The addition of 16 bits per channel print capability - with 276 trillion possible colours - offers outstandingly smooth tonal gradations in both colour and monochrome prints.

New for the Pixma Pro9500 Mark II is an Ambient Light Correction feature using Canon Kyuanos technology . Users can select the type of lighting under which a print will be displayed; the colours in the final print are then automatically adjusted to ensure that the displayed result looks just the way the photographer intended.
