Canon has a new top-of-the-line printer—it's the ImagePROGRAF iPF9000, a 60-inch wide super-large-format inkjet printer with 12 individual pigment ink cartridges. Aimed at production houses and print-for-pay establishments, it has a number of nifty features said to streamline production and maximize uptime, principally a fast dual-printhead system that I don't understand and thus won't attempt to explain. Among its other capabilities are that you can swap out ink carts while it's printing, so that an expiring cartridge won't ruin a print in progress, and it has a paper-cutting device Canon says will never need sharpening or replacing.
I personally won't be getting one, but only because it won't fit on top of the filing cabinet.
