New Canon photo printers
Canon today announced , the CP-220 and CP-330, which allow users to print pictures directly from a digital camera. The printers support three different paper sizes: 4"x8" for greeting cards or invitations, 4x"6" for postcard size prints, or credit-card size pictures. Canon says the printers can create water- and fade-resistant prints that last as long as traditional film prints in as little as 85 seconds. The printers will also allow consumers to print thumbnail sequences from movie clips from select Canon PowerShot digital cameras. The printers measure about 6.75"x4.75"x2.15" and weigh less than two pounds. Both are bundled with a 4"x6" paper tray and a compact power adapter, while the CP-330 model also comes equipped with a tray for the 4"x8" size and a rechargeable battery pack. The CP-330 is due in April for $280, while the CP-220 will ship in May 2004 for $180.
