Summary: Purchased new, on/off button is problematic....takes a while to get it to turn on, sometimes it won't work and you have to remove and re-install ink cartridge and paper tray for it to work. I didn't know this was now an obslete printer from Canon...they do not even carry the supplies for it...there's a modern version several grades higher than this.
Summary: All I have ever gotten is a few great pics out of this. Initially it came with ink cartridge and 6 pics. Those were great. Then I had unresolvable feeder problems. I couldn't resolve it and I had to feed it each photo 1 at a time. The ink replacement costs as much as the printer and the yield is much lower then claimed. I will stay with Canon because I usually have more bad feed problems with HP. Also the photo comes out crisper/sharper.
Summary: The printer itself prints good photos. The biggest drawback is you have to buy the Canon replacement cartridge which comes with paper. I already have paper but I can't use it because I have no options other than to buy the way they pack. There needs to be an alternative to buy just the cartridge. I would think about it before I bought it - if you already have photo paper.
Summary: This printer was awesome...while it worked. I had it for a year and used it pretty regularly, but not so much that I would expect it to break so quickly. The loading wheels on the printer would no longer pick-up the paper, telling me that I was out of paper. I was disappointed not only because I really liked this printer, but Canon's customer service solution was to buy a new one.
Summary: This unit is easy to use and makes great looking prints however as my wife found out after her first weekend trip with it, it crops off the top and bottom of the picture file. I bought her the package which included the Canon 520 camera and this printer. She printed out pictures of people and found the tops of heads cutoff.
Summary: I've long been a fan of and advocate for Canon products, but this printer is a let down, and will be returned. The primary problem is consistency. I've printed the same photo 5 times (it comes with an ink cassette and "postcard sized" paper for 5 prints), each time the resulting print has some errors, generally yellowish blotches, a speck here and there. etc. It seems like it could be caused by what would have to be microscopic dust, but that's speculative.
Excerpt: La stampante è affascinante da guardare mentre stampa, ma complessivamente non mi ha soddisfatto. Innanzitutto la CP510 è un modello piuttosto "base": non comprende il display, non ha gli slot per inserire le schedine di memoria, e non ha la batteria ricaricabile, ma si può alimentare solo con la corrente elettrica. E' compatibile con molte fotocamere, anche non canon. Per stampare la Selphy ha bisogno di un kit di carta e inchiostro, che costa ...
Pros: Stampa immediata - compatibile con molte fotocamere anche non canon
Cons: Stampa foto scure - taglia fuori parte della fotografia
