Canon Unveils New imagePROGRAF Printers

February 23, 2010

Canon Canada Inc. has introduced two new models in its imagePROGRAF line of large-format printers, designed for producing photographic prints, proofs and general commercial work.

Both of the new machines, the 112-centimetre (44-inch) imagePROGRAF iPF8300 and the 61-centimetre (24-inch) iPF6300, use Canon’s 12-colour LUCIA EX pigment ink set. Canon claims this new ink set increases the colour gamut by approximately 20 percent relative to its previous imagePROGRAF iPFx100 series machines, while also enabling over 90 percent coverage of PANTONE colours.
The company continues to state that the LUCIA EX ink set is well-suited for photographic prints, because of the ability to produce crisper blacks and smoother colour gradations, while also reducing bronzing and metamerism.

Each new imagePROGRAF model uses 2.5-centimetre printheads, which hold 2,560 nozzles per colour and output a resolution of up to 2,400 x 1,200 dots per inch.

Canon has also developed a Media Configuration Tool to work with Canon and third-party substrates. ICC profiles of media types from Intelicoat, Ilford, LexJet and Moab will be available for download when the new printers are released.
