great little printer Jan 05, 2007
By S. O.
I received the cp720 model along with a canon digital camera and I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of prints that this prints- I would have believed that these photos were printed from a lab if I didn't know otherwise.
The replacement ink cartridge is extremely easy to use and replace, no mess. They are designed for a specific number of prints and they work great right up until the end, so there are no faded pictures when your ink is low.
The photo paper is very nice, thick stock, and glossy, with perforated edges.
You are limited to paper by the manufacturer, but refills are reasonably priced, compared to getting prints professionally made.

Selphy 730 Jan 09, 2007
By Steven J. Rosenstein
This printer does an excellent job. The colors are vivid and the clarity is
very crisp. The only negative is you are restricted to the canon paper with end tabs. Good value for a compact snap shot printer.

Changed my correspondence life May 26, 2007
By Thomas Ahern
What do you call people like me? Photo-aspirants? I'm not a professional photographer. But I shoot images all the time, sometimes a dozen or two a day, trying to create a picture other people will find curious, entertaining, weird, surprising, silly, shocking: "refrigerator-quality," I guess.
Kris Hermanns told me her mother had a device like this, that printed postcards from digital cameras. I bought it on that slight recommendation. I had a new Canon PowerShot A620. I had a trip to France on the calendar. Kismet.
I've always used film. I was a film snob: I wanted beautiful images. The first photo that came off this Selphy CP730 printer blew me across the room. The color was intense, perfect, gorgeous; and in my hand in less than a minute, printed on glossy stock with a postcard back. I compared it to a film print and couldn't tell the difference. It was this printer, in fact, that convinced me that digital photography was as good as film. Not just "as good as" -- better, because of the control you have over color. Anybody want some aging, unexposed film? I've never gone back.
My system (which I sometimes pack up and travel with) includes my Canon digital camera, the Selphy printer, my MacBook loaded with iPhoto (which allows me to manipulate). It's a seamless, no-issues production process. I often pump out a half-dozen curious images a day, to send to friends, colleagues, family. It keeps me in touch with them at low cost. When we have our big summer party, I'll also use the Selphy to print out the invitations (created in Photoshop, so I can add text).
I sent a Selphy to my sister-in-law, Aimee, who IS an art and professional photographer; and she loves it, too.

Great Portable 'ipod-like' Styling Photo Printer! Sep 25, 2006
Actually, this is CP720 review, but the spec of CP730 is almost same except 2.0 LCD, Image Cropping Function, Battery Operated, multi format media, My Colors photo effects, Wireless printing with IrDA.
I have bought two CP720 for $99.00 each from local store. It has several useful functions like 1.5 inch LCD preview monitor, multi layout control, built in USB cable and card reader... Print quality is excellent with anti-smudge coating, you can not tell the difference with print from Photo Lab or even better. Printing time takes less than 2 min. Delivering high quality photos that last for up to 100 years. Highly recommend this printer for people who want to print snap photos by themselves. Furthermore, upgrade version CP730 has battery operated option, so you can get nice photo lab quality print at anytime, anywhere.
CONs; 28¢ per print. Easy to get dust spot on the final image while 3 pass print processing. No image Cropping function(But $50 more CP730 has it!)

Excellent Photo Quality But Cropping is Awkward Jan 28, 2007
By R. N. Enrick
Picture sharpness is excellent, but some images print darker than they should. Cropping is my only real complaint. The controls are awkward and, worse, not fine enough. It's often difficult to frame everything you want and not what you don't want because the available cropping settings are inadequate. There's no technical reason for this limitation, Canon just didn't provide fine enough control of that feature.
