The PIXMA PRO-1 Professional Inkjet Printer is the quintessential tool for the professional photographer that gives you the ability to print the images you captured with your Canon EOS Digital SLR, exactly as you envisioned it. The 12 LUCIA pigment ink system expands the color gamut with improved saturation of colors and darker, deeper blacks. This system allows the professional photographer to achieve new levels of skin tone reproduction, accuracy and quality, so your prints exhibit stunning detail. The 12 LUCIA Pigment Inks also assist in reproducing the vibrant colors of life captured by Canon's well respected EOS Digital SLR cameras.
An essential element to the 12 LUCIA pigment ink system is the use of five monochrome inks. These inks, which consist of Photo Black, Matte Black, Dark Gray, Gray, and Light Gray, deliver enhanced, deep black density to raise your level of professional print quality when creating the dramatic expression of grayscale photography. Your printed photographs will also realize smooth tonality and gradations to retain the original vision of your captured image.
Since conventional inks do not inherently sit evenly on paper, bumps are formed between the droplets themselves. The Chroma Optimizer reduces the difference in ink droplet height to form a flat and smooth ink layer. The result is evenly reflected light, deep blacks, and bright, saturated colors.
The new PGI-29 Color LUCIA Pigment Inks are approximately 155% larger than previous Canon PIXMA Pro printer ink tanks, and almost 40% larger than the ink tanks used by select competitors. Larger individual ink tanks means less time is required replacing inks, that way more time can be spent printing, for a more productive and streamlined workflow. To further support a more efficient workspace, the built-in Ethernet port allows multiple users to seamlessly print from several networked computers in any environment.
The Optimum Image Generating (OIG) System utilizes two major technologies implemented in the PIXMA PRO-1. The first is a sophisticated mixing balance of inks determined from numerous ink combinations and advanced analysis, the second is the balancing of color reproduction, tonal gradations, and uniform glossiness. The genius and power of the OIG System is truly showcased when your image is printed, exhibited, and is seen exactly as you envisioned it.
For media support, the PIXMA PRO-1 proudly supports professional photo printing on a variety of Fine Art and Glossy Photo Papers. Its two-way paper feeding provides a rear tray for most supported media types, and a dedicated manual feed in the back of the printer for easy loading of thicker papers. Canon also offers an assortment of specialty photo papers, each with specific characteristics to meet your dynamic photo printing needs. Exactly.
I think it's a good product and it's wireless;and once you connected to your network you are good to good and it was a good price and this was my first wireless printer best ever.
The Canon Pro-1 printer is great. Beautiful prints from the start. Canon delivers quality, as usual.
First, like some other reviews stated, you have to calibrate everything and understand printer profiles to get ANY printer to print correctly. Nothing works "out of the box". And the comments about excessive ink usage, remember that the printer comes with starter ink. These are not full cartridges, plus the printer will suck up half of the cartridge on initial setup and priming of the lines. Once you get past the initial cartridges you will see that this printer performs better than the rest. So with that said, I'm a photographer of 25 years and have used just about every possible ink jet photo printer since the very first ones. I was using the Pixma 9000 and thought that was great. This one blows it away. The prints I get are better than lab quality. My customers love them. Yes, this printer is large and heavy. I didn't have the desk space so I bought a roller cart and just wheel it around when I need it. So it's stored in a corner of my office and wheels over to my desk when I print. So in summary, all my other printers are in the printer graveyard in the garage since my purchasing of this one. It's worth the money and worth the time to get everything calibrated. You won't be disappointed.
This unit is very difficult to set up on on a multi subnet network. Printer and Print Server must be on the same subnet. This limitation was not advertised in the sales information..
The PIXMA PRO-1 is heavy and covers half of my computer desk. The PIXMA PRO-1 so far has eaten the ink cartridges very quickly which is not cost effective. Now, I have to say that I have been printing on 13X19 high glossy paper, so that might have something to do with it. The reasons why I would not recommend this printer is because of the size and the speed of the use of ink. It is also slow at printing, but the clarity of the pictures are of a high quality. Set up was easy and changing the ink was also easy.
Black and white images printed out of this beast is simply astonishing. Be aware! You must have an understanding of "Color Management" and "Printer Profiling" and "Monitor Calibration" to get this or any other "Photo Printer" to produce beautiful images. Once you have these factors setup, what you get out of this printer will blow you away! Well, it blew me away!!! I use Adobe photoshop and lightroom with this printer. Using Photoshop to manage printer settings, the printer produces beautifully printed images when settings are right. If setting are wrong, you will be disappointed in quality. Maybe that is why some people have given this printer low ratings... I Said MAYBE! So, don't hold me to my statement!!! I have an imac with mavericks os installed, and used canon Pro Luster finish, and selected that paper "Canon Pro Luster" printer profile in photoshop and stated that photoshop should handle printer profile, and it produced very close to monitor output. I'm ver satisfied with this product.
I spend much of my time trying to get this thing to work and print as advertised. Very disappointing.
This is in reference to the PIXMA Pro 1. I cannot believe how useless this printer is. When I say useless I do mean unable to use. I was unable to get quality prints from this when it was working but now that I can't even get it to update to the latest firmware and drivers my computer wont even recognize it. This printer just sits there taunting me, reminding me how much I spent for this heap. I had high hopes for this printer but those have all since been squashed. There is next to no useful information online about the PIXMA Pro 1 and this includes the manufacturers own website. This product has been such a waste of time and money I actually spent time writing a review about it.
Very impressed with the results.
Printer does an amazing job printing in color and black and white. I love that it prints up to 13x19
