Introduction

Canon goes up against Epson’s much-loved Stylus Photo R2400 with their recently released Pixma Pro 9500. Each printer has a pigment ink system; the R2400 has nine inks and the Pro9500 has ten. Both printers sell for $849. The Pro9500 purportedly produces crisp, high-contrast, and vivid prints with the use of photo black, matte black, gray, red, and green inks in addition to the standard CMY inks. It also swaps between the Glossy and Matte Black inks automatically. The Epson R2400 scored very well in our recent review. Let’s see how Canon’s pigment ink printer stacks up.
