ELPH-Size Digital Prints!
16:36 EST - One of the smaller Canon products introduced at PMA this year is the Card Photo Printer CP-10. Sporting a slick translucent blue case and a tiny 4.2 x 4.9 x 1.8-inch footprint, the CP-10 is a perfect fit for the new PowerShot A20, A10, and S300 ELPH digital cameras. When connected via a dedicated interface, the cameras and printer make beautiful thermal-dye-sub prints together -- high-quality output, about the size of a credit-card! (More)
