It's been a long time since Canon revved its dedicated photo-printing products, the Pro9000 Mark II and Pro9500 Mark II. Now updated to follow the same design as the higher-end Pixma Pro-1 released almost a year ago, the 13x19 Pro-10 and Pro-100 add Wi-Fi/AirPrint and Ethernet connectivity and a new plug-in for Lightroom and Photoshop to help with page layout.

The $699 Pro-10 uses the Lucia pigment inks, supplemented with the same Chroma Optimizer as the Pro-1 to minimize gloss differential and bronzing of black inks when printing on glossy stock. Canon reformulated the yellow ink and claims increased coverage in the red/magenta/yellow area of its color gamut.

For dye fans, the $499 Pixma Pro-100 uses a reconfigured ChromaLife 100+ ink set, dropping the red and green primaries to add gray and light gray, plus incorporating a reformulated magenta that Canon says delivers better reds for improved black and shadow reproduction.

Both printers have gotten speed boosts and the drivers ship with a new Pro mode designed to deliver more accurate automated color matching. They're scheduled to ship in late October.
