Excerpt: Canon Selphy ES2 is a compact printer that allows users to create and handle photos right where they are shot. In fact, a computer is no longer needed. The user can just print directly from the memory cards, Bluetooth devices, and cameras. Other features include: enhanced images, high-resolution viewing, and easy operation.
Summary: A portable dye-sublimation snapshot printer that is simple enough for everyone in the family to operate.It's obvious from the packaging that Canon is targeting families with its latest Selphy printer, the ES2. Essentially the same size and weight as last year's ES1 model, the ES2 has the same upright design and small footprint and uses the same dye-sublimation printing technology.
Summary: 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.
Pros: Excellent picture quality, Improved user interface, Complete portability with carry handle and optional battery pack
Cons: Heavy for its size, Must use Canon's combined ink and paper cartridges, No technical improvements over the previous model
Excerpt: 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.
