Professional Printing Performance for Large Archival Photos. As a photographer, you take care to capture the best images possible and you want those images to look as good as you remember when you print them. The PIXMA PRO-10 Wireless1 Professional Inkjet Printer makes that possible with features that ensure incredible output. A new 10-color LUCIA pigment ink system features three black inks for amazing monochrome prints, and a Chroma Optimizer to ensure the inks lay smooth on the paper which reduces metamarism and bronzing. Since the Lucia inks are pigment based, your prints will have incredible longevity and phenomenal photo vividness.
Photo.net Review Excerpt
The most difficult aspect of using Canon’s 10-pigment ink printer is getting it out of the box. It’s a heavy printer in a tightly-packed box. At least half of the setup time came from maneuvering the printer from doorstep to printer table. Otherwise, setup is easy, and I will come back to this after looking at the basics.
The Pro-10 is a midrange printer priced at the sweet spot of $699 SRP, although rebates are sometimes available. It uses Canon’s LUCIA pigment ink system, with two black inks and one grey for black and white printing. One of the inks is a Chroma Optimizer for reducing bronzing. There are two paper feeds, one of which is for thicker papers, with paper up to 13’ wide being accepted. Connections for both computer, via USB2, and network, via ethernet and wireless, are provided. A full list of specs can be found here at Canon.
Times have changed for printers, it is truly amazing how easy it is to set up this printer. Take it out of the box, strip off all the tape, drop in the print head, unpack the ten cartridges and put them into the print head, attach the power cord and turn it on. Then it’s time for system configuration. I have no room near my computer, so I set it up in another area. After plugging it in and turning it on, I used my router’s WPS feature to add the printer to my Wi-Fi network. This took all of two minutes and it worked immediately. It doesn’t look like manual setup would take much longer.
