In addition to their two new cameras Canon has also introduced two new dye-sublimation photo printers the Selphy CP740 and CP750. The primary difference between the two appears to be in LCD size, photo adjustment and IrDA and IrSimple (high-speed) support. These two new printers take approximately one minute to produce a postcard (6x4") print at 300 dpi, they feature a range of connectivity options including card slots (CF, SD, MMC, Memory Stick, xD-Picture Card), direct PC/Mac printing (USB), Canon Direct Print and PictBridge (USB), Infrared (CP750), Bluetooth (optional BU-20 unit) and even WiFi (optional WA-1E unit).
Canon updates SELPHY CP range with
two stylish models
Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 07 May, 2007: Canon today launches two new additions to its SELPHY range of ultra-compact photo printers.
The SELPHY CP750 and entry-level SELPHY CP740 – replacing the popular SELPHY CP730 and SELPHY CP720 respectively – introduce Red-Eye Correction to the CP series for the first time. Larger LCD screens, improved skin tone reproduction and new printing modes come as standard on both models. The SELPHY CP750 also features additional My Colors photo effects and IrSimple compatibility for infra-red printing from mobile devices.
The SELPHY CP750 and SELPHY CP740 offer
- Compact, stylish design
- 2.4” (SELPHY CP750) or 2.0” (SELPHY CP740) LCD screen with icon-based user interface
- Automatic Red-Eye Correction
- Increased My Colors Functionality (SELPHY CP750 only)
- Image trimming before printing (SELPHY CP750 only)
- Direct printing from almost all major memory cards
- Prints that last for up to 100 years *
- Increased layout selections
- Support for IrDA and new high speed IrSimple infra-red communication (SELPHY CP750 only)
- Improved skin tone reproduction
The dye-sublimation printing process of the new SELPHY CP750 and SELPHY CP740 delivers smooth, glossy prints that are free from graininess. While each printed dot has up to 256 gradation (intensity) levels per colour – allowing a total reproduction range of up to 16.8 million colours – the special, high-gloss protective layer added to each print at the end of the process provides protection from splashes, spills and fingerprints. Photographs are ready to handle as soon as printing finishes.
The stylish, modern designs of the SELPHY CP750 and the SELPHY CP740 fit effortlessly into any contemporary home and, with a footprint smaller than a sheet of A5 paper, either model can be used and stored even in restricted spaces. A lightweight build and retractable USB cable also make both the SELPHY CP750 and SELPHY CP740 ultra-portable: with the addition of an optional battery pack, the SELPHY CP750 can be turned into a take-anywhere portable printer.
Larger LCD for detail and ease
The new, larger LCD screens of the SELPHY CP750 and the SELPHY CP740 – measuring 2.4” and 2.0” respectively – enable users to enjoy more detailed previews of their work. Operated via the LCD screen, the user interface has been improved: easy-to-see icons make it simple for every member of the family to use either new SELPHY. Card reading and image selection are even faster and more straightforward than before, while the user interface of the SELPHY CP750 offers advanced, precise image trimming.
Enhance and Adjust
Automatic Red-Eye Correction can be activated at the touch of a button: the most convenient way to eliminate the unwanted effects of flash photography from pictures. Skin Tone optimisation enhances flesh tones, providing greater realism in print.
With the SELPHY CP750, Canon’s My Colors feature allows users to add colour effects – such as Black & White or Sepia – to images before printing. The addition of a new ‘Positive Film’ option provides a way for users to recapture the classic feeling of slide film in their prints.
Print from camera or card
A full range of printing options is available. With PictBridge direct printing, a camera can be easily connected to either printer: an integrated USB cable has been made longer than on predecessor models, for greater ease of use. Alternatively, printing from virtually any memory card is easy. Both printers offer support for the latest formats, including MMCplus, MMCmobile, microSD, microSDHC and MMCmicro. For users wishing to print from a mobile device, the SELPHY CP750 offers support for high-speed IrSimple and IrDA transfer; alternatively, an optional Bluetooth adaptor is available for both models.
