Canon SELPHY CP910 Wireless Compact Photo Printer

To support the growing popularity of capturing and sharing images on-the-go, Canon has introduced the SELPHY CP910 – a compact photo printer. This photo printer offers ultra-portability, advanced printer functionality, new creative applications and an improved user-experience designed so treasured memories taken with a camera or smartphone don’t remain on an LCD screen.

Compared to its predecessor, the SELPHY CP900 (released on August 2012), the SELPHY CP910 model has nearly all the same features as the SELPHY CP900. However, it adds Access Point Mode (Wi-Fi direct) capability that allow you to print photos from your computer or smartphone without involving an access point or a connection between the printer and a network. It also supports Apple’s AirPrint, which allows iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch) to print wirelessly with no configuration. So you can print good quality photos anywhere and anytime. All you need to do is take a photo, tap print, and get your short printed out!.

As this printer is available in both black and white colors, you can now choose a style that suits you and your environment.

Features & Benefit

Speed and Quality

The SELPHY CP910 provides excellent gradations at a high 300×300 dpi resolution and can print a 4 x 6-inch photo in just 47 seconds. This printer uses Dye-sublimation technology, which uses heat to transfer ink to the paper, reproducing approximately 16.8 million colors for amazing pictures in both color and black and white. Photos will be water-resistant and last up to 100 years.

Ease of use

The SELPHY CP910 features a 2.7-inch Tilt-up LCD display so you can easily view, select and edit your images to make them look better before printing. The features for image corrections are very user friendly too and these include red-eye correction, brightness correction and noise reduction. Other features that give your images a more perfect, finished touch are the smooth skin (useful for portraits) and blue sky (great for landscapes) filters; both are very simple to use too. Moreover, you can also select your favorite layout and size of photos.

Paper handling

There are a range of compatible paper sizes for the presentation and enjoyment of your pictures. You can print beautiful, borderless photos in vibrant colors or black and white using Card (2.13″ x 3.39″), Postcard (3.94″ x 5.83″) and L size. The printer can also print on square label-size (2.13″x 2.13″), which is ideal for printing favorite images from smartphone photo sharing-applications such as Instagram. Photos printed from the SELPHY CP910 will be water-resistant and last up to 100 years.
