of a 12x18 pring is about $10 to $14 wholesale - it is not a bad deal. I was paying $6 for 12x12 prints for flush mount albums - I figure about $3.50 to $4.00 from this printer. The only other downside thus far is the ability to handle inkpress canvas. It is a little tricky but I figured it out - make the path as wide as possible and delicately feed it into the printer from the auto feed - not the front feed. All in All - the print quality is awesome. Not much of a shift from the screen image - maybe about 3-4% darker - which can be adjusted by the user. Just buy one of the multipacks of ink and some additional photo ink colors and you should be good to go - probably enough ink in the initial set to run about 13 or 14 prints before replacing one or two of the ink cartridges. Enjoy - this printer is awesome - especially teamed up with an EOS 5D or 40D. Scanned images are great as well.

This product was dead on arrival. Once the printer was plugged in the ink printer holder would not open to insert cartridges. I immediately returned for refund.

Work Horse of a Printer

By

from Evanston, WY  -  Heavy Duty User

My husband and I are serious (hobby gone wild) photographers who shoot circa 30,000 photos a year. Mainly wildlife and scenics. Love this printer, it keeps up with all our demands. We donate photos to charitable organizations and have had no complaints.

Color Your World with A Pixma Pro 9000

By

from Richmond, VA  -  Frequent User

This is a fantastic printer. It you are upgrading to a larger format printer, this is worth considering. It is easy to set up and has been very reliable. I use this printer solely for photo printing, and my Pixma 600 for scanning and copying. Both are connected to my IMac. I downloaded several Ilford paper profiles and the resulting prints are outstanding. I know folks who print on Epsons and they regret not purchasing a Canon. Yes, their prints may last 200 years compared to my 100 years, but I'm not too concerned.

Great Printer!!

By

from Phoenix, Arizona  -  Frequent User

Just got this printer and I can't say enough good things about it! Easy to set up & use. Have printed all sizes of prints all the way from 4X6 to 12X16! The large print was done on museum quality paper and came out beautiful. Can't speak about ink consumption as I haven't done more than a total of 20 prints, but the large one had to use some ink on that paper. Too bad Canon is superseding this unit. I'm glad I bought this one for the price I did!

I use it for large (8x10 to 13x19) photo prints for wall decor....GREAT and a real upgrade from my Epson 2200, which was good...or, so I thought until I got the 9000.

Fine color photo printer

By

from NYC  -  Frequent User

I'm a serious amateur photographer. This printer produces top notch color with fine detail and virtually no banding. For Black & white it is not the best. It is difficult to eliminate "tinting" It is bulky and consumes ink but all in all this is a fine printer and can't be beat for the price.
