Re: Canon Pixma Pro 100s: ink 1/4 gone after 10 small prints

I don't have a MAC but from the image posted I can tell you that this is not an accurate representation of your true ink levels. For one thing it's displaying all inks at the same level. That is HIGHLY unlikely as the ink colors are used disproportionately in producing images. In my experience the PRO100 is a reasonably economical quality printer.

Red River has an extensive write up on ink usage/cost if you're interested in knowing more from true experts:

Nevertheless, the challenging cost of inks with the PRO100 is the small cartridges.  I used OEM at first then switched to PC inks and after many years of usage I have saved plenty with no complaints or discernable differences.   Photography can be an expensive hobby and I'm not looking to sell anything just for my own use and fun.  The prints don't have to outlive me.

Be well and safe, Dan.
