*UPDATE* Pixma Pro 1 Series? [CR1]

*UPDATE* Pixma Pro 1 Series? [CR1]

New Pixmas
A series called “Pixma Pro 1″ printers are apparently to be launched sometime in the next 6 weeks. There may have been something lost in translation on the “series” of printers, it could just be one called Pixma Pro 1.

Features

  • Clean lines in design
  • No LCD screen
  • 12 Cartridges
  • A new type of coating cartridge? I didn’t understand exactly what was meant.
  • Announcement within 6-7 weeks

I’ve been hearing about 12 cartridge printers for a while now, we’ll see. The source is good on this one.

*UPDATE*
There was another printer that was supposed to be announced last spring and never was.

The printer that was supposed to be launched last spring was code named ‘Renoir’ and was basically a 9500 (pigment ink), but it has a unique design.

The ink is in the base, so it doesn’t add weight to the print head. The ink then goes via tubes to the print head. Since the head is not weighted down, the ‘Renoir’ can print at extremely high speed.

No word whether or not this printer or technology will reach market.

Two hints so far
A 12 color Pixma Pro printer looks to be on the immediate horizon. No clue yet on the print size capabilities.

The 2nd hint is a new Rebel and another camera.

I haven’t received any information about new PowerShot cameras yet.
