It's not clear how the concept of a printer in a bucket got past the concept stage, but Canon's mushroom-shaped SELPHY CP790 certainly makes for an interesting review. At first glance, it looks like something Fisher Price might have thought up,...

This printer is cute and stylish, but it wastes ink and has an awkward paper-handling setup....

The Canon Selphy CP790 looks more like a lunch box than a printer. With its convenient handle, it begs you to take it to your next children’s party or family get-together. The trade-offs are a high purchase price and oddly designed, wasteful...

The Canon Selphy CP790 succeeds in being portable, capable, and even amusing. Still, the awkward paper handling and plastic-intensive ink cartridges are design drawbacks. Susan Silvius...

The Selphy CP790 succeeds in being portable, capable, and even amusing. Still, the awkward paper handling and plastic-intensive ink cartridges are design drawbacks. Given that there are better printers in terms of photo quality, ease of use, and...

Overall a very bold move on Canon to provide the consumer market with a unique design and color for a portable printer. The Canon Selphy CP790 will perform good color prints at a print resolution up to 300 x 300 dpi. Given its very unattractive color...

Though a competent photo printer, the Selphy CP790 is not a good value. The unit and prints are expensive, and the software bundle is meager....

I’m not going to lie, I loved the SELPHY CP790. I may be a bit of a cornball but I liked the design, the color, the fun control panel and LCD, and even the slightly kitschy “creative prints.”The only real problem I could find with the...

Canon photo printers are typically excellent, and the Selphy CP790--the high end of the Selphy line--is no exception. Its also at the high end in terms of price for a photo printer, and worth it. Thats not just because the printed photo quality is...

International Review By Komputer for Alle on 70

Print kan ske enten fra hukommelseskort, USB-nøgle eller direkte fra kameraet, hvis det understøtter PictBridge. Printeren kan selvfølgelig også sluttes til computeren, men uanset hvilken metode der benyttes, ligger printtiden for et...

Själva skrivaren utgör dock bara den övre halvan av hinken, resten av utrymmet utnyttjas för att förvara sladdar, extra papper och färgband samt eventuellt ett extrabatteri. Med ett sådant är man redo att skriva...

Canon Selphy CP790 är en portabel fotoskrivare med udda design som skriver ut högklassiga foton. Tyvärr blir kostnaden per foto ganska...

Canon Selphy CP790 är en limegrön spann med lock och handtag att bära den i. Locket utgör själva skrivaren, som är ganska liten när du har knäppt loss och tagit ur den. Hinken innehåller sladdar, papper,...
