Canon Selphy CP770 review

£139 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Canon

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

With its striking yellow-and-white colour scheme, the Canon Selphy CP770 is a direct photo printer that really stands out.

With its striking yellow-and-white colour scheme, the Canon Selphy CP770 is a direct photo printer that really stands out.

Lightweight and practical, the Canon Selphy CP770 has a bucket design complete with detachable handle. When you're not using it you can store all the attachments and leads in the bucket and clip the handle back on to carry it to the nearest cupboard.

But it's not just the Canon Selphy CP770's design that impresses us.

The Canon Selphy 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 buy a separate Bluetooth connector to print wirelessly from a mobile phone.

You need to buy photo paper separately, however. A 36-sheet pack of 6x4in paper plus inks for the Canon Selphy CP770 costs £9.99.

To print, simply plug in a memory card or camera and use the navigation buttons to scroll through the images. You can preview these on the 2.5in LCD display on top of the Canon Selphy CP770.

The Canon Selphy CP770's Menu button accesses settings options that include turning date stamps on or off, removing red-eye and adding sepia or black and white effects.

You can change the layout or the number of photos per page and apply image optimisation – a feature commonly found on digital cameras which, in practice, we found made little difference.

The Canon Selphy CP770 prints at a fixed resolution of 300dpi and took 44 seconds to produce a clear and bright credit-card sized sticker featuring our chosen image. Times differ slightly for larger images: we certainly noticed a difference with image optimisation turned on.

    It's slow and a bit clunky, but the Canon Selphy CP740's photo prints look smooth.

    Canon Selphy CP790

    At first glance, the Canon Selphy CP790 snapshot printer looks more like a lime-green lunch box. With its convenient handle, it begs you to take it to your next children's party or family get-together. The trade-offs are a high purchase price and oddly designed, wasteful consumables.

  • Canon Selphy ES3 review

    Canon Selphy ES3

    Canon's Selphy ES3 snapshot printer is as cute as the similarly shaped (and priced) HP Photosmart A826. Unfortunately, not everything about the Canon Selphy ES3 photo printer is so disarming and friendly.
