This compact photo printer produces quality photos, but it's not all that quick about it.

Slow print speed ; Printing sometimes misaligns photos

Style, convenience and quality are packed into the cute Canon Selphy ES1 photo printer. It's one of the best dye-sub models on the market and is capable of producing vibrant, detailed pictures in just over a minute. Sluggish operating system aside,...

Colourful prints ; Quiet in action ; Good build quality ; Small size

Sluggish operating system ; Having to buy new cartridges all the time

The ES1 was so good that it was easy to spot the difference between images taken on an older 4-megapixel Nikon rather than the 6-megapixel Kodak V610. This is great news if you have a good camera, but not so good if your technology needs updating
