At $600, and widers panoramas

Good tip! I see they're charging $600 for it, and say it's in stock. OTOH, the ink is a bit cheaper: $106 for the set of CLI-65s, versus $125 for the set of CLI-42s for the Pro-100.

And the specifications say, "Maximum Paper Size39 Inches" which is a big increase from the Pro-100's maximum of 26.61 inches long. OTOH, the Pro-100 can actually print on 14" wide paper (up to 13.74" printed), but the Pro-200 is down to 13" maximum width.

And B&H is now listing it too (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1602503-REG/canon_4280c002_pixma_pro_200.html), as a "New Item - Coming Soon".

Darn, that would make it a $1000CAD printer... I’ll hang on a bit longer to my pro-100

Saw that for the ink... I wonder what we could estimate the cost per print would be.

My only hope is that B&W is more neutral.  Seems like they have reformulated two inks (black is one of them).

Is there a discount with that email or just product announcement? 600$ it shows for me, that seems to be the normal street price.

Someone commented on the small ink tanks but from what I saw they are equally expensive as the epson’s by the ml for the higher printer.

I have never been happy with the Pro-100 and monochrome after numerous tries and papers. I gave up and love my Pro-10. I'm not upgrading until they offer these at the prices I got my 100 and 10 at ($79 and $149 respectively). I could be waiting a long time!

Just as a side note, I see on Canon’s website that there is one review. He gave it a “2” without even buying it! Don’t you love people like that?

Maybe the same jerk who posted the only review at B&H (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1602503-REG/canon_4280c002_pixma_pro_200.html/reviews), about a printer the reviewer has not had, providing no information that is not otherwise readily available. I flagged it there, but it's still up.

No Big Sur SETUP or Driver for P200

The Pixma Pro 200 is available in Europe, at least in Ireland, I bought one this week.  But beware, there is ... unbelievably ... no driver for Mac OS11 (Big Sur), so I have a pile of plastic and metal weighing at least 20lbs sitting on my desk, quite unusable.   So if you buy this, and are using a Mac, make sure you are running OS10.14 (Catalina) or earlier, back to 10.12.

The (UK) Canon Service Centre did respond to my complaint in a few hours, confirming there is no Big Sur driver or Startup app, and also confirming that they have no news of when they will be released.  Amazing.

Big Sur has been available to developers since last June, so it is really disappointing that Canon could not make sure that the latest Macs can link to this printer.  I have around 50 apps on my Mac, and after upgrading, all of them work fine with Big Sur, even those from small developers.  One would expect a large company like Canon had the resources to do the same.   I've always used HP Printers, never a problem with drivers, I hope this bad start in my switch to Canon does not continue in future.

So beware: if you are using a Mac with the latest OS, I would not recommend buying this until Big Sur drivers are available.

Re: Pixma Pro - 200 available in USA

John,  Thanks for finding that, but I wonder what OS 10.15 is?    There is no OS10.15 for a Mac, Apple went from 10.14 to 11.0.   It's not a trivial change, as OS11.0 runs on the new Apple M1 SoC, as well as on the Intel family.

I did not try the drivers at the link you gave, partly out of caution (I do not feel like experimenting at this stage) but largely because I just heard today from my dealer that Canon Support in Europe has said that the OS11 Big Sur Setup and Driver package will be available on Monday 7th December (or soon after).  We'll see,

Thanks again.

MacOS 10.15 -> Catalina, the direct predecessor to Big Sur

Re: Pixma Pro - 200 available in USA

I did install the Pro-300 without glitch under 11.01

I followed the procedure on an instruction sheet and it downloaded an installation program and then through that a suitable driver. For the 300 it does show the same version for 10.15 and 11. Same is valid for the 200 on the Canon website with the 11 driver linked above. Maybe just let the install program do its thing.

Cheers
