New Gadget: Canon PIXMA PRO-100

Mother’s day is here, and I can finally talk about the newest arrival in our household: the Canon PIXMA PRO-100.

I’ve been following this printer for some time as a gift to Ana, but the $389 price on most websites was outside our range. Luckily, an update may be coming because Canon has some rebates during May. I bought ours in Adorama for $399 with 13“x19” Photo paper (50 Sheets) and the $250 rebate1. With Adorama’s free shipping and no tax outside NYC, the $149 after rebate price makes it an excellent option from what I’ve researched.

The printer has some excellent reviews online, and pretty good karma from photographers that know their stuff. The Wirecutter — my go-to gadget review blog — recommends it as their Budget Pick.

It’s currently sitting underneath my ingenious wrapping in the living room, but I look forward to reviewing it once we get some real world experience with it.

And don’t forget, call your mom.
