Canon Ij Setup imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S – As I specified in an ongoing post, my old substantial organization printer has surrendered the phantom, so I’ve quite recently had another Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-4000 introduced, and today I will walk you through a portion of the key new highlights and give my feeling of this new printer.

To get directly to the point, with my old 24″ iPF6350 breaking after only six years, for a couple of moments, I considered moving far from Canon for my extensive organization printing, however then I understood that there was another line of expansive configuration printers that has quite recently been reported, so I chose to investigate, and was extremely energized by what I saw.

At first, I was basically going to supplant my 6350 with the PRO-2000, which is the successor 24″ wide move media printer, yet in spite of the fact that this new scope of PRO printers are smaller, they are more than double the tallness, which implies the PRO-2000 can’t be conveyed up to my third floor studio. It essentially won’t fit around the highest point of the stairs, even remained on end.

Canon Ij Setup imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S,There was an alternative to have it crane lifted up to the third floor and go in through the window, however this would cost $1,500, and after that obviously another $1,500 to have it brought down again in the event that I move, or when it definitely breaks again sooner or later what’s to come.

I assumed if I would spend another $3,000 I should put that cash towards an imagePROGRAF PRO-4000, which is the 44″ wide older sibling of the PRO-2000, and have that introduced on my second floor rather than up in my studio. Furthermore, when I say elder sibling, I truly do mean BIG, as should be obvious in this photograph of me with the printer subsequent to having it installedBefore singing the agreement, I went to the Canon S Tower here in Tokyo and made various extensive prints on three sorts of Breathing Color media, and I was extremely content with the outcomes. Note that I did my tests on the PRO-2000, preceding I heard the cost for the crane lift, however the 2000 and 4000 are basically indistinguishable aside from the width of move media that can be utilized. This likewise implies this audit will be similarly as valuable on the off chance that you are thinking about the PRO-2000 as it will for the PRO-4000.

Anyway, my PRO-4000 touched base on August 9, and took four individuals to convey it up to the second floor, and put it onto its stand. I have since spent the most recent five days setting it up, making my ICC profiles, and becoming more acquainted with this lovely new bigger configuration printer from Canon.

What’s New?

Before we take a gander at a few prints, how about we speak a little about what’s new with the PRO-4000. All things considered, Canon have discharged another arrangement of inks for this lineup called LUCIA PRO ink, which really diminishes the quantity of hues from 12 to 11 shade inks, yet they included another Chroma Optimizer.From the Canon site, I see that “LUCIA PRO ink plan incorporates miniaturized scale embodied colorants that empower smooth slopes, an extended shading extent, and more profound shading articulation.” In numerous ways, I concur with this announcement, yet I’m really not persuaded that the shading array is extended. Truth be told, for some particular circumstances utilizing matte media I’d the array has been gotten a bit, however I’ll speak more about this later…

The Chroma Optimizer is utilized when imprinting on polished and semi-reflexive media, and goes about as a reasonable coat, enhancing shading and improves the dim territories of gleam prints. The new inks and Chroma Optimizer are likewise said to enhance scratch opposition and decrease graininess. We’ll investigate some genuine prints right away.

I was likewise glad to find that the dark line that was in every case left on the correct underside of the prints is not any more an issue. That is something that bothered the damnation out of my about my iPF6350 and I realize this was not settled the 6450, so it’s pleasant this is at long last fixed.Only One Print Head

Though my old printer had two print heads, costing around $300 each, the new PRO printer lineup utilize only one, 1.28″ wide print head with 18,432 spouts and hostile to obstructing innovation. This new print head costs around $500, so there’s a $100 sparing when that should be supplanted, accepting that you’d change the two heads on the old models obviously. Having quite recently the one head likewise empowered Canon to make the printer smaller in width, which is a pleasant space saver.Having simply the one print head additionally empowered Canon to accelerate the printing impressively. A 18 x 24 inch print on my old printer used to take around 9 minutes, yet with the new PRO-4000 a similar size print takes inexact 3 minutes 40 seconds.

Canon Ij Setup imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S New Media Loading Mechanism

The media stacking instrument has likewise been completely changed. You currently stack the move from the front of the printer by opening the Top Cover and the Output Guide as should be obvious in this photograph (beneath). Subsequent to dropping the media on its holder into put, you turn the move holder which manages the media up into the printer, until the point when you hear a blare, to tell you that the printer would now be able to nourish the media.Then, you close the two covers and press a catch the LCD show to advise the printer to simply ahead and feed the paper. Not exclusively does this mean we don’t need to contact the paper to such an extent, we likewise now have the advantage of the paper being topsy turvy for more often than not before it’s imprinted on.

This is an advantage since it implies that residue is more averse to settle on the print side of the media as you print, and residue that is now on the media, will probably tumble off, before it’s imprinted on. On the off chance that you print on dust, the residue by and large tumbles off as the print dries, leaving a white spec, and for the quality cognizant printer that implies that the print has be made again starting with no outside help.

Media Information Update

Another exceptionally decent touch that I’m almost certain I couldn’t do with my old iPF6350, is that you can refresh the Media Information in the printer drivers on different PCs. Previously, on the off chance that I included a custom media compose, similar to a move of Breathing Color paper, to the printer, to get that same media in the drivers on an alternate PC, I needed to utilize the Media Configuration Tool and include the media again.Wifi and Gigabit Ethernet Connectivity

The PRO arrangement of printers currently additionally bolsters Wifi Connectivity and the wired system interface is presently Gigabit Ethernet. We can likewise still interface with the printer with USB. You would now be able to print PDF and JPEG records specifically from a memory stick also.

I have now printed with Wifi, LAN and USB, and observed Wifi to be a little on the moderate side for a fair measured print, so I purchased a 10 meter USB link so I can print from my eating table, which truly speeded things up. Despite the fact that it’s solitary High Speed USB2, it’s considerably speedier than Wifi.

I additionally really purchased a 20m Ethernet link, with the goal that I can connect the PRO-4000 specifically to my switch on the 3F on the off chance that I have to complete a considerable measure of work from the studio. With USB being so quick, I don’t know I’ll do this regularly, however I in any event presently have the alternative.

Three Sizes of Ink Tanks

Another extraordinary change as I would like to think is the capacity to now browse three sizes of ink tanks, with 160ml, 330ml, and 700ml tanks accessible. My old iPF6350 took 130ml ink tanks, so even the littlest of the new tanks holds 30ml more ink. I could top off the new PRO-4000 with 160ml tanks, however now having the alternative to introduce bigger tanks, and blend and match the sizes, implies we can choose the tank estimate in light of how rapidly the inks rundown.

The PRO-4000 accompanies an arrangement of ink cartridges holding 190ml. Before we introduced the cartridges into the printer, I took this photo for examination (beneath). On the left is a 190ml cartridge, and on the privilege is a 700ml.Mix and Match Inks

In the course of the most recent six years that I’ve been utilizing my old extensive organization printer, I’ve discovered that since I complete a ton of highly contrasting printing, the Matte Black and Photo Black, and the Gray inks tend to rundown the snappiest, so I have purchased a 700ml tank for the Matte and Photo Blacks and the Photo Gray. So I could demonstrate to you the distinction in measure however, I requested a 330ml Gray, for correlation with the starter inks, just to discover they were a similar size, as I just said.

I additionally purchased a 700ml tank for the Chroma Optimizer, on the grounds that I’ve heard this keeps running down before long. At somewhat more than $300 a fly for the 700ml ink tanks however, I figure I will abstain from utilizing 700ml tanks for everything except the substantial use blacks and grays, except if I begin to take many more normal print arranges that is. The good thing however is that we presently have this alternative, and having the capacity to blend and match tank sizes is incredible!

Another incredible new element is that the inks are currently drawn down into a Sub-Ink Tank System, which permits the majority of the accessible ink in a tank to be utilized before replacing it, to decrease squandered ink, even better, void tanks would now be able to be supplanted on the fly, without halting the printer. I haven’t attempted this yet, however that is what the documentation says.So How Good Are the Prints?

How about we investigate now at a couple of prints that I’ve effectively done as tests. First note that in spite of the fact that I have gotten exactly 44 inch moves from my companions at Breathing Color, the greater part of my tests so far have been finished utilizing 24 inch move media. I can hardly wait to print something out that is enormous, however not until the point when I have an end reason for the print.

Anyway, after I made a custom ICC profile for every one of my media composes, I start doing some test prints. As matte media is typically less sympathetic than gleam, I began with the matte stock that I have.

My most loved matte media is Breathing Color’s Pura Bagasse, which comes in both a Smooth and Textured adaptation. I printed this photo of a Northern Red Fox on the Pura Bagasse Textured, and was extremely content with the profundity of the shading and clearness of the picture (right). This is a photo of the print obviously, not the first picture.

I printed this from Capture One Pro 9, so there is no reason for contrasting this with prior prints, however there is a profundity that was not so much there on my prior prints, particularly around the eyes, wh provides the installer to use your devices with Canon Ij Setup imagePROGRAF PRO-4000S the file is free from viruses and malware.
