There is note that Photoshop does not do 16 bit , they say it is 15 bit +1

That has zero to do with whether Canon's Pro 1000 can print anything higher than 8 bits.

I am sure the Canon XPS driver is rendering greater than 8 bit , possibly more like the 12 that their cameras produce.

Really? I'm curious why you are "sure?"  I thought they did too since they claimed to do so. Then I actually tested it and discovered it only printed to the driver in 8 bits. I found that rather annoying.

I described how I tested it? How did you test it?

BTW, RGB numbers like 254.25 (referred to 8 bit 0:255) require only 10 bits of accuracy so the 15+1 limit of Photoshop does not apply.
