Canon Pixma Pro 9500 Mark II
The Bottom Line
It has enough simplifying features (and software) to appeal to those without the time and/or inclination to make the effort to understand the nuances of fine art printing, yet it has the ability to allow really high quality prints for those wanting to take their printing up a level (several actually).

Our Favorite Online User Reviews for the Canon Pixma 9500 MK II
I have had this printer for almost 5 years. It's still going strong with no problems to report, and it still makes absolutely beautiful prints.
This is a professional/prosumer photo printer. Use decent paper, use profiles, and expect it to use a lot of ink. Print speed isn't very fast. It's precise and slow, and it prints really well.
With the purchase of a Canon 50D, I felt I was pushing beyond the limits of my HP printer, so I bit the bullet and got the Canon. To be honest, on 3x5 and 4x6, the detail was pretty much the same, but the color rendering was much better on the Canon. On larger picture sizes, there is no competition, the Canon produces amazing quality prints.
