There are many things that we could say – and indeed, have said – about Canon’s hugely acclaimed professional photo & fine art printers from the ImagePROGRAF PRO range.
These printers – which include such devices as the 2100, 4100, 4100S, 6100, and 6100S – are noted for the high-quality printing they make possible, together with their advanced image processing, smart media handling, intuitive and efficient operation, and sophisticated software solutions.
Another important aspect of these large-format printers, however, is the inks that they come with. Whether you choose the A1 24” Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO 2100, the 1524mm 60” 6100S or any of the models in-between, you can be assured of benefitting from Canon’s leading-edge print technology, including a print resolution of 2,400 x 1200 dpi.
If, however, you have also been looking at other wide-format printers of similar specification, you may have given some thought to the HP Z9, which – while impressive – does come with one potential drawback compared to the Canon, with regard to the inks bundled with it.
To be assured that you’ll have enough ink, you might choose the Canon
There are several reasons why the professional photo & fine art printers that make up the Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO range – from the 2100 to the 6100S – are such winners as far as their inks are concerned. These are easy-to-use and technologically advanced printers that can be depended on to produce prints with both quality and efficiency – but they also represent excellent value for money in terms of what is contained in the box.
Whichever Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO series machine you purchase, you will find in the box a complete set of full ink tanks, immediately giving you enough ink for the printing of hundreds of images. While the HP Z9 is also shipped with a set of starter inks, HP does not state how much ink is in each cartridge; this essentially leaves the buyer having to also purchase a separate full set of inks with the printer, so that they have the backup inks they need to be covered.
It might seem like a small detail, but the importance of your new large-format printer’s ink tanks being full should not be understated. Canon’s ImagePROGRAF PRO series printers have the large ink tanks that save users from having to purchase replacement inks so often. Furthermore, users of these wide-format printers have the option of mixing ink sizes in accordance with how frequently the inks are used, which can further help save money, given that larger tanks cost less per millilitre.
The PRO series professional photo & fine art printers from Canon have an especially strong reputation for super-low ink use. Indeed, one analysis has shown the PRO 4100 using 17% less ink than the HP Z9 when taking on the same task, using semi-gloss photo media. That would add up to serious savings over time, were you to choose a Canon ImagePROGRAF PRO printer.
