To ensure image quality the SELPHY CP770 photo printer has a number of photo-correcting and quality features including automatic red eye correction and image optimization, which enhances background brightness and contrast. An ink sublimation process helps reduce blurring and new high-gloss overcoat technology guarantees clear, dry photos that guard against water, oil and fingerprints. Canon’s DIGIC II image processor provides advanced in-printer processing of all images and also gives the SELPHY CP770 rapid start-up times and card reading and image viewing times up to ten times faster than previous models.

The unit features color-coded buttons to make operation as simple as possible and loading the paper and ink is also made easy thanks to the simple cartridge-loading side door and integrated ink and media cassette, which is color coded for easy identification. Photos can be previewed on the high-definition angled 2.5” LCD screen. As well as the standard 6”x4” photo sized prints the SELPHY CP770 can also print on a variety of paper styles, including postcards, photo stickers and wallet-size.

The Canon SELPHY CP770 carries a suggested retail price of US$149.99.
