Re: 8 Bit or 16 bit , sRGB or Pro Photo

Canon's Pro1000 XPS driver does not print using 16 bits in Windows 10 on my system. And Canon's Print Studio Pro doesn't print 16 bits either even though there is an option that supposedly does that.

After your declaration I posed this question to Canon CPS, asking about the XPS driver and the data sent from the software to the printer. I asked if the data was read as 16 bit into the software , and then sent as 8 bit to the ImagePrograf Pro 1000. I cut and paste the reply from Canon CPS today :-

Thank you for your request and for contacting Canon.

The 16-bit XPS driver will send 16 bit data to the printer when used with a 16 bit capable software such as Adobe Photoshop.

Gear ... what I need to get the job done , after all you don't see mechanics listing their brand of spanner as a qualification .
