Canon's LUCIA EX Ink set is designed for dramatic photographic expression and detailed color reproduction for exacting proofing applications. This 8-Color ink set offers a brilliant range of vibrant colors, smooth gradations and transitions, with incredibly fine details. This specially formulated ink also offers scratch resistance, superb black reproduction and exceptional color stability. Combined with the printer's technologies, the LUCIA EX inks have the ability to satisfy the demanding needs of the Commercial Photography, Signage Display, Color Proofing and Production professionals. Vibrant, rich colors with unsurpassed detail and crisp, clean monotone images make this ink set essential for incredible quality output.
This feature also gives users the ability to:
- Remotely monitor/execute color calibrations for all iPFX400S series printers on network, as well as be able to schedule remote calibrations based on system needs.
- Determine the media type loaded in each device on the network.
- Determine the serial number of the printer device and other general information.
- Obtain accounting information from each printer on the network.
- Access the Status Monitor for each printer on the network.
This printer includes an upgraded, built-in color multi-sensor that's designed to offer even more precise calibration and color matching. Using a three-color LED and a recently developed condenser lens the sensor enables accurate recalibration of the device, allowing users to maintain a low average printer-to-printer color difference. Automatic color calibration is finished quickly after a few simple steps on the printer's operation panel, or remotely via the Color Calibration Management Console software. A single color calibration performed with one type of media can be applied to Canon media in all printing modes.
Utilizing the included sub-ink tanks, the iPF8400S printer keeps some ink in reserve so that even when the physical ink tanks run out of ink, printing can continue without interruption and the tanks can be replaced on the fly.
The Draft Mode produces 1200 x 1200 dpi output at up to 381ft2/hr on coated and uncoated paper stocks while reducing ink consumption by 10% to 20% versus standard mode. This mode regulates the use of Photo Cyan and Photo Magenta inks to produce quality output at a lower total cost.
Help reduce total ink consumption by utilizing the Economy Printing Mode for producing draft prints on select media. This feature helps increase overall speed and regulates the use of all colors to produce quick check plots while minimizing the cost per print.
A built-in 250GB hard drive within the printer helps increase productivity by relieving workload from the host PC, while providing a large capacity for print job data storage and retrieval. This 250GB hard drive enables job data to be stored in protected mailboxes for easy access via web browser or at the printer for job re-printing. The embedded hard disk is ideal for medium to large workgroups to share a printer efficiently with multiple users, offering sample job storage space. To help ensure security of your files, there is a quick erase mode, high-speed mode, and a secure erase mode which meets to U.S. Department of Defense requirements (DoD5022.22-M Compliant) for erasure of disk media.

Tracks how much ink and media is being consumed when printing. Costs can be assigned to ink and paper to determine expenses based on "Cost of goods". The user can also input a variable cost that will be added to the total of the print cost. The data is exportable to a .csv format for Microsoft Excel so the data can be used for billing purposes.

This export module allows 16-bit image processing, preserving the expanded color spectrum and high gradation of the file. The Print Plug-in also helps reduce the possibility of incorrect settings, by providing an integrated interface for print settings in Photoshop and the printer driver, enabling efficient production.
The new Adjustment Pattern Setting feature allows for multiples of an image to be printed with different color settings in order to choose the color that most closely matches what you need, and the Gallery Wrap Feature allows for the creation of gallery wrap prints for framing and display.
This creative tool can be accessed via Adobe Photoshop (not included) and allows users to easily create gallery wrap prints for framing, as well as creative options that will expand output possibilities.
- Crop Marks: These lines are a guide for folding the paper for mounting.
- Edge Lines: The area outside these lines is the area that gets folded around to the back of the canvas. (Not actually displayed or printed)
- Blue Lines: The area within these lines is the area that appears on the front surface of the canvas when mounted. (not actually printed)
- Canvas Thickness: This area becomes the sides of the canvas when mounted. Amount of extension- This is the region that is printed protruding excessively in order to prevent white areas appearing on the sides of the canvas.
You can choose the effect you would like on the canvas that would be wrapped on the frame.
- Image: Wraps the image to the canvas sides.
- Soft Image:Performs Gaussian filtering on the image on the canvas sides.
- Reflection:Reflects the image on the canvas sides.
- Soft Reflection: Reflects the image on the canvas sides and performs Gaussian filtering.
- White, Black or Color Makes the canvas sides white, Black or a custom color
Recognizing the expanding array of media options for large format printers and to further improve the versatility of these new imagePROGRAF models, Canon has developed a Media Configuration Tool, which allows customers to not only utilize Canon-branded media, but provides the ability to make adjustments to printer settings to enhance the precision and quality of output achieved with non Canon branded media.
Settings that can be configured using media parameter adjustment features include:
- Media weight and thickness
- Ink drying
- Automatic cutting settings
- Borderless printing
- Paper feed amount
- Print-head height
- Vacuum strength
- Maximum ink usage
This utility makes it easy to print large-format documents created in Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. The Plug-in appears in a tool bar inside the Microsoft application and has an easy-to-follow "Wizard". The Plug-in will bypass the printer driver to simplify the printing process. A few simple steps convert your 8.5" x 11" office document to poster size.
For those with more demanding poster creation needs, Canon's optional PosterArtist offers advanced features such as Auto Design, Variable Data, and in-application image editing features, as well as additional templates, royalty-free photos, and clip art. The built-in weblink feature in PosterArtist Lite links users directly to the PosterArtist website for useful hints and tips, and even more free contents for download.
