Differences in Canon's imagePROGRAF PRO Series Printers

What’s a multifunction roll? The multifunction roll option allows users to have 2 different types of media on board and ready to print without having to change the roll. Additionally, these can serve as a take-up reel for larger jobs. Multifunction units are also sold separately and can be added on at a later date if the user decides at a later date that they would like to add this option to their single roll printer.

What’s the difference between 8-color vs 11-color plus Chroma Optimizer? More colors means more gamut. Increased color gamut is more important for photographers and those needing very high quality color. The S option offers good color, but not to the level most photographers demand. However, PRO-S versions are great for poster printing, POS and signage.
