Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Driver

 Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Driver

Canon's Pixma Pro-1 is an A3+ (13-inch) printer that uses pigment ink. The Pro-1 is not meant to take the place of the Pixma Pro9000 Mark II or the Pixma Pro9500 Mark II, but rather to cater to a more discerning and demanding audience. Canon told us, "This is a top-of-the-line product...geared at a 5D or 7D user," during an interview at the printer's introduction.

Given the current state of the fine art inkjet printer market, Canon appears to have concluded that there are factors beyond initial image quality that will determine whether or not they can successfully compete with market leader Epson. The Pro-1 is the most expensive A3+ printer on the market at $999 (£799, €749), therefore it has high expectations to live up to. But that might not be enough on its own. Canon has made alterations to the Pro-1 that prioritize the user's experience and convenience as well as the company's partnership with third-party paper makers in an effort to set it apart from the competition.

Canon PIXMA PRO-1 Driver makes it easy to get ICC paper profiles for the Pro-1 from  and Moab, among others, whereas Epson has focused on promoting its own fine art paper options. Canon's Color Management Tool Pro is available for free on their website for individuals who would rather take the matter into their own hands. If you have an X-Rite spectrophotometer, you may use this program to calibrate your printer and make ICC profiles of the highest possible quality. In addition to smoothly printing on thick, heavy papers like a, the Pro-1 also features a dedicated manual feed slot for even thicker media, making it suitable for use with the machine's standard rear feed tray.

Unpacking the Pro-1 reveals all of these features, but its size and weight are the first things that stand out. With a size and weight not dissimilar to the 17-inch Epson Stylus Pro 3880, it clocks in at slightly over 27 kg (60 pounds). The Pixma Pro-1's high-capacity ink cartridges carry 36ml of ink apiece, making it ideal for the frequent printer. This is a huge improvement over previous Pixma Pro versions and is on par with or even exceeds the capacity of the Epson Stylus Photo R3000. Of course, larger ink cartridges are more convenient because they allow you to print for longer. Also, they are a more economical option, costing typically less than $1 (USD) per milliliter. Pigment ink printers for A3+ can cost as much as US$1.30 per milliliter.
