Photo printer review: Canon Pro-100 is to dye for

Conventional wisdom is that you need a pigment printer to convince customers your prints are permanent. Wiser souls, though, know nothing is permanent. And wise guys are quick to point out that the trick is to have the prints outlive you.

For a long time dye prints have been capable of that. And they've extended their longevity while pigment prints have been scratching their print heads trying to figure out how to look as brilliant as a dye print. So we were pretty excited to learn Canon had introduce a pigment printer in its new Pro line. And after reviewing it, we're still excited. See why!

(After we catch our breath, we'll unbox the Pro-10 affordable pigment printer that arrived for review at the same time as the Pro-100. Meanwhile, we've put up the basic specifications with our review of Canon's Print Studio Pro plug-in to amuse you.)
