Canon last month launched the SELPHY CP 1300, a stylish, compact printer for instant prints and creations. Here in our InPrint News section, we delve deep into the key features and functions of this product

Designed to make lasting memories with lab-quality photos, SELPHY CP 1300 allows users to connect and print directly from their smartphone or camera. The sleek new printer enables users to print photos anywhere, whether at home or away, with built in Wi-Fi connectivity. Simple to use, the SELPHY CP 1300 enables users to get creative with their prints, offering a range of finishes and size options.

The SELPHY CP 1300 features an 8.1 cm (3.2”) tilting LCD screen for easy viewing and convenience and allows users to take professional quality levels of printing to their home. This innovative new product can print up to 256 shades of each colour, resulting in a total of 16.3 million possible colours to produce vibrant photos for the user.

At the simple touch of a button, users can choose from gloss and three semi-gloss print finishes without the need to change the paper or ink and in less than 60 seconds users can have beautiful lab-quality photos in their hands.

SELPHY CP 1300 automatically recognises the subject and background of images to remove noise and enhance colour for extra clarity and brightness. Meanwhile, the printer is compatible with both Apple iOS™ and Android™ devices; using AirPrint™ and Mopria® respectively so users can print from their device without the need to download an app. The handy SD slot means users can print seamlessly without having to transfer a single picture to any other device.

By adding a high capacity battery pack for peace of mind, the lightweight SELPHY CP 1300 can be slipped in a bag and taken to family parties, so memories can be captured and printed instantly. The Canon PRINT app allows everyone to get involved and connect to the printer with Shuffle Print. Groups can share multiple images to create unique collages with up to eight shots to cherish those family moments.

SELPHY CP 1300 is the ideal printer for users wanting more creative choice at the same time as optimising the quality of their prints. For lab-quality printing from cameras or smartphones, SELPHY CP 1300 is a cost-effective way for users to print anywhere at the touch of a button.

The Canon SELPHY CP 1300 will be available later this month in black, white and pink with an RRP of £129,99. For further information, please visit
