Canon Australia has announced the PIXMA PRO-200 professional photo desktop printer, a successor to the highly-regarded the PIXMA PRO-100.
The new PIXMA PRO-200 features an expanded range of color reproduction thanks to a new 8-color dye ink system that “enables high-image quality and high-productivity printing of artistic photographs,” Canon Australia says. The new system features newly developed magenta and black inks that “contribute to an expanded color gamut for reds and blues and more faithful reproduction of blacks while also improving black densities.”
The printer also features improved media capabilities, including “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.”
A standard high-grade A3+ bordered color print can be completed in about 1 minute 30 seconds.
Other features and specs of the PIXMA PRO-200 include 3 connectivity methods (Wi-Fi, Ethernet, USB), a 3-inch LCD display, a compact design (footprint of 25.1x15x7.9in/639×379×200mm), a skew correction function (to prevent misalignment), and a maximum print resolution of 4800x2400dpi.
Pricing and availability have yet to be announced by Canon Australia. It’s also unclear if/when the printer will be announced for other international markets, including in North America.
