Not for the professional

By

from Forida

If you started in photography with a dark room, like i did, a print size of 11x14 is standard. There is no support for this in the paper profile. This is not acceptable. I will get rid of this printer as soon as i can. I have been a fan of Canon for about 20 years but no longer. Yes you can make a custom size 11x14 but not borderless. That would be ok only the borders are not equal and the bottom is about twice the size of the rest. Changing the numbers in the dialog box does nothing. I expected more from Canon. I am completely disgusted with this product.

Shoddy quality

By

from Undisclosed

Purchased the Pro9500 Mark II to enable me to print large pictures after vacation trips. I have owned it for about 2 years now. First impression, excellent. Pictures come out with amazing clarity. After printer was left unused for a couple months, the paper feed for large prints quit working. Called Canon and got it repaired. Now here it is about a year later and minimal usage in that time, same exact problem. It is broken again. Do not waste your money on this printer. It is completely unreliable.

After Reviewing other printers

By

from Montclair, CA

I had been lookingfor a photo printer that gave me a quality picture plus a size larger than 8X10. I reviewed printers for a long time and finally decided on the Pixma pro 9500 MK ll. Quality is the key word, The images on photo paper have exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have purchased this Canon product.

I would buy this product again

By

from WV  -  Frequent User

I am an amateur photographer and work mostly in black and white. I initially purchased the 900 MkII. Color was fine, but B&W prints had a greenish caste that grew worse with time and grey scale prints were just flat. The 9500 Mk II B&W prints have great depth and no color caste that I can see. If I had unlimited funds, I might make a different choice, but dollar for dollar you just can't buy a better printer for fine art B&W.

Photo from the Pixma 9500 Mk II

By

from High Ridge, Missouri

I've owned my printer for about a year. I've had no problems with it. Each and every picture looks just like the exposure. I could not be more satisfied with my purchase!

DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!!

By

from Lawrence, KS

I purchased this printer at the end of March 2010. It printed perfectly for the first 7 months. With the exception of going through large amounts of ink, it printed high quality images. I was going through a set of ink cartridges about every 12-15 4"x6" and 5"x7" photos on Platinum Pro paper. Cost per photo is a lot higher than I expected. It would be cheaper to have someone else print them. In October 2010, I noticed that the yellow stopped printing, so I tried cleaning and then deep cleaning of the nozzles. When that failed, I contacted Canon and they ended up sending me a new cartridge tray since it was still under warranty. Everything worked fine again for about a year. With the exception of high ink usage. Now the yellow and the magenta has stopped printing. I have cleaned and deep cleaned to no avail. And of course the warranty has run out. Now this is nothing but an expensive doorstop. I would highly suggest purchasing something other than the Canon Pixma Pro9500 MKII.

High Quality Prints

By

from Youngstown, Ohio  -  Frequent User

This is a great higher-medium end photo printer. It can produce amazing art prints and isn't that difficult to set up or use. As with most (all?) printers though, keep in mind that the main source of income for the printer company usually comes later in the form of the user buying continuing ink refills. This is just the nature of the beast. However, it's still an important factor to keep in mind when deciding how much your new printer will really cost.

Excellent Photo printing

By

from Denver, CO

Excellent print productions. Foot print is large but still very compact for the output size.

Very bad on ink

By

from Undisclosed

There is no issue with the quality of the images produced by the PIXMA PRO 9500 II. For me it is an issue with ink. The ink cartridges are small and the printer cleans regularly which wastes the ink. The 'ink low' feature is not very accurate and it is difficult to tell how much ink there is left to go. So, once the 'refill ink' light comes on and you change the cartridge the printer goes through a clean process again which often puts another cartridge out of ink. So off you go again. It's great if you have a batch of photographs to print, but very costly if you're only printing one or two at a time

Perfect Prints Every Time

By

from Long Island, NY  -  Frequent User

Every print looks exactly like the image on my monitor. I had an expensive, ink guzzling Epson printer and the prints were never like the images on my computer's monitor. This Canon 9500 MK II gives my exact copies of the images on my monitor every time; black and white or color.

Questions about this item:

Will G  Does this printer offer a Black-ink-only feature (not grey scale but just black)? I am thinking in terms of conserving ink. Thanks, Will
ROSS M  Will, This printer has a photo black, a matte black and a gray cartridge along with 7 color cartridges as well. When I print black and white images, I assume that it is only using those 3 cartridges. None of the cartridges are large capacity so if you do much printing, you need to keep some stock cartridges around. Enjoy! Ross
Jerry P  what is the difference between the 9000 mark pro and the 9500 mark pro?
BRUCE T  9000 = 8 colors 9500 = 10 colors 9500 mark2 10 colors and is somewhat faster
