3 steps to instant photos

1. Connect your Canon digital camera to the Card Photo Printer CP-300.

2. Select an image.

3. Press print.

  • Printer drivers and Canon software are also included so you have the option to print through your PC or Mac.

  • Highly finished photo prints
    This compact and portable printer delivers high speed, highly finished photo prints in just 85 seconds. Dye-sublimation printing reproduces photograde tones and colours to a very high standard and coats each print with a protective layer to prevent degrading. The use of Canon paper and ink not only ensures durable, long lasting photos but also a quality to your prints equal to professional printing.
    Multiple media sizes
    You can control Canon’s smallest printer from your Canon digital camera’s LCD monitor. Choose from the different media sizes and various paper options available - including sticker and postcard size plus border or borderless prints. Whatever media you use, the paper and cartridges are sold together and are easy to replace.
    Battery pack included
    A dedicated battery pack with the printer’s built-in battery charger function means you can print wherever you are – outdoors or on the move. One rechargeable battery pack is included with this portable printer.
    The Card Photo Printer CP-300 is designed to be ready for PictBridge, a new print standard. This standard enables any digital camera that supports PictBridge to connect and print to any PictBridge compliant printer.
    Optional accessories
    The optional car battery adaptor kit means that you can print or recharge your battery while being on the move. An optional battery charger can also be used to recharge additional batteries while the printer is in use somewhere else.
