Canon's New Selphy: Are You Ready?
Canon is widely known in the photography world as a producer of fantastic cameras. But the company also got their hands into the computer world, creating printers, scanners, copiers, and more. Buy the one you want and treat it well, and a Canon product will last for years.
Newest on their product line is the Selphy, models ES40 and CP790. Both are compact photo printers, and when Canon says compact, they mean it. These models are made to come with you, on the go and providing you with great quality prints wherever you happen to be. Canon Selphy printers are like the updated version of a Polaroid camera. Want to distribute pictures to everyone during the vacation? Bring the Selphy, plug your camera into it, and print!
Each Selphy model has some nifty new features that can make it difficult to choose just one. The ES40 keeps the paper and the ink together, printing out seamless photos in black and white or color depending upon your preference. The picture sizes range from small credit card-sized prints to the more traditional postcard-sized prints. Canon claims that their photos are not only water resistant, but based upon their tests, photos that are well taken care of will last as long as 100 years! Now that is impressive.
You also get a 3.5-inch LCD screen that gives you all sorts of options, such as scrolling through the photos you want, printing only your choices and not the entire camera rolls. You can customize pictures in all sorts of ways, be as creative as you want, and the ES40 has voice guidance - the printer speaks to you and takes you through whatever steps necessary to get the perfect prints.
The CP790 comes with a storage basket that not only holds the printer, but extra supplies such as ink and paper cassettes, AC adapter, and battery pack. It locks everything in place so there are no worries about pieces jostling around. The LCD screen is 3 inches and the printer gives you many of the same options (borders, colors, photo correction, etc.) as the ES40. It comes in a fun green color that is likely to appeal to the crafty (great for scrapbooking!).
Both printers allow you to print directly from cameras, memory cards, and even Bluetooth mobile devices. Canon has made sure to keep their printers compatible with all sorts of applications and operating systems. They print quickly and effectively, popping out colorful postcard-sized photos in under a minute. The CP790 is Energy Star certified to utilize a minimum amount of electricity, and the ES40 can add some shine to your photos with their gold and silver ink cartridges.
Whichever printer you decide, they're both effective, sleek and streamlined, easy to take along, and offer up lab-quality photos any time you want them. Consider the features of each one to see which best works with your printing needs. After that, the only question that remains is - are you ready for a brand new Canon Selphy printer?
