Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Professional Inkjet Printer
Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Professional is a printer for working professional photographers. It is targeted at DSLR camera users like the Canon EOS 60D, 7D, and 1D, the PRO-1 is a welcome addition to the existing Canon printer lines. He received media from sizes 4.0″ x 6.0″ to 13″ x 19″.
The new print head displays 12,288 nozzles, increasing at 7,680 in the previous model, PRO 9500 Mk II. This head offers an expanded color gamut and print speed faster than before. The ink is placed on the side of the head and sent through a tubular system. Placement on the sides allows a larger ink tank, and at 36 ml, they can hold 157% more ink than the 14 ml tank from its predecessor, the PRO 9500 and 9500 Mk II.
PIXMA PRO-1 has 12 pigment-based inks/colors from the LUCIA family on 12 channels, including 5 monochrome inks to expand the color gamut in the dark area: Matte Black, Photo Black, Dark Gray, Gray, and Light Gray. In addition to this monochrome color, the printer offers Cyan, Photo Cyan, Magenta, Photo Magenta, Yellow, Red, and a unique Chroma Optimizer.
This ink system provides smooth gradations, little spots, and anti-bronzing effects to enhance color clarity and fidelity. Enjoy grayscale and professional quality color prints. There is no need to replace black ink cartridges, save time and ink because you do not need to replace cartridges manually – a long process that often causes ink loss – or wait until the printer switches automatically between cartridges.
The super quiet Canon PRO-1 also offers capacity for direct CD and DVD printing. An ICC profile is available to ensure that the contrast range and color saturation look the same on various types of paper. This profile will provide color-managed workflows and help ensure that your prints look like images on your camera monitor.
PIXMA PRO-1 has 10/100 Ethernet connectivity, USB 2.0 port, and PictBridge port that allows you to print directly from a compatible camera.

Great Printer with Extra Features
This is a great printer and added value is that you can print CDs. Just because you buy a great one doesn’t mean you will get what you are looking for. To get the most out of this printer, you need a profile that you monitor and the paper you are using.
Basically, it is a high-end photo processor for homes. Your image is printed in about 30 seconds or less. The color quality is truly extraordinary, although this is more likely to be designed to print high quality black and white. There are 12 ink cartridges included, and it seems to last a long time.
