Press release (Canon Europe):
Digital Photo's in an instant with Canon's new Direct Card Photo Printer CP-100
Amstelveen 22 February 2002 - Canon today announces the latest addition to its 'Direct Print' range. The Card Photo Printer CP-100 connects directly to Canon's range of digital cameras for effortless high quality photos.
"Direct print will really gain momentum this year with Canon's range of supporting cameras and printers.' says Mr. Komatsuzaki, Executive Vice President, Canon Consumer Imaging. 'Simply connect the digital camera to a direct printer for high quality photos without the need for a PC.'
Expanding the 'Direct Print' printer line-up, the CP-100 offers print size flexibility including 10x15 cm (actual size 100x148mm, 4x6 inches), credit card size and stickers. 10x15 cm is the most popular size for traditional photo's allowing these digital prints to be stored in a traditional photo album.
The CP-100 uses dye-sublimation technology that can re-create photos with millions of colours. The printer builds up a full colour image by merging three separate colour layers; yellow, magenta and cyan, and then applies a protective layer that adds the durability of a traditional print. The CP-100 assures superb true photo quality prints that look and feel like a traditional silver halide print.
Digital photos don't come easier or faster, just 3 easy steps is all it takes to print a high quality image. Simply connect the Canon digital camera to the printer by means of a dedicated cable; Select the image from the automatic menu; Press print and watch as a high quality print is developed in just over 80 seconds.

ultimate imaging accessory for Canon digital camera owners. Canon continuously
delivers incredible performance in small packages and the new direct printer
CP-100 is no exception, providing true mobility and the ability to print
superb quality images anywhere.
Should AC power be unavailable, the optional rechargeable battery pack and in car power kit ensures the continued enjoyment of making prints on the move. An optional PC/Mac Computer connection kit will be available from autumn 2002 for those wanting to experience the same high quality prints from images stored on a PC.
