Built for ultra high quality imaging and exceptional performance, the imagePROGRAF iPF8400 44" large format printer is equipped with an array of professional features. An incredibly large color spectrum is produced by the 12-color LUCIA EX pigment ink set, which also provides better scratch resistance and smoother gradations. The multi-sensor included with this printer provides improved color density detection and allows for a full calibration to be completed within 15 minutes, with the ability to use non-Canon branded media. The iPF8400 is also equipped with a large hard drive, geared to increase productivity in high volume printing and streamlined workflows, while allowing for faster processing of large files as well as the ability to reprint jobs directly from the printer.

LUCIA EX ink set
Canon's LUCIA EX ink set is designed for dramatic photographic expression and detailed color reproduction for exacting proofing applications. This 12-color ink set offers a brilliant range of vibrant colors, smooth gradations and transitions, with incredibly fine details. This specially formulated ink also offers better scratch resistance, superb black reproduction and exceptional color stability compared to its predecessor. Combined with the printer's technologies, the LUCIA EX inks have the ability to satisfy the demanding needs of the photographic, fine art, proofing and graphics professionals.

Color calibration management system
The color calibration management console is included for the centralized management of networked printers in a system from one easy to use software tool. This unique feature enables color calibration targets created using the iPF6450 printer with spectrophotometer to be linked across the entire line of the 12 color imagePROGRAF devices. A printer's administrator can monitor and manage each printer in a remote location. Linking color calibration targets among multiple printers allows color calibration for custom media to be performed on printers not equipped with a spectrophotometer unit.

This printer includes an upgraded, built-in color densitometer that's designed to offer even more precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and a developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer color difference. Automatic color calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer's operation panel. A single color calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to media in all printing modes.

High speed printing with fewer passes
In highest print mode, the order of ink application and layering is optimized to maintain the highest print quality with fewer passes, making this mode twice as fast compared to previous models. In high and standard print modes, print density within a single pass of the heads is optimized to reduce unevenness and support fewer passes as well.

Tint and tone adjustments
The tint and tone controls over the four monochromatic shades allow a user to create even more expressive blacks with smoother gradations - especially in dark areas. Found in both the Printer Driver and Print Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, the tone control in the monochrome photo mode includes adjustments for:

Enhanced print plug-in for Adobe Photoshop
This export module allows 16-bit image processing, preserving the expanded color spectrum and high gradation of the file. The print plug-in also reduces the possibility of incorrect settings, by providing an integrated interface for print settings in Photoshop and the printer driver, enabling efficient production. The adjustment pattern setting feature allows for multiples of an image to be printed with different color settings in order to choose the color that most closely matches what you need.

Gallery wrap feature
This creative tool can be accessed via Adobe Photoshop and allows users to easily create gallery wrap prints for framing, as well as creative options that will expand output possibilities.

Print plug in for digital photo professional
This export module allows users to directly process and print RAW image files from DPP. This plug-in bypasses the operating system's dependent print driver, allowing processing of 16-bit RGB images directly, which dramatically increases gradations and as a result, overall image quality.

Accounting manager
Tracks how much ink and media is being consumed when printing. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on "cost of goods". The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost.
