Selphy CP770


Canon's bucket-shaped Selphy CP770 looks like something you'd fill with sand--but don't! This self-contained snapshot printer is cute and easy to tote, which makes up somewhat for other shortcomings.

Cute, self-contained design Inexpensive

Costly, complex consumables Slow; yellowish images

The chief reason to buy the Selphy CP770 is for the fun factor. Though the dye-sublimation technology produces a decent print, it's too slow and plastic-intensive for me to recommend over other kinds of printing

Canon Selphy CP770 review


Editors' note: The CP770 uses the exact same printing technology as the previously reviewed CP760, so the performance tests and an explanation of dye-sub technology have been duplicated in this review as a result.

Rapid prints; excellent photo quality; simple design.

Long paper path; wireless accessories not included; no index view; expensive; lacks extra features.

The Canon Selphy CP770 is a neat, little dye-sublimation printer that includes a bucket for easy travel, but the wireless accessories aren't included. If you're shopping for a convenient travel-friendly printer, check out the Canon Selphy CP760 that...

Canon Selphy CP770 Review and Ratings


The Canon Selphy CP770 isn't cheap, but it's a handy and easy way to get near-flawless photo prints at home or on the go.

Beautiful photo output ; Easy to use ; “bucket” case and optional battery make it truly portable

Pricey ; Images on LCD are small and fuzzy ; Higher cost per photo than online and in-store print services ; Included starter ink ribbon good for only five prints

Review: Canon Selphy CP770 portable photo printer


Sporting a clever bucket design that allows for easy packing of cords and extra media, Canon's Selphy CP770 is a streamlined portable photo printer with an optional battery that can print with or without being connected to a computer.

Before printing, you must remove the printer from its traveling bucket, which serves as a storage vessel, not a printer stand. You'll need a decent amount of room for the printer to work, as the area behind it must be kept clear in order for the paper...

June 4, 2008 For happy snappers who want those photos printed NOW, Canon's compact SELPHY CP770 features a bucket-like carrier basket to store the paper and ink, along with a power cord, while the optional battery makes the printer completely portable...

Canon Selphy CP770


To be really honest, the consumer level printer category I love to review, is the snapshot printer. While standard desktop inkjets have gotten redundant in their functioning and design, the snapshot printers are really going the extra mile to find a...

But then again snapshot printers were always about the novelty more than practicality. If you have kids in the house, who you love to photograph in their growing years; you'd probably appreciate the ease of use of this printer. Professional and...

Canon Selphy CP770


A printer that stands out.

Red-eye removal, sepia and black and white effects, good connectivity

Bluetooth connector not included

The Canon Selphy CP770 offers an excellent choice of connection and editing options and we couldn't fault it.

Canon Selphy CP770 compact photo printer


Canon has shifted focus to portability in the Selphy CP770, a photo printer that comes with a bucket. Is it for building sandcastles or after too many margaritas in the sun? We find out. Considering the whole package, the Selphy CP770 is a great...

Funky design, good storage, PictBridge, connection options, print quality with exceptions, simplicity

Bucket is only a storage device, screen quality poor, only get five prints in box, battery not included, colour bleed, prints a little dark

Considering the whole package, the Selphy CP770 is a great printer with a convenient storage solution built-in. We think the LCD screen could have been better quality, and given the space available on the top, could be a bigger size.

Rapid prints ; Excellent photo quality ; Simple design

Long paper path ; Battery pack not included ; No index view ; Relatively expensive ; Lacks extra features

Service and support Canon includes a one-year warranty with the Selphy CP770, with toll-free phone and Web support available as well. The Canon website contains accessories, manual downloads, driver updates, and additional technical support.
