The new PIXMA PRO-100 and PIXMA PRO-10 both feature Canon's stylish EOS-inspired design, individual inks and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The PIXMA PRO-100 replaces the PIXMA Pro9000 MkII and boasts an 8-ink dye-based system for creating stunning colour and monochrome photographs at home. Outstanding quality prints can be produced quickly, with print speeds of approx. 90 seconds for an A3 bordered colour photo, across a wide range of media.

The PIXMA PRO-10 replaces the PIXMA Pro9500 MkII and features a 10-ink pigment-based system with Chroma Optimizer, making it ideal for semi-professional and serious amateur photographers looking to work with a wide range of media. The PRO-10 boasts print speeds of approx. 3 minutes 35 seconds for A3 bordered images, whether colour or black and white.

Print gallery-quality professional photos at home
With Canon's individual inks for the PIXMA PRO range, it's possible to print beautiful, high quality prints at home. The PIXMA PRO-100's 8-ink dye-based system, which features three monochrome inks black, grey and light grey, enhances the quality of mono prints and improves print speeds for black and white photos. In addition, Canon's ChromaLife100 system expands colour reproduction and improves photo permanence, for studio-quality photos that last.

The 10-ink pigment system in the PIXMA PRO-10 has been improved since the Pro9500 MkII to feature Canon's latest LUCIA inks and an updated colour set. The PRO-10 now includes Chroma Optimizer ink inherited from the award-winning PIXMA PRO-1. Applied on top of prints, this clear ink expands colour gamut, increases black density and gives uniform glossiness for prints that can be sold or exhibited with confidence.

Both the PIXMA PRO-100 and PRO-10 support media sizes up to A3 and feature a new manual rear paper-feed path with gradual curve design, making it easier and faster to feed Fine Art Media up to 14 wide into the printer. The new models are also compatible with an extensive range of ICC profiles, making it easy to print on the perfect paper to suit any artistic need. In addition, Canon has expanded its range of photo papers to include new Photo Paper Pro Luster LU-101, which is ideal for studio and professional photos and features a smooth texture and consistent look under display lighting, for a truly professional finish.

Professional printing made easy
New plug-in software from Canon helps to enhance images with a range of photo editing options. The new Print Studio Pro software replaces Easy-Photo Print Pro to provide seamless photo printing from Canon's Digital Photo Professional, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop Elementsiv. A new, simple user interface comes with photo editing applications and new features, such as improved layout and customised text options, for greater flexibility around the look and feel of final prints.

Canon's new PRO Mode printer driver colour profile helps to ensure that the printed colours accurately match those shown on the screen. Additionally, you can install and use ICC profiles for your chosen media.

Easy connectivity
Both the PIXMA PRO-100 and PRO-10 benefit from a range of connectivity options. Featuring Wi-Fi and Ethernet connection, the printers can be shared across multiple PCs and provide the option to print over a wireless network. For quick composition proofing, you can print photos from compatible tablets or smartphones.

Availability
The PIXMA PRO-100 and PIXMA PRO-10 are available across Europe, Middle East & Africa from November 2012.
