Lucia Ink System:
The Canon PIXMA Pro-10 Photo Printer features the Canon 10-color Lucia pigment-based
ink system for rich color reproduction. There are three monochrome inks to give you
sharp, deep black density when creating monochrome prints. Since the Lucia inks are
pigment based, your prints will be vivid and long-lasting. The ink tanks are 14ml in
volume. The following inks are included with the printer:
- PGI-72MBK: Matte Black
- PGI-72PBK: Photo Black
- PGI-72GY: Gray
- PGI-72C: Cyan
- PGI-72PC: Photo Cyan
- PGI-72R: Red
- PGI-72M: Magenta
- PGI-72PM: Photo Magenta
- PGI-72Y: Yellow
- PGI-72CO: Chroma Optimizer
Optimum Image Generating System: The Optimum Image Generating
(OIG) System utilizes two major technologies implemented in the PIXMA Pro-10. The
first is a sophisticated mixing balance of inks determined from numerous ink
combinations and advanced analysis. During this analysis, the OIG System carefully
calculates the best results for each print mode and paper type used while looking
at various image factors including color reproduction, tonal gradations, black
density, low graininess, glossiness, anti-bronzing and anti-metamerism. These
critical ink balancing principles are derived from Canon's expertise in imaging
technology, as well as the familiar colors of life that people see and remember
on a daily basis. The second is the balancing of color reproduction, tonal
gradations, and uniform glossiness.
Resolution: Canon's Full-photolithography Inkjet Nozzle
Engineering (FINE) uses a high-performance print head with an amazing 7,680
nozzles, ejecting precise, consistent droplets as small as 4 picoliters. The
result is 4800 x 2400 dpi max resolution for color and black & white prints
producing richer images with improved brilliancy, rivaling that of positive film.
Built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet Connectivity: The Pro-10 has
built-in Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) and an RJ-45 Ethernet port to allow you to place
the printer where it's convenient, especially when there isn't room near your
computer. Multiple users can print from several computers, either wirelessly or
USB Connectivity: The printer has two USB inputs: a Type B
Hi-Speed USB port for connecting your computer to the printer, and a Type A USB
"PictBridge" port for printing directly from a compatible digital camera,
camcorder, or camera phone, without a computer.
Apple AirPrint: The printer is compatible with Apple
AirPrint, which enables you to print photos, email, Web pages, and documents
directly from your Apple device to the printer without installing a driver.
Functionality requires an iPad, iPhone 3GS or later or iPod touch 3rd generation
or later device running iOS 4.2 or later, and an AirPrint-enabled printer
connected to the same network as the iOS device.
PictBridge: You can connect this printer directly to any
PictBridge-compliant digital camera. The PictBridge standard allows you to
connect a PictBridge-compliant digital camera directly to a PictBridge-compliant
printer and make prints, regardless of brand.
Print Sizes: The Pro-10 can make various sizes of bordered
or borderless photos. It can print 4" x 6", 5" x 7", 8"
x 10", 8.5" x 11" (letter), 11" x 14" (legal), 11"
x 17", and 13" x 19" sized photos. It can also print letter and
legal sized documents.
Paper Type: The Pro-10 printer is compatible with many
varieties of Canon photo and fine art paper. In addition, you can use papers
from numerous non-Canon brands. Plain paper, including recycled paper, from 17
lb to 28 lb can be used as well. The Canon paper recommended for the Pro-10
- Photo Paper Pro Platinum (PT-101)
- Photo Paper Plus Glossy II (PP-201)
- Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss (SG-201)
- Photo Paper Plus Luster (LU-101)
- Matte Photo Paper (MP-101)
- Fine Art Photo Rag (FA-PR1)
- Fine Art Museum Etching (FA-ME1)
Dual Paper Path: The Pro-10 has two paper sources. The rear
tray (or "auto sheet feeder") allows you to load up to 150 sheets of
plain paper, up to 20 sheets of photo paper, up to 10 sheets of Letter/8"
x 10" photo paper, or 1 sheet of A3+ photo paper. Single sheets or particularly
thick paper up to 14" x 17" can be fed from the Manual Feeder.
Disc Label Printing: In addition to conventional printing,
the Pro-10 has a tray that allows you to print directly onto the printable
surface of a CD or DVD. You can use standard sized 12 cm or the smaller 8 cm
discs (with supplied adapter). The discs used must be specifically compatible
with inkjet printers. The printable area of the disc excludes the 1 mm area from
the internal and external diameters of the label.
Print Speed: The printer can produce an 8" x 10"
bordered color photo in approximately 3 minutes 35 seconds. An 11'' x 14"
color and grayscale photo can be printed in approximately 5 minutes and 20 seconds.
The USB Hi-Speed interface enables fast data transfers from your computer, reducing
total print time.
Grayscale: This printer allows you to print full-color digital
photos in grayscale. The printer uses black and gray ink for grayscale printing
together with the minimum amount of color ink required. This prevents color
inconsistency in grayscale photos. In addition, you can print grayscale photos
with a cool bluish tint or a warm reddish tint.
Ink Level: You can confirm the ink level using the printer
status monitor, displayed every time you print from your computer. You can also
confirm ink status using the ink lamps on the printer. LEDs above each ink tank
will flash slowly or quickly to indicate whether the ink is low or out.
