Canon PRO-1 overview

  • 1Description

The Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer is a printer for the working professional photographer. Targeted towards users of DSLR cameras like the Canon EOS 60D, 7D and 1D, the PRO-1 is a welcome addition to Canon's existing printer line. It accepts media from 4.0 x 6.0" to 13 x 19" in size. Roll media is not accepted.

The new print head features 12,288 nozzles, improving upon the 7,680 on the previous model, the PRO 9500 Mk II. This head offers an expanded color gamut and faster print speeds than were previously possible. The inks are housed on the side of the head and delivered via a tubular system. Placement on the side allows the ink tanks to be larger, and at 36 ml, they can hold 157% more ink than the 14 ml tanks of their predecessors, the PRO 9500 and 9500 Mk II.

The PIXMA PRO-1 boasts 12 pigment-based inks / colors from the LUCIA family in 12 channels, including 5 monochrome inks for expanding the color gamut in dark areas: Matte Black, Photo Black, Dark Gray, Gray and Light Gray. In addition to these monochrome colors, the printer offers Cyan, Photo Cyan, Magenta, Photo Magenta, Yellow, Red and the special Chroma Optimizer. This last one provides a clear coat that enhances the uniform glossiness of the paper and also broadens the color gamut. The optimizer enhances black density for truer, richer blacks, as well. This ink system provides smooth gradations, suppressed graininess and an anti-bronzing effect for increased clarity and color fidelity. Enjoy professional-quality grayscale and color prints. There's no swapping of black ink cartridges required, saving time and ink, since you don't need to manually switch cartridges--a lengthy process which often results in ink loss--or wait for the printer to automatically switch between cartridges.

The super-quiet PRO-1 also boasts the capacity for direct CD and DVD printing. ICC profiles are available to ensure that contrast range and color saturation look the same across different paper types. These profiles will provide color-managed workflows and help to ensure that your prints look like the images on your camera's monitor. With ICC's, there's no need to manually adjust channels in Photoshop--the printer and its drivers do the work for you. Canon's ICC profiles load with the included driver. Other manufacturer's profiles, including Moab, ILFORD and Hahnemuhle, are available by downloading the required drivers on the manufacturer's websites.

The PIXMA PRO-1 features 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, a USB 2.0 port, and a PictBridge port that allows you to print directly from your compatible camera.

    Canon PRO-1 reviews

    PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 73.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ink Hog, Noisy Fan I used the printer for about 11 months. The printer is an ink hog. The printer head cycles itself after a dozen prints, which eats up ink. The printer has a fan which is always on. When the ink is charging, the fan noise and ink slurping is loud. Add the cost of replacing inks and buying Canon papers, this printer will cost you a lot. The cheapest part WILL be the printer. Forget about saving for the new car, your replacement ink and paper will be the cost of your new car after a year. I am waiting for the competition to create a new printer so that I can bail out on this printer. Pros - this printer is compact, compared to a refrigerator.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Print Quality I purchased this printer as part of a new digital darkroom setup and I couldn't be happier. Color print quality is outstanding. And I am extremely pleased with the black and white prints. I have had no problem finding the ICC profiles for this printer and papers I want to use. I don't really have a handle yet the cost of ownership in regards to ink costs. However it is great to have the 12 ink cartridges and to not have to change out cartridges based upon color type and print medium as that process always wasted ink during the change-out process. But be forewarned this thing is a beast and certainly stretches the definition of desktop printer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Prints....Awesome Performance I've upgraded from the original Pixma 9500 to the new Pixma Pro-1. Didn't go the Pixma Pro 9500 Mark II route, so you can say I've waited for the next generation of Canon professional printers. i'm totally impressed with the quality and speed of the printer. I've reprinted some very tough compositions on the new Pro-1 and found significant and subtle differences from the 9500. The first review i've ever wrote...proud to say that the new Pixma Pro-1 was worth the wait...I have no regrets. Footprint is large though but my wife has learned to live with it...funny how these adjustment happen.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best printer I've owned! I've been using this printer for a little over a week and so far I am extremely pleased with the results. I have a professional photography studio and for the past three years I've been outsourcing my printing to a lab. I've been very happy with the results I've gotten from the lab, but this printer should save me a lot of $$$ over the long-term. Print quality is fantastic and I was most pleased with the ease of setup. I'm on an iMac (without a CD drive) so I had to download all of the software and drivers from the Canon website. Wasn't too bad but I needed to call Canon once to make sure I was doing everything correctly. Printing from Lightroom was a breeze and letting the printer manage the color gave me fantastic results. Very easy! I would definitely recommend this printer!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding, when calibrated even better This printer produces the most amazing prints of the pixels on the screen. It is not easy to setup as the Easy-Photo Print Pro doesn't get installed by default and that is pretty much required in PS. And -- With a ColorMunki Photo to calibrate your monitors and the output from the printer, what is on the screen is what appears on the printer. Be careful not to think that the prints are too dark. Be assured that your monitor settings have them too bright. And wait for the prints to dry. Sometimes 24 hrs later you can see more detail and color in a photo than when originally printed. This is a true PRO level printer, and can be deceptively easy to setup and print with. Know that adding color calibration through the entire process will only generate better, more accurate prints.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away from this product After reading other reviews here, I decided I was going to be very careful when using this printer in order to save ink. So instead of just starting the printer and use it; I piled all the jobs, and waited until I had some 20 8x10 prints before even turning on. In all I have used this printer twice (I have turned ON the printer twice). I printed 30units 8x10 and 6 (six!!!) 13x19. Now I have a low ink warning and had to order Canon PGI-29 12-Color Ink Cartridge Set... IMO this is unacceptable performance for a printer. I had an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Color Inkjet Printer and ink consumption was related with usage. Canon should have never launch this printer into the market in the first place...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This printer comes with half filled ink Because this printer ships with 50% full ink carts and requires priming because of the tubes from carts to print head you have a one time ink priming but that uses up half of the ink in the cart so you only have 25% of a normal ink cart left in ink carts for first printing. Once you use the original ink carts which were only half full to begin with you will be happy once the replacement carts are installed with the amount of printing from this printer. You will find the Matt Black cart empties first.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what i expected i use this product every day .. and every day i print around 30 11x17 . i use this one for Black and white and fine art printing most of the time .. What's wrong with it? .. the cost per print is very hi.somebody can explain why if i print only black and white i already change the complete set of inks.... twice !!! do some maths $printer+$350 inkset + $350 inkset ..i know it have to clean the heads but it just waste a Lot of ink... a Lot of ink ....a LOT of ink ..Other problem is the paper feed mechanism .. it just doesn't take the paper .. i use fine art papers as i stated before and i usually have problems with other printers not feeding that type of papers but not out of the box .. my canon pro 9500 develop this problem after 6 months and 4 thousand prints it for sure prints very nice, quite and it also looks good and professional on the desk. But plz dont spend that kind of money on a printer that have so many problems !!i also add a picture as a proofp.d. somebody else feels my pain ?
