Canon made another addition to its Selphy compact photo printer line with the CES introduction of the CP-400.
The new portable dye-sublimation printer is a bit quicker than its CP-220 predecessor, producing a 4-inch by 6-inch photo print in 81 seconds. It ships this month for an estimated street price of $149.99.
The CP-400 produces credit-card size photos, photo stickers, photo labels and 4-inch by 8-inch photo greeting cards with an optional accessory paper cassette. The unit is PictBridge-enabled and offers two new print options: N-Up printing and fixed-size printing. The first allows users to create more than one smaller version of the same image on a single sheet, while the latter allows the users to preselect a dimension for the print even if it is different from the paper to be printed on. This lets users print a 3-inch by 5-inch photo on 4-inch by 6-inch paper.
The printer ships with software offering templates and clip art for personalized photo greetings, holiday cards, birth announcements and party invitations, among other projects.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
