Due for release in November, and designed for photo enthusiasts and professional users who need to print with dye-based inks, the PIXMA PRO-200 replaces the PIXMA PRO-100S. The latest model features a new eight-colour dye ink system with updated magenta and black inks that support an expanded colour gamut for reds and blues and provide more faithful reproduction of blacks while also improving black densities. The new printer is also more efficient, with the ability to print standard high-grade A3+ bordered colour prints in approximately one minute and 30 seconds. It is also more versatile and can print on a range of photo paper surfaces and finishes up to 0.6mm thickness, with panorama size prints and gallery wrap support functions also available.
The PIXMA PRO-200 integrates seamlessly with professional print workflows and is compatible with Canon’s Professional Print & Layout PC software. It also supports various software and application extensions including the Media Configuration Tool PC software utility, and image editing software such as Digital Photo Professional and Adobe Photoshop. three connectivity methods – Wi-Fi, Ethernet and USB – allow it to be used in a wide range of environments including the office or studio, or remote cafes, shared spaces, and home. It will be available from authorised local dealers from mid-November 2020. Pricing will be set at dealers’ discretion. Click here for full details.
