PIXMA PRO-1: <br class="br_visual" /> the benchmark A3+ professional printer

the benchmark A3+ professional printer

The Canon PIXMA PRO-1 is Canon’s benchmark PIXMA Pro printer – it incorporates a unique 12-ink LUCIA system with an expanded colour gamut and enhanced black density, 1200ppi input resolution (double that of any previous PIXMA Pro printer), and a new Optimum Image Generating (OIG) system for enhanced colour reproduction.

Who is it for?

The PIXMA PRO-1 printer will appeal to both professional and advanced amateur photographers who are looking to produce quality, long-lasting prints. Built to endure heavy usage, with little need for ink tank changes, it delivers superb high-speed, gallery-quality prints for photographers who are serious about exhibiting and selling their images. The PIXMA PRO-1 will also have great appeal to print shops and professional studios. 

Key features

  • Groundbreaking 12-ink system with exceptional colour gamut
  • Chroma Optimizer for uniform glossiness and crisp, sharp blacks
  • Stunning black and white prints with five monochrome inks
  • New LUCIA pigment inks ensure outstanding photo permanence
  • Gallery-quality A3+ prints in approximately two minutes 55 seconds
  • High capacity ink tanks ensure long periods between replacements
  • Wide range of media support including 356mm (14”) wide and thick media
  • Easy-PhotoPrint Pro plug-in for efficient printing workflow

Unique LUCIA 12-ink system

The PIXMA PRO-1 has a 12-ink LUCIA pigment system that delivers an exceptional colour gamut and includes five types of monochrome ink — Gray, Light Gray, Dark Gray, Photo Black and Matte Black — for excellent detail in shadow and highlight areas, smooth tonal gradation and suppressed graininess.  

The Chroma Optimizer ink introduced with the PIXMA PRO-1 offers enhanced black density and uniform glossiness as well as an anti-bronzing effect to ensure that any metallic luster-like iridescence in gray colours, due to colours in reflected light, is considerably reduced. 

The large volume ink tanks in the PIXMA PRO-1 are 2.5x larger than any tanks used in previous PIXMA Pro printers so you get higher productivity and less ink tank changes. The ink tanks are easily accessed on either side of the main printer body via front-opening panels.

A3+ & 14" wide high-speed print capability

The PIXMA PRO-1 allows you to produce saleable prints in sizes ranging from 10x15cm up to A3+ and 14” wide media — this is perfect for producing exhibition prints. In addition to this gallery-quality prints are produced in approximately two minutes and 55 seconds — that’s five minutes faster than those produced from the previous generation PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II printer.

The PRO-1 accepts glossy and art papers, and special media. The rear tray takes up to 20 sheets of photo paper, while the manual feed slot accepts photo paper up to 356mm (14”) wide as well as heavier fine art papers. 

FINE print head and 1200ppi input resolution

The FINE print head of the PIXMA PRO-1 features 12,288 nozzles that deliver virtually grain-free photos. The PIXMA PRO-1 supports 1200ppi input resolution (double in comparison to the resolution of any previous PIXMA Pro printer) to reflect the increasing number of pixels available on professional cameras and to produce smoother prints with high resolutions up to 4800x2400dpi.

Archival inks for image longevity

The inks used by the PIXMA PRO-1 give a light-fastness of approximately 60 years and gas-fastness of approximately 50 years — giving the long-life, fade-resistant prints required to sell your images. Longevity in a photo album is over 200 years.

Colour modes

The PIXMA PRO-1 also features three colour modes — a new Photo Colour print mode, a Linear Tone mode that reproduces colours with linear tone curve, and an ICC Profiles mode so photographers can utilise paper-specific colour profiles or create their own colour profiles. The Photo Colour print mode reproduces fresh blues and greens to match people’s memory of colours.

Ambient Light Correction

The Ambient Light Correction feature (Windows Vista and 7 only) automatically corrects the print colour tones for accurate colour rendition in the lighting conditions under which prints will be displayed.

Network capabilities

The PIXMA PRO-1’s Ethernet enables multiple users at different computers to share a single printer with an Ethernet port.

Software support

The PIXMA PRO-1 comes with Easy-PhotoPrint Pro plug-in software that simplifies printer settings and allows batch printing. Support has been expanded to the full Adobe Photoshop® family, including Lightroom®, as well as to Canon’s Digital Photo Professional (DPP) software. The printer can automatically select the correct ICC profile for each Canon paper, whilst an expanded range of ICC profiles is available to download for Fine Art and glossy papers from well-known manufacturers.

The Colour Management Tool Pro software supports x-rite colour management tools, including Colour Munki Photo and Colour Munki Design, and enables users to create custom ICC profiles to ensure the optimum output quality.

  • LUCIA ink technology

    The next generation 12-ink LUCIA pigment system ensures an exceptionally large colour gamut with expanded black density. The Chroma Optimizer ink offers highly uniform glossiness, due to a smooth and flat surface, and reduced unevenness of the bumps between ink droplets. The five monochrome inks include a Light Gray ink that effectively suppresses the graininess in highlights, whilst the use of a wide range of monochrome inks reproduces smooth, delicate and natural tonal gradations from highlights through to shadows.

  • OIG, FINE print quality and 16 bits per channel

    The PIXMA PRO-1’s Optimum Image Generating (OIG) system analyses the photo colour and precisely calculates the optimum ink combination and volume of ink droplets, which are then accurately placed on the paper by Canon’s FINE print head with 12,288 nozzles. The OIG system enhances colour reproduction, natural tonal gradations and uniform glossiness in each print mode and media type, to produce realistic print quality. Smooth tonal gradations in colour and monochrome prints are achieved through 16-bits per channel printing capability.
