Canon U.S.A. Inc. on Monday introduced four new Pixma photo all-in-one printers and three new Selphy compact photo printer models, all refreshed for fall.
The Selphy printer line are 4 x 6 inch photo printers. The new CP510 and CP710 models are designed as portable models; the new DS810 is a dedicated home printer model.
The CP510 and CP710 both feature dye-sublimation technology. They print borderless “postcard” prints at 300 dot per inch (DPI) resolution in 58 seconds, and have been designed to replace the CP400 model. The CP510 model will be available in September; the CP710 model is coming in October.
The CP510 is the first Selphy model to cost less than $100. At US$99.99, it features a built-in USB cable that’s retractable, and can operate from a wall jack or using an optional rechargeable battery. The printers can both output directly from a Pictbridge-compatible digital camera or from a Mac or PC. Both printers feature an additional USB port as well.
The CP710 touts a 1.5-inch color LCD screen and built-in memory card slots for CompactFlash, Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard and Memory Stick formats. It costs US$149.99. The printers both include drivers and application software, but template software is available for Windows only.
The Selphy DS810 Compact Photo Printer has been designed to work from home, but it’s smaller than a conventional design printer. It features 4800 x 1200 DPI inkjet technology, taking about 63 seconds to output 4 x 6 inch photos. It works with PictBridge-enabled cameras, so you don’t need a computer for it to work.
It also features built-in memory card slots for CompactFlash, Microdrive, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, SD Card and MultimediaCard media, USB for connecting to a Mac or PC, and a 2.5-inch color LCD screen. It supports semi-gloss, glossy, sticker and matte photo finishes. The DS810 supports Canon’s “ChromaLife100” inks, which will resist fading for up to 100 years when printed on Canon photo papers.
Look for the Selphy DS810 to hit store shelves in September for US$149.99.

Canon also launched four new Pixma Photo All-in-One printers. The Pixma Photo All-in-One printers feature the ability to print, copy and scan documents and images, and the new models feature the ChromaLife 100 system and other features, including built-in memory card and PictBridge support, USB 2.0 interfaces and more.
The new Pixma MP800 Photo All-In-One features a 3.5-inch color LCD, 9600 x 2400 DPI output, PictBridge and memory card support. It features duplex (two-sided) printing and can scan 35mm slides at up to 19200 x 19200 DPI resolution. It will cost US$299.97.
