    Hi does anybody own a new canon compact card photo printer?

    I have a couple of questions that i cant seem to get answered...

    a) are they any good, which one is better or best?
    b) can a olympus c150 be attached to it via direct or through a pc?

    Many thanks in advance :smashin:

    Find out if yours is a PictBridge supported digital camera. If its not then you ca'nt use it

    " The CP-200 and CP-300 are also Pictbridge technology-compatible. Pictbridge technology is a new worldwide direct printing standard that allows any Pictbridge technology-compatible printer to print directly from any Pictbridge-technology compatible digital camera"


    Very good printers mate. But unless you're are going to use on the go. They are a bit pricey.

    My friend has bought the 300. He is going to use it to take pics at events and sell them to the punters. Not a bad idea i guess

    Ah sorry i should of said i understand the idea of pictbridge, however am i right in saying you can connect the cp to your pc and print using any digital camera (e.g like a normal printer)?

    I'm only asking as the woman has an olympus and i am thinking of buying a christmas present for myself - canon A60 (£130) :D

    ok ok ok, i understand a canon cam will work with a canon cp printer - but will a third party digital camera (olympus c150, non pictbridge) still work ??? I am still searching but nobody seems to have a straight answer... :confused: :rolleyes: :confused:

    If you run the camera through the pc first, then yes you can print to it. Is that what you mean? But you can't direct print to it if your camera does not have pictbridge

    I still would not buy one for use at home though. If one of you is going to use it as a normal printer, there are better options for less. One of the reasons that makes the 300 popular (and pricy) is it's portability. What good would that be if you just used it at home?
