The Canon Selphy photo printer: now available in different colors!


Not only did Canon unless a slew of new digital cameras, but the company also announced the SELPHY CP780 personal photo printer. The brand has been around for sometime, but now – get this – it will be available in a range of colors to match the just announced PowerShot SD1200 IS camera! Spectacular! In all fairness, Canon did equip the printer with updated tech for better pictures. 

Within the SELPHY CP780 is a new processor that automatically corrects brightness and color for more natural and realistic look. The printer only take 47 seconds to spit out a 4 x 6 too. And just like previous models, a battery is available for $79 if you simply must have a truly portable photo printer. Expect the printer to hit photo stores and online retailers with an MSRP of $99.99.

“Canon SELPHY printers have consistently provided consumers with high-quality images at a reasonable price,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, senior vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A. “Now with the three different color variations, users will not only be able to share their memorable moments but also their own unique style.”
