The Canon PIXMA PRO-1 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.
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
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
