Hands-On Review: the Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Printer

Share

The Canon PIXMA PRO-1 printer is a professional-grade inkjet printer capable of producing gallery-quality prints with special attention given to producing the longest dynamic range possible. It utilizes a unique 12-color LUCIA Pigment Ink System to lengthen the printable color gamut and monochromatic range. Where the PIXMA PRO-1 printer truly excels is how it is able to render shadows with greater detail than is even perceivable to the naked eye, thus giving prints an inherent richness and depth. With its maximum print size of 13 x 19-inch sheets, Ethernet compatibility, and 155% larger ink cartridges, this printer is perfectly suited for the professional workflow or amateur photographers looking to separate themselves from the crowd.
