imagePROGRAF iPF8300: a high quality 44” printer for fine art prints

imagePROGRAF iPF8300: a high quality 44” printer for fine art prints

Utilising Canon's LUCIA EX 12-colour pigment ink system, the imagePROGRAF iPF8300 large format printer delivers outstanding colour accuracy, rich, vibrant tones and offers exceptional versatility for professional photographers.

Who is it for?

The imagePROGRAF iPF8300 large format printer will appeal to many professional photographers, across different genres of photography, who are seeking to print large photographic and fine art prints (up to 44 inches across). The iPF8300 features a 12-colour LUCIA EX pigment ink system that delivers exceptionally accurate colours and rich tones - the printer also has a high volume, easily manageable print production for users.

Key features

  • 44" print roll paper printer
  • LUCIA EX 12-colour pigment ink system
  • Designed for photographic applications
  • 80GB Hard Disk
  • Added versatility with RIPS, media and workflows
  • Simple to learn and operate

  • 44-inch wide prints

    If you need to produce very large fine art prints, or photographs, the iPF8300 is ideal. Able to print on roll paper up to 44 inches wide and also able to produce borderless prints to the full width of the roll paper, you can really make your images stand out.

  • 12 ink tanks

    Using 12 ink tanks offers a much greater colour gamut than is possible with fewer ink colours - the addition of primary red, green and blue ink tanks makes reproducing these difficult colours much easier. The increased number of colours also makes sure that your ink tanks last longer because there is less colour mixing required to achieve certain colours and tones, so your ink is not wasted and your running costs are reduced.

  • Wide range of media options

    The media feed options provide a large range of print media width possibilities, from 0.07mm up to 0.8mm thick substrates. The creativity of paper choice is therefore not limited allowing you to select the most appropriate media to show off your images, from high gloss to backlit film, fine art rag or canvas and everything in between.

  • Built-in calibration

    Achieving accurate print colours can prove difficult, but the iPF8300 has a built-in colour calibration system to achieve excellent results from the first print to the last. It avoids the 'trial and error' process of colour matching. Once calibrated, the iPF8300 will adjust the ink output to suit the media being used to ensure optimum ink usage each time. 

  • Lightfast for 100 years

    Using Canon paper and inks, the iPF8300 system will produce vibrant prints which are guaranteed to be unaffected by light for up to 100 years.

  • Versatility

    The iPF8300 provides excellent compatibility with ICC profile-based colour management systems (CMS). It is also designed to work seamlessly with many third party RIP vendors, supporting photographic applications. For maximum versatility, a wide variety of media types are also supported.

  • High capacity ink tanks

    Since the iPF8300 is capable of producing such large prints, the ink tanks available are either 330ml or 700ml each. If you do run out of an ink tank during a print, you can replace it while the print job is running thanks to sub-ink tanks that store a small amount of ink to enable the printer to continue running while you switch over the main tank. This ensures your print run is never interrupted when printing long runs and you'll never miss a deadline.

  • 80GB Hard Disk

    Featuring an 80GB hard disk built-in to the printer, the imagePROGRAF iPF8300 is designed for high throughput environments with many print jobs queued simultaneously. The hard disk allows you to recover print jobs after an error, change the print order of jobs and handle very large files from composite, high resolution images It also enables you to print once, proof and then print the same image many times direct from the printer. All of this makes the iPF8300 ideally suited to photographic applications.

  • Effortless operation

    The imagePROGRAF iPF8300's large, bright and easy to read 160x128 dot LCD screen gives you easy access to sophisticated functions.

  • Simple cost management

    One of the advantages of bringing your printing in-house is the ability to reduce print costs by avoiding the use of expensive third party companies. Built-in cost management software makes it easy to track the cost of each print produced and enables ROI calculations to be made over time.

  • Interface

    Suitable for use in small or large photo studios, or in a home office, the iPF8300 features both USB and Ethernet connections to enable it to be set as a network printer if required.

  • Software options

    The iPF8300 comes with additional software to enhance the connectivity and capability of your large format print environment. This includes a Plug-In for Photoshop and Digital Photo Professional, as well as Digital Photo Front Access, that's ideal for viewing your images and assigning to an application.

  • Two 1-inch print heads

    Using two 1-inch wide print heads, the iPF8300 can eject ink from 30,720 nozzles at a time. Each ink droplet is formed of four picolitres of ink to produce very fine dots on the print media resulting in increase print resolution and smoother colour gradation. The large print heads contribute to the rapid print speeds achieved by the iPF8300, by allowing larger areas of an image to be produced at any given time.

  • LUCIA EX pigment ink

    The LUCIA EX pigment inks used in the iPF8300 combine the results achieved with dye-based inks with the durability and weather resistance of a pigment ink. In addition to the standard CMY ink colours, the LUCIA EX ink sets include complimentary RGB colours as well as two shades of grey ink and two different black inks - one for glossy paper printing and one for matte paper printing. The use of these 12 ink tanks enables a much increased colour gamut and provides the ability to achieve vivid colours on a wide variety of media from glossy paper to canvas.

    This new ink technology is linked to new image processing systems to deliver smoother gradations, reduced bronzing and highly durable prints. The two grey ink tanks and two black ink tanks ensure that monochrome images are produce with exceptional detail and tonal range from shadows through to highlights on glossy and matte media alike.
