Excerpt: One of the smallest photo printers, the Canon Compact Photo Printer CP-330 is one of two dye-sub devices (the other being the Kodak). As such, it uses a roll of solid ink that's fused onto the page in four passes, the last one sealing things off with a velvet-smooth, protective layer. It prints at 300 x 300dpi, which is lower than the others on test. However, as it effectively produces continuous tones, the results are comparable to a high-street print.
Excerpt: Canon got its timing spot on with this one. Kodak and HP are already out there with dedicated photo printers, and Epson is poised to launch its competitor, the PictureMate. Canon's offering, the CP-330 is about the size of a chunky paperback (think Lord of the Rings), is housed in a smart, silver casing and is both Direct Print and PictBridge aware, so will talk to compatible digital cameras without being plugged into your Mac.
