iPF6450 with optional SU-21 Spectrophotometer unit

Collected Canon iPFx4xx printer reviews – the 6400/6450

After a lot of testing, I’ve published a whole series of reviews connected with the Canon iPF6450 24″ wide format printer.

The iPF6450 is essentially the same as the iPF6400, but with an internal hard disk.  The iPF8400 and iPF9400 are the 44″ and 60″ versions of the printer.

The SU-21 spectrophotometer unit and several papers are also covered in separate articles [it only works with the iPF6450]

There are four short paper reviews I’ve written based on the testing

The 12 ink iPF6450 spent a while here, so please do feel free to ask if you have any questions?

I’ve tested the full range of large Canon printers, from the iPF6100 and iPF6300 right up to the 2016 PRO-2000, the successor to the iPF6450.

    Unfortunately if this happens with a paper (and you are definitely using the right black ink) then the only real way is to find an alternative paper.

    Have a look at some of the Innova range, which are what I use here in the UK for such prints.

    Hi there – thanks for all your articles. I have a Canon ipf6400 which is great – and printing on hahnemuhle photo rag 308gsm – its gorgeous. However, I find when printing black (ish) background images from our studio, they are exceptionally easily damaged. Literally one touch and the ink can lift off. The framer is damaging them easily, causing us to reprint. Have you any thoughts or tips?
