Hello I just got my Pixma Pro-1 and must say it is a BEAST.... I I have a Canon 1DX and when I make prints using this printer, it is UNREAL.... I am using CS6 to print from.


Best printer I ever had or used... ***** five stars

It is a little hard to use and setup, I was using a HP Photosmart 8500 printer that was a good printer easy to use, but nothing like this Canon.

I just got my Pixma Pro-1 today and after getting it set up and printing my first picture all I can say is it is worth every penny. This thing is a beast, takes a solid hour to get set up, but it is worth the wait. If your thinking about this printer do yourself a favor and pull the trigger.

And hour lol I play with mine most of that day when I got mine, it is NOT a easy one to setup, but great once you do..

I have one, prints are amazing. My first set of inks went very very fast!! I am a bit concerned. Any feedback from people that have had theirs up and running for a while?? I know it takes some ink to get it started and all. Mine also sat for about 3 months without printing(moving, work, etc..).
I think I printed about: 6 13x19, 12 8x10"s then it sat for 3 months. Now 9 of the 12 inks are low and need to be replaced.
Question: when the low ink warning comes on do you replace them then or wait till it runs out completely?? When to change the ink?

Does the pro-1 not have large ink tanks? With my epson 3880 ,'Aside from 15% to charge the head initially, I've done 9 16x24 and over 50 8.5x11 (7.66x11 considering the aspect ratio) and I'm down to 50% in only 1 color (LLK)

I would have thought the pro 1 to have more capacity considering the similar price

Got the printer, installed it and updated to the latest drivers and utilities. It works like a champ. Ordered some Moab Slickrock Pearl and Silver to try out the B&W printing.

Thanks, We have a stack of Canon A3 platinum, semi-gloss and luster that we got months ago on the cheap at Amazon. I have not printed on platinum yet with the Pro-1. The luster test print was very good.

Do the drivers still FORCE you to print a tiny image, FORCING a HUGE border, on quality matt paper settings?

While I love my Pixma-Pro 9000 MkII, I HATE that part of it, FORCED borders on quality matt paper settings.
