Summary: I bought this printer to specifically print out digital pictures. I too am having some brightness issues that others seem to have as well. If you are going to be tweaking all of your photos in photoshop, not a problem, otherwise you may have to experiment a little and set your camera to slightly over expose. the unit works really well doing what it's meant to do. Compared to the multifunction inkjets, this is no fuss no muss.

Summary: I have had this printer for about 8 months. It produces very high quality 4x6 prints, much better than any Inkjet. I love its compact size. I don't print photos every day, only a few times a year in large volume. I love the fact that I don't have to worry about dry ink cartridges. Never wasting the consumable than makes up for the higher cost per page. It also works great under Vista x64. After some trouble, I was even able to network it with a Netgear PS121v2.
Summary: We purchased this unit awhile ago for our Rotary Child I.D. Program where we provide a free child I.D. Kit to parents; asking for no names or any other info (No big brother here) so far the product is fantastic. The image quality is fine and although the unit is a little slow in operation the fingerprinting process is slower, so the prints are ready before the fingerprinting officer is finished his work.
Summary: This printer has worked flawlessly and produced some great prints. The on screen controls and the easy loading paper\film pack are simple enough for a novice to use. No need to connect to a computer. Just insert the memory card from your camera, browse through your photos and then hit print. No ink, no mess, just great pics. The price per print is 27 cents but if we need a lot of prints we use Walmart or the photo printers at the local stores.
Summary: I've had this printer for almost a month and have printed over 100 photo's with it. I cannot say enough good things about it. It prints at average speed and the photo's can be touched, scrapbooked or framed immediately after printing without fear of ruining the photo. The directions on some of the bubble-jet photo papers warn not to frame for at least 7 days!
Summary: Any one who has an interest in printed digital photos needs this machine. NO INK AND NO INK CART> NEED I SAY MORE Simple to use outstanding quality- I am a pro and have a comm printing company so bel. me when I say it is a great little machine and portable!
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Fast Print Time, Reliable
Summary: I bought this as a gift for Mother's Day. The ES2 is simple enough for my mother to use. There is no hooking up cables or learning new software. Just load the camera's memory card into the correct slot, select the photos and quantities you want, and press the PRINT button. It would really be perfect for travelers who want to make photos/postcards from pics they take along the way. (Every photo is also a postcard.) Prints are a bit slow at ~1min/photo.
Summary: The product works great! The pictures are crisp and they take about a minute to print. I like the different features such as adding frames, creating a calendar, adding speech bubbles, corrects red-eye, and printing a picture diary. These features are especially useful for scrapbooking. I also liked the fact that the ink and paper are in one cartridge. It's nice that you can print from your camera, cell phone, or computer.
