Canon Pro-4100 with internal densitometer: Sufficient for ICC profiles?

I realise that the Pro-4100 has an internal densitometer to assist with calibration of the printer based on a "canned" paper profile from the manufacturer, and that this is different from a spectrophotometer (as the HP Z9+ has). My question: Do I still need to purchase a spectrophotometer to calibrate the printer (or more likely send out to somebody to do the ICC profiles for me)?

Canon in the UK tells me "No" (detailed response available if interested) and this video also seems to suggest "No.":

I see there are other current threads on here about custom ICC profiles, but this is specific to whether the Canon internal densitometer renders this process unnecessary.

Papers would be Hahnemuhle BTW.

Thank for your guidance!

Best regards,

Nathan
