PIXMA PRO-1. As dedicated as you are. As Travel Photographer Chris McLennan knows, a huge amount of effort goes into capturing the perfect shot. So when it comes to printing, you need a printer that makes all your hard work, sacrifice and risk worthwhile. The PIXMA PRO-1 is that printer. It’s the first* A3+ printer to utilise five distinctive monochrome inks in a 12-ink system, yielding the truest prints possible. Now from capture to output, you can maintain every nuance and colour with the utmost accuracy and precision.

*As of October 26, 2011.
