January 5, 2007, Newsletter Issue #20: Canon Blurs the Line on Compact Photo Printers

Tip of the Week

To make photo quality prints from your digital images, just plug a printer into your computer, right? Well, maybe not…

At least maybe not when the printer is a Canon Selphy DS700. While many printers beside the Selphy print directly from PictBridge compatible cameras, and many others have built-in memory card slots, and some also print from infrared-equipped cell phones, how many are made to plug into your TV?

TV? That's right: Canon has designed the DS700 to function as a part of your home entertainment system, further blurring the line between TV and computer. Plug a memory card into the Selphy DS700… review (and even rotate) images on your TV screen using the Selphy's remote… and when you see a shot you like, just tell it to print. In about a minute, you'll have a 4” x 6” print.
