Incoming! Just delivered. The Canon Image ProGraph 6350 large format printer.
I will be evaluating this printer for use in fine art printing duties. The printer is on loan courtesy of Canon Singapore (Thanks Andrew and Norman for making this possible). And I will write about my experiences on the printer.
I have used the Epson 4900 at KHL Printers fairly extensively for proofing pages for my book, but have not personally dealt with the workflow of fine art printing. I will attempt to document my learning process, as well as how this printer performs over the course of the next weeks.
The iPF6350 is a 24 inch wide (600mm) printer, accepting roll paper/substrate. It is also able to print cut sheets, but roll paper is much less expensive on the long run, as per sq ft, the cost is much lower. I will not repeat the specifications of the printer, which is easily found on the web. Canon's official specs are HERE .
The printer uses 12 colour pigment, archival quality inks. These are reported to last some centuries when printed on proper acid-free archival quality paper.
