We did not find any difficulty in operating the Canon Selphy CP780 photo printer. Only the hardest part and require that we search for clues of the manual is the installation of photo paper in tray is included.
The rest is easy. Ribbon cartridge for instance, stay encouraged goes into slot on the right side. Adapter – a hefty weight of it-also no hassle installation, because only there is a jack that fit her in the body of the printer. Just then, and the printer is ready to use.
It's a pity we are not loaned by a battery that can make this tiny portable printer aliases could be invited to print without nets-nets are connected to electricity. Battery NB-CP2L indeed must be purchased separately. Be, we didn't get to test the performance of the printer when using battery power. However it is said that the battery power is sufficient to print 36 Postcard-sized photographs.
That is also our love, in packages which we borrow, there was no USB cable. Consequently we can not test the performance of the printer when connected to a computer. But at the moment these are connected, we can use a CD containing the software to add a border or other interesting effects.
Any voice guidance – through the speakers on your computer – to be had in this State. It's a shame because it does not have a USB cable, the voice guidance that we get are merely words that says the printer is not connected to the computer.
But never mind, forget about it with a computer and connection aspect of portability. We focus ourselves on the facilities available. Printer setup, such as we have alluded to above, it's easy.
On the front of the printer's dye-sublimation – the left side--there are three slots, one each for CompactFash/Micro Drive, SecureDigital (SD) and Memory Stick (MS). A total of 20 variants of memory cards that can be accepted and printed contents immediately by Selphy CP780.
Live push memory cards we have, then the contents of the card will be read by the printer. Of course before we've had to turn on the printer by pressing the button On the grey.
Mark wants to be printed
Now, we just mark where the photos to be printed. The trick, press a small button called Copies + above the OK button that is located right in the middle. If the photo is printed twice wanted to press until appears in the display number 2. If you only want one printed, press once. If not so that printing photos, press the small button under OK button to cancel the selection, which will bring up the 0.
For choosing their existing photos on your memory card, press the button on the left and right of the OK button. In its packaging, the Canon include the PostCard-sized photo paper pack as many as 36 sheets. Insert the photo paper tray is included, then push go into the front of the printer (after the opening slot of course). Well the photos are ready to print.
Set The First Dong
Wait a minute. Do you want to make other arrangements? For example, print two, four, eight photos at once (same or different) in one paper? Or change the color photo into a sepia or black and white even? Or would like photos printed without fringes (borderless), or vice versa with fringe (bordered)? Want to date photographs printed below the photo? If Yes, press the Menu button to select and perform these settings. Press OK after the settings are completed.
Well after all is OK, click the right-most button green, aka the Print button. Well, the pictures you have selected will start being printed as you want.
When we try, the PostCard-sized photo (4x6 inches)-printed finished in borderless in the range of time 1 min 20.60 sec – 1 minutes 7.22 seconds. If the same two pictures are printed on one paper with fringe (bordered) and added the date, the time is slightly shorter: 57.84 – 59.91 seconds. However, if the selected image is different, the time it takes can be increased to 1 minutes 6.07 seconds – 1 minute 16.34 seconds. Printing four different image in borderless takes 1 minutes 27.56 seconds.
Exit Enter 4 x
When printed, the photos will come out of paper/printer entry four times. First, the paper is ejected to the rear of the printer, and then pulled in to receive printing yellow color. The paper later issued again, and sign in again to colored red. The same process is done to the color blue. Finally, the paper will come out/sign in to receive a special layer (overcoat) that make it shiny, and dry.
O ya, don't worry if the photo paper runs out when you press the Print button. On the screen will appear a message that the paper run out and you are prompted to enter the new paper. And so embedded in the photo paper tray, printing processes will continue. No need to repeat the process from the beginning.
While working, the printer will produce a sound somewhat noisy.
Selphy CP780 print quality is good. Colors looks smooth and tereproduksi accurate. This is with the exception of black color which is less concentrated. ' Shortage ' caused the black color comes from a blend of CMY, and not from its own black color.
Have and use the Canon Selphy CP780 photo printer it's fun. Cool it's like looking at the pictures it produced fast and good.
However there are two notes. First, Canon needs to provide a better way in airing the image on the LCD screen of the printer. There may be several screening options image and jump per the image as in the digital camera. For if the memory card contains hundreds of photos in some folders, definitely take time choosing their where to be printed is not it?
The second entry, the price of packaging paper and Photo cartridge need to be more pressed by Canon so that the average cost per print painting could be closer to print postage on photo outlets.
