What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
I received the Selphy ES40 as a birthday gift after several hints. It took a bit of doing to gather everything together to make it work as there was no paper included with the printer. The clerk at Best Buy sold the gift giver the wrong type of photo paper and this was discovered only after the box of paper was opened and BB would not take it back. TAKE NOTE ANYONE WHO IS INTERESTED IN PURCHASING THIS PRINTER: the Canon Easy Photo Pack (E-P100/Ink & Paper)that is needed to use in this printer is available only ON LINE through Amazon or directly from Canon. Plan ahead before you purchase it to make sure you can get the correct photo pack and you will then get carried away once you start printing your pics. One drawback is that if you plan to print from an xD-picture card, you will need an adapter for this (instructions in the guide state this is "commercially available"), but I have NOT been able to find this adapter anywhere on line or at any photo store I've contacted or visited. This has been my biggest disappointment with this printer as one of my cameras uses this type picture card and I'm not able to print those pictures without the adapter. It seems to me that Canon should include this adapter with the printer.
I just bought this printer last night and I LOVE it. I printed all 50 pictures in the photo pack with absolutely no problem. No, it doesn't come with the USB cord but I just used the USB cord from my old printer and it was a perfect match. I compared the quality with pictures I had printed from Target and they would equal if not better. I wish it told you how many prints you have left before the ink/paper is gone and maybe it does but I haven't found the option yet. The ink is a little expensive but I think it's so worth it for the convenience. I always have problems at the photolab, from the kiosks being down, to the kiosks not being able to read my memory card or disks, and of course, rude customer service. I took some awesome pictures of my tree and ornaments last year and plan to send them out next Christmas as cards thanks to the postcard on the back of the prints. Anyway, Amazon is selling this for over $200 and I bought it locally at Best Buy for $85.99 and I saw it advertised at Bestbuy.com for only $99. It's only $150 on Canon's site. Hope no one pays over twice the price!
I got this little printer in hopes of having something more convenient than having to run to the store. I've got three kids and two of them are under the age of two so a quick run to the store to print off pictures isn't ever easy. I turned it on and got it set up and that took about 2 minutes. After that I put in the ink and paper cartridge and that took about 15 seconds. I plugged in my camera and started printing. So in the matter of about 3 minutes after I took it out of the box I had a gorgeous picture. I've had so much fun with this little printer and every single picture has come out absolutely perfect.
I purchased this printer for my girlfriend. She's not a very electronics saavy person and will usually not even bother to attempt learning about new gadgets. She basically plugged this printer in and was printing in less than 2 minutes. Picture quality was good. Printer speed was average/good so no complaints. The paper/ink combo kits are fantastic. You always have the exact amount of ink for the amount of paper in each package so you never run out of one before the other. Very compact and light weight. LCD screen is a great feature. Overall this is a great printer and very worth your time, epecially for such a great price! MUST HAVE!
(Update 4/25/13). I have now owned this printer for over 3 years and it's still a fantastic product. The reason I'm updating this review is because of the drastic price increase. I purchased this product in 2010 for $50. It is now listed for $350. It's probably worth the money if you have it to waste, but because of the crazy price increase, I would look for something else. Now, If you do decide to buy this product in spite of the price, you won't be disappointed in terms of quality.

Having had more than my share of compact ink jet photo printers, I was a little skeptical of the all-in-one cartridge system used by the Selphy ES40. I was also, however, tired of prints never coming out right, paper that was reluctant to feed, near interminable waits, etc.
This printer is the modern day equivalent of a Polaroid camera. You just insert the cartridge (for 50 photos), easily select the photo via the dial (which works very much like Canon cameras (or like an iPod, you can spin it or click each of the four directions)), then press the print button. Out comes the picture with no fuss. It won't smudge and watching each color layer appear in succession is interesting, too.
Take note: the printer comes with NO paper/ink. You must order it separately. And while the lab will certainly be cheaper, it'll also take a lot longer and a trip to the store or waiting for the delivery.
We got this printer to replace what Polaroids used to do... quickly print a picture with no fuss. It does that wonderfully.

I had in the past a Photo size Epson printer but the ink dried out and it stopped working. This will not happen with this dye sublimation printer.
The picture quality is great. Image does not smear and is water proof as soon as it comes out of the printer. This Selphy model contains the power supply as well as the paper so it is always ready to print with minimal hassle.
I am printing from my Windows computer and Picasa and operation is straight forward (make sure to install the printer driver though).
Make sure to get the correct Slephy cartridges for this printer (there are at least two kinds, one is compatible and one is not). I am using E-P100 from Amazon (less than 30c per pic).
Note that when it prints, the paper comes out and then turns by 90deg. This is normal, not a paper jam. Actually it is fun to watch. The paper then goes in and out the printer few times and you see how the images is built using layers of color.
Excelent product overall. Highly recommended.
