The new styling and features of the PIXMA PRO series has been
designed to meet the demands of every photographer: from
advanced amateurs to top professionals, consistently delivering
the results your images deserve.
The professional’s choice
The PIXMA PRO-1 is the ultimate in professional
quality desktop photo-printing that will inspire
your creativity and give you unrivalled artistic
control over your entire workflow. Setting the
benchmark for A3+ photo printers, its unique
12-ink system - where all inks are available for
use - allows you to produce flawless, archival
prints with outstanding image permanence that
you can sell or exhibit with confidence.
A Chroma Optimizer enhances black density
to deliver striking prints with perfect, smooth
blacks. It also regulates surface reflection,
to ensure uniform glossiness and keep print
colours natural, as well as expand the colour
gamut. The 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.
A super-fast print speed means PIXMA PRO-1
can print a gallery-quality A3+ photo in less
than 3 minutes to increase your productivity
as well as your profits. Versatile media support
for up to 14" wide paper, including an expanded
range of ICC profiles for well-known Fine Art
papers, means you can use whichever one is
right for your artistic vision. Ambient Light
Correction automatically corrects the print colour
tones for optimum viewing under various
lighting conditions.
With Ethernet connection, the unrivalled
capabilities of your PIXMA PRO-1 can be
accessed by multiple computers and users. With
great hardware durability you can be sure your
creativity and your business are in safe hands.
