Canon Pixma Pro9500 Mark II Review

5 May 2009
  • Conclusion: A near-$1000 photo printer shouldn't give you much to complain about, and on this score, the Canon Pixma Pro9500 Mark II is a resounding success. Professional photographers will appreciate its flexible media handling and straightforward output control, and hobbyists should find more than enough capabilities in this device's monochrome printing capabilities, especially, to keep them happy for a long time. Sure, we wish the speed was a little better, but everything else ?

  • Summary: We are a little ambivalent about pigment printers. They produce long lasting prints and that is why professionals use them, but dye inks produce slightly sharper, brighter prints. Canon’s excellent Pixma Pro9000 is a dye printer that makes pictures that will last 100 years away from light, humidity and gases. And the 9000 uses eight inks. Tough choice.
  • Pros: The image quality is superb. Black and white prints on glossy paper are like the very best traditional silver prints. Print speed at highest quality is better than on the first Canon pigment printer. We produced some of our best prints ever on this unit.
  • Cons: The high cost of ink ($31 a cartridge) and the large number of ink tanks makes it expensive to run. Add in the cost of the best Canon papers and you need to make sure that every print is a winner.

Canon Pixma Pro 9500 Mk II A3+ Printer Review

31 May 2011
  • Excerpt: is now an established machine so my review is from the point of view of a potential buyer, as a replacement for my existing
  • Pros: This printer produces high quality images on a wide range of different papers, It is quiet and refined in operation, Totally trouble free it has good build quality and exudes reliability, All the cartridges have dedicated print heads so there is no matt to gloss cartridge flushing when changing from matte to gloss papers
  • Cons: No Ethernet connection, Small cartridges means that they deplete quickly, particularly the Grey cartridge, Lack of front LCD panel (whilst not essential it surprised me how much I missed the information supplied by this on both the Epson R3000 and my HP B9180)

Digital Arts
31 March 2010
  • Excerpt: All has been quiet for a while in the world of professional-grade printers for photographers and artists who want to create saleable prints – and designers after accurate proofs. Canon’s new Pixma Pro9500 Mark II is the first new model since its predecessor went head-to-head with HP’s Photosmart Pro B9180 in the summer of 2007 – and lost.
  • Pros: Best output quality on the market; 16-bit output; innovative Ambient Light Correction feature.
  • Cons: Messy software with one tool missing from the box; Ambient Light Correction is Windows-only; pricier than main rival.
