Thought I would share our new piece of equipment that arrived in the office last week! Needless to say, I’m all excited like a little kid with this thing. Last year I decided to try one of Canon’s desktop printers, the Pixma Pro-10, and was so impressed I seriously started looking into their newer large format printer lines. Previously I had been using Epson with a variety of printers over the years and unfortunately as good as their printers are, I still had numerous ink consumption issues and clogging problems.
With the 6400 I’ve been nothing but blown away so far. The print quality, profile handling and color management has been outstanding and I really haven’t found anything to complain about yet.
A few impressive things to note:
- 12 color LUCIA EX inks provide a very large color spectrum, with smooth graduations
- Now includes 130ml ink tank sizes as well as the 300ml, you can also change ink while printing
- An excellent Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop & Canon’s DPP
I’ve also had a chance to start filling our new print orders this last week and it’s been a real treat to work with, I look forward to doing a more in depth review as I get some more time using it. For more info on this and Canon’s other large format printers, here’s a link www.usa.canon.com
