Mother’s Day Special: Canon Selphy CP760 Pink Compact Photo Printer

A pinky thermal-dye printer, the Canon Selphy CP760 is designed to print photos at an assortment of sizes up to 4 by 8 inches, although many (if not most) people will wind up using it exclusively for 4-by-6s.
Like most of Canon’s dedicated photo printers, it can print from a computer, from your memory cards via the card slots, a PictBridge camera or its built-in infrared port.
Canon also sells an optional Bluetooth adapter ($49.99 direct) for printing from phones and other Bluetooth devices.

Compatible memory cards with the Canon Selphy CP760 include SD Memory Card, miniSD Card, SDHC MemoryCard, miniSDHC Card, MultiMedia Card, MMCplus Card, MMC mobile Card, HC MMCplus Card, RS-MMC, Compact Flash Card, Microdrive, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo

The LCD for the built-in menu and for previewing photos is 2.5 inches and the menu offers a few editing commands, including red-eye reduction, the ability to print a color image as sepia or black and white, and an image optimizer that you can turn on or off.

The Canon Selphy CP760 output is solidly in the true-photo-quality range. Colors tend to be a little punchy rather than realistic, but no more so than many people prefer.
As with most thermal-dye output, the photos are reasonably waterproof and scratch resistant, thanks largely to a protective coating the printer adds as the last step in printing.
You don’t have to worry about passing a batch of photos out for people to look at and having them come back ruined.
Canon also claims a reasonably long lifetime for the photos, at 100 years for photos kept in dark storage, as in an album, 30 years for photos kept behind glass, and 10 years for photos exposed to the air.

Mother’s Day is May 10th, order now the Canon Selphy CP760 and save up to 50%!
