 A Printer Packed with Extras

The Canon iPF8400 printer comes bundled with a Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, Digital Photo Professional, and Microsoft Office. The enhanced print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop includes a new Adjustment Pattern Setting which allows for multiples of an image to be printed at once with different colour values implemented and displayed. Gallery wraps for canvas prints can now be created using the new Gallery Wrap Feature. To improve versatility, the iPF8400 has a media configuration tool which allows customers to not only utilize existing Canon-branded media, but also with third party media. By combining Canon’s technological achievements, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400 achieves consistently breath-taking, durable and long lasting prints.

Lucia EX Ink Set

The LUCIA EX Ink set is designed for dramatic photographic expression with detailed colour reproduction for exacting proofing applications. This 12-Color ink set offers a range of vibrant colours, smooth gradations and transitions, with incredibly fine detail. This specially formulated ink also offers better scratch resistance, superb black reproduction and exceptional colour stability .Combined with the printer’s various new technologies, the LUCIA EX inks have the ability to satisfy the demanding needs of the Photographic, Fine Art, Proofing and Graphics professionals. The LUCIA EX Ink system excels in reproducing colours in the blue, red, purple, yellow and green spectral ranges, providing an exceptionally large colour gamut. Vibrant, rich colours with unsurpassed detail and crisp, clean monotone images make this ink set essential for incredible photo quality output.

New Tint & Tone Controls

New tint and tone controls over the four monochromatic shades allow a user to create even more expressive blacks with smoother gradations – especially in dark areas. Found in both the Printer Driver and Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, the new tone control in the monochrome photo mode includes adjustments for: Soft Tone, Middle Tone, Medium Hard Tone, Hard Tone, and Strong Hard Tone.

A tint control has also been added to the Print Plug-in for Photoshop. This new option gives users the ability to affect the white space on an image. By adding monochromatic ink to an images’ white space, the user can improve gloss control in a black and white image, allowing them greater control on how their final printed output will appear.

High Speed Printing with Fewer Passes

On best print mode, the order of ink application and layering is optimized to maintain the highest print quality with fewer passes, making this mode twice as fast. In high and standard print modes, print density within a single pass of the heads is optimized to reduce unevenness and support fewer passes as well.

New Multi-Sensor

This new printer includes an upgraded, built-in Colour densitometer that’s designed to offer even more precise calibration and Colour matching. Using a three-Colour LED and a newly developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer Colour difference. Automatic Colour calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer’s operation panel. A single Colour calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to media in all printing modes.

Colour Calibration Systemorma

The Colour Calibration Management Console is included for the centralized management of networked printers in a system from one easy to use software tool. This unique feature enables colour calibration targets created using the iPF6450 printer with optional spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of new 12 colour imagePROGRAF devices. A printer’s administrator can monitor and manage each printer in a remote location. Linking colour calibration targets among multiple printers allows colour calibration for custom media to be performed on printers not equipped with a Spectrophotometer Unit.
