Canon CP review


Review summary The Canon CP-330 dye-sub photo printer is pretty, portable, and &siteid=7&edid= &lop=txt&destcat=ex&destUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ecipa%2Ejp%2Fenglish%2Fpictbridge%2F">PictBridge compatible. It doesn't have some of the features we've come...

Fine print quality; fast; adorable and portable; rechargeable battery pack included; allows direct printing from digital cameras.

Expensive; included ink ribbon prints only five photos; no LCD or media slots; no editing software; printing process takes a lot of physical space.

The CP-330 doesn't have any whiz-bang features, but its compact design and quality output make it a reasonable choice among portable photo printers.

If you need a portable printer, the CP-220 is an excellent choice. During the review no glitches occurred and the prints were generally of high quality. The prints are waterproof and fingerprint resistant which is something that may be very useful if...

Canon CP-220


I bought this printer because I'm not always able to get back to my relatives in time to give them shots of their kids. It's something I can fit in my camera bag and print off when my girlfriend wants something to scrap-book. I have yet to be...

Quick, convenient, fun, small and not that expensive for the printer itself. cost per print varies from about 40 - 50+ cents depending on where you buy paperpacks

sometimes the first prints show signs of dust accumulation, causing white spots, only on the first photo, though. As with all printers, cost per print is a bit higher that at having someone else do it, but that's the price for convenience I guess.

Printer has an excellent product but doesn't work as advertised.

Excellant print quality. Prints one photo in 85 seconds and this type of printing never smears.

Printer does not print on a full time basis.

85 Seconds, Not One Hour, For Great Prints!!


Size, Price, Paper sizes and online pricing.

Support, Overheating, Local Pricing for Supplies too high.

Great results from a small mobile printer.Buying supplies local can be expensive.

supplies can be costly if purchased locally rather than online.

Product Specifications

The dream of every digital camera owner has arrived: the ability to produce vibrant, high-gloss, professional quality prints on sturdy photo-grade stock right in your own home, and all without a computer in sight. The CP-220 Compact Photo Printer connects direct to any PictBridge or Canon Direct Print compatible camera and begins printing your favorite images within seconds of you taking the shot - it could not be easier. Dye-sublimation printing technology produces durable, fade resistant photographs with a final high-gloss protective coating, similar in look and feel to traditional, professionally produced silver halide prints. The CP-220 offers a choice of print sizes: the enduring and popular 10x15 cm postcard size, the new wide 10x20 cm size, the credit card size, and mini-stickers. Ink cassettes with exactly the right amount of ink are sold with each lot of paper. Borderless 10x15 cm prints only take approx. 85 seconds to print. Never before has a printer been given such a chic and compact design. A contemporary finish complements clean and stylish lines to create a work of art that looks right at home in the coolest living space. The CP-220 supports all the new direct print features offered by selected Canon digital cameras, including ID photo for passport style photographs, and Movie Printing which allows sequential frames of video clips to be printed - ideal for instantly checking a golf swing or tennis serve. For those wishing to print from their computer, Windows and Macintosh drivers come as standard. For printing on the road, an optional car adaptor kit is available.
