Print photos during your picnic with Canon SELPHY CP770 printer

This portable photo printer looks like a Sanrio lunch bucket for kids, which is perfect actually, as it gives off the impression of something light and easy to carry (which it is). The compact Canon SELPHY CP770 photo printer is one of the newer additions to Canon's SELPHY line of compact photo printers, and seems made for that person who is just so impatient to print photos that he/she must print while the party is still going on.

The actual printer is the top part of the bucket; the basket space is used to store your paper and other supplies. Comes with an A/C cable, but with an optional Canon battery pack, you can take this anywhere. When you're ready to print, you can either insert your camera's memory card into one of the slots on the printer, or print wirelessly from your Bluetooth-enabled camera phone. Maximum paper size is 4x8. Big buttons, large display for previewing your photos (2.5" TFT display), and automatic red-eye correction make this very user-friendly, even for grandma.

Quite a good idea for kids' birthday parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, family reunions and such - because, seriously, who really has time to go back home, print out photos, put them in envelopes and mail them out to people? Of course, you can email digital photos in many different ways, but there are still people who don't know how to (or simply never will) download or print them. Besides, doesn't this printing bucket promise the same kind of fun that we had with Polaroids? Who doesn't like to watch silly images of themselves materialize in their hands while they're still posing?

The SELPHY CP770 is available for $149 at Amazon.
