Wouldn't it be nice if someone from Canon would actually weigh in on these questions.

Go to YouTube and search for "jtoolman".  Many good videos on the Pro-100.

Re: how do I calibrate my canon pixma pro 100 to match my monitor

The grey tanks are used all the time.  Doesn't matter what the paper is.  I rarely print B&W and I rarely, to never, print on fine art paper and my grey tanks are depleted just the same.  My favorite paper is Pro Platinum form Canon.  I use it 75% of the time.  The rest is mostly paper from Red River which has a proper profile for each of their papers.

 

If you have a scanner and a printer and a monitor, they all can have different color renditions.  Three different !   I think in your examples that the contrast is off and if it were equaled out, those samples would look pretty good.  There will come a point where you are chasing your tail and it is all the better it can be.  The Pro-100 is a fine printer.  It is capable of outstanding results.  But in the end there is a place where it is as good as it can be.  After all it is a consumer printer, not a lab printer.  In my case I am mostly concerned with skin tones.  When I get them right I am happy.

 

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

"Wouldn't it be nice if someone from Canon ..."

 

Not likely.  This is a public forum.  It has moderators that sometimes tell you to call Canon support.
