Canon iPF5000The Canon iPF5000 is a 17” (A2+) large-format inkjet printer which has a new 12-colour full pigment ink system. Additional RGB colours ensure a wider colour gamut, and grey and photo grey inks ensure better graduation, reduced granularity and high colour accuracy and consistency. Jon Canfield finds out if the Canon iPF5000 lives up to its promise in our latest review.

It would be nice to print 6 x 4 from the cassete and as a real bonus print a cd/dvd label. I want to replace my current printer with this one! not find room for a very large new printer!

Thanks for the ipf5000 review. I've recently bought one and am still trying to find the best combination of profiles and media, etc.

I've found that when you have a certain sheet of watercolour paper to use, and you find it's description in the media menu – you're told you can't use it because they intend that weight to roll-fed only.
Any hints and tips gratefully received. I'm using CS3 on Mac OS 10.5.3

This printer is capable of outstanding quality, but it's let down by poor documentation, less than perfect software, and terrible support by Canon.

Good review, I'm currently thinking about replacing my pro9500 with a larger format printer, the review held good information and other peoples comments make me think i'll have the same issues with the 17" as I have had with my current model.
