Booksmart Studio Acquires a Canon ipf8300

Highest level printing technology available now at Booksmart Studio

Booksmart Studio is proud to announce the acquisition of a Canon iPF8300 to add to our selection of wide-format fine art printers. Booksmart Studio now owns both Canon iPF8300 and the Canon iPF6300, which is used for smaller prints. The reason Canon printers are the preferred printer for Booksmart Studio is due to their wide color gamut, deep blacks, and 16-bit tonal gradation for all color channels. The Canon iPF8300 has an improved D-Max and color gamut with an improvement in their 12 color ink system. The Canon iPF8300 Lucia EX inks have a 20% wider color gamut and higher D-Max than the Epson 9900 and the HP Z3200.

Booksmart Studio still has the range of Epson & HP printers in our studio. However, we are now printing 75% of our work stricly on the Canon iPF series printers due to the nature of their quality. We have the ability to use the HP Z3200 & Epson 9900 printers if your work demands the use of these printers. At Booksmart Studio we always try to match the artwork & photography with the correct paper & printer combination that maximizes the aesthetic of your work.

Full Description of the Canon iPF8300

Built for ultra high quality imaging and exceptional performance, the imagePROGRAF iPF8300 44″ large format printer is equipped with an array of professional features. The re-formulated 12-color LUCIA pigment ink system increases the achievable color gamut by approximately 20% from the previous imagePROGRAF 12-color series. A large 80GB hard drive, sub-ink tank system, Gigabit Ethernet support and Accounting Manager feature make this a premier solution for the fine art, photography and proofing markets. To fully utilize on the dynamic color range of the LUCIA EX ink set, a high-precision printing mode delivers quality a step above the previously available highest quality mode. And with the Print Plug-in for Photoshop, now with support for Adobe CMM, users can process images in 16-bit. For more control over the final output, the Media Configuration Tool expands on Canon’s array of media options, allowing users to input profiles for third party media. By combining Canon’s technological achievements, the imagePROGRAF iPF8300 achieves consistently breathtaking, durable and long lasting prints.
