Fine-Art Printers

Canon PIXMA PRO-10


The Canon PIXMA PRO-10 uses the same LUCIA pigment inks as the top-of-the-line PRO-1, but at a fraction of the price. The PRO-10 also prints up to 13×19, but it does so with two fewer inks in smaller cartridges. (The smaller the cartridge, the more frequently it will need to be replaced.) The PRO-10 uses 10 inks, three of which are black and gray for neutral grayscale printing, with a 4-picoliter drop size. The PRO-10 is also wireless-ready, so it can be positioned for printing well beyond your desktop—anywhere your wireless network can reach. Estimated Street Price: $699.

Epson Stylus Photo R2880


Nine inks and 3-picoliter droplets in the Epson Stylus Photo R2880 add up to produce beautiful prints up to 13×19. Like the other Epsons covered here, the R2880 also incorporates Epson’s proven Micro Piezo print head to precisely control the amount of ink applied to the paper at a maximum resolution of 5760×1440 dpi. This printer resolution is a measurement of the number of ink droplets that can be placed horizontally (the first number) and then vertically (the second number) as the print head moves across the page. The higher the resolution, the more drops of ink can be applied to a given area. The more drops of ink, the more seamless the illusion of continuous-tone printing. Estimated Street Price: $599.
