Why Has it Scored 75?

our review analysis indicates that it has great user reviews but average expert reviews with an average overall rating of 75%, based on 23 reviews. This photo printer has received an "Editor's Choice" award from PC Mag. Looking across the entire Canon photo printer range, the average reviews for all Canon photo printers are also excellent.
At over a year old this photo printer is slightly out of date, and newer photo printers with more up to date technology are available.
It has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Supports Direct Printing (PictBridge)
100 year durable photos
Protective glossy coating
One-minute photolab
Easy to use
Compact with retractable USB cable
Prints without the PC
Your digital camera's ideal partner

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each photo printer by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the photo printer is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec photo printers come to market, the older photo printers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.

    Key Reasons For and Against

    Supports Direct Printing (PictBridge)
    Only 300 x 300 DPI
    Only 10x15 max print size
    Only 300 X 300 DPI

    The SELPHY CP510 has a maximum resolution of 300 x 300 DPI. That's 98% less resolution than the most common resolution of 4800 x 1200 DPI and is in fact the worst resolution amongst all photo printers.

    An 8000 x 6000 DPI resolution is the best resolution amongst comparable types of photo printer.

The biggest month in 2018 for new Canon photo printer releases was May, with five new Canon photo printers released that month. Four new Canon photo printers were released in August 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new Canon photo printer releases.

    On average, in the first 6 months after release, Canon photo printers drop in price by 6%.

    If you are prepared to wait then you could save an average of £13 on a typical £228 new Canon photo printer by waiting 6 months before buying.
