About Canon iPF5100

Canon imagePROGRAF announces yet another breakthrough in large format printing solutions. With the imagePROGRAF iPF5100 Large Format Printer, brilliant color, sophisticated print-head technology, and high speed output are all brought together into a high-performance large format printing-system. With features designed to help all levels of users achieve extraordinary results, the iPF5100 printer is the ideal solution for any color professional looking for striking, full-bleed color output with strength in paper handling and exceptional speed in output.

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 new 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 new 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.

The Canon iPF5100 is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Canon iPF5100: Durable, Easy setup, Easy to use, Good media handling, High productivity, High quality output, Low running cost, Reliable and Small footprint

B & W prints the best I've seen so far. This printer is a breeze to install, easy to use and gives prints that amaze. For me it has been an incentive to take even better photographs.

Excellent quality Printer, but

It is a high quality printer, but it rejects paper fed into the top loading port far too often and it makes no difference what brand, type or thickness the paper may be. Only posters paper is designed to front load and I never use the cassette being a fine art photographer. It is very difficult to use. Finding out how to set the printer commands is a chore.

They could take some lessons from Epson in how to better write a manual and design a printer for user friendliness. Upgrading media type is a big hassle and poorly thought out by Canon designers. It is far more complex than it should be to set up the print commands and use the printer. Canon people I have talked to simple said they got it right when they designed the 6100. What the hell kind of answer is that?l

Love it so far!

By

Finally got the software downloaded from the Canon site, and got the printer working. Used up the sample roll of Premium Matte paper that comes with the printer. VERY pleased with the results! Now I just have to get a handle on calibrating and profiling...

Still evaluating. Included software CD does not include Windows 7. Downloaded software from Canon website, and have yet to get a print out of it.

DO NOT UPGRADE TO 1.38 FIRMWARE

By

If printheads start to clog with ver 1.35 you can bypass and continue printing with NO streaking or other issues. With ver 1.38 as soon as it even thinks it has a clog, you cannot even run a head test.

Good Value

By

I have used the iPF5100 and the iPF6100 for over a year now. These two printers consistently out put some of my best works. The color saturation is unbelievable and the black and white prints are the best I have seen with any printer. I have total control of full tonal quality of my black and whites. The only con about the iPF5100 is that the foot print is much larger than it's competition's. You will need a good size table or purchase Canons metal cabinet. What I like most about these two printers are the fact that they do not require any maintenance; except for a few free software updates once a while. Oh, yes, I do have to dust them off from time to time. I highly recommend this imagePrograf printers for anyone who wants to print big.

Excellent product

By

I researched long and hard before I bought this printer. I have to say it paid off! I am extremely happy with my Canon iPF 5100. Colors and print quality is better than what I was getting from the lab. This is partly because I have better control over the paper I use. In addition, prints are relatively inexpensive so if I want a re-print with changes it's fast and easy. The printer is BIG and it requires some space, but what would you expect with a large format printer? We are looking to buy one or two more as well as the iPF 6100.

I have found this printer a wonderful item to have for fast turn around to my customers. The prints are sharp and clear as if produced by my lab. The ability to provide my customers with a product quickly is spreading by word of mouth.
