Alongside the new full frame EOS 6D, Canon unveiled a pair of new printers – the PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100.
These new models are built in the same vein of the flagship PIXMA PRO-1 that was released last fall. The new PRO-10 and PRO-100 feature a new “PRO Mode” that maps color gamut for optimum balance of brightness and saturation.
According to Canon this PRO Mode “helps adjust colors by taking into consideration the characteristics of human perception. The technology helps to create prints that accurately reflect the image as seen on a monitor without needing a high level understanding of color management.” Canon says that this PRO Mode should also be available as a firmware upgrade to the PIXMA PRO-1 in early 2013.
The PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100 will retail for $699 and $499, respectively, when they hit the market (no word yet on when specifically that will be).

Canon Rumors is reporting that it is a lock that Canon will unveil new imagePROGRAF large format printers just prior to Photokina 2012 on September 12. Moreover, the new printers should feature tech borrowed from Canon’s recent PIXMA Pro-1 printer.
Canon recently launched several new photo printers, which include PIXMA Photo All-in-One (MG4220, MG3220, and MG2220) and SELPHY CP900 printers.
The MG4220 and MG3220 are wireless printers, while the MG2220 rounds out the low-cost end as a starter all-in-one printer. They are priced at $130, $80 and $70, respectively.
The SELPHY CP900 is a compact photo printer that can print 4×6 images. It runs $100.
I spent a few hours at the Canon EOS & PIXMA event this evening. The core of the event was promoting the new PIXMA PRO-1 and the fact that it was built in conjunction with the EOS camera system – to take full advantage of what these cameras are capable of. Seeing several of the large prints from the PIXMA PRO-1, it’s clear that this new printer delivers on the quality. The bigger attraction for me, however, was the fact that there were several Canon 1D X’s to put in my hands. [click to continue…]
The Canon event kicks off in about 10 minutes. I’ll have more on this later this evening.
Along with the Canon 1D X, three new PIXMA all-in-one photo printers slipped out of the gate today. The PIXMA MG4120, MG3120 and MG2120 continue the affordable product line occupied by their predecessors at $130, $80 and $70, respectively. [click to continue…]
