Canon Selphy CP780

 

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...

Canon SELPHY CP780 photo printer

 

A fantastic snapshot printer for families, though it could be faster and cheaper to run

Inexpensive, easy to use

Slow, poor paper tray design, expensive consumables

The Canon Selphy CP780 is a cheap and nearly idiot-proof snapshot printer. We just wish it was faster and had a lower cost per print.

Canon Selphy CP780

 

Producing your own 6x4 prints, mini cards and photo stickers can be fun, if you are prepared to pay extra for it and do all the work.

The one problem, and it is a big one, is that the prints are expensive. A basic refill pack of 24 photo cards and dye-sub roll cassette costs £15: that's 62p per print, not including the £129 price of the printer. Yet there is no denying the appeal of...
