Canon Unveils the SELPHY CP600 Portable Photo Lab
We have so many mobile devices that can capture our moments in our lives, but when it comes down to it all, nothing beats holding a real photo in your hand. Canon’s new SELPHY CP600 does exactly that, you can print your pictures anywhere and anytime directly from your mobile phone or digital camera.
With the SELPHY CP600 portable photo laboratory, owners of any PictBridge-enabled digital still, digital video or digital SLR camera can now produce postcard prints of their photos by connecting their camera into the new portable printer. Have a camera phone? Compatible phones can print seamlessly using the SELPHY CP600 via infrared transmission (IrDA). Bluetooth would have been a better alternative, but not this time around.
The CP600 features Cannon’s DiG!C II image processing technology. As such, the portable printer can provide postcard prints with great picture quality in just around 60 seconds. Worried that your photos will soon fade? Don’t be; pictures produced from the CP600 will be around for awhile alright, up to 100 years to be exact; thanks to a four-layer print process that includes a durable, clear UV protective coating to prevent fading and discoloration.
Pushing the SELPHY CP600’s cool factor, it supports four print sizes (in addition to the postcard-sized one) from credit card-size photos and stickers to 200x100mm pictures. It will retail for around US $325.
