I just published an article with three videos about Imageprint now printing to the Canon Pro line of printers. You can read it HERE

thanks Kevin for an interesting article/video.   Just thinking out loud,  no image print for HP large format printers?
regards
Larry.

Larry, No, not sure if there will be or could be.  HP has kind of gone quiet in the printer market.  They had such good ideas a few years ago and at one point with some of their science seemed poised to be a leader and then they went quiet.  The new Canon Pro printers are really nice and I still use my Epson p800 and 9900 a few times a week.  Granted the 9900 sometime has to go through several cleaning cycles before it ready to go but once that is done it is a workhorse.

I hope HP thinks again about the photo market.

I always thought that Imageprint was never offered for HP because the HP large format fine art printers (Z3100 and later) could build their own profiles, and Imageprint's main selling point was the profiles.  The new RED is compatible with all printers according to their website (but only with your own custom or paper mfg profiles) and Black is the "original" version (my assumption).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I see not advantage in using Imageprint : All I can do with it, at least all that was shown in the video, can also be done in Lightroom and in Canon Print Studio pro.
Ok, it is easy to download profiles for paper and ink, but these are still canned profiles which can also be downloaded from the manufacturer of the paper.

So, why should I spend 500US$ for this ?

If LR works for you great.  I don't use the LR workflow since I use Capture ne, go to Tiff and then have a master tiff to use whenever needed.  Plus in my opinion for what its worth is that Colorbyte profiles are incredibly good.  I get great images anytime I use IP.  That's enough for me and it works.
