We now believe the new 17″ printer will remain in the ImagePROGRAF lineup and not PIXMA.
We’re told that new PIXMA Pro printer(s) will arrive before the end of the year, most likely at PhotoPlus Expo next month in New York City. The flagship of the line, the PIXMA Pro-1 was announced in October 2011, and a year later the PIXMA Pro-10 and PIXMA Pro-100 printers were announced.
Details of the new printer(s) were sketchy, but we’re told that Canon will finally introduce a 17″ printer for the PIXMA line, and we should expect a new ink technology with the printer.
While I appreciated the build quality of the PIXMA Pro-1, it’d be nice if the new printers weren’t made out of iron.
More to come…
