I just opened mine and got it all set up. Already printing out Instagram pics from my phone. Loooove it.
But I read on a board post before that every time you turn it on and off it loads the film essentially wasting a pic. Is that true? If so is it safe to just always leave it on?

I have not found this to be true. It uses every piece of paper that comes in the pack, no waste. I only turn my on when I use it.

I haven't had the issue either.

I am waiting for the android app to be updated so I can print with my 900. For now I am still using my 800 and loving it.

I've never had that happen that I know of. I only turn mine on when I'm using it.

Can you connect your iphone to it? I always take the pics off my phone, onto my PC, then on to a flash drive to print.

You can with the 900 model; not with the 800 model.

I have my the Cloud set up on my laptop (a PC) so pictures I take on my iPhone are automatically available on my PC via the cloud.

I was just reading reviews of the Selphy on Amazon -- thinking of getting it for a Christmas gift -- and I saw this comment, which reminded me of the discussion on this thread.

Anyone noticed this problem?


I have had my Selphy for 2 years now and overall it is a handy printer. However, what people need to know is that every time you turn the unit off and turn it back on, it loads the ink for one picture. That is, you lose that ink and your ink to paper ratio gets off over time. You eventually start running out of ink before you run out of paper. I called Cannon to find out what was happening-that I was accumulating tons of paper but running out of ink. They informed me that the machine does this and I should leave the unit on (print as many photos as possible in one sitting) if I am to not waste ink. Right now I have tons of paper that will probubly never get used because cannon will not sell ink apart from paper. Very Wasteful! FYI

Selphy 900 is on sale at Best Buy for $69.00. I don't know if this is a good price or not but thought I would pass the information on.

I saw that review before I bought my 800 last year. I ignored it and bought it anyway..love it...and I have not had that issue. So maybe that person has a defective one or a different model...not sure.
