Extraordinary print results

Striking prints up to A2
Enjoy the ability to print striking, borderless images up to A2 without compromising quality. Take advantage of fast print speeds and colour accuracy: with a variety of media types supported – from gloss, matte, fine art papers and canvas – you’re guaranteed to get the look and feel you desire.
More detail and colour than before
With a new LUCIA PRO 12-ink system your images will be faithfully reproduced in print. A newly developed micro capsuled material for LUCIA PRO ink achieves higher levels of colour, with a broader colour gamut and more detail than before. A wide dynamic range of colours and detail in darker areas will help capture all the subtleties of your photography, from 4×6” prints right up to A2.
Improved light reflection and reduced bronzing
Canon’s Chroma Optimizer ink technology helps to achieve uniform glossiness when printing on glossy paper. By being applied over the printed image 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.
Superb Black and White Prints
You can produce fantastic black & white prints with neutral tones thanks to the LUCIA PRO ink system’s four dedicated monochrome inks – photo black, matt black, grey and photo grey.
High-speed results with superb ease-of-use
Professional and functional design
The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 printer inherits the red line from the EOS series – a symbol of exceptional quality. With a professional and functional design this desktop model is sure to inspire professional and amateur photographers alike. It features a rigid chassis to ensure accurate ink ejection and an additional manual feed tray lets you work with heavier paper types.
Increased efficiency for high volume use
Large capacity 80ml ink tanks reduce the need for frequent ink changes and a simple-to-replace maintenance cartridge increase efficiency for high volume print users. All 12 inks are easily loaded from the front of the printer and are housed behind a flip down cover.
Save ink and time
Exclusive matte black and photo black nozzles prevent wasting of ink and time when switching based on the media type being used.
