Canon Launches New Selphy Photo Printer
January 14, 2016
For those that consider themselves home photo enthusiasts, there was good news from Canon U.S.A., Inc. last week when they announced the latest member of the Canon SELPHY family of wireless compact photo printers. The CP1200 is newly redesigned and reimagined to keep up with the photo printing behaviors of today’s consumers. New design pieces include an optional direct-attachable battery, Wi-Fi button, and the ability to print even more photos than previous SELPHY models.
The printer has a ton of features ideal for the creation and gifting of keepsakes, mementos, and souvenirs according to the release. Included in the printing sizes are card-size media such as pass cases, messages, and decorated albums among others. Further, users have the option to print postage stamp sized sheets that will contain either 8 thumbnails of the same image or a combination of different images. Borderless printing and image optimization are available both directly on the unit itself or via a compatible wireless device. Using dye-sublimation ink allows the photos produced to resist water and last for up to 100 years.
Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. said, “The updated wireless and inventive feature sets enhance the flexibility and portability that SELPHY printer users love. Canon believes that ease of use and creative availability should go hand-in-hand with high-quality photo printing, so we are excited to offer a greater level of editing functionality and print options.”
Connectivity options on the new SELPHY CP1200 including the ability to print via SD card, Wi-Fi, USB memory, or a USB cable. As with the previous SELPHY model, it also features Wi-Fi Direct connectivity that makes it possible for users to get onto a local wireless network without the use of drivers. Working without drivers provides extra speed to print jobs sent from their cameral roll via the Canon PRINT app.
The SELPHY CP1200 Wireless Compact Photo Printer is expected to retail for $105.99 in either a black or white exterior finish. For more information, visit www.usa.canon.com.
