With the imagePROGRAF iPF5100 Large Format Printer, brilliant color, sophisticated print-head technology, and high speed output are all brought together into a high-performance large format printing-system. With features designed to help all levels of users achieve extraordinary results, the iPF5100 printer is the ideal solution for any color professional looking for striking, full-bleed color output with strength in paper handling and exceptional speed in output.

The iPF5100 printer is engineered to produce colors, fine details, and subtle expressions required for some of the most challenging color environments such as photography, proofing and professional graphic applications. The new iPF5100 printer is equipped with the ability to recalibrate itself to the original factory settings and apply any necessary adjustments across the printer's media types. The result, a more predictable printing platform where results can be consistently achieved. The 12-color pigment ink system with LUCIA inks offers excellent color fastness and stability with a remarkably wide color gamut. The new ink formulation for Black, Matte Black, Gray and Photo Gray reduces bronzing, while providing stronger ink adhesion to the print media, resulting in better scratch resistance without any additional protection. The Canon L-COA processor, which is dedicated to the imagePROGRAF, is designed to optimize the best quality output at the highest possible speeds. Vivid breathtaking, long lasting prints are achieved by combining Canon's advanced technological achievements. The iPF5100 is designed for reliability, simplicity, productivity and above all, quality.

Product Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by 8reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great printer I like it. It prints well, and the ncolors are good. October 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by You won't be dissappointed B & W prints the best I've seen so far.This printer is a breeze to install, easy to use and gives prints that amaze. For me it has been an incentive to take even better photographs. I use mostly the Premium Matte paper and the textures are better than I thought was possible. I held out for quite a while to buy until the prices dropped and the pigment inks got better. I waited before I wrote this review and my opinion is the same, usually I find some dissapointments, but so far I'm really glad I bought this one. January 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Flexability of in house printing and control I have been using this printer for all our studio's work so thousands of 8 1/2x10 prints have gone through it. When I looked at all the information I could on printers, to replace another brand I had, the only thing I was a little concerned about was the footprint and working with and learning this new printer. It is build like a tank. I have had no problems that knowledge didn't cure,I must say I have used Canon's Technical Support 800 number many times. This alone has been extremely helpful and resolved any issue I was having with their expert help. It would be helpful to have a hard copy manual, too. I could print it out or look at it on line but this printer demands a nice manual. My time is my most valuable asset.This iPf5100 prints wonderfully on anything I have printed from RC papers, fine are papers & canvas, sheets or rolls. The prints created from it for International Prfessional Competitions have done very well, too. This printer and it's versatiliy has allowed me to change my product line in such a way that I never know what I will do next to keep my customers happy.Someone once told me it you want a print what is different from pushing a button to send the print order to the lab or to send it to the Canon printer. It saves me time on the initial order and on redos of an order that occur because we are very picky about our work quaility.Seldom do I rate something unless I feel very strongly about it. My whole operation is color balanced to have a working flow that I can see the result prior to printing. I have a Canon that spits out perfect prints. December 12, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by DO NOT UPGRADE TO 1.38 FIRMWARE If printheads start to clog with ver 1.35 you can bypass and continue printing with NO streaking or other issues.With ver 1.38 as soon as it even thinks it has a clog, you cannot even run a head test. December 7, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Value I have used the iPF5100 and the iPF6100 for over a year now. These two printers consistently out put some of my best works. The color saturation is unbelievable and the black and white prints are the best I have seen with any printer. I have total control of full tonal quality of my black and whites. The only con about the iPF5100 is that the foot print is much larger than it's competition's. You will need a good size table or purchase Canons metal cabinet. What I like most about these two printers are the fact that they do not require any maintenance; except for a few free software updates once a while. Oh, yes, I do have to dust them off from time to time. I highly recommend this imagePrograf printers for anyone who wants to print big. October 13, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding print quality As a pro photographer I'm pleased with print quality September 26, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product I researched long and hard before I bought this printer. I have to say it paid off! I am extremely happy with my Canon iPF 5100. Colors and print quality is better than what I was getting from the lab. This is partly because I have better control over the paper I use. In addition, prints are relatively inexpensive so if I want a re-print with changes it's fast and easy. The printer is BIG and it requires some space, but what would you expect with a large format printer? We are looking to buy one or two more as well as the iPF 6100. September 21, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Photographer I have found this printer a wonderful item to have for fast turn around to my customers. The prints are sharp and clear as if produced by my lab. The ability to provide my customers with a product quickly is spreading by word of mouth. February 14, 2009
