    Although it is my profession, I have a love hate relationship with printers. I've spent too much time trying to make the perfect proof that when I come home at night, the last thing I want to think about is printing images, but it can't be avoided.

    I'm very curious about the last batch of pro Canon printers, My local camera store has the Canon Pixma Pro 1 for 699.99 which is the same prices as the (newer but supposedly lessor) Pixma Pro-10. There is also a Pixma Pro - 100 which is even less.

    Is there any advantage of getting the slightly older Pro-1? I know the dye based vs. pigment based inks vary as do printing times and one is supposedly better at black and white.

    Does anyone have any first hand recommendations or advice?

    Thanks!

    With luck, B&H posted a video seminar about this very subject, I'm watching it now.
