Professional photographers openly share what they need, want, and even don't want in a printer. Like stunning black and white prints with deep blacks and detailed gradations. A wide colour gamut that accurately reproduces even the most difficult colours. And at Canon, we listen.
Introducing the Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000. A 17" wide format professional printer with an 11-Colour plus Chroma Optimizer ink system that does it all. Arguably one of the best printers we’ve ever engineered. Distinguished by a bold red line.

The FINE print head institutes a tubular ink delivery system. This generates faster print speeds and reduces the possibility of clogging. Additionally, ink ejection conditions are precisely checked with sensors, and if a clog is detected, another nozzle automatically provides backup. In addition to preventing wasted prints due to clogging, this also reduces the frequency of which nozzle cleaning is required.
Engineered with 18,432 nozzles and sensors that continuously monitor status and deliver optimum results.
AIR FEEDING SYSTEM:
The Canon Air Feeding System prevents each page from skewing for accurate ink placement, regardless of paper type. A series of openings located on top of the platen vacuum-grip the paper as it feeds through the printer. The Air Feeding system creates a printing environment that keeps a consistent height between the print head and the media being used. Variances in height can occur due to paper curl or variations in temperature and humidity. A consistent level surface leads to remarkable ink droplet accuracy and improved image quality.

Skew Correction function guarantees that all types of paper, including thick fine art type papers, can be fed without the need for reprints.
LUCIA PRO INK SYSTEM:
The LUCIA PRO 11-colour plus Chroma Optimizer ink system satisfies the demands of the most critical photographer or graphic artist. Denser droplet placement provides a broader colour gamut and improved gloss uniformity for superb glossiness and anti-bronzing. Incredibly accurate colour reproduction, outstanding image clarity, and enhanced detail in darker areas distinguish each print. On fine art papers, higher black density renders even the finest shadow detail, for a print that becomes a work of art.
11-INK SYSTEM PLUS CHROMA OPTIMIZER
Utilizing new pigment ink with modified compositions and new colours, LUCIA PRO INKS have enabled a broader colour gamut and greater shadow detail reproduction in dark areas.
LUCIA PRO INKS
• Increased density of ink on the paper improves colour gamut.
• Even light reflection contributes to improved glossiness and image clarity.
• Contributes to anti-bronzing on glossy paper.
BLACK DENSITY AND DARK SHADOW AREAS:
Deep blacks, which make the image crisp, and precise gradation can be attained across all media types. On glossy media, light reflection off of a printed image is stabilized by the Chroma Optimizer and the newly formulated Photo Black ink. Overall, your images will enjoy an enhanced dynamic range.
The print head, ink and image processing engine mounted on the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 provide high levels of image quality and productivity.
WIDE COLOUR GAMUT:
A new ink system adopts 11-colour inks and Chroma Optimizer ink. This system helps you achieve an improvement in colour-reproduction, image clarity, and enhanced darker areas. It faithfully reproduces colours and dark areas crucial for printing works of art. The newly formulated blue and magenta inks will help recreate the finest details when printing nightscapes and sunsets.
NO SWITCHING OF BLACK INKS:
On other printers, switching from Matte Black to Photo Black consumes a significant amount of ink and time. The imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is designed to work seamlessly when changing media types. Matte Black and Photo Black inks have their own dedicated nozzles, so no switching is necessary. You can print on fine art paper then glossy paper with no worries, no changes, and no waste.
FAST PHOTO PRINTING:
At the heart of the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 is a 1.28" wide print head. Expanding the printing area by 50% with each movement of the print head, print speeds are drastically improved. This increases your productivity through efficient high-speed printing.
This high-precision control engine performs the high-speed processing of massive volumes of image data, generates the printing data, and controls the optimal ink layout for the purpose of achieving high resolution prints. It represents the brain of the imagePROGRAF PRO-1000.
