Canon Selphy CP900

 

Dedicated photo printers like the Canon Selphy CP900 ($99.99 direct) have become something of a niche product. HP doesn't offer any, and Epson, which hasn't offered a new model since late 2009, says it has no plans to announce any in the near future....

Small and portable. Optional battery. Print pack holds both dye roll and paper for easy setup

Wi-Fi support lacks Wi-Fi Direct, which would make printing directly to the printer a lot easier

Canon's latest thermal dye dedicated photo printer, the Selphy CP900, adds Wi-Fi as a connection option, but leaves out Wi-Fi Direct, which would make the Wi-Fi far more useful.

Canon Selphy CP900

 

Do you yearn for the days of Polaroid's instant cameras, when you could shoot an image and have it spit out a glossy right on the spot? If you're using a camera-equipped smartphone or a wireless-capable camera as your shooter, you can get reasonably...

Sharp photo prints ; Lightweight, with optional battery for true portable use ; Wi-Fi support ; Big LCD for a tiny printer ; Supports printing from iOS

High per-print costs ; No Wi-Fi Direct support ; Battery/charger option is pricey

This small, wireless photo printer produces high-quality 4x6-inch prints. The print packs are somewhat expensive, but this is currently the best snapshot-printing solution that’s both wireless and lightweight.

Surprisingly I already have problems

 

This is my second Selphy printer for printing photos. The first one finally died after almost 5 years of use. I was very satisfied with it, even though the paper and ink are expensive. This one, after printing about 60 photos, began not ejecting the...

Great little printer for the money

 

Easy to use and great prints. I set it up and I am technically challenged. The ink and paper come in a big pack and it is very specific on the amount of prints it will make.About me... Budget Conscious

Prints beautifully!

 

I have had several printers as I'm an avid scrapbooker, but this one is by far the best I've seen. The quality is excellent, the prints are vibrant and clear.
