Expert Reviews

Canon Selphy CP720 Reviews

Gadgetspeak reviews the Canon Selphy CP720 and writes;
“The images it prints are fine and as it is Dye Sub the image is always perfectly dry on delivery. Dye Sub is a four pass process and each image takes around 45seconds for this process. After the first pass you see an almost yellow sheet, the second pass shows a lot of red and the third blue by now the image will probably be recognisable and then after the forth pass through the unit your final image is delivered with just a tiny bit of the image overlapping the two selvedge edges and these are micro perforated and easily torn off.”

Canon Selphy CP720 User Reviews

Great 4X6 photo Printer
“Print quality is excellent with anti-smudge coating, you can not tell the difference with print from Photo Lab or even better. Printing time takes about 2 min. Highly recommend this printer for people who want to print snap photos by themselves. Furthermore, upgrade version CP730 has battery operated option, so you can get nice photo lab quality print at anytime, anywhere. “ – by NAKI

I love this printer
“I received this printer as a gift and I love it. It prints beautifully! It is compact and I love that I can print pictures using anyone’s memory card. It’s a great way to share images. It beats waiting for a copy you may never get. I also love that I can print greeting cards! I highly recommend this printer!” – by Luv2bShopping

Great print quality
“Great print quality,and speed. Very good software bundle but wont work on windows 98/ME.And there isnt a version that will work. If you think being able to crop and rotate from the little display on the 730 is worth an extra 50.00 think again ,it’s a 2.5” display,and its hard to see what the end result will be,so save the 50 and get this one. The card reader wont read compact flash from a kodak camera,but works great with my cannon. Easy to load paper tray and print cartrige. “ – by Samdrucker

Fantastic portable printer- great printouts
“We original bought a lower model of the selphy for our daughter. When I saw the prints from hers, I had to get one for myself. This printer is simple to use (comes with nice little editing program), very portable and prints great prints. I’ve seen reviews saying it jams alot and complaints about the availabilty of the paper. I have printed over a hundered prints with mine and never had a jam. Paper is available in 4×6, a credit card size (great for wallet photos) and even little stickers (fun for kids).” – by tkmomhal

Quick prints, pretty good quality
“This printer makes a photo print in less than 1 minute and the quality is pretty good. We noticed the color is a bit off from true color, but if you want truly accurate color reproduction, go to a photo lab!..” – by (reviews-name)
