Default Canon's Pixma Pro-1

I have been hearing a lot of different thoughts on the new Canon Pixma Pro-1, but I still have some questions. So far I have been hearing about mostly the design of the printer; how bulky and heavy it is, considering that it only prints at 13" by 19" at the largest dimension.

The 2 articles above are from Canon's DLC blog talking about the set up of this printer from packaging to making your first print. Really nicely explained with pics for each step. Also talks about setting up a network for this printer. But I am still skeptical.



I am still wondering about the actual print quality. Is it really that great as it has been advertised, for the price tag of $1000 or should I consider another printer for cheaper and that might print larger? Any feed back would be great!

Hi,
This is a rather late response to your question, but my feelings on the subject of justifying the purchase of a Canon Pixma Pro1 printer would be based on the type of prints you plan on printing.
If your requirements call for printing mostly black and white on glossy stock, the Pro 1 excels in that dept. Also, the capability of printing on heavy, fine art media.
With the 12 cartridge set that this printer has, the cost to replace cartridge sets might be expensive. Although, the 36ml ink tanks are the largest of any similar printer. So, ink per ml will be less.

Frankly, an Epson 3000 can be bought for $650. It produces exceptional quality prints. Utilizes 27ml cartridges. I would be hard pressed to justify the extra cost of the Pro 1.
YMMV.
Zig
