Perhaps Canon will start to sell paper in the 3:2 ratio.  They only sell one paper like that now (4x6).  The 13x19 comes close, but 8x12 would be great.  I hate having to crop my prints.

Canon (et al.) really should sell paper sizes that match the aspect ratio of the sensor, it makes no sense at all that they don't.  8x10 if fine for portraits, but for landscapes 8x12 is so superior.

Totally agree! I am also upset they "supposedly" discontinued their 13x19 museum etching paper...that was what sold me on one of their pixma printers! My printer hasn't been in use since, are any of you familiar with substitute brands that make a very similar museum etching paper as the Canon version in the 13x19 size?

Canon Museum Etching is rebranded Hahnemhule Museum Etching paper, so should still be available.

The paper size ratios are different from sensor size raitios, but there is no one type of sensor 4:3, 3:2 and medium format. Most cameras sold have sensors in a 4:3 ratio (micro 4/3 and most compacts). No need to crop if unless you're doing borderless printing - just trimming!

The paper manufacturers are sticking to standard paper sizes - A3 is 297 *420 which is close to the 3:2 ratio, which are designed for documents as its nice and easy to scale for different sizes.  The ISO paper sizes are designed that if you cut them in half they will still be the same ratio ..... A4 has the same ratio as A3 (I often purchase A3 paper as its often only slightly more expensive than A4 and I get 2 A4 sheets)

Where did you find that information? I still see Canon releasing the museum etching in an 8.5 x 11" size and have you ever tried the hahnemuhle paper?

I've often thought about getting a decent A3 printer.  But there seems to be a lot of comments on the internet suggesting that the 9500 isn't as good as the Epson R3000 in the same price range.  Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the 9500?  If it isn't as good as the competition, what does the Pro-1 need to improve on?
