Digital Camera World Verdict

There’s no beating dye-based inks for an ultra-smooth finish on glossy photo paper. With eight separate inks under the bonnet, the PIXMA PRO-200 picks up the baton from the preceding PRO-100S model, upping its game with a revamped ink formulation to enhance print quality, a more intuitive interface that adds a 3-inch color screen, and a higher-precision paper transport system. For inkjet photo printing on glossy paper, it reigns supreme.

The Canon PIXMA PRO-200 is the successor to one of the best photo printers ever. Canon’s PIXMA PRO-100S has long been our favorite A3+/13-inch pro-grade printer for creating photo prints on glossy paper. Running on eight dye-based inks, including black, grey and light grey, it delivered sumptuously smooth glossy prints with immaculate color rendition, along with very convincing tonal expression for black & white photographic images. The replacement PRO-200 brings a number of improvements and enhancements, similar to those of the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 pigment-based printer in comparison to the older PIXMA PRO-10S model.
