Best Compact Canon Photo Printers

Posted by Greg Nowak on

Which are the best compact Canon photo printers available on the market? We have examined and compared a few. Have a look at our choice of the best dedicated compact photo printers.

What would be the most advanced wireless portable Canon photo printer?

The SELPHY CP1200. It is easy to use due to its compact modifications or design, wireless printing, and an optional battery. Before you print, you can add frames and effects to your photos. Once the picture is all dressed up, you can print it in several different ways. You can print on a label size, postcard size paper, square, and even eight small stickers one at a time. In case you want to print a photo for an ID,the SELPHY CP1200 has 43 built-in ID sizes so you can avoid a hassle of searching. USB drive and running down to your local convenience store. It is effortless to print your pictures because it lets you do it in any way you will want it.

Is rechargeable battery included in the package or do I have to buy it extra?

No. You have to get a separate battery. You can search for it online. Our experience shows that one battery lasts a little over two hours so you might as well get two.

When we talk about the best compact Canon photo printers, which one is better - CP1200 or CP910?

CP1200 is a little bigger than CP910. It is also heavier, but the size of the screen is the same. CP1200 has an inbuilt charger for the battery. With CP910, you have to buy a separate charger which is, in our opinion, expensive and it adds unnecessary clutter. CP1200 comes with a few extra settings, but nothing exceptional. CP1200 has a dedicated wifi button. Wifi specs are the same, however. Print resolution is the same, and the range of printing sizes is thesame. If you don't own The SELPHY, then it makes sense to go for the CP1200. If you are an owner of the CP910, save yourself a few dollars.

Do they come with ink?

You have to buy ink separately. The ink comes with the paper. Once the paper is used, the ink ribbon is used up also.

Is The SELPHY compatible with Mac OS Sierra and Windows 10?

It runs with Mac OS Sierra. We haven't found any official driver for Windows 10 though. The printer works best if it is used with a mobile device.

What other devices could be counted among the best compact Canon photo printers?

Canon PIXMA iP 110 is also an excellent printer. It delivers very crisp text documents and high-resolution photographs. It is very compact thanks to the fact that it uses one multi-colored ink cartridge and one black cartridge (it does not have separate tanks for cyan, magenta, yellow, etc.). It operates via a USB cable or wirelessly (the cable does not come with the printer). The printer is capable of handling different paper sizes. The printer contains warning lamps which tell you when the ink is low (you don't end up wasting paper sending documents that come out faded). You can print from your mobile device (Android and iOS apps are available), just as from your PC.
