Canon Selphy CP-900 Review
Despite the lack of competition owing to the few sublimation photo printers available, Canon’s Selphy CP-900 still stands out with lots of impressive features. It has taken dye sublimation printing to a whole new level with the modern features that it comes equipped with.
A good example is the Wi-Fi support that enables you to print from Wi-Fi enabled devices through the use of a Wi-Fi network as opposed to cabled connections. The Selphy CP-900 is small and compact, making it a very portable printer. When you add the convenience of printing from a rechargeable battery, this printer becomes a very useful backup tool for any home or office environment. Its top panel has a 6.8 cm LCD screen that can be tilted to give the best view. When not in use, it can be laid back flat to maintain a compact shape.
This panel also contains a simple control panel. On its front panel, the Selphy CP-900 has a SD card slot and a flip-down cover which is used to insert the paper cassette that can accommodate up to 18 sheets of paper. The right side of the printer has a small cassette from where the dyes for sublimation printing are stored. Dye sublimation printing transfers tiny amounts of solid dye from a coated film to the paper. This film is found on this small cassette in the form of magenta, yellow and cyan layers together with a transparent layer for protection. The cassette holds enough dye to print 36 photos and it is easily accessible when mounted on a printer to ensure that you have no problems when replacing.
The main feature that has drawn a lot of attention to the Sephy CP-900 is its Wi-Fi support. To use this feature, you will need to connect the device to an external network then you can print through the network. This is effective in that the printer will be accessible by any device that’s connected to the network. The other option is connecting the device directly through an ad hoc connection. However, not many smartphones support this feature. Nonetheless, with a supported smartphone, it will give you a lot of convenience since there will be no need for another network. With added USB and PictBridge ports, you can be sure that you will never be limited when it comes to connectivity options. The Selphy CP-900 may be small and easy to transport but some of its components are bulky and may make the transportation of this printer cumbersome.
One of these components is the paper cassette which triples depth of the machine. While it comes with a rechargeable battery that will enable you to use the printer in places without a direct wall plug, you will have to pay a little bit more before you can enjoy this convenience. Printing on this printer is expensive, but the output quality makes up for it. In conclusion, the Selphy CP-900 is a printer that will make the printing of dye sublimation photos easier. The fact that it can be done almost anywhere adds to its usefulness.
