I've just heard* that a PRO-200 is being sent out for one of my reviews.


If anyone has any specific questions, please do let me know?

IMO the most interesting question is how the supposedly-new black and magenta inks really compare. Supposedly compared to the longstanding ChromaLife 100+ inks in the Pro-100 and many other printers, the black ink produces darker blacks and the magenta expands the gamut. Can either or both of those be detected visually?

This I can't directly answer - it was years ago I last had such a printer here to look at

With measurements associated with profiling or otherwise? Is the new black equally neutral, more so, less so? If you want, I would print you Pro-100 test / comparison prints on (U.S.) standard letter-size (8.5x11 in) Canon papers and mail them to you (PM me if interested).

A good suggestion - I'll let you know - this partly depends on what papers I get and what you've got.

Of course, another question is whether / how these new inks affect fade resistance. But that's more Mark McCormick's area.

Ah yes - something my patience (or that of the house management) doesn't run to testing

Another question is whether there area any print quality or head-strike issues with printing on stiff and thick 'art' papers nearer the top and bottom than the 30mm that the Pro-100 allows.

Paper handling is one of the biggest improvements in the pro-300, I'm expecting similar in the 200.

The old 100 paper margin limitations were to me a massive fail - I'll need to have a good read of my 2014 review though.
