Canon extend Selphy range - The latest models in Canon’s award-winning range of compact photo printers allow everyone to make great photo prints – at home or on the move.
Featuring a stylish vertical design that’s small enough to store on a bookshelf, the Selphy ES2 and ES20 – finished in cool cappuccino and elegant white – blend effortlessly into any home. Users can sit back and watch their photos emerge in four action-filled, colourful steps; upon completion, they’re instantly ready for handling and protected from fingerprints, dust, scratches and UV rays by a special coating. An integrated carry handle makes both models easy to take anywhere, whether it’s to friends’ houses or on holiday – and used with an optional battery pack, the Selphy ES2 offers total portable printing power.
For maximum convenience, both printers use Canon’s Easy Photo Packs – special cassettes which combine both ink and paper in one handy integrated package. Available in a choice of three different printing sizes, they’re effortless to install and ready to use in seconds – packs can even be swapped mid-way through use. Plus, when it’s time to buy replacements, each pack is colour-coded for easy identification in the store.
Users don’t even need a computer to start printing. Both models allow direct printing from compatible digital cameras, most popular memory card formats See specifications for compatible card types. and even mobile phones. Compatible models only, via integrated IrDA (Selphy ES2 only) or optional Bluetooth adaptor (both models). With an improved user interface and large colour LCD screens it’s easy to check images before they’re printed; if things need adjusting, users can trim images, adjust colours and correct common flaws like red-eye at the touch of a button. To provide ultra-easy access to these and other functions, the Selphy ES2 also features Canon’s Easy-Scroll Wheel control system.
For extra fun, the Selphy ES2 and ES20 both include a special Creative Print button. This lets users turn their pictures into creative projects like albums and calendars – or brighten things up with clip art, frames and speech bubbles. The Selphy ES2 also offers a range of classic filter effects including soft focus, faded edges and star lights.
