Canon Selphy CP810 'postcard' photo printer drops in

Create your own photo ID on £99 portable printer

Canon has announced a successor to the Selphy CP800 dedicated photo printer. The Canon Selphy CP810 adds cloud features and some intriguing photo ID templates. Available from May, it will cost £99. 

Dedicated home photo printers that produce standard photo-sized, borderless prints aren’t that common. The Selphy CP810 can produce 6x4in postcard-size prints in under a minute, and can also print credit card-sized photos. Canon believes the latter size will appeal office users who want to produce instant business cards or photo ID cards. Layout templates for creating such documents is preloaded on the Selphy CP810. A 6.7in colour LCD makes it easy to preview and adjust photos before printing.

Although usually mains-powered, the compact printer doubles as a portable model via the use of an optional battery pack. PictBridge, USB and media card support are all included. The £99 printer comes with a 10GB online photo archive, the Canon Gateway. Using this, Selphy CP810 owners can call up photos stored online from any location and print them on demand. The searchable archive can also be used to store documents and video files and to share contents to social networking sites.
