Digit news - Canon launches ‘Pro’ A3+ photo printers

Canon has launced two new printers the Pixma Pro9500 and Pro9000, both A3+ output and the 9500 supporting 10 inks and the 9000 8 inks.

They say they are suitable for printing saleable art straight from the printer.

They come with plug-ins for Photoshop CS and CS2 which allow for colour management.

The Pro9500 will retail for £550 +VAT and the 9000 for £425 +VAT, unfortunately they wont be available until the autumn of 2006.

10 inks might sound excessive, but the more colours available actually reduce the ink usage (on a per ink basis) and they generally work out more efficient than lesser numbers.

Though generic photo printers, they seem to be designed to work with Canon's EOS range of cameras, allowing decent photo printing.
