Malaysians can use their smartphones as well as other wi-fi-capable devices to print their photos using Canon Marketing Malaysia's newly compact photo printer called SELPHY CP900, which is available from September 2012, said the company.
The new printer also supports 54 x 54mm square ratio paper and sticker labels, and integrates with social networking photo-apps such as Instagram, said Canon Marketing Malaysia director of the imaging communication products division, Simon Wong.
"The built in wi-fi capability in the new SELPHY CP900 makes it an extremely convenient and easy to use photo printer. Not only does it allow the printer to connect wirelessly to devices such as laptops, PCs and cameras with its wi-fi capability, but it also connects to today's commonly-used device for photo taking - smartphones," said Wong.
He said that users would be able to print high quality photos of their captured moments instantly and conveniently. "With the Canon Easy-Photo Print app for iOS devices, iPhone and iPad users can easily print photos instantaneously. Android devices are also able to connect wirelessly to the SELPHY CP900 with the aid of a WLAN access point."
The SELPHY CP900's wireless capabilities also support DSP over IP (a standard for interconnecting devices over LAN/wireless) for dedicated cameras to connect and print wirelessly, without the need of a computer, added Wong. "As popular photo-sharing software and apps like Instagram often support square photos, the SELPHY CP900 will be able to support the new 54 x 54mm square ratio paper, also available as sticker labels should users prefer to paste them in notebooks and mini-albums. The SELPHY CP900 also prints photos in other sizes and aspect ratios, such as the popular postcard and passport photo sizes."
For more traditional printing options, the SELPHY CP900 has a memory card slot compatible with the commonly-used SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC/MMCplus/HC MMCplus storage cards, as well as a USB slot for thumb drives and external hard drives.
