PRO 100 REPLACED PIXMA PRO 9000: 1) WHICH IS BETTER? 2) PRINTING SOFEWARE 3) INKS ARE DIFFERENT

i HAVEA PIXMA 9000, WHICH REPLACEMENT OF PRINT HEAD DID NOT WORK. THE PRINTER I AM TOLD IS NOW OBSOLETE--NO TECH SUPPORT, NOR REPLACEMENT PARTS. I BOUGHT A REFURB PRINT HEAD, WHICH ALSO DID NOT WORK. DONE DEAL?

 

1) CANON TOLD ME PRO-100 REPLACED THE PIXMA PRO 9000. DOES ANYONE KNOW IN WHAT WAY, OTHER THAN WIRELESS, IS THE PRO-100 BETTER?

 

2) THE SOFTWARE CANON GIVES CANON EASY PHOTO PRINT) TO CHOOSE PAPER TYPE/SIZE(S), NUMBER ON A PAGE,WITH THE PIXMA 9000 IS EASY TO USE. IS THERE AN UPGRADED EASY PHOTO PRINT WITH THE PRO-100?

 

3) NOTICE PRO-100 HAS DIFFERENT COLOR INK CARTRIDGES-NO BLUE AS DID THE PIXMA 9000. HOW ARE THE PRINTS DIFFERENT WITH THE PRO-100?

Pro-100 better all around. Improved color, better print longevity.

 

2) THE SOFTWARE CANON GIVES CANON EASY PHOTO PRINT) TO CHOOSE PAPER TYPE/SIZE(S), NUMBER ON A PAGE,WITH THE PIXMA 9000 IS EASY TO USE. IS THERE AN UPGRADED EASY PHOTO PRINT WITH THE PRO-100?

 

Canon offers Easy Photo Print EX and Print Studio Pro which is a plugin for Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Canon Digital Photo Professional (DPP only works with canon cameras).

 

3) NOTICE PRO-100 HAS DIFFERENT COLOR INK CARTRIDGES-NO BLUE AS DID THE PIXMA 9000. HOW ARE THE PRINTS DIFFERENT WITH THE PRO-100?

 

I don't believe Pro9000 had blue ink. It did have red and green which were hardly ever used. Pro-100 has 8 inks -black, cyan, magental, photo cyan, photo magenta, yellow, gray, light gray.

 

Outstanding color prints from the Pro-100.

Printer software and manuals here:

 

https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/support/details/professional-large-format-printers...

 

Be sure to download and install the OnLine Printer manual - valuable, searchable resource.

 

If you have a Canon camera you can go to the support site for that camera and download camera software.

If you are in the US check for rebates on the printer. Should be able to get it for $120 or less, which will include $50 worth of paper.

WILL BUY THE PRO-100

Thank you Mr. Hoffman for your information. I will buy this unit. Just trying to find a decent price. What hurts about this sale, is that I have a perfectly good PRO PIXMA 9000 with no driver for win 10 and the print head needs to be replaced. Refurb print heads did not seem to work when installed. SO, it looks like i have to fork out more money
