The Canon SELPHY CP730 is a mid-range dye-sublimation printer intended only for photo printing use, and has similar features to the CP710 model. The CP730 is portable and compact and has an optional rechargeable battery pack. It connects to PictBridg-enabled digital cameras with a USB interface, and can use an optional wireless Bluetooth adapter to print from Bluetooth devices. It also has a built-in 2.0" LCD screen, larger than the other CP700 models, that allows previewing of images from memory cards. It can print 4" x 6" prints in about one minute and the maximum printing size is 4" x 8", which takes about 75 seconds. Max print resolution is 300 x 300 dpi with 256 levels per color and each photo is finished with a UV- and water-resistant protective coating. Photos are supposed to be long-lasting, and the CP730 also has a built-in image color optimizer that enhances lighting and reduces red-eye.
