Canon Pixma Pro 9500 Mark II
30 November 2010
Excerpt: The Canon Pixma Pro 9500 Mark II is a dedicated photo printer that offers professional-looking printing capabilities and is also fast too. It has ten dedicated ink cartridges to allow for economical printing and the best quality possible.
Pros: Professional quality-printing, 13 x 9-inch max. size, Decent text quality
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...
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.
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...
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.

Conclusion: If you have the money to run it, Canon's PIXMA Pro 9500 Mark II A3 photo printer will blow you away with its image quality on both full colour and monochrome content. It produces prints we'd be happy to hang in a gallery.
Pros: Great print quality for both colour and monochrome content, good ink cartridge life, good paper handling and support
Cons: Painful ink replacement and paper consumable costs, slow print speeds, you'll need to choose paper carefully
Excerpt: An on-screen prompt then asks for the ‘OK’ key to be clicked. It’s altogether quite a long process for the benefit of a direct and flat paper feed facility. The front feed is intended to handle heavyweight media and here is where the direct flat method has its benefits, despite the time involved.

Conclusion: While the Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II is as good as it gets for photo printing at home with its excellent quality, it can be a pricey proposition. The printer itself is S$1299 with each ink cartridge at S$24.90 and it runs 10 different inks.
