Canon has announced two new compact photo printers. The SELPHY CP770 and the ultra-compact CP760.
The 770 has a suggested retail price of $149.00 and works with the optional Canon NB-CP2 battery pack ($79.99) for printing anywhere. Of note, this printer supports infrared wireless capability making it very easy to print photos from cellphone cameras or other devices. It also features a 2.5″ LCD monitor.
The 760 retails for $99.99 has a 2.5″ TFT screen with card slots that make it easy to print straight from the camera using a USB cable.
Both printers make 4×6″ color prints and use Canon’s Portrait Image Optimize technology that allows photographers to correct and improve their image quality without a computer. The printer automatically corrects for red-eye and can lighten or darken individual areas of an image. This new technology also employs facial recognition to correct for the ideal brightness and coloring.
Both printers also include new lamination to help reduce blurring and fingerprints.
For an additional $49.99, Canon’s optional BU-30 Bluetooth adaptor makes it even more convenient to print from Bluetooth enabled cameras.
