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'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


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...

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

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

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...

Absolutely Great Printer


I have not had good experience with other photo printers like the easyshare printers. They tend to jam and break very easily. I've purposely have been rough with this printer because I wanted to make sure it held up well so that I could get one for my...

I bought this printer as a bundle that came with a camera. The printer creates exceptional photos. The bucket idea was something to get use to, but it's very handy. Load everything up and carry it around. Prints 1 photo in about 1 minute. I've never...

The only thing that was somewhat troublesome was getting photo orientation correct on landscape photos. Also, doesn't come with a USB cable to connect to computer
