Canon has added the Selphy CP740 to its line of compact dye-sub printers. The 2.1-pound model outputs 4x6, 4x8, and smaller prints, and features a two-inch LCD, memory card slots, and a retractable USB cable for connecting to a computer. It can receive images from USB-connected Pictbridge-compatible cameras, and from camera phones via an optional Bluetooth adapter.

Built-in photo-editing features include automatic red-eye removal and print layout templates. Canon claims the CP740 takes approximately 58 seconds to produce a 4x6 print.

The Selphy CP740 will be available in Fall 2007 for $99.99.

Canon has introduced two new all-in-one devices that combine printing, scanning, and copying functions. The Pixma MP470 and MP210 both output documents and 4800x1200 color photo prints at sizes up to 8x10. The printers use a two-cartridge, four-color system with dye-based ChromaLife100 inks, and both feature built-in memory card slots, as well as Pictbridge support for direct printing via USB. The MP470 supports an optional Bluetooth adapter for receiving images wirelessly, and incorporates a 1.8-inch LCD.

For flatbed scanning, the MP470 offers 2400x4800, 48-bit capture and the MP210 captures 48-bit scans at 600x1200. Both can interpolate scanned images up to 19,200x19,200. Both devices also have Canon's Advanced Z-Lid for scanning objects as thick as 15mm.

The two devices offer Canon's new AutoImage Fix feature, which automatically analyzes photographs and matches them to a scene mode such as Portrait or Scenery, then optimizes the images accordingly. They also employ a new Quick Start feature for powering up almost instantly.

The $100 MP470 and $80 MP210 will be available in August 2007.
