The new Canon PIXMA PRO-1 is a 13x19” pigment-ink printer that makes fine quality prints in a price range that could be considered quite fair for what you get ($999). Aimed at avid photographers and enthusiast printmakers, as well as pros choosing to do their own mid-size prints, the PIXMA PRO-1 fills a void left by HP’s abandonment of the category and directly challenges Epson. The printer offers ease of use, solid performance, 12 ink cartridges, and all in all seems to improve upon 13” printers of the past. Our tests were aimed at determining if the PIXMA PRO-1 could be a solid contender in its class and if there were upgrades or new workflow techniques that would differentiate it from the competition.

In the report on the Canon PowerShot G11 (April, 2010, available at www.shutterbug.com) I concluded by saying that it was “an excellent traveling companion.” Ditto on the new G12 ($499, MSRP), the latest iteration of the Canon “G” line of integral lens cameras aimed at the photo enthusiast. In fact, you could ditto many of the form, function, and features of the G12 with the G11, so I will not...

It's getting to the point where cameras are truly microprocessors with lenses. For those who have shot film in the past, today's digital SLRs give access to the look and feel of every film ever made at every speed with every color, contrast, and grain nuance you could imagine. While film builders create a combination of image attributes fixed in a micro-thin emulsion...

Like cameras in cell phones (and vice versa) and MP3 players in everything, the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II can be thought of as another item in the multimedia trend.

The compact digital SLR category has seen quite a few entrants of late, all vying for the hearts and minds, and dollars, of those moving up from point-and-shoot digicams or from their film SLR cousins. While those already in possession of compatible glass from their film SLR cameras are usually swayed one way or the other in their purchase, there are those who have no investment...

While the Rebel appellation hints at amateur status, the $799 price of the Canon T1i (body only; $899 with kit lens, suggested retail) seems to put it in a bit higher (price) class.

Dubbed an “entry-level” D-SLR, the new Canon EOS Rebel XS is bound to be found under a number of Christmas trees this year, what with its $699 retail price and included EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. This kit lens is Optical Image Stabilized and adds to the allure of a camera with Live View, dust cleaning with Canon’s “Integrated Cleaning System,” and a (effective)...
