Consistently achieve superior results
Canon understands that reliable, accurate
color reproduction is a top priority for photographic and graphic arts professionals. With
groundbreaking technology built into the
iPF5100 printer, professionals can now
unleash their full creative potential and
achieve spectacular results.
BUILT-IN CALIBRATION MEANS YOU GET
THE COLORS YOU EXPECT
When it comes to producing color-accurate
reprints or managing output across multiple
printers, the iPF5100 printer’s built-in
calibration function helps to ensure that
you’ll get the results you expect.
LUCIA INK IN A SPECTRUM OF 12 COLORS
Superior performance begins with the
iPF5100 printer’s 12-color ink set with
LUCIA pigment inks. This printer’s broad
color pallet includes Red, Blue, Green, Cyan,
Photo Cyan, Magenta, Photo Magenta, and
Yellow plus four monochromatic shades:
Black, Matte Black, Gray, and Photo Gray.
Canon’s durable LUCIA pigment inks are
chemically formulated to improve print
quality on a wide range of media.
Unlike the complex and time-consuming
color calibration normally required in
professional settings, the iPF5100 printer
will reset itself back to the original, optimal
factory settings for the printer’s media
types—in just minutes. This easy-to-use
feature helps compensate for adverse
environmental conditions while providing
a stable platform for color management
with consistent color reproduction.
KYUANOS: NEXT-GENERATION COLOR
MANAGEMENT
Canon’s next-generation Kyuanos high-precision color management system delivers
output color suitable for different viewing
conditions, such as fluorescent lights,
incandescent lights, or sunlight. Kyuanos
incorporates the advanced Ambient Light
Adjustment Function for select media,*
which optimizes output for differences
in lighting conditions for consistent color
in accordance with different lighting
environments.
• Engineered for longevity: LUCIA inks are
recommended for photo, fine art printing,
and proofing applications.
• Reduced graininess: Ink coverage and
density are optimized to minimize the
beading that can cause images to appear
grainy. The unique composition of the
iPF5100 printer’s ink reduces graininess—
even on glossy media.
• Minimizes bronzing: Each pigment particle
is coated with a resin, which helps the ink
to lay down smoother on the media’s surface
so light reflects off the print more evenly
and bronzing is reduced.
• Improved scratch resistance: The
resin coating also helps the ink to form
a stronger bond with the media. This helps
LUCIA inks to affix to the media, making
them less likely to peel, scratch, or crack—
an important advantage, especially when
producing display-quality prints.

High performance to get the job done
The user-friendly functions of the iPF5100
printer seamlessly integrate with a highspeed print engine to produce the ultra-highquality images that professionals demand.
FAST, PRECISE PRINTING
Driving data to the iPF5100 printer and
optimizing print functions is Canon’s
advanced L-COA processor. This highspeed processor intelligently manages
the high-volume data required for displaying
quality large-format graphics and directs
the precision high-density print-heads with
unprecedented speed.
The iPF5100 printer has two one-inch printheads with a total of 30,720 nozzles—2,560
nozzles per color—for fast printing, up to
2400 x 1200 dpi, and precise placement of
tiny 4pl droplets of ink.
BOOST YOUR PRODUCTIVITY
In addition to its speed and quality, Canon
has implemented other enhancements
to the iPF5100 printer to help maximize
productivity in busy work environments.
Its manual top-feeding design improves
performance, while a refined printing
sequence delivers accelerated throughput
overall. Plus, a new, quieter platen fan and
sound-absorbing material added to the inner
wall of intake ducts in the iPF5100 printer
combine to yield quieter operation for a
more comfortable working environment.
SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS THAT ARE SIMPLE
TO USE AND EXPAND YOUR CAPABILITIES
Canon opens a world of new possibilities
with workflow solutions for photography
and graphic arts applications. The following
software solutions are available with the
iPF5100 printer to provide users of all levels

The system’s wide color gamut and
interchangeable black inks produce richer,
deeper tones, and more realistic images.
Canon’s durable LUCIA pigmented inks are
chemically formulated to further reduce
graininess, minimize “bronzing,”and resist
scratching and fading. These features,
combined with the iPF5100 printer’s high-resolution output and precise placement of a
tiny 4pl droplet mean that display-quality
photo enlargements and portraits can be

iPF5100 printer’s built-in calibration features
you can always get the results you expect.
PROOFING
A set of workflow and print technologies
make the iPF5100 printer one of the most
efficient and fastest proofing devices
available. The wide color gamut enabled
by the 12-color ink set means that a greater
range of colors can be reproduced. The
stability of Canon’s LUCIA pigmented inks
increase the reliability of the proof as the
prints will exhibit little or no perceptible
color shift. Canon’s patented 30,720 nozzle
2400 x 1200 dpi print-head technology
delivers clear images, smooth transitions,
and solid fills required for professional
proofing applications.
GRAPHIC ARTS APPLICATIONS
The iPF5100 printer is equipped with
software applications and advanced
printing technologies to expand the range
of print possibilities to include posters,

template-driven PosterArtist 2007 software
helps users of all levels to design and print
a wide variety of large-format graphics. A
wide range of media—including a variety
of papers, adhesive-backed materials, and
films—make it possible to create a diverse
range of large-format applications. Highspeed throughput means that deadlines
can be met and full production runs can
be produced on time.
