Canon Card Photo Printer CP-200
Date: Dec 22, 2003
Canon Card Photo Printer CP-200 is ready
to go right out of the box. Measuring only 170.0W
x 119.0D x 54.8H mm / 6.7W x 4.7D x 2.2H in. and
weighing 820g / 28.9 oz., the CP-200 can be easily
carried in a business attache case, gym bag, or
backpack. Since it is PictBridge-compatible, you
can connect any PictBridge-compatible digital
camera (of any brand) to it and print directly
without going through a computer. Which means
you can now print your pictures wherever you want
to. I can easily think of a few cases:
party for instant prints of your friends goofing
around, sure to generate even more guffaws.
family prints for out-of-state relatives. No
need to mail the pictures a week later.
you are a professional photographer, the CP-200
gives you instant 4x6 in. prints to show your
potential customers at a wedding party, a dance,
on the cruise ship sailing down the harbour.
Get their orders for large prints in now!
CP-200 uses dye sublimation to print high-quality
300 dpi 4x6 in. photos, credit card size photos
or sticky photo labels. You can print them bordered
or borderless, with each 4x6 in. photo taking
about 85 seconds to print. The photo prints in
four passes with one colour deposited on each
pass (Yellow, Magenta and Cyan), followed by a
protective overcoating. You can even create your
own postcards; in fact, the paper that comes with
the printer is really a postcard, with space to
write an address and message at the back.
you can print directly without going through a
computer, there is nothing to install! Well, that
is if you always print directly from your
digital camera, which I can't see this happening.
Perhaps the first time when you have just taken
the pictures, you'll print directly from the camera;
after that, you will most probably transfer the
images from the memory card to your PC, and print
from your PC. To do that, simply install the supplied
printer software. The popular ZoomBrowser EX and
Photo Record software also come standard for Windows,
and ImageBrowser for the Mac.
directly printed a dozen or so of 4x6 in. borderless
prints using images that I took with the 4MP Canon
PowerShot SD10 Digital ELPH digital camera,
and they came out looking great.
case you forget, printers do not usually come
with a printer cable (to connect to your computer),
so remember to order one with your printer. With
the Canon CP-200, I was able to reuse my current
printer USB cable.
The Canon Card Photo Printer CP-200 (and its cousin
CP-300 which comes with a rechargeable battery
for ultimate carry anywhere convenience) is fun
and easy to use. It is compact, sleek and look
modern in design. Take it with you anywhere you
can plug in the power cord and, together with
a PictBridge-compatible digital camera, you'll
have the modern equivalent of the instant camera.
