Our take on the Canon Selphy™ CP760

by Dave Bar

This tiny, travel-friendly printer gives you a great way to share memories instantly with your friends and loved ones. Take it along to birthday parties, family reunions, or other memorable events. You can create vivid 4" x 6" prints on the spot that look like they're fresh from the photo lab.

The CP760 is a snap to use. Just connect your compatible digital camera via an optional USB cable, or insert your memory card into one of its card slots. Then scroll through your shots using the CP760's built-in 2-1/2" color LCD screen to find the image you want to print. Easy automatic settings enhance the brightness and color of your pictures, even reducing picture-spoiling red-eye. In about a minute, you'll have a vibrant 4" x 6" copy that rivals the look and feel of a professionally processed photo.

Inputs and Outputs


Overview: The Canon SELPHY CP760 allows you to produce prints that match the appearance and long-life of images produced by traditional film processes. Engineered for superior picture quality, this printer has a resolution of 300 x 300 dpi and 256 gradations (levels) per color (Yellow, Cyan, and Magenta), so you can create richly detailed prints.

Dye Sublimation Technology: Dye-Sublimation technology controls the ink flow to deliver a full range of realistic tones and shadings, so color is natural and true-to-life. For durability, the SELPHY CP760 adds a transparent, protective over coating to each print that shields it from the damaging effects of sunlight and humidity.

Memory Card Slot: The printer has three slots on the front panel to allow you to print from various types of memory cards. The printer can accommodate the following memory cards:

SD Slot MS Slot

SD Memory Card
miniSD Card¹
microSD Card²
SDHC Memory Card
miniSDHC Card¹
microSDHC Card²
MMCplus Card
HC MMCplus Card
MMCmobile Card
MMCmicro Card²

Memory Stick

CF Slot

CompactFlash Card

¹ Card aligns with guides on bottom of slot.
² Special Adapter required

Direct Connection: You can connect this printer directly to a camera via USB if the camera supports Canon Direct Print or PictBridge. A Type A USB port on the left side of the printer allows you to connect your camera directly, using the USB cable supplied with your camera.

PictBridge Printing: You can connect this printer directly to a PictBridge compliant digital camera. PictBridge is an industry standard that allows you to connect a PictBridge-compliant digital camera directly to a PictBridge-compliant printer and make prints, regardless of brand.

Wireless Printing via Bluetooth: With the optional BU-30 Bluetooth adapter you can print wirelessly from Bluetooth-compatible mobile phones or PDAs.

Print Sizes: This printer can make various sizes of bordered or borderless prints. Each size of paper requires the use of a cassette for that specific size. The printer can print the following size prints:

Print Size Borderless Bordered
Postcard Size 3.94" x 5.83" 3.59" x 4.79"
L Size 3.5" x  4.69" 3.1" x 4.14"

0.87" x 0.68" N/A
Wide Size 3.94" x 7.87" 3.59" x 4.79"

Note: The printer includes 5 postcard-size sheets of paper and a print cartridge with the capacity to print 5 postcard-size prints.

Printing Speed: The printer speed is essentially the same for prints produced from a Memory Card or when the camera is connected directly to the printer. The print speeds for the various sizes of prints are as follows:

  • Postcard Size: 52 seconds
  • L Size: 43 seconds
  • Card Size: 25 seconds
  • Wide Size: 65 seconds

Note: Print speed is measured from the start of the yellow printing pass to the final output.

Really Quick Prints

Written By vkeswani, Houston, TX on Sunday, September 20, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The printer does print really well, took me a few minutes to figure out how the paper cartridge only goes in 1/2 an inch.

What I didn't see mentioned in the reviews is how fast the prints come out, barely 20 - 30 seconds. Its simple and works great for home passport photos etc.

Canon Selphy Printer

Written By Scott, Petaluma, CA on Friday, July 17, 2009
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
This is a great little printer. I bought one for my wife who loves to print pictures of the grand kids, etc. but can't be bothered downloading files to a computer and then viewing them through some program and then printing. With this printer you just put the memory card into the printer and print the picture you want. And if you don't use it for a while the ink cartridges don't dry up. Now I'm going to buy one for my mother-in-law.
