With its striking yellow-and-white colour scheme, the Canon Selphy CP770 is a direct photo printer that really stands out.
Lightweight and practical, the Canon Selphy CP770 has a bucket design complete with detachable handle. When you're not using it you can store all the attachments and leads in the bucket and clip the handle back on to carry it to the nearest cupboard.
But it's not just the Canon Selphy CP770's design that impresses us.
The Canon Selphy CP770 can print from SD, MMC, Memory Stick or CompactFlash memory cards, from a camera over USB (cable supplied) or directly from a PictBridge-compatible camera. You can buy a separate Bluetooth connector to print wirelessly from a mobile phone.
You need to buy photo paper separately, however.
To print, simply plug in a memory card or camera and use the navigation buttons to scroll through the images. You can preview these on the 2.5in LCD display on top of the Canon Selphy CP770.
The Canon Selphy CP770's Menu button accesses settings options that include turning date stamps on or off, removing red-eye and adding sepia or black and white effects.
You can change the layout or the number of photos per page and apply image optimisation — a feature commonly found on digital cameras which, in practice, we found made little difference.
The Canon Selphy CP770 prints at a fixed resolution of 300dpi and took 44 seconds to produce a clear and bright credit-card sized sticker featuring our chosen image. Times differ slightly for larger images: we certainly noticed a difference with image optimisation turned on.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.
The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.
My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
