CANON CANADA ANNOUNCES COLOURFUL COMPACT PHOTO PRINTER
MISSISSAUGA, ON, February 18, 2009 — Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging, today announced a new addition to its line of compact photo printers: the SELPHY CP780. Featuring improved image quality and faster print speeds than its predecessor, this cleverly designed SELPHY compact photo printer is ideal for the parent who wants to share images of their children with family and friends.
“Canon SELPHY printers have consistently provided consumers with high-quality images at a reasonable price,” said Ian Macfarlane, Vice President and General Manager of the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon Canada Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Now with the three different colour variations, users will not only be able to share their memorable moments but also their own unique style.”
The new Canon SELPHY compact photo printer will produce images of a higher quality than previous models due to enhancements to the Portrait Image Optimize feature. The Face Detection brightness correction and colour cast correction have been vastly improved so that skin tones and faces will be produced with natural and realistic colours. The printing process was also revised so that a 4 x 6-inch print can now be completed in approximately 47 seconds1. The easy-to-access card slots allow users to plug in memory cards2 or print straight from the camera with a USB cord.
Designed with a new wave-shaped top surface, the SELPHY CP780 compact photo printer comes equipped with a 6.4-centimetre LCD screen, making it easy to review images and navigate through menus from various angles. The buttons have been arranged in an easy-to-understand layout for simplicity and seamless navigation through menus. An optional battery pack is available to allow for printing from almost anywhere while providing hundreds of prints before needing to be recharged.
Canon BU-30 Bluetooth Adaptor
Making it even more convenient to print images is the optional Canon BU-30 Bluetooth adaptor. Available for the SELPHY CP780 compact photo printer, the BU-30 adaptor allows images to be sent from Bluetooth enabled devices, such as cell phones, directly to the SELPHY model to be printed.
The Canon SELPHY CP780 compact photo printer carries an estimated retail price of CAD $129.993.
