Is printer up to snuff?

TimC

I currently have a Canon Rebel EOS T6, and a Canon MP560 printer. I conduct post processing using Adobe Photoshop Elements.
I'd like to try shooting in Adobe RGB, but I don't know if the printer is capable of producing the full Adobe spectrum.
So...how effective is the MP560 at printing in true color and Adobe RGB?

Hi TimC,

 

Generally speaking, the more inks a printer has, the larger the possible color space.  The PIXMA MP560 has five inks, whereas the iP8720 has a six ink system, and the Pro-100 has eight, and some printers have even more.

 

While the MP560 will not hit every corner of Adobe RGB, it will provide sufficient coverage for many applications.  Additional inks will provide even higher quality.
