Canon brings 3 A3 photo printers to India, targets professionals

Mumbai, January 19, 2013 Imaging leaders Canon have  launched   three  inkjet photo printers in the A3 size, targeting mainly professional printers.

All three printers are network ready, thereby allowing access to multiple users, and can be stationed at any part of the house or studio. The PIXMA PRO 10 and Pro 100 models also boast WiFi connectivity. The PRO series  includes a new two-way paper feeder at the rear, including a dedicated feed slot for users to manually feed up to 14 x 17” paper and thick paper. An Ethernet port allows multiple users at different computers to use PIXMA PRO-1 over a wired network. PIXMA PRO-1 and PRO-10 also feature Chroma Optimizer. The Chroma Optimizer is added as a layer over the inks to create a more uniform level of glossiness and regulate surface reflections. In addition, Chroma Optimizer can also enhance the density in darker colors, for deeper blacks with more gradations.

The PIXMA Pro 1 uses 12 different colored ink tanks, which not only expands its color gamut but also stabilizes its print colors to provide consistent and uniform prints. These 12 ink tanks also include 5 monochrome inks for superior black and white prints with smoother gradations and suppressed graininess. Canon has also outfitted PIXMA PRO-1 with large-volume 36 ml ink tanks. The FINE technology used in PRO 1 ensures rapid printing speeds and can print an A3 bordered full colour photograph in 4.20 mins. Rs. 94,860

The PIXMA PRO-10 uses a 10-color ink system to achieve smooth tonal gradations and colors to meet the exacting standards of professional photographers. It is for customers who are devoted to rich photos with subdued colors like fashion photographers. The combination of the Chroma Optimizer and three different monochromatic inks – Photo Black, Matte Black and Gray - not only improves tonal gradations in monochrome prints, but also increases the accuracy of color reproduction for darker colors.  Rs. 65,995

The PIXMA PRO-100 uses an 8-color dye ink system for richer colors and high gloss, including three monochromatic inks – Black, Gray, and Light Gray – for superior reproduction in the darker color range. This allows the PRO-100 to produce more accurate dark colors, as well as smoother tonal gradation and reduced highlight grain in black and white prints.  Rs. 47,995
