CP780 Canon unveils colourful SELPHY CP780 photo printer

Singapore, 25 May 2009 – Instant photo printing has just become more playful with Canon’s new SELPHY CP780. Designed as the perfect companion digital cameras, the SELPHY CP780 delivers photo prints that are glossier and more optimised than before. With a 2.5-inch LCD display, 10% increase in print speed and optional battery support, consumers are empowered to spend their time creating and sharing photos on the move, instead of waiting for their photo prints by the photo lab.

Lab-quality Photo Prints
Employing dye-sublimation technology, the SELPHY CP780 offers a print resolution of 300 x 300dpi. 
 
For maximum convenience, the SELPHY CP780 optimises ink and paper usage with an innovative ink & paper cartridge system. The quantity of ink is matched to the amount of paper provided so that you never run out of one before the other. Once depleted, consumers can easily purchase a new set of ink/paper. Varied paper options – ranging from credit card to postcard sizes – are also available for a range of different prints and results.

Adding to your repertoire of printouts, the SELPHY CP780 comes bundled with a new SELPHY Photo Print software that jazzes up images with special effects, frames and calendars. This application also features voice guidance for true fuss-free and user-friendly operation.

Smarter, Glossier, Speedier
The SELPHY CP780 comes with an automatic Portrait Image Optimiser that allows quick useful tweaks such as exposure, brightness, contrast, colour saturation, auto-correct backlit photos and red-eye before printing.  All these work to achieve flattering, natural skin tones and optimum exposures.

With a slicker-than-ever paper feed mechanism, the SELPHY CP780 achieves clearer image quality, reduced noise and glossier prints compared to predecessors. Print speed has also increased by 10% over the previous model (SELPHY CP760).

Connectivity and Portability
The SELPHY CP780 is capable of printing directly from a memory card as well as with a PC and a PictBridge supported camera directly via USB. With its support of selected Bluetooth adaptors, it is also possible to print wirelessly with the SELHY CP780 from Bluetooth enabled-devices such as mobile phones and PDAs. For those seeking fuss-free printing without cables in tow, there is an optional battery pack to provide power on the move.

Pricing and availability
The ultimate in print portability – the SELPHY CP780 (and accessories) – is now available at all authorised Canon dealers in red and silver.  The perfect companion to the SELPHY CP780 is the newly launched IXUS 95 IS, available in perfectly matched colours.

The recommended retail price of the SELPHY CP780 and the IXUS 95 IS are as follows:

- SELPHY CP780 compact photo printer: SGD179
