Canon logoDesigned for photography and fine art, the new imagePROGRAF PRO line features the newly developed LUCIA PRO II pigment ink designed to help improve the image quality from previous imagePROGRAF PRO Series models while also enhancing resistance to light fading. Improved black density on art paper is achieved by changing the formulation and material of matte black ink. The colour gamut of dark regions is expanded by the adoption of a newly designed image table.

A crystalline wax has been added to the new inks, helping the production and preservation of images by giving the printed surface better resistance to abrasion-caused scratches on glossy and semi-glossy media. The reformulated Chroma Optimiser is designed to give the surface a clear coat of transparent ink that helps to suppress 'bronzing' and reduce uneven IPF print sunsetStunning colours from Canon's new imagePROGRAF 

Canon's new imagePROGRAF PROseries includes a newly developed ink sensing system which periodically monitors the accuracy of the ink ejection and automatically maintains optimal ink placement position on the page to ensure high image quality. The intelligent media handling function automatically detects the paper type, width and estimated remaining amount of paper, plus it completes the paper feeding process in a shorter time than previous models. The automation of this process will help ensure stable operations even in the absence of skilled or experienced personnel. The addition of LED interior lights allows users to preview prints and semi-translucent ink tank covers allows users to monitor ink tank status.

Yoshinori Moritaki, General Manager Product Marketing at Canon Oceania comments: “The imagePROGRAF PRO Series models offer outstanding performance and versatility delivering exquisite print and impeccable details while providing excellent light resistance. The PRO models recreate expressive prints while also reproducing a wide colour gamut range that helps produce excellent image quality. The announcement of this latest series shows our on-going commitment to empower our customers with the tools and capabilities needed to deliver high-quality content for photography and fine art projects.”
