The iPF5100 printer is engineered to produce colors, fine details, and subtle expressions required for some of the most challenging color environments such as photography, proofing and professional graphic applications. The iPF5100 printer is equipped with the ability to recalibrate itself to the original factory settings and apply any necessary adjustments across the printer’s media types. The result – a more predictable printing platform where results can be consistently achieved. The 12-color pigment ink system with LUCIA inks offers excellent color fastness and stability with a remarkably wide color gamut. The ink formulation for Black, Matte Black, Gray and Photo Gray reduces bronzing, while providing stronger ink adhesion to the print media, resulting in better scratch resistance without any additional protection. The Canon L-COA processor, which is dedicated to the imagePROGRAF, is designed to optimize the best quality output at the highest possible speeds. Vivid breathtaking, long lasting prints are achieved by combining Canon’s advanced technological achievements. The iPF5100 is designed for reliability, simplicity, productivity and above all, quality.
