The Canon Selphy ES40 Compact Photo Printer is a dye-sublimation printer which uses heat to transfer ink to paper and reproduces up to 16.8 million colors. It will output a postcard-sized photo in under a minute. Users will never have ink without paper and vice versa because they come in one package...changing media is as easy as replacing a single cartridge.

The ES40 is equipped to print with or without a computer. It is compatible with 20 different memory card types, has a USB port and PictBridge connection for printing directly from a digital camera or DV camcorder. The ES40 can also print wirelessly from Bluetooth mobile devices with the optional BU-30 Bluetooth Adapter.

The Selphy ES40 is simple to operate. The front panel has a high-resolution 3.5" LCD display to view, select and edit pictures plus an Easy Scroll Wheel for selecting various printer features. A Creative Print button allows users to customize photos with elements such as frames, speech bubbles, calendars, and other enhancements.

The ES40 has a voice guidance feature which when engaged will alert users to various printer functions such as, "Select a color", or "Replace the cartridge". It is lightweight (under 5 pounds) and compact (approx 9 x 9") and has a built in carry handle. For added convenience it also has a built-in power adapter.
