Canon’s superlative digital cameras are specifically designed to help photographers of all skill levels produce unparalleled images with speed and ease. Canon brings the same level of commitment to printing and sharing of those images with the PIXMA and SELPHY photo printers; print either through a direct cable connection or wirelessly (available only on select models). From card-size photos printed on-the-fly to exhibition-quality fine art prints, there’s a Canon printer that’s just right, no matter the photographer, no matter the skill level. With advanced technologies for rich and vivid prints that will last a lifetime, Canon printers ensure you’ll produce the perfect print at the fastest possible speed.


Canon’s Direct Print system lets you make beautiful prints from your Canon digital cameras quickly, easily and without the use of a computer. Canon PowerShot and EOS digital cameras can be connected directly to Canon PIXMA or SELPHY photo printers. It’s simple: just connect your camera to the printer, press the button to print and watch your long-lasting, lab-quality photos print right before your eyes. It’s even possible to pick and print a still image from your HD videos (recorded with compatible Canon PowerShot or EOS digital cameras) using HD Movie Print, so you can turn every favorite moment into an amazing photo.


Canon gives you the opportunity to create personalized photo books with select PowerShot models. Simply choose the pictures you want to make into a photo book and the camera will automatically designate a folder containing the chosen photos. When using ZoomBrowser EX, ImageBrowser or CameraWindow to transfer images to your computer, you can use your home printer to print out the photo book or order it through the Internet.
