Canon Selphy CP790

 

At first glance, the Canon Selphy CP790 snapshot printer looks more like a lime-green lunch pail. With its convenient handle, it begs you to take it to your next children's party or family get-together. The trade-offs are a high purchase price ($180 on...

Innovative design; good connectivity ; Built-in carrying case with handle

Yellowish cast on some photos ; Finicky paper cassettes

This printer is cute and stylish, but it wastes ink and has an awkward paper-handling setup.

Overall a very bold move on Canon to provide the consumer market with a unique design and color for a portable printer. The Canon Selphy CP790 will perform good color prints at a print resolution up to 300 x 300 dpi. Given its very unattractive color...

Review: Canon Selphy CP790 snapshot printer

 

This printer is cute and stylish, but it wastes ink and has an awkward paper-handling setup

The 3.2-pound printer acts as the top-heavy lid of an oval bucket. Plastic latches secure the printer to the bucket. The bucket is divided into two compartments for storing the AC adapter, paper caddies, and supplies. To make the Selphy CP790 truly...

Though a competent photo printer, the Selphy CP790 is not a good value. The unit and prints are expensive, and the software bundle is meager.

Portable; good image quality; does not require computer for printing; optional battery

Paltry software bundle; expensive prints; requires dedicated USB connection

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

Canon SELPHY CP790 review

 

That's where the Canon SELPHY line steps in with their newest addition: the Canon SELPHY CP790. Truly portable and simple to use - thanks to the lime green storage bucket – the SELPHY CP790 can print on four different medias in as fast as 47 seconds

Great portable design ; 3-inch LCD ; Good image quality

Expensive ; No USB cable provided

There is also an optional Bluetooth adapter for those wireless nuts out there; it can also be found on the Canon website for $49.99

Canon SELPHY CP790 - Portable Photo Printer

 

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's printer shaped like a bucket.

Canon Selphy CP790 review

 

The 1.1kg Canon Selphy CP790 printer acts as the top-heavy lid of an oval bucket. Plastic latches secure the printer to the bucket. The bucket is divided into two compartments for storing the AC adaptor, paper caddies, and supplies.

The Canon Selphy CP790 succeeds in being portable, capable, and even amusing. Still, the awkward paper handling and plastic-intensive ink cartridges are design drawbacks.

Canon Selphy CP790 review

 

Introducing the Selphy CP970 from Canon: a portable photo printer designed as a lime-green lunch box.

Logically labelled and intuitive control buttons; fast printing; good print quality

High purchase price and oddly designed; wasteful consumables

The Canon Selphy CP790 succeeds in being portable, capable, and even amusing. Still, the awkward paper handling and plastic-intensive ink cartridges are drawbacks.
