5Absolutely Amazing Printer
By But I'm feeling much better now...
The quality of the prints out of this printer is fantastic. Rich blacks, even grey tones, even color gradations with no banding, fine details, everything I've thrown at this printer it has done well!

I've been looking at pigment printers for a while now. My biggest motivation has been that when visiting galleries and art shows notice is being given to prospective purchasers that the prints have been made with archival pigment inks. My work has risen to that level, and though it may be fine to hang a print on my own wall and reprint it as needed, if somebody is going to pay good money for a print they want it to last. I've sent a lot of work out to be printed, but sometimes the quality has to suffer a bit when I can't crop the print exactly as desired, the brightness and contrast are a little off, or the colors are just not quite what I envisioned, this printer solves all of those problems.

I've spent two full days printing on a variety of media; glossy, lustre, photo rag, and metallic and they all look marvelous. It was very easy to get exactly the looks I wanted with little fiddling as the colors match like I haven't seen before, and I was using custom created profiles for each paper type with my Canon Pro 9000 Mark II. That printer is quite good, but this one blows it away. I've never seen my B&W prints look so good outside of a darkroom, subtle small differences in clouds, for example, come out just perfect, and black is really black.

To the details: It took me about two hours total to set up the printer and start using it. You really need help to lift this monster, it weighs about 60 pounds. I just glanced at the getting started instructions, everything is pretty straight forward, pull off all of the orange tape strips that secure everything, install the twelve ink tanks, and the print head. Turn it on and it primes the head, then just hook up the USB cable and print. I also installed the software that came with the printer, found out later that it is really not necessary, I'm just printing through Photoshop CS6. The driver is much improved from the version I have been using, it now correctly allows you to choose color matching and media types. I'm using OSX Lion by the way. I did try the print software that came with the printer, I can see how it might be useful for those without PS, it allows for a lot of the same options, but will not print from a PSD file, so it has to be saved as a JPEG first. It also has some layout functions that some people may find useful, I tend to just print one print per page. One thing that I haven't had to do yet is to print a clear coat over sections of a print or even over the whole print, there are options to do that, but as hard as I've looked, I can't see any unevenness or bronzing on my prints.

The printer takes about 8 minutes to print a 13"X19" borderless print, 6-1/2 for an 11"X14". Part of that may be the slow USB2 connection, I have yet to try the Ethernet connection. As far as ink usage goes, about 25% of the ink tanks are used to prime the print head. I've printed about 25 4X6, 10 5X7, 10 8X10, 5 11X14, and 5 13X19 prints since then and the ink levels do not seem to have dropped any further. The ink cartridges are unique, they look like an 8-track tape that plug into the front of the printer, with a verification light to tell you the right one is in the right spot. I don't see how you could possibly refill them. When I was printing large quantities of signs and posters I refilled cartridges as a normal course, since I've transitioned to quality over quantity I've just stuck with Canon ink and paper, with the exception of RedRiver metallic paper and Epson Luster paper. I never really got the quality I was looking for with third party ink, too much variance between suppliers and even from batches from the same supplier. (I spent a lot of time creating profiles using Spyder Print.) After I run through some ink tanks I'll update this review to try and express some kind of idea of print cost. One thing I do to mitigate that is to print on 4X6 until I get the brightness and color balance for the environment right, and then go ahead and print bigger sizes.

This is the fourth Canon printer I've owned in the past 10 years. I tried a couple of other brands, but was really put off by inaccurate and finicky paper handling and the awful problem of clogged pint heads. In all fairness, I destroyed 2 of the printers using them in a high volume fashion with cheap ink. The Pro 9000 Mark II I've had for 2-1/2 years now with no problems, and if anything this one is made even better, it is solid throughout.

I can really see this printer improving my work, to the point where I'm now going to be able to confidently sell prints, no longer being at the mercy of print labs in achieving a perfect finished product. Yes, the printer is expensive, too expensive for most people's daily work. However, if you really want prints you can sell, display in galleries and art fairs, and even in local establishments, the expense is more of an investment, well worth the money.

Update 7/4/2012 - I went ahead and switched the printer to an ethernet cable connected to a router. at the same time I also installed the printer on a Win7 computer with no problems. Printing takes significantly longer on my Mac, an 11X14 went up from 6-1/2 minutes to 8-1/2 minutes due to spooling. I also lost access to the printer utility so I can no longer check ink levels, for one thing. Speaking of which, I hadn't used the printer for a couple of days, and when I turned it on it went through an ink readying routine. The level of the Grey, Matte Black, and Chroma Optimizer tanks now read 50% used instead of 25% used as stated above. I now also know why I haven't noticed the need to use clear coat (chroma optimizer), I had it set to AUTO when I installed the printer. There does not seem to be any way to turn it off. I suppose I could make a tiny manual mask in a corner. At $35 a cartridge for clear coat I don't want to be using it if I don't have to.

On the bright side, I was showing off some prints and sold a 13X19 metallic without trying, they really are breathtaking. I guess I'll have to order a set of ink tanks and a bunch of paper and re-print a lot of my old shots.

Update 7/7/2012 - This is downright alarming! After printing about 6 more large prints (11X14 and 13X19) I checked the ink levels this morning and now all of the cartridges show 50%. Ordering ink for sure right now.

Update 9/30/2012 - This is sickening. I haven't used the printer hardly at all since my last update, turned it on and it went through another 'prime' cycle. Now one cartridge is completely empty, 9 others are down to low with warnings, and 2 are at 25%. Just ordered over $400 worth of ink. Basically, the printer ate up over $150 of ink just sitting there looking pretty. If I'm going to continue to use it, I'll have to batch up prints to be made and do them all at once. By the way, contrary to what was mentioned elsewhere, the cartridges that ship with the printer are full cartridges, not 'starter' ones, so that is not the problem.

Update 2/13/13 - It seems that turning the printer on about once a week and printing out a test sheet mitigates the huge sucking up of ink when I leave the printer unused for a while. Of course, I've gone back to using my Pro 9000II dye based printer quite a bit as well. Most of my photography is very vibrant, a lot of HDR, and it just pops a little better with dye based vs. pigment based ink. I've also noticed that few papers have profiles for the Pro-1, although it seems that the standard Canon profiles seem to work fine on a variety of papers.

5Amazing color (and black and white)
By Stephen M. Lerch
This printer is an amazing piece of kit. If you have the money and are debating between this and the Pro 9500 mkII, what you need to decide is how important black and white photography is for you. From the 9500 mkII, you'll get mostly similar results (Canon claims better skin tones from the Pro-1 as well) from all but the black and white. If black and white is what you print most, the question is simple... get the Pro 1. Of course, the extra inks also help with color as well, but the difference will mostly be in the B&W arena. Comparing the prices, you may actually be better off over all to purchase the Pro 1 (based on MSRP)

Setup -

This printer is MASSIVE. Before you buy, ensure you have somewhere to place a 27" x 9.5" x 18.5" printer. And because the paper is rear fed, you will need some extra breathing room in the back of the printer as well.
This printer doesn't just have a large footprint, it's also heavy. Shipping weight is 75 pounds and full loaded, removed from the shipping materials, you're still looking at 68-70 pounds. Ensure the table you set this on will handle it.

In regards to actual configuration, setup is a snap. It just takes a long time, so be prepared to consume an hour or more of time unboxing, installing cartridges and print head and then installing the printer software.
Make sure you have a friend or helper to remove this from the box. It's not too heavy for one person, but the length and overall size makes it difficult for a single person.

Ensure you follow the directions for installing the cartridges. It's pretty simple, but they have some guidelines you will want to follow, such as not touching the contacts and shaking the tanks.

The other piece to be careful with is the print head. They really go out of their way to make sure you know not to bump it, shake it or touch the contacts. They are also very specific about not shaking it or any other jarring type actions. This is understandable since this is where the magic is performed.

Installing the software, which requires a fair amount of space (500-700 MB), takes time but is also fairly simple. Next. Next. Next. Done.

Print Quality -

I can only compare to a Canon Pixma MP990 for quality as it is the only Canon printer I own. Compared to the top end consumer model from 2-3 years ago (2010 model), this printer is much higher quality and even with the same photos and photo paper (Pro Platinum and Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss), the results are much closer, I would say nearly exact, to what I see on my calibrated monitor. I might try to calibrate both printers, though I don't own such a device at this time so I cannot compare them side by side with calibration.

Other Notes -

The other very important thing to remember is that the ink for this printer is quite expensive. For a full set of ink, you are looking at an MSRP of about $330. That might seem over inflated given that a full set for the 9500 runs around $130-$150. So this one is more than double that price. The thing you have to keep in mind is that the $330 MSRP involves 4 extra tanks AND the size on these new cartridges is said to be 150% larger, meaning more prints per cartridge, which means it's probably a little BETTER in pricing for the equivalent Pro 9500 mkII.
The other thing to know is that out of the box, the printer will consumer roughly 25% of the ink for print head priming and printer alignment. There isn't anything you can do to fix this, so if you plan to print a lot, you might want to purchase an extra set, just in case.

Print lab quality prints
Fantastic B&W performance
Out of box color very closely matches calibrated screen

Ink price seems expensive (though not too bad when you consider how much ink you are buying)
Big and heavy (again, you have to know what you are buying)

In conclusion, if you can afford this printer and the ink, I do not believe you will be disappointed. Canon support is nothing short of extremely helpful. I haven't used them on this printer, as I've only had it a week or so, but past experience with them has left me appreciating their support.
Worth the money for those with the need.

UPDATE Nov 5, 2012- I am now at a point that I have to start buying ink tanks for this printer. The problem is, they are running out in 1 to 3 tank increments. This means that I can't print right now because 1 tank is showing empty. I had 3 I needed to order on Friday. I replaced those, to be greeted with needing this one that's out now, which tells me that when this new one shows up, I'l likely need 2-3 more. I think I may just order them all now and say forget it, just so I can get back to printing. These are still the same tanks from the initial printer setup, and according to Canon they won't last long because they prime the printer using this ink. I've gotten probably 30 prints out of it total. Of course, several of those were on 13x19 prints. If I only get 30 prints per tank set, I am definitely getting rid of this printer, despite the amazing results. It would prove way too expensive.

And for the record, I print at least once a week to try and keep the printer from purging ink (supposedly you need to print every once in a while, unlike how on previous printers I sometimes went months without printing).

Will keep everyone updated.

5Incredible Printer!
By Paul M. Provencher
This is the printer I wanted to get when I bought my PIXMA Pro 9000 Mk II. The reason is because it has several shades of gray ink that help to make black and white prints the best they can be. There are 12 inks in this printer. Five shades of black to gray (matte black, photo black, dark grey, grey, light grey); cyan and light cyan; magenta and light magenta; yellow and red; and a Chroma Optimizer.

If you want to print black and white prints, and you're not going to do it the analog way (dark-room), then this in probably the printer you want.

The set-up was so easy that it was simple. I read through the "Getting Started" guide once, followed the directions verbatim, and about an hour later my printer was installed and ready to print. There are several programs that get installed and requires almost 600MB of space on the hard drive. At one time that would be a formidable space requirement, but these days that's half a GB on drives that support 100's of GB.

You can set the printer up to use USB or Ethernet connected to a switch/router. I used USB because I only print from one computer. You simply chose your connection method when you go through the set-up process.

This printer is HUGE - 27" x 9.5" x 18.5" and weighs about 75 pounds. I have a table that I used for my PIXMA Pro 9000 Mark II. Fortunately this printer fits on the table. It is very ergonomic - the ink cartridges are front-loading (you have to have the printer on to open up the covers) - and each ink cartridge has a light to show that the cartridge is correctly inserted. The printer shows you how much ink you have so you can order new ink and avoid running out. But of course you have to order it before you need it!

It prints 13" x 19" inch prints. The prints are incredible. It's like printing from a commercial lab. I know - I used to work in a commercial lab (color and black & white). I like Canon Pro Platinum. Very glossy and very sharp results. I had no problem printing PSD files from PhotoShop. No problem at all. It will take other brands of paper and you can get other drivers to work with other papers. This is a true beast of a printer. I am very happy with this device. No more dark-room printing for me!

The price is way up there, but if you are trying to make professional prints, you will recoup your money (if you charge the right price for prints you make). Canon says prints in albums will last 200 years; prints on the wall will last 70 years. Sounds reasonable - independent testers came up with these results so in my mind it's not marketing hype.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this printer!
