New Canon SELPHY CP910 Wireless Printer for Printing 4"x6" Color Photos Nearly Anywhere
Canon U.S.A. is unveiling a compact color photo printer, the SELPHY CP910 Wireless Compact Photo Printing ($99.99) with wireless printing, which produces color photos up to 4″x6″ (in about 47 seconds), and at just 1.8 lbs., is light enough to take nearly anywhere.
The SELPHY CP910 uses dye-sublimation printing technology, a continuous-tone printing technology that typically produces more photo-realistic image quality compared to inkjet printing (inkjet printers can only simulate continuous tone). There are no ink cartridges to replace, but users must use special paper – available from Canon – designed for dye-sublimation printing. Dye-sublimation printing uses heat to transfer ink to paper, reproducing approximately 16.8 million colors for exceptional image quality.
Canon has also supported the printer with various mobile-printing solutions. Its Mobile Device Printing enables printing from compatible iOS, Android, and Windows RT devices, and, with a new Access Point Mode, the SELPHY CP910 allows users to directly connect to their wireless camera or smart device without having to connect to a wireless router. There’s also printing from USB memory drives and memory cards, and a free Canon Easy-PhotoPrint App, available for both Apple and Android devices – with it, users select and then print an image directly from the camera roll on their device. There’s also an enhanced option to unlock photos with Apple AirPrint for wireless printing from iPhone, iPad, and other iOS devices.
A new Print Finish function has been included, allowing users to change photo texture by simply changing the setting through the printer’s LCD monitor. The printer is also compatible with a wide selection of printer paper, including select square stickers (2.13″x 2.13″), which is ideal for printing images from smartphone photo sharing-applications such as Instagram.
An optional battery and charger are also available. For more information and complete specifications, visit Canon here.
