New Canon iPF PRO series printers look more interesting - brand new inks, brand new printers.

Epson SC-Px000 have nice new Ultrachrome HD/HDX inks, but that's about it - the whole rest is virtually an old SP-x900/x890 (with some tweaks maybe)
Can you elaborate on this ?

Can you elaborate on this ?

It's a pure speculation - but until now, the construction of iPF was virtually unchanged since first iPF x000 series, and there were 3 generations of LUCIA inkset - LUCIA, LUCIA II, LUCIA EX (x300, x400). New iPF PRO series features brand new inkset (LUCIA PRO) as well as brand new printer construction.

The present iPFx400 series with LUCIA EX is already competitive to SC-Px000, so it's quite interesting what else will be improved in iPF PRO, which is brand new design in both ink and printer construction respects. Especially because AFAIK Canon LFP Solutions monitors LuLa Printing forum very carefully... ;)

I've been trying to see about doing a review of the new Epson's for a while, but have as yet been unable to get one for review here in the UK. It's interesting to see initial reports here.

I'm looking forward to trying out the PRO-1000 before too long (and comparing to our own iPF8300) and seeing what tangible differences there are.

However, one area I'm always rather aware of is that even if I get a printer to try for a month I can't say much about issues of cleaning/clogging - that needs somewhat longer usage than I get ;-)

Hi Keith
I hope you will find an P_000 to make an interesting review ,as always.Here in Greece I think only one has arrived by now.
I plan to do some tests on it next week as far as the owner will permit it. But I will not have,probably, enough time, so the test will
be visual and preliminary. As far as the clogging problem concerns ,my 9900 had little problems right from the beginning.
I hope P9000 will have not!
Kind regards

hi

I own a Framing Company in India branded as Framing House ( http://www.framinghouse.in ) Now planning to enter Printing business specially Canvas Printing . Did searched reviews for 44 inch P9000 and P10000 sure color printer .

Sometime clients need canvas prints up-to 60 inch . So do these printer support such sizes.

Also kindly share your experience and reveries so that can go for best product . As these printer are really expensive so want to ensure before making purchases .

to do 60" prints you would need the p20000 printer.  Very fast, high quality output pretty much on par with the p8000, well built, designed for production (head is effectively 2.7" wide).

Really informative thread . gone through most of replies . We have Printing Studio branded as http://www.printingstudio.in .

We need to print on 380 to 400 GSM canvas , Should have support for all media like Canvas , Photo-papers , Vinyls, Wallpapers etc .

Also want to ask how much it really matters with Printing colour options. Like Epson offering 16 colour machine and Hp offering 11 Colour Machine. Does it impact printing a lot . We need mainly for Canvas art Prints . We will be producing high quality oil paintings and Portraits like images shown in this Oil Portrait Website

We are looking for high quality large format Printer . Have shortlisted 3 companies Epson, HP and Canon.

So plz advise best suitable 60 inch printer.

No such thing as the perfect printer. From everything I've read each has their strong and weak points.

1. HP has the best fade resistant inks but also has poorest gamut, and tonal transitions are not as smooth as with Canon and Epson.

2. Canon's 60" printer has all 10 inks vs only 8 for the Epson 20000 so Canon will have better gamut. But their new ink set only has 1/2 the fade resistance of the new Epson inks. 

3. Epson has excellent fade resistant compared to Canon, almost as good as HP but with much better gamut and tonal transitions.  But Epson's new high speed head for the 20000 has a reputation of breaking down a lot so purchasing a 3 year warranty is highly recommended (which will appreciably raise its price compared to the Canon and HP).  Epson also uses more ink per sq meter, sometimes up to 50% more. This makes Canon a little cheaper but also the extra ink from Epson is difficult for some canvasses to absorb which can result in sticky blotchy patches, though this will obviously not be a problem if you use actual Epson canvas.

So as you can see there is no simple or perfect answer.

(All of the above only applies if you're talking about an aqueous printer. Latex or Solvent is another matter entirely.)

I have had my P9000 for only 2-3 months and am pleasantly surprised at the lack of nozzle gaps compared to the 7890 that did a nosedive over a year ago with 2 completely clogged channels, then completely belly up about a month ago (I was using it for B&W since 2 colors were gone). 

It seems to me that nozzle gaps are less frequent (to non-existent) on the P9000 when I simply turn off the printer at the end of the day/after the last print.  I run a nozzle check immediately after power-on and log the results in a journal of sorts.  Prior to power off at night strategy, I saw a few small gaps about once per week.  I would say that I rarely need to do a pair cleaning and when I do it seems almost always due to a few gaps in Light Cyan, although there have been none on that channel for the past month since I began just powering off the printer for overnight.  The quality seems at least as good as the 7890, a little more intense/saturated colors, no complaints at all on quality.

I saw that you referenced a problem with the green channel.  I posted a work-around a few months back.  Not an ideal solution but it will get you by until you decide what to do.  Here is a copy of my previous post, hope it helps...

Iím the ďproudĒ owner of (2) 9900ís. The oldest of the 2, bought in early 2010, finally had a printhead failure about 6 months ago with the yellow channel. I decided to keep it for parts in hopes to keep the other running for a least another year. Over the course of January the second printer showed signs of the orange channel going out. It was hit and miss depending on subject matter if the output was being effected. Last week the channel went almost completely out. Just 2 orange lines are printing top and bottom on the nozzle check. Unfortunately, Iím not in a position to replace the machines just yet. Replacing the printheads are out of the question given the cost (even if I attempt to do it myself) verses the cost of new machines. I had/have work in-house that still needed printed so out of desperation I deleted the printer from my system (Mac) and reinstalled it using the 9890 driver hoping that it would work given the printers are similar less the orange and green channels. To my amazement it worked and the output looks good. Iím not sure what the long tern ramifications of doing so are but given the printer was going to electronics recycling if figured it was worth a try. I thought this info might help someone out there with a bad orange or green channel.
