" Canon's Katsuichi Shimizu made at the Pro-1 launch.

Today's dye technology, he said, has "a 300 year lifespan, and the fading durability is almost identical to pigment. But in the minds of photographers, a printer must be pigment-based to sell."

In our Pro-1 review we found that the pigment was not as brilliant as the dyes used in the Pro9000 Mark II so we have been anxious to try a Pro dye printer. Even if you have a Pro pigment printer, the Pro-100 might be a worthwhile addition."

What recognized Labs have endorsed or tested for this claim.  Could it be that -- Katsuichi Shimizu -- is a member of the sales and/or Advertisement departments.
