Photo printers have become a bit of a niche market, with all of the great online solutions out there. However, if you’re like me, you love doing it at home and playing with various papers and that sort of thing.
Canon was scheduled to release a replacement for the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 in late 2020, but it has obviously been delayed due to the pandemic. I have been told that there is a specific part inside a photo printer that is nearly impossible to source at this time, and there’s no timeline on when that issue will be resolved.
The imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 has been around for 6 years, so it’s definitely ready for a refresh. If you can hold out for another 6 months or so, I would wait on buying one.
The replacement for the imagePROGRAF will add two new cartridges, along with a new chroma optimizer tank. The printer will also have the ability to use rolls of paper, which has been a much asked for feature.
I have also been told that there will be another imagePROGRAF printer to slot between the imagePROGRAF Pro-300 and the imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 replacement. I don’t have any more information on what that printer will be.
More to come…
