Canon SELPHY CP730
Released January, 2001
The Pros:Photo prints look like they came from the lab, very high quality. Easy to replace the ink cartridge even for entry-level users. Photo paper designed for the printer feels like nice, thick stock that makes a nice keepsake when you have your print.
The Cons:Need to use the paper from the manufacturer to get good prints. Cost per print is fairly high including the ink.

It connects to PictBridg-enabled digital cameras with a USB interface, and can use an optional wireless Bluetooth adapter to print from Bluetooth devices. It also has a built-in 2.0" LCD screen, larger than the other CP700 models, that allows previewing of images from memory cards. It can print 4" x 6" prints in about one minute and the maximum printing size is 4" x 8", which takes about 75 seconds. Max print resolution is 300 x 300 dpi with 256 levels per color and each photo is finished with a UV- and water-resistant protective coating. Photos are supposed to be long-lasting, and the CP730 also has a built-in image color optimizer that enhances lighting and reduces red-eye.
