Canon Power Shot Pro 1 hands-on preview

 

The new Canon compact digital camera maybe a flagship but it is compact enough to snuggle in the palm of my hand

One thing Sony retains uniquely is that special version of the CCD sensor chip which incorporates a Bayer filter numbering four colours, adding 'emerald' to the usual red green and blue. The jury remains in a huddle over the benefit of this innovation,...

Canon PowerShot Pro 1

 

The Pro 1 is a class act that's certainly a credible alternative to the similar-priced EOS 350D SLR. Despite its tough build and serious looks, it's surprisingly small, fitting snugly into your hand. It produces balanced images, with good colour and no no

Canon Pixma Pro-1

 

The Pixma Pro-1 is Canon's latest addition to its A3+ (13-inch) pigment ink printer lineup. Intended to sit a category above, rather than replace either the Pixma Pro9000 Mark II or Pro9500 Mark II models, the Pro-1 sets its sights on a more...

Outstanding print quality for color and black and white ; Large capacity ink cartridges ; Three gray ink dilutions for smooth transitions in monochrome output ; Chroma optimizer eliminates gloss differential and reduces bronzing ; Direct support for...

Most expensive A3+ printer on the market ; Large footprint for an A3+ printer ; Accurate shadow detail requires a custom profile ; Reduced printable area on some fine art media ; Print plug-in offers no precise control over image size

The Pixma Pro-1 is a very impressive performer and a stylish looking printer to boot. This 12-ink pigment-based inkjet model is capable of producing rich, detailed and color-accurate prints that are among the finest we've seen from a desktop printer....

Canon PowerShot G review

 

Intro A modest update to the G5 , the 7-megapixel PowerShot G6 faithfully follows in the footsteps of previous Canon G-series models. With a powerful, enthusiast-oriented feature set and very solid photo quality, it gets most of the same high marks as...

Impressive image quality; built-in neutral-density filter; solid raw-shooting performance.

So-so performance for many operations; inexcusable lens-cap design.

A very good camera that needs a speed bump to pull ahead of the competition.

Compact case

Battery life is below average

The Pro1's compact case makes it a pleasant camera to tote. Its battery life could be better, however.
