Canon CP770 and CP760
Canon on Tuesday refreshed its photo printers with two additions to the SELPHY line. Just recently launched in Europe, the CP770 is designed to look accessible with a basket-like shape and a handle for owners to tote the printer around and make prints on vacations. A battery pack is available to run the printer for "hours," Canon says. The printer itself builds in a 2.5-inch preview LCD and outputs 300DPI, 4-by-6 inch prints in 52 seconds.
The CP770 connects to Macs and Windows PCs through USB but also supports direct printing from multiple card formats, PictBridge-supporting digital cameras, and phones with Bluetooth printing support courtesy of an optional Bluetooth adapter. Canon delivers the printer in May for $150 and supplies the battery pack for $80.
The simpler CP760 is designed more for use at home and offers the same print quality, LCD, and optional Bluetooth without the friendlier design or the choice of a battery pack. It likewise arrives this month and is priced at $150.
