Canon Australia has announced the release of the PIXMA PRO-200, Canon’s latest professional desktop photo printer.
Although the PRO-200 is the successor of the PIXMA PRO-100, it takes its design cues from Canon’s more advanced imagePROGRAF lineup, and looks indistinguishable from the imagePROGRAF PRO-300, aside from a few small details.
The new A3+ printer features a new eight-color dye ink system, an increase in two cartridges from the PRO-100 and one fewer catridges than the imagePROGRAF PRO-300. Canon says a standard high-quality A3+ (11”x14”) bordered color print can be completed in 90 seconds and the printer now features better media capabilities, with ‘the ability for professional photographers to print on a range of photo paper surfaces and finishes up to 0.6mm thickness in addition to producing panorama size prints and gallery wrap support functions.’
The maximum print resolution is 4800 (horizontal) by 2400 (vertical) dpi and printing is done via 6,144 total nozzles (768 per ink color).
The PRO-200 offers three connection methods: Wi-Fi, ethernet and USB, and has a three-inch LCD display on the front to view settings, ink capacities and navigate through the menu. It measures in at 639mm (25.2”) by 379mm (15”) by 200mm (7.9”) and weighs approximately 14.1kg (32lbs).
