Re: Dye vs Pigment ink

I am going to buy either Canon Pro 200 (Dye) or Canon Pro 300 (Pigment). My decision will be based on the answers to the following (if you can help please?)

1. I will not print on high gloss papers. Does this mean that the main advantage of Dye over Pigment is nullified?

2. I will print on Canon Luster paper. Is there an advantage in using Pigment for Luster ?

3. I will occasionally print black and white both on Canon Luster and Canon Matte papers. Would Pigment be a better choice for this

NB - I will only use Canon OEM ink no matter which printer I buy

review this thread and also the comments for Keith Cooper’s YouTube reviews:


I have done extensive analysis on this, and I have both printers.  Happy to answer any further questions.
