For those with very small desks.
Canon’s Selphy printer range is almost as big a hit with us as its renowned range of digital cameras so the news of two additional compact dye subs makes me happier than any my understated yet suave appearance would suggest.
Tickling my delicate fancies there are the Selphy ‘CP750’ and ‘CP740’, replacements to the CP730 and CP720 respectively.
Primary improvements this time around are the introduction of Red Eye correction and larger 2.4in (CP750) and 2in (CP740) LCD screens with icon based user interfaces. Canon also promises better skin tone reproduction and additional printing modes on both models.
Where the CP750 pulls away from its lower spec brother however is the addition of ‘My Colors’ photo effects and ‘IrSimple’ compatibility which enables infra-red printing from mobile devices including laptops and mobile phones. The CP750 can also trims shots directly from the printer prior to printing.
As with previous models Canon states that their dye sub based prints can last up to 100 years (based on accelerated tests), while integrated card readers enable printing from virtually all flavours (including the latest SDHC formats) and the built in USB cable in each has been lengthened. Finally check boxes can be put alongside commonplace features such as PictBridge and optional Bluetooth Adaptors.
No prices or release dates for the pair yet but if track records are anything to go by they’ll be out soon not far either side of 100 notes.
