    SINGAPORE, 30 November 2020 — Canon introduces the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 professional A3 photo printers for graphic artists and professional photographers 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.

    Edwin Teoh, Head of Marketing, Singapore Operations, Canon Singapore said: “Capturing images is just half of the equation for professional photographers and enthusiasts, with the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 completing the equation by materialising high-quality photo prints with outstanding colour accuracy. With the flexibility of additional paper sizes, users will now be able to print stunning panoramas with long paper prints. For the discerning professional photographer or enthusiast, the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 will meet their exacting standards.”

    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.

    Housing a new LUCIA PRO 10-ink system, the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 is now able to reproduce an expanded range of colours on a variety of glossy and matte media. The pigment ink used by the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 ensures that prints last for a long time without fading.

    The new matte black ink also produces enhanced black density in prints and better contrast between light and dark areas within the prints. With dedicated ink nozzles for Matte Black and Photo Black, the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 allows users to switch from matte to glossy media easily across multiple print jobs, with no swapping of black inks required. The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 also comes with a Chroma Optimiser, which is automatically applied to inked areas when printing on glossy or semi-gloss paper for a smoother finish, to create images with deep black density.

    The PIXMA PRO-200 uses a new 8-colour dye ink system to offer an improved colour reproduction, especially in the magenta, red and blue areas within prints. The dye inks result in colours that are deeper and more vivid while the new high-density black ink produces sharper photo prints.

    Class-leading Printing Innovations and Enhancements
    Both the imagePROGRAF PRO-300 and PIXMA PRO-200 feature a footprint that is 15% smaller than their predecessors, the Canon PIXMA PRO-10 and PRO-100 respectively. The addition of a 3-inch colour LCD screen on both printers also enhances usability, making it easy to monitor remaining ink levels as well as perform setup and manage settings without having to use a computer. Users can even purchase replacement ink cartridges through a QR code that is displayed on the LCD screen.

    A new Auto Skew Correction feature on both printers uses a built-in mechanism to ensure that the paper being fed into the printer is always aligned and that there are no printing errors. All this is automated, with the feature working with all types of paper, including thick and large papers.

    The imagePROGRAF PRO-300 is also equipped with an automatic nozzle compensation feature that reduces banding and streaks in photo prints. By detecting ink nozzles that are not discharging ink during the printing process, the printer will automatically compensate by deploying the surrounding nozzles.

    Compatibility with New Canon Premium Fine Art Rough and Other Media
    Canon has also released a new Premium Fine Art Rough (FA-RG1) paper, designed to push the limits of photographic and artistic expression on the PIXMA PRO-200 and imagePROGRAF PRO-300. This heavy, textured cotton-based paper is particularly suited for portraits and fine art reproduction.

    Seamless Workflow with Bundled Software Applications
    To ensure a seamless integration with professional print workflows, and in particular Canon EOS system cameras, the PIXMA PRO-200 and imagePROGRAF PRO-300 are bundled with the Canon Professional Print & Layout (PPL) software. This powerful programme provides an intuitive interface, making it easy for users to optimise 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.
