Canon Selphy CP900

 

The Canon Selphy CP900 is Canon's first dedicated 4-by-6 photo printer with Wi-Fi.

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 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.

Dedicated photo printers like the Canon Selphy CP900 have become something of a niche product. If you need a portable, dedicated 4x6 photo printer, that makes the CP900 one of your few options. Fortunately, it's capable enough that it would probably be...

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. Pros: Small and portable. Optional battery. Print pack holds both dye roll...

A quick, smart photo printer, but it's expensive and our results weren't perfect

Canon SELPHY CP900

 

Canon's SELPHY CP900 is a refined dye-sublimation photo printer.

USB and PictBridge sockets, Waterproof prints, Credit card and sticker prints

18p per photo, Wasteful printing technique, Battery and charger cost extra

Canon SELPHY CP900 review

 

Whilst the printer market is flooded with medium-size colour multifunction and mono single function machines, it's much harder to find small format printers dedicated to photo printers. It's this niche that Canon is trying to capture with the Canon...

Canon's latest ultra-compact thermal dye photo printer has a welcome upgrade of Wi-Fi over its predecessor alongside good quality images, simple controls and flash drive/SD card instant processing.

Great product but!!

 

I purchased the printer in January of 2014 and found that it easily did every thing that I expected of it. Very happy! Then I updated my Mac OS to Yosemite 10.10.3 only to find that Canon provides no software to support the Selphy 900 with that OS and...

Great Little Printer

 

While this is not the best printer on the market, it does exactly what I expect it to do. I use this printer with my photo booth and it was easy to setup and works just fine. My only complaint is the speed is slow but, again, I it was as expected. At...

We need a windows 8.1 driver please

 

This is an outstanding printer which has served me well. I have a new pc running Windows 8.1 and it will not work now. It would be really nice of Cannon USA to develop a diver for this so Canon can serve the current users and continue sales on this....
