Overall, the Canon PIXMA Pro-100 is a versatile printer that is more than capable of meeting the needs of the casual amateur or the avid professional. The greatest strength of this printer is the print quality. When printing on the highest quality settings, the print quality is truly remarkable. The colors are brilliant, the pictures have good depth, and the images are crisp and clean. The print speed is not remarkable, but superior print quality more than makes up for the average print speed. For the average user that is more concerned with print quality as opposed to volume, this should not be an issue.
The Pro-100 has a straightforward, simple design which makes the operation of the printer a breeze. While the printer is heavy and bulky, the larger design does allow for prints as large as 13×9. The addition of the Wi-Fi adds to the versatility of the printer, allowing you to print from multiple computers and devices. The PictBridge functionality can also streamline the printing process.
While Canon tried to consolidate all your organizing and editing needs into their My Image Garden program, it was not successful. Pictures printed through their program leave much to be desired, but printing with the new Print Studio Pro plugin for the Pixma Pro-100 makes up for any shortcomings that are found along the way. As long as you are printing on glossy photo paper and best quality you won’t be disappointed.
