Canon Innovations Inside
ARCHIVAL LUCIA INKS AND LUCIA EX INKS
Canon’s specially formulated LUCIA pigment inks have outstanding archival characteristics. By coating each pigment particle with a special polymer compound, Canon has increased the ink’s resistance to fading and scratching. These specially formulated inks also improve image quality by reducing graininess and bronzing—so prints look great from every angle.
ENGINEERED FOR EXCELLENCE
The high-speed L-COA controller channels output through two one-inch print-heads, each with 2,560 nozzles per color for a total of 30,720 nozzles. Superfine 4pl ink droplets and print resolutions of up to 2400 dpi produce the delicate color gradation and the high-definition expression required by fine art applications and professional photographers.
Unlike the complex and time-consuming calibration normally required in professional settings, Canon offers a simplified process that enables easy recalibration back to the original, optimal factory settings across all the printers’ media types.
