Alongside the new full frame EOS 6D, Canon unveiled a pair of new printers – the PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100.
These new models are built in the same vein of the flagship PIXMA PRO-1 that was released last fall. The new PRO-10 and PRO-100 feature a new “PRO Mode” that maps color gamut for optimum balance of brightness and saturation.
According to Canon this PRO Mode “helps adjust colors by taking into consideration the characteristics of human perception. The technology helps to create prints that accurately reflect the image as seen on a monitor without needing a high level understanding of color management.” Canon says that this PRO Mode should also be available as a firmware upgrade to the PIXMA PRO-1 in early 2013.
The PIXMA PRO-10 and PIXMA PRO-100 will retail for $699 and $499, respectively, when they hit the market (no word yet on when specifically that will be).
