Canon Selphy CP770
With its striking yellow and white colour scheme, the Canon Selphy CP770 really stands out. It’s lightweight and practical, with a bucket design complete with detachable handle.
But it wasn’t just the printer’s design that impressed us. The CP770 can print from SD, MMC, Memory Stick or CompactFlash memory cards, from a camera over USB (cable supplied) or directly from a PictBridge-compatible camera. You can even buy a Bluetooth connector to print wirelessly from a mobile phone. You also need to buy photo paper separately. A 36-sheet pack of 6 x 4in paper plus inks costs £9.99.
Images are previewed on the 2.5in LCD display. The Menu button accesses settings options that include turning date stamps on or off, removing red-eye and adding sepia or black and white effects.
We were able to apply image optimisation, but we found that made little difference other than increasing the print time.
The Selphy prints at a fixed resolution of 300dpi and took 65 seconds to produce a 6x4in print featuring our chosen image. The Selphy CP770 offers an excellent choice of connection and editing options and we couldn’t fault it.
