If you want to step up and print your photos larger, the 13-inch-wide Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-300 can output up to 13 x 39-inch panoramas. Not only will your photos be bigger, they’ll also look gorgeous. The Canon Pro-300 uses a 9-color Lucia Pro pigment ink system with cyan, photo cyan, red, magenta, photo magenta, red, yellow, photo black, matte black, and gray inks plus a chroma optimizer, which enhances glossiness and flattens the print surface to expand color on glossy paper. The Canon PRO-300 has separate nozzles for the photo black and matte black inks, so it doesn’t need to switch tanks, which cuts down on ink waste and saves time. Meanwhile, the printer’s Nozzle Recovery System can detect if a nozzle is clogged and will automatically compensate with the help of other nozzles so you can continue printing. A Skew Correction feature uses built-in sensors to automatically fix paper skewing, so your photos won’t print out crooked. Print quality from the Pro-300 was exceptional for both color and black-and-white images. In particular, the Pro-300 uses a new matte black ink with deeper black density that looks beautiful on fine art photo paper. While the Pro-300 offers pro-level print quality it’s relatively compact (15 percent smaller than the previous model) and easy to use.
