I’ve been very pleased with the prints I make with my Pro100. I generally use Red River polar paper and some 3rd party inks. Excellent results over and over.

I took an image of a red Christmas ball on some snow yesterday. It looks wonderful on my monitor. But, I was thinking this one may be difficult to reproduce as a print. So, I tried. Although I might tweak the brightness just a pinch, overal I like the result a great deal.

If you’re looking for a great printer up to 13x19, I really recommend the Pro100. Especially when it’s on sale!!

White on white paper is always tough. I've been told that lowering the white point a tad will make for better prints--though I have never tried it. If your white is exactly like the paper, great; otherwise it stands out.

I did make some further adjustments, including adding some additional Brightness in Canon's Printstudio Pro, and tried again .... and I am quite impressed. This is a very difficult image to print ... and, in person, it looks very nice!! The bottom left corner is a bit blown out, but overall it looks like ... snow!!

Couldn't agree with you more about the Pro100. Bought mine on sale a year and a half ago and any bad prints have been my own fault. I too have found lightening is usually needed on white backgrounds. But I haven't used the Polar White from my Red River sample kit yet, so it's good to see such encouraging results.
