Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II


$850.00 Released March, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Excellent for smaller professional printing applications - using suitable paper types and ICC-level profiles provides clear, vivid text and imagery. 35mm border imposed on all Fine Art Photo Rag prints ensures optimal quality - guarantees flatness amongst rollers and speed amongst printheads. Color adjustment options are very advanced - wide selection of profiles and settings allows users to optimize color balance based on the amount of light a print will be viewed under.

The Cons:Difficult for some users to find an idea paper/profile combination - experienced, professional-level printing applications may be better suited to Epson or Lexmark models. Not recommended for common, day-to-day printing needs - unit is intended to function as a professional/prosumer-grade printer. Ink heads may eventually clog to the point of total unit malfunction - many users report a ~2-year lifespan with regular use.

The Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II is a high end inkjet photo printer for professional and advanced photographers, capable of creating gallery-quality images for exhibition and sale. It uses a 10-colour pigment based single ink system as standard, including matte black and photo black, allowing photographers to print on gloss and matte media without the need for swapping ink tanks.
