The PIXMA PRO-10 model replaces the PIXMA Pro9500 MkII model and features a 10-ink pigment-based system with Optimizer Chroma, which makes it become ideal for amateur photographers and semi-professionals to do the job with a variety of media. The PRO-10 boasts a print speed of approximately 3 minutes 35 seconds for A3+ with bordered images, whether black or white.

The Canon PIXMA Pro-10 has a total of 10 ink tanks, three of which are reserved for black and white printing, and one of them is dedicated to chrome optimizer, which helps make shadows and even print photos.

The Pixma Pro-10 features a 10-ink pigment system which Canon says has been improved since the Pro9500 MkII product series, currently including the latest Canon LUCIA ink and the updated color tables. The PRO-10 includes Chroma Optimizer ink inherited from the PIXMA PRO-1. Applied on top of the printer, this clear ink expands color gamut, increasing black density and uniform glossiness for the prints.

As the PIXMA PRO-100, the PRO-10 supports media of sizes up to A3+ and gives support to manual paper tray in the rear with the gradually curved design, making it easier for Fine Art Media up to 14” wide into the printer.

Sample products are compatible with a wide range of ICC profiles. In addition, Canon has introduced a new Photo Paper Pro Luster (LU-101), smooth quality and consistency at the light display, producing the final professional prints.

There are two rear paper supports, one larger and curved for large paper. One front supports for card or printable CD/DVDs using the tray.

The printer uses 14ml ink per cartridge. Replacing a cartridge costs about $132 for a set of 10 genuine Canon cartridges. The cartridge includes 6 colors: magenta, cyan, yellow, red, pink, blue, 3 black colors: dark black, matte black, gray, and Chroma Optimizer.

The printing process

The printing process

Installing the software does not take much time, just about 10-15 minutes to connect to the printer through a wireless network. The main emphasis is on the activities taking more time in the setup process a little, and the guidance seems not easy enough to follow as with other printers. Installation is very easy to implement using the Wi-Fi button quickly on the printer and wireless router; you simply press the button on the router, then press the button on the printer for about three seconds. The Canon software installation process guides you on the screen, and when you are setting up, you can print a test page to make sure it works correctly.

During the installation, you can choose to use either a USB cable, or Ethernet or Wi-Fi. This means that you can set up the printer without a USB cable, although it still comes in the box in case if necessary.

The CD / DVD tray

In front is a paper feed drop down flap; this is where you can also set the CD / DVD tray to print on compatible discs.
