Canon SELPHY CP900 Review - With Wi-Fi for quick and easy printing from smartphones, tablets and other wireless devices, the ultra-compact Canon SELPHY CP900 delivers beautiful long-lasting, lab quality prints in under 1 minute. The Canon SELPHY CP900 photo printer fits perfectly anywhere in the home and it’s portable enough to take to parties and family events.
Wi-Fi support lets you print quickly and easily from smartphones, tablets, PCs and compatible cameras without a cable. Anyone can print professional quality long lasting photos in less than 1 minute by simply pressing a button. Dye sublimation technology provides superb depth and colour gradation for a similar look and feel to traditional lab prints without the wait. A postcard-size print, for example, takes around 47 seconds. A special overcoat protects each print against splashes, spills and fading and lasts up to 100 years stored in an album.
The user-friendly design includes a 6.8 cm (2.7”) LCD with a tilting function for easy operation and viewing. On-screen instructions are simple to follow and include support for 13 languages. For quick prints just connect your PictBridge-compatible camera directly to the printer. You can also print from a range of memory cards, including SDXC, via the integrated card reader, and from USB flash drives for greater flexibility.
The printer offers many ways to share your memories including postcard (148 x 100mm), square (50 x 50mm) or credit card (86 x 54mm) sized prints all in super-quick time. Auto Image Optimize with Scene and Face detection ensures superb results. It detects and corrects image imperfections, adjusting the brightness and colour of scenes and faces while reducing unwanted noise, giving your prints extra clarity and richness.
Whether for personal or professional use, ID Photo Print with Face Frame Guide lets you create and print ID photos in widely-accepted sizes or set a custom size. Print multiple ID photos in the same or different sizes on one sheet to save paper. Print on the move indoors or out with the optional rechargeable Battery Pack NB-CP2L (requires CG-CP200 Charger Adapter). A single charge delivers over 36 postcard size prints.
The supplied SELPHY Photo Print software lets you easily create your own calendar, choose decorative frames, or add clip art and speech bubbles to your prints with Creative Print mode.
