Given that their livelihood depends on the successful reproduction of their work, professional photographers are constantly on the lookout for good features in the printers they use. Without a good printer, a photographer can share their work digitally but not in its physical format — limiting the scope of their prospective audience. Canon’s new imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 fulfills all of the professional photographer’s standard wants and needs from inkjet printers — and even checks boxes some might not have even known they had.
What makes a quality printer? A good printer is able to achieve a fine balance: it provides reliable, quick printing for its user that will not cause paper clogging, a dreaded time and money waster. The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000’s FINE print head offers a tubular ink delivery system, which provides ink ejection that remains closely monitored by sensors all throughout the printing process. These sensors are able to detect whether a paper clog is imminent, and will quickly offer backup with another nozzle if this is the case. Not only does this help prevent clogs from ruining your paper, it will also minimize the amount of time that you will ultimately spend cleaning the nozzles. The imagePROFGRAF PRO-1000 was engineered with 18,423 nozzles and sensors, to be exact, which will constantly monitor printing jobs and ensure work will be printed in optimal quality.
Photographers who find themselves constantly on-the-go and running from shoot-to-shoot will also want to know: just how fast can the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 print? The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 was built with a 1.28” print head, which works wonders for the printer’s speed. With each movement of the print head, the printing area is widened by a whopping 50% — allowing for rushed photographers to print their work when they have only minutes to spare.
You can now purchase the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 for $1,599.99, and gain access to these features and much, more more.
