Canon PRO-1000 Overview

Marked with the distinctive red line normally found on Canon's professional lenses, the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 17" Professional Photographic Inkjet Printer is designed to offer users large-format print sizes with exceptional image quality. This printer leverages the outstanding FINE (Full-Photolithography Inkjet Nozzle Engineering) technology with a 50% larger print head than previous offerings and the 11-color LUCIA PRO pigment-based ink set and Chroma Optimizer to create prints with fine detail and a wide, accurate color gamut. The PRO-1000 also offers the largest print size in the imagePROGRAF line, up to 17" wide, and can print borderless at up to 17 x 22" as well as work with thick 27.6 mil fine art media.

Equipped with the L-COA PRO Image Processing Engine, the PRO-1000 can quickly and accurately determine printing paths and patterns in order to work as quickly and efficiently as possible. This enables bordered 17 x 22" photos to be created in just 4 minutes 10 seconds while a two-way vacuum feeder keeps media flat and quickly, accurately feeds the media. Also, to expand on the capabilities of the LUCIA PRO ink set, it offers four monochrome inks that reduce bronzing, increase black density, and expand dynamic range in the shadows for excellent grayscale prints. Additionally, the Chroma Optimizer cartridge improves color consistency on coated papers and reduces the difference in ink droplet height to ensure a smooth ink layer and less metamerism.

A 3.0" color LCD is available on the front of the unit for easily viewing settings and making adjustments. Also, connectivity is a highlight of this model with USB 2.0, Ethernet, and Wi-Fi options available. Wireless printing furthers the printer's overall capabilities by adding compatibility with Canon's PRINT App and PIXMA Cloud Link. The mobile app is available for iOS and Android devices and allows users to quickly transfer images and files for print as well as monitor the printer's settings. PIXMA Cloud Link provides access to Google Cloud Print for printing documents directly from cloud-based servers.

Canon PRO-1000 Reviews

Frustrating, inflexible,

By TomStone
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-06

I've printed 300(ish) incredibly frustrating art prints. Expect constant paper feeding issues, extremely long processing times and minute after minute of no actions, difficult to use and inflexible software, stopping a print when wifi goes down, feeding one page at a time and more. It wasn't clear from my research before buying, but this printer will only print on certain paper sizes. Averages 7-10 minutes for a 11x17 and has to be constantly attended. Print quality is good, but the overall experience is so low it couldn't make up for it. I would love Canon to take this printer back and return my money, it is a lemon

Love this printer. The prints come out as they should. Matched with my screen. I just made sure I was meticulous setting it up.

Super easy to set up, connect wirelessly, stunning picture quality just comes right out from the Canon Digital Photo Professional 4 with pre-installed ICC. Will try Lightroom later. Also bought the CarePak Plus 4 years (great value, I believe.)

The Pro-1000 is incredible. The first print was stunning and far beyond expectation. I am now an old hand at printing great photos and look forward to printing many more.

Reliable and capable printer

By Lawrence

I've owned this printer for almost one year. I first purchased the Epson P900 which was dead on arrival and had to be returned. The Epson P900 was all cheap plastic including the internals, and just made loud grinding noises rather than prints. The Canon has similar capabilities but is larger, heavier, and has a high build quality similar to the old Epson professional printers. The PRO-1000 is built like a tank, has excellent paper handling, and generates beautiful professional prints. Initially I was turning the printer on and off each time I used it. This power cycle apparently triggers a full cleaning mode, causing the printer to use up the 80ml cartridges very quickly. Now I just leave the printer on all the time. The replacement set of cartridges are still about 75% full after 8 months of moderate use. Maybe that's in the manual and I missed it, but if you get this printer, leave it turned on unless you want to spend $700 on replacement ink cartridges every few months.

Best Printer ever so far

I've owned several inkjet printers over the years, but can't say I've had one more user friendly than this one. As the big brother to the smaller Pro 300, it just makes life much easier and if the reputation of longevity for the print head is true this will be my go to machine for the majority of customer work I create. A roll paper attachment would be nice, but I have other machines to fulfill that purpose. So far I can't see any negative properties for the machine as it is. It just does the job and prints are a bit more brilliant than some other machines have been able to produce.

Fantastic home photo printer

The printer is easy to setup (takes about an hour). Ensure you use canon driver and not Apple driver if using a Mac. The prints are amazing. I also own the canon 100, which also makes great prints. But the canon pro 1000 produces much better prints on matte papers.

Printed beautifully, Failed quickly

By William
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-11-11

I bought this in April 2020, used it lightly, and cared for it like a newborn baby.... always under a dust cover, always plugged into a surge protector / battery backup, and only printed occasionally. The prints were beautiful. Unfortunately, a little over a year after I bought it, it failed (got the 6800 error code, which means a hardware failure that cannot be fixed). Canon would only offer me a small discount to buy a new unit from them. If you are thinking of buying this unit, I recommend you evaluate also buying the CarePak from Canon so you don't get stuck with a large paperweight.

Asked by: Miguel
Because of its weight it will most likely be very expensive. It's packed very well but an overseas shipment might be rougher than domestic. Check with Canon for vendors closer to the delivery point.

Can I also use this printer to print text documents?
Asked by: Curtis
Yes, you can print text documents on normal bond or copy paper, though the ink is expensive enough that if you're going to be doing a lot of that, you'd be better off having a small dedicated document printer, and use this printer for only photos. A full ink set is over $700, it's not cheap to operate.

Epson offers light gray and light light gray inks in their p900. Does Canon offer the same levels of gray in the pro-1000? What is the "photo gray" ink position for? Is it the same shade or lighter than the "gray" ink position?

Both the Epson P900 and Canon Pro1000 have a matte black and photo black as well as 2 shades of grey. The 2 grey shades are very similar.

Asked by: ShengLiang
I've had this printer for some time and have been using it to print a calendar I distribute. As far as I know, it does NOT have a calendar design template. After looking through all sorts of 3rd party choices, I finally did my own. I never saw anything in the included CD (or in other Canon locations) that was appropriate.
