Guide Review - Canon Selphy CP760 Compact Photo Printer
The 4x6 paper is fed from a tray that plugs into the front of the printer, and while printing the photo ejects almost completely from the back between passes. That adds some space to the otherwise small footprint of the printer (you could pack at least two into a shoebox), but that seems a minor quibble.
Prints come out fairly fast; somewhere between a minute and a minute-and-a-half, depending on how you connect (the Selphy can connect to a computer or camera via USB; to a camera via PictBridge; and can take various media cards as well).
The Selphy was very easy to set up; just plug it in, attach your camera or computer, and start printing. You're limited to what you can print; the paper cassette holds 4x6 paper though the printer can print up to a 4x8 photo, but that doesn't seem like much of a problem for a compact printer. Some basic editing features, such as red-eye removal, are built in and easy to use. The printer features only a small number of buttons, so there's not much you can do wrong.
