Canon Selphy ES1

 

Instead of the usual box-like design, the Canon Selphy ES1 compact dye sublimation photo printer is a silver tower that stands almost 8 inches high, with the controls, including a 2.5-inch LCD screen, on the top. At $249, the ES1 is a little more...

Canon Selphy ES1

 

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, there's very little not to like here.

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.

REVIEW — CANON SELPHY ES1 printer ]

 

This is a portable dye sublimation printer that produces 10x15cm prints. The printer footprint is 200x105mm – a tiny desk area made possible by its curious paper handling mechanism. The paper and dye come together in a pack that inserts into the side...

The consistency of output is reassuring. The paper is printed with a postcard form on the reverse ; Dislike: We find the stand-alone navigation so perplexing that we can only do it with the manual in hand. The tiny LCD screen is not much use for image...

We find the stand-alone navigation so perplexing that we can only do it with the manual in hand. The tiny LCD screen is not much use for image editing ; Parting shot: This printer is an attractive complement to a compact camera. For anyone who is...

This printer is an attractive complement to a compact camera. For anyone who is satisfied with standard postcard size prints it is well worth a look. We found that the setup stalled at the point where it is supposed to detect the printer and would not...

This is an intriguing little printer which can be used completely standalone - though you'd have to add the optional Lithium Ion battery pack - to produce very high quality photos from most recent digital cameras. Both purchase price and running costs...
