A really good product, easy to use & produces great photos
1 January 2012
Summary: I brought this printer to print photos for family & friends who don't have access to view them on a computer. It is a great product and completes a photo in about 30 seconds, the quality of the print is as good as you get from a photo shop.
Summary: Got this because wife kept nagging that she never gets to see the Digital Photos I take and wants to print off ones she likes without needing to link to a computer. Chose this from reading positive online reviews and must say that it lived up to expectations. It comes with 10 shot photo cassette and so you will need to buy extras soon and they are not that readily available from all web sites and none available locally.
Summary: I have had this printer 2 weeks now. My camera has an XD picture card and the printer uses SD. I have found one adaptor but it is £49. Also to operate via blue tooth the cables are £49. What seemed good value for money is not turning out to be. As for picture quality don't know have not seen one yet!
Summary: I love Canon products, so I was expecting flawless prints form this. For pictures that are rich in colour, it is astoundingly good. I'm looking now at a print of some red flowers against green leaves with blue sky in the background. Vivid and realistic do not begin to describe it. However, in a couple of prints I have made that have black or very dark areas, there is deep red streaking across those areas.
Summary: As I agree with everyone else on the printing quality, there's not alot to say. But...using the printer didn't stop there for me! I wanted to link it to my Netgear WGPS606 print server. No joy...this is because Netgear don't support the printer. So...I then discovered the printer would support bluetooth. Wow, the adaptor from Canon (BU-20) was £50. FIFTY QUID! So what the hell, I stuck in an old Bluetooth adaptor from Sitecom (£19.99) into the Canon ES1. Guess what..
Summary: I have not owned this photo printer for very long but by god I'm glad I bought it . Having just used it on my holiday photos I have to say how impressed I am with the quality of the prints . The image , colour and depth to them is as good as any professional photos I have ever had .As it layers colour on colour and ends with a transparent coating to stop scratchs and marks it isn't the quickest printer in the world , but frankly who cares with prints this good .
Summary: I have been happy with the print quality of my previous inkjet printer, however the short time it takes before the prints start to fade is my opinion a bit useless, i'd heard you can buy special long lasting ink & paper for inkjet printers, but it's hard to come by & to be honest I couldn't be bothered to change the cartridges each time I wanted to print a photo, so I bought this ES1.
Summary: I bought this item after reading some reviews all saying that this was a great little printer. I can honestly say that this printer has been one of the few items i have bought that has totally supassed all my expectations, not only are the photos really great quality but it is so easy to use.
Summary: I bought this printer from the high street for £189 because I waited and waited for Amazon to get them in stock. Finally I caved, but it's a massive saving from Amazon so if you can wait for them to come in stock then buy it here. As for the printer itself, one word - AMAZING!!!!! I have been researching stand alone photo printers, wanting to get one that would give me quality photos, with well-priced refills. The Selphy ES1 fills this role very well.
