Canon Selphy ES40

 

The Canon Selphy ES40 can speak—to announce when a print job is finished, among other things.

Print pack holds both dye roll and paper for easy setup and better portability. Photos are water and scratch resistant.

Relatively big and heavy for a small-format printer. Diagonal lines (like spokes in a wheel) can print with jagged edges.

Lab quality photos on the go ; Simple to use, voice guidance ; A variety of creative features available

Cost per print can run high ; No optional battery pack

Other than that, the Canon Selphy ES40 is a quick way to get simple or creative prints at any gathering and a potentially great family printer

Canon Selphy ES40 Review and Ratings

 

This sturdy photo printer has superior image quality, easy setup, and built-in special effects and auto-correction, but be prepared to pay a high cost per print.

Simple setup and operation ; Long-life, wear-resistant photos ; Optional gold and silver ink for extra photo glitz

Expensive prints ; Large and heavy compared with similar photo printers
