“Best Photographic Printer 2011” @ FESPA

Built for ultra high quality imaging and exceptional performance, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400 44″ large format printer is equipped with an array of professional features. The re-formulated 12-colour LUCIA pigment ink system increases the achievable colour gamut by approximately 20% from the previous imagePROGRAF 12-colour series, enabling over 90% coverage of PANTONE colours. A large 80GB hard drive, sub-ink tank system, Gigabit Ethernet support and Accounting Manager feature make this a premier solution for the fine art, photography and proofing markets.

To fully utilize on the dynamic colour range of the LUCIA EX ink set, a high-precision printing mode delivers quality a step above the previously available highest quality mode. And with the Print Plug-in for Photoshop, now with support for Adobe CMM, users can process images in 16-bit. For more control over the final output, the Media Configuration Tool expands on Canon’s array of media options, allowing users to input profiles for third party media. By combining Canon’s technological achievements, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400 achieves consistently breathtaking, durable and long lasting prints.
