Simon, Barnsley

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Print quality is really great, can't tell the difference between an actual photo and one that's printed by this machine. Also, it is very small so can be placed almost anywhere for easy reach. Very easy cartridge change.
Bad points:
A little expensive along side others, prints work out at about 28 pence a copy.

Printers Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Beautiful prints made beautifully simple

The vertical design of the SELPHY ES20 is a perfect fit for any interior. Slide in an Easy Photo Pack to explore creative options for personalised, lab-quality prints to delight family and friends.

Integrated Ink and Media cassette

Media and ink are conveniently integrated in one Easy Photo Pack for easy replacement and swapping between different media types, such as credit cards and postcards (colour and black & white). Print up to 50 postcard-size colour photos without changing the cartridge.

Compact, vertical design with handle

The compact vertical design allows the SELPHY ES20 to be stored and operated in tight spaces without taking up valuable desk space. The convenient carry handle makes printing truly portable.

2.5" colour LCD

The large LCD can be used to edit and review photos in detail before printing. Getting photos onto the screen is as easy as viewing them. Simply insert your camera’s memory card into one of the clearly labelled card slots.

Wireless printing

Print photos from compatible mobile phones using the optional Bluetooth adaptor.

Red-Eye Correction

A red-eye removal function is built right into the printer, so you can restore eyes to their natural look without the need for a computer.

Automatic image optimisation

Image Optimize automatically detects faces in an image and corrects their brightness. Backgrounds are optimised separately to get the very best print possible.

Creative Print button

The dedicated Creative Print button makes it easy to personalise photos. Add speech bubbles, clip art or picture frames and incorporate your favourite shots into calendars and Multi Layout prints.*

Image trim, My Colors

A full complement of in-printer creative features includes My Colors for altering and enhancing image colours. You can also trim images direct from the LCD screen before printing.*

100-year prints
Good for up to 100 years, the durable protective coating keeps your images bright, rich and vivid for generations and protects from splashes and sticky fingers.
