I print virtually everything on canvas or matte paper, on rolls. If you find it difficult to load a roll of paper, seriously, you need to spend some time at the gym working with weights. The adapters for 2 or 3" cores are not strange, they're straight forward snap ins that allow you to use rolls with either core size with one feed bar.
You can select either photo black/grey or matt black/grey for use on canvas by 'fooling' the machine and selecting a glossy media. I've compared prints from HP and Epson printers against the 8300 and the 8300 more than holds it's own against either brands, whether judged on fineness of gradation of tones, B&W, or detail.
I have 6 x 8300s, 4 x 8300Ss, 3 x 8000s, 1 x 8100. These printers seem to either work - or are flaky from the very start.
From the above I had 3 x 8300s that died almost instantly from a mist fan error - traced back to a faulty mainboard ($1700 ea. for parts alone). The printers are idle and have been for over a year. You can't have a model where replacing the mainboard practically costs more than a new printer - including shipping from the US - especially when you add in the new the new heads and new ink you get with a new printer - those are worth a shade over $2000 alone.
IMHO Canon's Corporate and Social Responsibilities are found wanting if the only cost effective solution to a failed fan is to throw the whole 130kg of metal and plastic into landfill.
Shortly these three printers will be 'installed' in Canon HQ's car-park in Victoria, Australia as a sign of my disagreement in their model.
In short: Make sure that you have a service contract. Ask for three years minimum.
