Canon SELPHY CP-510 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 6.06 (out of 10)
"Canon released the SELPHY CP-510 and SELPHY CP-710 in the fall of 2005. They are both small dye-sub printers, the major difference being that the CP-710 has a memory card reader built in. They are both compatible with the NB-CP2L battery pack for portable operation. The optional BU-20 Bluetooth adapter unit enables wireless printing from devices that support the Bluetooth standard, such as some camera phones.

For those wanting 4x6 prints from an easy to use and portable printer, the CP-510 ($95) and CP-710 ($145) are good choices. They are small enough and light enough to carry in your camera bag if you're going to an event and want to proof images on the spot. The prints are waterproof and fingerprint resistant which is something that may be very useful if you're printing pictures at an a party, plus they can be sent through the mail as postcards. You do need AC power unless you buy the optional Li-ion battery pack."

Review: "...In this crowded field, the competition is heated (no pun intended) and the results depend on whether you're swayed by quality, speed, cost per print or extra features. The first three of which are, frankly, indistinguishable, while the last continues to astonish.

The SELPHY CP510 and CP710 can print trouble-free 4x6 prints (and even 4x8 panoramas) from your computer or directly from your PictBridge or Canon Direct Print-capable camera. The CP710 adds a card reader and LCD to navigate the card's contents."

"The Canon Selphy CP510 Compact Photo Printer ($99.99 direct) is essentially the Selphy CP710 ($150) without memory card slots or an LCD to preview photos. What makes it interesting is the unusually low price. When we first heard about this printer, we wondered whether it was really the bargain it seems to be. Happily, it is.

The one problem we had with the image quality is the same one we saw with the CP710: In a photo we printed of a bicycle wheel, the spokes look like ragged lines. This problem showed up only when printing from a computer; it did not occur when we printed directly from a digital camera."
