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.

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 ?

Comments about Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer:

I have owned it for 1 year now, prints are excellent but be aware the printer will consume at least $400-600 per year in ink on what I assume is head cleaning. I am a school photographer, I only use the printer for missed from the lab or late orders.

    This printer way surpasses any. My portraits invite touching the flesh in the faces of the models. Great color too, but I wanted a good black and white print. Carl at B&H was so right. This is a magnificent printer. I love the automatic smooth controls of the machine, as well. Spend your time making photos, not the machine prints just like the dusky prints made in the darkroom.

    Comments about Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer:

    There are plenty of technical reviews, let's skip that...
    This is a printer for you if you want to do high-quality pro level print work. If you are looking to do invites for a single wedding, this might be a bit overboard. If you are a pro or pro-sumer, this is what you want.

    Once you learn the optimal settings for your uses, this printer can take an image and output something suitable for framing and hanging in a gallery or sales floor. It can print faster than I can frame.

        Comments about Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer:

        I purchased this printer brand new. I carefully followed the manual during setup. After installing the print head and before the printer started priming the tubes to the head I got an error light flashing. The manual instructs to check the print head is secured properly if there are problems at this stage. Unfortunately the print head has now retracted under the top panel of the printer and is not accessible. My calls to the canon service centre were a complete waste of time. Even after carefully explaining the problem the representative just kept forwarding me email links to the manual and drivers. I am now stuck with a completely useless huge piece of junk. I'd throw it out the window, if it wasn't so heavy...

          Comments about Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer:

          Spending this much for a photo printer, for photography as a hobby, may seem extravagant. But when you consider the manufacturer rebate, 50 sheets of 13x19 paper, and no sales tax from out of state online purchase, it's a bargain!
          Definitely will use B&H for my future purchases.

          This printer prints fantastic. I read other reviews stating that it used so much ink, and I would disagree. We used it for an event at my work and printed out 5 x 7 prints and did a TON...the inks aren't even 1/2 depleted.

            This is a very high quality printer, no question. For me the only short-coming is that they didn't make it a slightly wider format. The high end Epson Printers are now 17" wide rather than 13" and this printer does not accept rolls if you are into panos.

              Comments about Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Network Professional Inkjet Photo Printer:

              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!

              WE use this as a photo printer for our art photography and solar etching images. This printer produces true blacks across the entire zone. The only issue is the rate of consumption of the inks and the cost to replace. But, you get what you pay for. And this unit is worth every cent.

              Replacing my Canon 9000 II, not due to wearing out, but I needed better quality black and white prints. I have not been disappointed. Most reviews comment on the size, but I'll take it with the quality of these prints. Color is dynamic, black and white is clean without any kind of color cast to it. Set up took a while, but it wasn't difficult. Prints take a while, but it is worth the wait. Love this printer and would HIGHLY recommend it.
