The Canon Selphy CP780 snapshot printer has its problems--namely, mediocre speed and expensive, wasteful consumables. But its purchase price is very low ($100 at this writing, as of 7/28/09) and its design is simple, making it a good choice for light...

Inexpensive ; Easy to use

Slow, kludgy paper-tray design ; Expensive, wasteful consumables

The purchase price is right, but use it lightly: it's slow, and its ink and paper are pricey.

Canon Selphy CP780 Compact Photo Printer

 

Like most dedicated photo printers, the CP780 can print from a memory card, a PictBridge camera, or a computer. Unlike many, it can't print from a USB key, which means you can't easily print an image you've already moved to your computer or an optical...

Reasonably fast. Low initial price and reasonably low cost per photo. Photos are water and scratch resistant

Photos show slight soft-focus effect. Lines on an angle (as with spokes on a bicycle wheel) can print with jagged edges

Although the Canon Selphy CP780 Compact Photo Printer is a step below the top tier of dedicated photo printers for photo quality, it's good enough for most casual photographers.

Review: Canon Selphy CP780 snapshot printer

 

The Selphy CP780 is an inexpensive and nearly idiot-proof snapshot printer, but you make major compromises in performance and price per page.

Aimed at the family market, the compact Selphy CP780 comes in three colors (blue, pink, or silver) and can function with or without a computer. A 2.5-inch color LCD and oversize, intuitively labeled control buttons take you through simple editing and...

Lab-quality prints; Lightweight; Low upfront cost

Canon Selphy CP780

 

The latest Selphy dye-sublimation model is a well-built snapshot printer capable of producing good photos, but it lacks some features and requires pricey media.

Good image quality; virtually foolproof operation; battery-pack option

Expensive media; tiny fixed LCD viewscreen; limited feature set; occasional misprints

The Canon Selphy CP780 is a nice snapshot printer for the occasional photographer who doesn’t want to be encumbered with bulky or complex gear. But if you're looking for much more bang for your photo-printing buck, consider checking out a full-size...

This device offers some good, although not great, qualities that make it a decent buy. The Canon Selphy CP780 is a solid photo printer that gives you attractive and water-resistant prints in a fairly reasonable amount of time.

This printer is nicely portable

The paper sizes are limited

The quality and durability of the photo prints make this a good photo-only printer choice.

Inexpensive, easy to use
