Wow, that does look nice! So you don't have a problem with not having true black ink making the dark areas too gray like a reviewer complained about?

CaribbeanGirl, I'm glad I pushed the buy button. Thank you for encouraging me! I love it.

tinkgumby, I really like the colors. I don't notice anything odd. I guess I didn't see the post you are talking about.

Thanks for posting that picture luvmyson! Looks like the Selphy prints better than my gigantic Canon AIO printer.

I am waiting for the price to go back down now.

ETA: I just checked and it's now at $99 on Amazon!!!! Hmph!!!

So.. What is the 'go to' app for making collages to print? I would like one that will print two square Instagram pics on a sheet. No weird drop shadow borders or anything though.

I can't say enough how happy I am that I got it. And it sounds like it was just in the nick of time. The prices appear to be going up. Ok, so what color did everyone get? I got a white one.

I looked at Amazon and the black one is $85.66, while the white one is $99. I'm assuming they are the same printer, just a different color.

Well, I'm going to take the plunge too. I found one locally for $79.99 so I'm going to pick it up. My husband said, "Just do it already!" I've been debating getting a printer vs. ordering prints for a few weeks. I went with the Selphy because of the ability to print from my iphone since that's where all my PL pics are taken. It will be so nice to just print the pics, put them in, journal and move to the next week. I've read too many posts from people saying it was necessary for them to be successful at PL and I know I would do much better with this ability too.

After reading all the posts I started looking for a Selphy. By the time I decided to get it they were $86 on amazon. I am visiting family in Dallas and found a local store that had them for $79.99. I went to the store and bought it. Now I can't wait to get home and play with it.

I bought the wireless one too after reading the reviews here, I was a little bit leery buying it with the reviews on Amazon. I love my 800 but wireless will be awesome. The not being tethered to a printer will be awesome for PL.

Well, i left Canon printers entirely, earlier last year, and have switched to Epson. Canon stopped supporting Mac with my Selphy, and i was really pissed, so i said, screw it! Anyway, i was ready to replace my desktop printer and got the Epson Artisan 837, and WOWOWOWOWOW! The prints are phenomenal, and it's wireless, so i just use my iPhone and print from wherever i am! The tray allows you to keep photo paper, and printer paper loaded at all times, so it's super convenient.
I also bought an Epson Show, which is like the Charm, but it has a viewing screen on the front. Also prints amazing photos!
Enjoy your Selphys...they do make nice prints as well!

slyn11, I'm thinking of asking a lady that makes covers for die cut machines to make a cover for my selphy to match the ones I already bought from her. She makes beautiful covers.

scrapnmomof4. I'm excited for you. I waited until I was home alone so I could savor the moment. Enjoy playing!

CaribbeanGirl, I love the idea of Club Selphy.

I had to check it out, after reading this thread.

Right now, both black and white are $80.56 on Amazon. That's crazy how much the price has changed over these few days!



I read a review that says that there is a very very faint line ~1/8" from the left side due to the rollers.

I also found a possible "fix", so if any of you notice this line...

that setting on the printer device itself to "bordered" and then using the "borderless" setting on the computer/phone to print causes the line to go away.



Hope that helps.

Mine came last night, and now today I want to play.

I hate that I am so computer illiterate. I want to set it up to print wirelessly off my iPhone. Do I want Ad Hoc Mode or Infrastructure mode?

I've been trying to figure this out for an hour and now I need to start making the rounds picking up kids from school(s).

I have on of the earlier Canon Selphys and it was the best purchase ever. Though it is more expensive to print the pictures than going to a print shop, but way more convenient. The quality is really good and you have a few options to edit your photos (even more with the new Canon).

It's great for me because I live in a small town and there aren't any places to print photos closer than a 50 mile round trip. Waiting for pictures to be shipped is a pain if I need them.

I haven't turned mine off in 2 days. I shall in a bit but love the convenience of wireless and have been printing on a whim. Please say this is fine. I swear I have bad luck with electronics. Or anything. We are those people that phone/satellite company have to revisit as install never goes right the first time. Or repairs.
