Canon iPF6100 Review

 

The Canon iPF6100 is a substantial printer, which you'll discover as soon as you see the box and palette, weighing in at about 175 pounds. Setting up the iPF6100 is a two-person job, so plan on having someone around to give you a hand with it....

If you're in the market for a 24 printer, the Canon iPF6100 should be high on your list. Print quality is excellent with color images that rival or exceed anything I've done on an inkjet printer. ...

The imagePROGRAF6100 should put an end to talk that Canon can't compete in the professional photo printer market. With a better ink formulation and an improved print head, this 12-ink printer produces excellent images on both glossy and fine-art media.

If you're in the market for a 24" printer, the Canon iPF6100 should be high on your list. Print quality is excellent with color images that rival or exceed anything I've done on an inkjet printer. Print speed is amazing - this is the first printer I've...

Object of Desire: Canon imagePrograf iPF6100 Printer

 

Canon adds another heavyweight to its large-format printer line.

Pricing for the 5100 has not been released but it should be somewhere near the 5000's initial $1,945 price tag, while the price on the 5000 should drop. The imagePrograf iPF6100 will have a list price of $3,495

Large-Format Printer

Great color saturation, print speed, detail; quiet

Website difficult to navigate for ICC profiles, drivers, etc

Overall, the Canon imagePROGRAF iPF6100 produced stunning prints at a variety of sizes. Its quick and quiet output was a welcome feature and its ease of use made for a pleasant print experience. While the ICC and driver problem was a bit of a turnoff,...
