5 February 2014 – In bringing its consumers’ experience of capturing precious moments to yet another level, Canon, the world leader in Digital Imaging has proudly announced the launch of two new and innovative products – the PowerShot S200 compact digital camera and SELPHY CP910 Compact Photo Printer.
An introductory model, the PowerShot S200 effectively combines supreme imaging capabilities with a slim pocket-sized camera body. This feature-packed camera is easy to use and designed to help users make full use of its features, making it an ideal solution for those who want to start taking more control over their images instead of just relying on Auto mode. With its intuitive Controller Wheel and Control Ring, users are able to adjust the exposure, ISO, zoom and shutter speed settings quickly and conveniently to start shooting like a pro.
The PowerShot S200 also incorporates Canon’s proprietary DIGIC 5 imaging processor, allowing users to evaluate and optimise the quality of images captured. It also features a 10.1 megapixel high-sensitivity CCD sensor and 5x 24-120mm f/2.0 (w) optical zoom lens for increased depth-of-field in images.
Meanwhile, the S200’s 3” LCD Panel, Live View Control and Eco Mode makes it easier for users to view and manage captured images. All these features ensure that the images captured are as envisioned by users.
As with any efficient modern device, the PowerShot S200 comes with an in-built Wi-Fi, enabling users to instantly share and sync images with other wireless enabled devices. With this Wi-Fi function, users can also send images to print directly from the S200 to the SELPHY CP910.
Besides printing directly from a wireless enabled camera such as the PowerShot S200, the SELPHY CP910 can be used as a mobile access point as well. This allows convenient Wi-Fi connectivity to other devices such as smart phones, tablets and computers without the need for an external router. As such, users are also able to print images directly using their mobile devices.
Additionally, the SELPHY CP910 will delight iOS users as it comes with Apple AirPrint support, allowing them to print images stored on their iPhone, iPad and/or Mac without additional printer drivers. Android users are also able to enjoy an enhanced printing experience directly from their mobile device.
When it comes to printing different photo sizes, SELPHY CP910 certainly leads the way as it is capable of printing 43 different types of photo ID sizes, as opposed to the traditional 28 sizes using other printers. Besides that, users are able to select their desired print finish via the printer’s settings for standard glossy prints, or by selecting one of two other patterns for a toned down textured effect.
The SELPHY CP910 is also the first printer in its range to utilise Canon’s new RP series of ink cartridges. Designed to help users save in costs, the high-efficiency RP series of ink cartridges allows users to print up to 54 sheets without needing to change cartridges. This effectively reduces downtime as well as minimises the risk of dust or dirt entering the printer during cartridge change.
The PowerShot S200 comes in black and white and is available at RM1,119, while the SELPHY CP910 is retailed at RM499 and is also available in black or white. Both models are available at selected Canon authorised outlets.
