The new imagePROGRAF PRO-2100 printer building on the success of the PRO-2000 the new model is much faster, more secure, boasts a larger 4.3" touch screen display & better media handling with auto media detection. Additionally te transparent roll feed & top viewing window allows users to check print quality during operation.
LUCIA PRO pigment ink
LUCIA PRO pigment ink is newly developed for the imagePROGRAF PRO series to deliver printing with a wide colour gamut, excellent colour expression, superior dark area reproduction, low graininess, and good gloss characteristics.
Advanced precision print head
The new imagePROGRAF PRO series 12-colour, fully integrated print head enables even faster printing with exceptional print quality. At a compact 1.28” wide, enabling efficient, high-precision ink ejection without discrepancies.
New – Rigid platform for best quality
imagePROGRAF PRO series printers feature a brand new mechanical platform. The highly innovative chassis structure provides an exceptionally rigid frame that can maintain a precise distance between the print head and media – virtually eliminating oscillation for high-precision ink placement with little inter-colour discrepancy.
Dual roll unit
The optional RU-21 dual roll unit provides either an additional paper roll online or can function as a media take-up unit for printed output. Media take-up can be performed with the printed surface either on the inside or on the outside.
Canon's Chroma Optimizer ink technology helps to achieve uniform glossiness when printing on gloss paper. Applied over the printed image transparent Chroma Optimizer regulates the surface reflection to deliver natural colour reproduction in the finished print. This creates images with deep black density and prevents unwanted bronzing in your prints.
Consistent colour reproduction is achieved between print jobs, compensating for any variation due to differences among printers or changes over time.
Automatic media sensing & better media handling. Offering full automated loading -with full Artifical Intelligence; the Canon PRO-2100 detects how much media is left on the roll even on thick art media.
Crystal-fidelity output quality
The full structure, clarity and texture of photographs shot using Canon’s EOS digital cameras can be faithfully reproduced on paper, in unique Crystal-fidelity quality, using Canon’s Print Studio Pro plug-in.
Great selection of software
The software bundled with imagePROGRAF PRO series printers support a wide range of large-format and advanced printing solutions, with features to optimise the efficiency of printing environments. More importantly, the software is fully cross-platform, supporting both Windows and Apple Macintosh computers.
Canon’s Print Plug-In for Photoshop provides the perfect interface between your Photoshop images and your imagePROGRAF PRO-2100 printer. It enables 16-bit image files to be transferred directly to your printer, maintaining the wide gamut and exceptional graduation of your original images.

Canon Pro-2100 Review
The Canon Pro-2100 builds on the success of the Canon Pro Series platform with multiple design & productivity tweaks over the Pro-2000, the 2000 had replaced a 3rd generation ageing platform and brought many innovations & improvemnets to the Canon Graphic Arts imagePrograf range.
Existing users of older style iPF-6100 iPF-6300 & iPF6400 will be delighted at the increased productivity driven by a single 1.28" width printhead, delivering ink more quickly & more productively than older models and in the case of the Pro-2100 a noticable speed update from the 2000 as well.
For Print Service Providers and for Creatives whom care about quality and productivity the Pro-2100 introduces AI (Artificial intelligence) through it's media handling, sounds gimicky but it can significantly reduce cost & time. Creative people who use more than one substrate and whom flick betwen rolls will be delighted to find that this printer series teaches it's self their media selection so when swapping between rolls medias are scanned and the correct profile is selected from previous history automatically applying the users preferred settings, in addition the width of the roll is measured so part roll lenghts are known before deciding to continue with a print - significantly reducing wastage.
The new model offers a larger 4.3" screen, that can show the type of media being used, and and new physical buttons that allow users to quickly 'Load', 'Feed' and 'Cut'
Mechainically the machine is around 20% quicker than the old Pro-2000 (in fast mode) & design wise the paneling now features clear windows so that users can see paper being fed from the roll and a top viewing window reassures users that the printer is printing from the get-go
Well we are biased and make no apologies for it, we do have a soft spot for the Canon range and with multiple photographers in the business including an award winning one along with the odd artist we do consider ourselves to be firmly on the side of creative people & businesses.
For us the canon delivers good value for money and the best ROI for this type of product, ink cost tend to be lower than alternatives due to much reduced wasted ink than that of other platforms, the head can be changed by users so no costly technician on-site labour charges and as well ongoing service cost is as a consequence much lower.
We can never fault the quality of output through a very wide-range of medias and Canon have done a great job at allowing media manufacturers access to product so off the shelf profiles can be created to make life easier for all users.
As ADOBE users we have found Canon have gone above & beyond with their FREE plug-ins including cost calculators, stretcher bar wrap functions again making the entire user journey much easier.
This printer does not disappoint and we rate it highly for affordability, speed and user experience.
