Promotion designed to increase awareness of Canon's direct photo printing will run from October through December 2003 and will consist of two
different packages - one with the PowerShot A70 digital camera and one with the
The Card Photo Printer CP-200 connects via a USB cable directly to Canon digital
cameras to produce photo prints without the need for a PC. A tiny mini-lab,
the printer uses a dye-sublimation process to produce lab-quality photo prints
with the same high-gloss look and feel as traditional silver-halide photo prints.
With its petite design and a tiny footprint barely larger than the 4"x6"
photos it prints, the CP-200 is small enough to be kept in a drawer .
Released in February this year, the PowerShot A300 and PowerShot A70 digital
cameras both feature 3.2 Megapixel resolution, 5 point AiAF (Artificial intelligence
Auto Focus) for lightning quick and accurate focus, capacity to shoot 180 second
video clips, and Canon's patented DIGIC (Digital Image Core) processing for
super-responsive shooting and excellent colour reproduction. Both cameras are
equipped with a wide range of creative shooting modes, including sepia effect,
black and white and extra vivid colours. The PowerShot A70 features a 3x optical
zoom, 15 ? 1/2000 second shutter speeds and 2.2 fps shooting.
Connect, Select, Print
To print a photo, the camera is directly connected to the Card Photo Printer
CP-200 with a standard USB cable supplied with the bundle. A simple menu on
the camera allows print size, type and quantity to be selected. Within 85 seconds
of selecting 'print', the process is complete.
Regular photo feel
The Card Photo Printer CP-200 builds up full-colour images by merging three
separate colour layers (yellow, magenta and cyan) to reproduce photo-grade tones.
A durable, high-gloss finish is added with a final protective layer.
The printer offers a choice of borderless print sizes: the enduring and popular
4"x6", L-size, card size and mini-stickers. Personal postcards are
now possible within 2 minutes of taking a photo, with pre-printing of postcard
ruling on standard 4"x6" media. To expand printing possibilities,
an optional car cigarette-lighter adapter CBA-CP100 is available.
The Card Photo Printer CP-200 works with all of Canon's latest direct-print
compatible range of digital cameras and all other PictBridge compatible cameras.
PC/Mac drivers come as standard with both the PowerShot A70 and A300 enabling
editing and printing via a computer as well as directly from the camera.
