PRINTER’S NOTE: The Canon imagePROGRAF iPF780 MFP offers more features than the Canon IPF780. The MFP (multi-function printer) version can scan-to-copy and make files quickly and easily with a touch-screen monitor, making it a cinch to archive maps, proofs, and posters.

Canon imagePROGRAF iPF780 Cloud-Ready

Canon’s downloadable cloud-based portal, Direct Print & Share 2.0, allows you to upload, download, print and share files from virtually any location via the internet. Just log on to your Google, Carbonite or Rackspace cloud storage account. There’s no need to be chained to your desktop computer anymore, either. With Canon’s new downloadable mobile printing app, imagePROGRAF Print Utility, you can print PDFs from your iPad© or other mobile devices via an internet connection. Canon also designed shortcut print feature into Direct Print & Share that lets you print by just dragging and dropping files onto your designated shortcuts. You can also batch print multiple pdf, tif, or jpg files without having to open them in their original application.

The new iPF780 includes Canon’s 130ml and offers the option of a large capacity 300ml ink tank. The 300ml size not only lets you print much longer between changes but also reduces your large format printing costs. In fact, large format plotting customers can save as much as 30% on ink usage costs by upgrading to a new Canon 780 plotter. Here’s another reason to make the switch: Ink tanks can be swapped out on the fly—a huge plus when you’ve got a long print run and don’t want to jeopardize print quality by having to stop a job mid-print. 

Canon imagePROGRAF iPF780 Reformulated Magenta Ink

Canon has reformulated its magenta ink and the results are quite impressive. Not only are reds more vivid, but so are yellows. CAD drawing and architectural renderings print with noticeably greater vibrancy. Additionally, Canon’s 5-color dye-and-pigment ink system yields exceptionally sharp, thin lines with a minimum line width of .02mm and accuracy to +/- .1%. The high-resolution printouts of the iPF780 are attributable to its 15,360 inkjet nozzles precisely spraying out droplets a mere 4 picoliters in size—so small as to not even be visible by the bare eye.
