New Canon A3+ Professional Photo Printers To Produce Photographic Images with Stunning Quality
The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 allow users to create unprecedented colour and mono prints
HONG KONG, 2 February 2021 – Canon introduces the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 professional A3+ photo printers for professional photographers and photo enthusiasts to produce high-quality prints. Supporting a wide variety of media types and sizes, the new printers also support the new Canon Premium Fine Art Rough media for exhibition-ready prints to achieve heightened levels of depth and colour expression that are beyond the limits of ordinary home printers.
Advanced Processor and Ink Systems for Improved Photo Expression
The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 is powered by the Canon L-COA PRO processor, designed to process large volumes of image data and print at high speeds.
Paired with a new LUCIA PRO 10-ink system within the imagePROGRAF PRO-300, the printer gains the ability to achieve an expanded colour gamut on a variety of glossy and matte media. The matte black ink specifically increases black density for non-glossy media, and enables a wider monochromatic range in dark zones.
With dedicated ink nozzles for Matte Black and Photo Black, the PRO-300 allows users to switch from matte to glossy media easily across multiple print jobs, with no swapping of black inks nozzles required. It can reduce the initial time for printing in different media dramatically.
The PIXMA PRO-200 uses an 8-ink configuration that is designed to deliver an expanded colour reproduction, with improved black density over previous generations.
Class-leading Printing Innovations and Enhancements
The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 features a footprint 15% smaller than previous incarnations in the Canon PIXMA PRO-10 and PRO-100. The addition of the 3-inch colour LCD screen also enhances usability, making it easy to perform setup and manage settings, replace ink cartridges, as well as monitor remaining ink levels.
To ensure accurate feeding, especially for large and thick papers, a new Auto Skew Correction feature on both printers detects alignment and adjusts feeding during printing without manual intervention.
The PRO-300 is also equipped with an automatic nozzle compensation feature. By detecting non-firing of ink nozzles in-printing and redeploying surrounding nozzles, the printer is able to eliminate streaks and banding in photos.
Compatibility with New Canon Premium Fine Art Rough and Other Media
Canon has also released a new Premium Fine Art Rough (FA-RG1) media, designed to push the limits of photographic and artistic expression on the PRO-300 and PRO-200. This heavy, high quality cotton paper with rough surface finishing allows expressing the depth of image effectively. It is particularly suited for printing artistic themed image and fine art reproduction.
Seamless Workflow with Bundled Software Applications
To assure a seamless integration with professional print workflows, and in particular Canon EOS system cameras, the PRO-300 and PRO-200 are bundled with the Canon Professional Print & Layout (PPL) software. This powerful program provides an intuitive interface, making it easy for users to optimize layout and colour settings for single or multiple print jobs, ensuring a superior user experience beginning from image capture, to post-editing, and eventually the print result.
Together with Canon’s Media Configuration Tool, imaging professionals can also manage colour profiles for Canon and third party media with ease, ensuring the re-use of custom settings for similar print jobs quickly.
