It's been faithful for several years, but I now need a wireless printer. What do you like for a 13x19 printer. I print 15-20 prints a month. Mostly Landscapes

I mentioned in an earlier thread to consider a canon pigment ink printer.

Before you do watch this link. Very important.

One of the videos in the link Ken53 gave.

That is why a dye based printer was recommended to me instead a pigment printer.

I don't print enough to use a pigment printer. 15-20 prints a month I might get one?

The printer you see in the video is.

Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 17"

Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 17" Professional 0608C002 B&H Photo (

Canon image PROGRAF PRO-300 13"

Both the same a far as pigment ink and cleanings cycles to keep heads from clogging.

Thank You for that specific link Norm. I have been using the discontinued Pro 100 for a few years now. I knew it was incredibly wastfull with the ink consumption. I had not seen the video you linked to. It is an eye opener.

I know this thread has been started in a less then an ideal forum but maybe it will help some that don't view the printer forum.

Thanks again.
