Summary: I've used a CP-710 for a couple of years for printing 4X6 "give-away"snapshots and love the quality of the prints. The clear overcoat is a BIG bonus that no one seems to mention. The prints are very rugged and waterproof so can be sent through the mail as postcards with no worries. Try that with most ink jet prints. The dye-sub prints have good contrast and saturation, without being "super-saturated" like some ink-jet printers.
Summary: This printer is great and its a wonderful buy. Pros- High quality prints Print from either camera(pict bridge)or memory stick Usb connection to computer if you wish Cons- Ink carts are expensive compared to ink for other printers limit of 108 pics per box of ink and paper needs a certain type of paper to print i would suggest this printer for someone that only prints limited amounts of prints and also for someone that likes high quality prints
Summary: I can't believe how much this little printer has changed my way of taking pictures. Signing up to be my little girl's Kindergarten room mother was an idea of lunacy. However, this printer has made it quite fun. I took 200 pictures of kids with Santa, and many parents who couldn't afford the big shopping mall expedition were tickled with their $2 picture that looked like it came out of a studio. I'm geared up to repeat this success for the Spring Festival.
Summary: I use my printer as needed. Unlike the ink jet printers, the dye in this printer will never dry up. The picture quality is good enough in general. I wish the print size could be a little bit bigger than it is.
Summary: Will not recognize 99% of the photos stored on my hard drive including those taken with a Canon camera. Will not work with iPhoto. Customer service reps are zip help. Configuring print options is definately not intuitive.
Summary: The reviews of the Selphy 710 are great, but I found the printer to be ridiculously inflexible and very difficult to find supplies for. And, by the way, when Canon says that it prints "postcard" sized paper, what they really mean is that the unit prints postcards-- divided backs and a rectangle for a stamp included. No alternatives-- take it or leave it.
Summary: I've used the Canon CP330 for a couple of years now, and it's been great, but the new Selphy CP710 takes picture printing performance to the next level. The 710 uses the same paper and ink cartridge system, but prints faster than the older model. It also adds a memory card reader, and an LCD display for picture selection and minor editing.
