As a group, small-format dedicated photo printers are built around one of two technologies—thermal dye or ink jet. There used to be significant differences between the two on everything from output quality to cost per photo. Today, they've converged to...

Print pack holds both dye roll and paper. Highly water-resistant. Reasonably low cost per page

Bigger than most small-format thermal dye printers. Diagonal lines (like spokes of a wheel) print with jagged edges ; Watch the Canon Selphy ES2 Video Review

The Canon Selphy ES2 dedicated photo printer offers an attractive combination of features, but not enough to make it a slam-dunk choice.

The Canon Selphy ES2 is well-performing printer that beat out a good number of printers in its class.

The Canon ES2 currently sells for $199.99. In short, it is a well-performing printer that beat out a good number of printers in its class. It's not perfect in all aspects, though; other printers have advantages in screen size, accessories and ink and...

PORTABLE PHOTO PRINTER DELIVERS QUALITY

Runs on optional battery pack

Poor-quality sepia/black-and-white from color cartridge

The SELPHY ES2 uses convenient cassettes that house paper and ink with enough supplies for 50 photos. Instead of using standard ink cartridges, the ES2 uses dye transfer: Color dyes are embedded in a ribbon and transferred to the paper using heat. This...

Extremely portable, decent print quality

Canon's Selphy ES2 is the most expensive dye-sub printer here. Paper and ink are cleverly contained in a single cartridge, with both tri-colour and black and white versions available.

Canon Selphy ES2 compact photo printer

 

The digital revolution has allowed Canon to involve itself not only in image capture, but output too. The company encourages home printing, like Kodak, by bundling cameras and printers together.

The Canon Selphy’s space-saving design is a boon, but its print speed and quality of output can’t match the best of the bunch.

Although it offers no technical upgrades from its predecessor, an enhanced user interface and larger LCD display improve on the impressive ES1, making the Canon Selphy ES2 a pleasing choice for a dye-sub photo printer.

Excellent picture quality ; Improved user interface ; Complete portability with carry handle and optional battery pack

Heavy for its size ; Must use Canon's combined ink and paper cartridges ; No technical improvements over the previous model

*The launch price of the Canon Selphy ES1 was AU$349 but this has since been dropped, we assume to bring it in line with the new model.
