Canon PRO-300 Reviews

Easy to set up and use

The results of the Pro-300 are beautiful! I belong to a camera club and submit large images for competitions. I'm very happy with the results! The first image I printed won first place.

Easy set up

I live in a remote area so wanted something I could do myself. This was perhaps a bit overkill, but worth it. Set up was easy. The first few prints came out great. Will see how long the ink lasts.... Could get expensive, cuz its fun!

Learning curve is doable by an amature

I upgraded from the Pro-100 after 6 years and enough of the technical style is familiar to make it doable by an 86 year old guy like myself. The prints, so far, justify the measure of improvement bestowed by the latest machine. I especially like the borderless capability.

As to date I have only had this printer almost two weeks. I have printed over thirty pictures which came out of the printer perfect to my eyes. The quality of the printer build is second to none. It is a good solid build and far better than it competitors. The Canon Layout software that comes with the purchase is an excellent program and very user friendly. This printer comes with a full set of inks which is another plus. I am a retired person who shoots vintage racing events, landscapes and grandchildren, I shoot a lot of my grandchildren's sports events a few automotive shoots for clients. So I am not a full time professor photographer.. I have been taking pictures since the 70's when I started with my first SLR film camera .

Great so far.

It has been great so far. Hope it will be at least the equal of its predecessor, a Pro-10 that worked hard for 5 years.

Very good Quality

Excellent Quality Prints, Easy quick assembly and ink install. A bit of a learning curve and a bit Wonky on setup. You'll run low on Black Inks first.

Solid, reliable (so far)

I got this to replace the Epson P700 I bought from B&H last May. The Epson crushed the corner of the paper. Epson quickly sent me another, so I now had a refurbished machine just after I paid full price for a new one. Also, they never sent the rebate. After three months I had another refurb. This lasted until couple of weeks ago when it started to make grinding noises and simply stopped printing. The next two printers failed to recognize the inks, indicating that they were empty when they had ink in them. Finally they sent me a new one (#6) which is sitting still wrapped on my floor. The warranty is not transferable so I am not comfortable selling it and will probably take it to the dump. I got started with 13 Epson printers twenty years ago and put up with expensive ink, paper jams, ink clogs and nozzle tests. I am fairly optimistic that I can get back to printing with the Canon and not wonder every time I start the printer whether or not it will work.

Lab-grade Results

Excellent results from the printer. Setup was straightforward. Its cons include slow printing, non-touch screen, no after-market ink available, and a bit pricey. Overall, the printer does an excellent job, however, the additional cost above a PIXMA Pro 200 may not be worth it. Of note, with limited use thus far, the ink use seems to be quite reasonable, perhaps better than the PIXMA Pro 100 it replaced.

I typically use PhotoShop to print directly to my Canon printers and control parameters, bypassing as much of the Canon written (usually mis-written) software as possible. Is anyone doing that with the PRO-300 and, if so, how is it working?
Asked by: Jeff
I will print about 2000 prints this year with about half printed directly from Photoshop. It works fine other than Photoshop print dialog tends to be slow. The workflow from Photoshop for high volume can be annoying as each has to be printed one at a time. I could offer more advice on workflows and my experience but that goes beyond the scope of this question. Look for a review here shortly.
