With its 12 high-capacity pigment ink cartridges, the Canon PIXMA PRO-1 is hailed as the European Photo Printer 2012-2013. It is known to deliver quality prints at a very low cost. It creates vivid color rendering and highly-detailed prominent black-and-white prints through its five dedicated monochrome inks.

Comprising 50 special interest magazines all over Europe and focusing on photography, video, and audio categories, EISA presented awards to the products that were released in Europe within the past 12 months and were deemed the ideal representative of their product category. Launched in 1982, this year marks the EISA Awards’ 31st year. In total, Canon has been honored with 56 EISA awards in a 27-year time span, including 24 consecutive years in which the company received accolades.

In addition to the EISA awards, the EOS 5D Mark III and PowerShot G1 X were named “Best Video DSLR in 2012” and “Best Expert Compact Camera in 2012” respectively, by the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) in April of this year.
