Excerpt: After 30 years of making inkjet printers Canon has started shipping what may be its best printer ever (under the $1,000 mark), the Pixma PRO9500. In the early 90's the first printers used for digital artwork appeared - costing what a Mercedes S500 would run you nowadays. Back then you were extremely lucky if that expensive print you just had made would last for five years on display.
Canon’s PIXMA Pro9500; How Does Canon’s New Consumer Pigment Ink Photo Printer Perform?
1 November 2001
Excerpt: It has been well over a year since Canon announced the Canon PIXMA Pro9500. In fact, I was so impatient that I requested the opportunity to try out the professional Canon imagePROGRAF iPF5000 17" 12-color ink model (report published in the March 2007 issue of Shutterbug, and now online at www.shutterbug.com).
Excerpt: The Pro9500 is a serious printer for serious photographers. It delivers superb-quality output using its 10-colour inkjet system, which uses pigment-based inks that Canon claims last up to 100 years when used with Canon fine-art papers.
Pros: Superb print quality, Wide carriage (up to 13x19-inch paper), Long-lasting prints
Excerpt: This 10-ink system in this printer uses pigment-based inks, as opposed to the dye-based ones in the Pro 9000. Pigment-based inks are considered the industry standard for commercial output and are also used in Canon's large format printer. Unsurprisingly, three different black inks are used to deliver smooth tones and excellent black & white images.
