Canon's latest A3+ printer goes large on print quality without breaking the bank

Canon is currently on quite a roll with its A3+ photo printers right now, as it's recently released imagePROGRAF PRO-300 A3+ printer is one of the best printers we've ever reviewed. Such quality doesn't come cheap though, so now Canon has released a more affordable option: the PIXMA PRO-200. This latest A3+ offering replaces the PIXMA PRO-100S and appears almost identical to the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 on the outside - both share the same case design and have identical 639 x 379 x 200mm dimensions, though the new Pro-200 is 300g lighter at 14.1kg. This is a clue to the main difference between the two printers: where the PRO-300 uses 10 ink cartridges, the new PRO-200 utilizes 'only' 8, and the type of ink is also different.
