Oh, Peas, such enablers......I've been looking at the white one for weeks now. I don't think the price is going to come down any lower. Add me to the club! Going to order it now so I can have it tomorrow!

I'm so disappointed. I just received my Canon Selphy 900 and the app cannot detect the printer even though both devices show strong wireless and the phone had no problem with the password. Any ideas??

I believe mine came today but my friendly post office lady was already leaving when I walked in. She was nice enough to tell me that she had something for me. I am excited to pick it upj but I can't even open it until my homework is done anyway.

Mine arrived two days ago. It is as wonderful as everyone said. I got it mainly to print pics from my iPhone for PL. so far so good as I am now up to this week (I do weekly PL and usually put it together on Sundays.)

I am able to see the Selphy from my Mac and print with no problems. From my iphone and ipad I can only see the printer and print from the Canon iEPP app.

So for iPad and iPhone there is a selphy app? In the App store I assume, what is it called?

Just wanted to reply to this thread. I bought the CP900 and loved it. In the mean time I upgraded my ipad and iphone to iOS6 and the CP900 stopped printing wirelessly. I did a little research online and that seems to be a somewhat common problem. I now have to print using Ad Hoc mode. but at least it still works!

I got mine for Christmas and I love, love, love it! I was determined to do PL this year (I got everything last year and didn't do a single page...uggh!) Now that I can print from my iPhone, I'm actually completing PL pages...amazing!

I also have an iPhone 5 and have had no problems printing wirelessly - hope those with trouble get it figured out because it's an AWESOME little printer!

What I have been finding is that if you do not have a wi-fi router and are just trying to use your phone wifi and the canon wi-fi, it will not work with the iphone os 6. Which is a total bummer, because it says that you can print from smart phone to printer without the router.

I'm going to just try printing from my computer tonight and see how that goes. I'm so dissappointed in not being able to print from my phone that I might send it back

charmingirl you should still be able to make it work. Choose the Ad Hoc printing. That's what I had to do.

Can I ask a question, sorry if this has been answered.

I usually prefer to print matte and understand the Selphy is glossy only.

How glossy are we talking.....super glossy or just a bit? I'm on the fence....

Not super glossy to me. I think the glossy prints from Walgreens are shinier.

I think they are similar to snapfish glossy. Not overly glossy.

I picked up the Selphy 900 at best buy and they
Price matched Amazon , 77.46 for printer and 29.99 for ink/ paper
I had a rewards coupon and a gift card so my
Ending balance was 60. 96 for everything.

Now I hope I like the print quality. I had The Charm and
Sold it because I no longer had access to my laptop and wanted to
Print from my iPhone.
The Charm quality was beautiful.
Hope I don't regret it.

I had to come back and post! I'm so excited!!! I printed my first 5 pics on my selphy from.my.phone, using the app Canon suggested. It works seamlessly and I love the quality of the prints! They are glossy, but not high, high, gloss as the ones I just picked up at Walgreens! Awesome! I'm hooked!

Luv my son, It was a great deal I thought too and
My gift card ( from Christmas ) made it even sweeter.
I wasn't sure everyone knew that best buy price matched
And I have no patience to wait for shipping. Lol.
Thanks everyone for all the info you all shared.

Anyone use pita4print app with it?
Also, does anyone know how to print a 3 x 4 ?
I am thinking about
Using smaller albums and pocket pages.

Peanut lover - thanks for the advice. I have tried all ways and it just will not work. After all my trials I have packed it back up and am returning. Very sad. Everyone else loves it so much but it's just wont work for me.

I'm sorry you had so many problems charminggirl. Maybe your selphy is defective. Did you call or email canon?

Charmingirl,
are you sure your phone can
Be connected to wifi without a router?
I had to enter my wifi router password into the
Selphy when i set it up, so I assume
The only way to get wifi is through a router.

If you are trying to use your phone to print through your network
The Selphy does not have that capability.


Not sure if that info is helpful to you but hoping.

Just wanted to follow up to say the print quality
Is awesome and I am not in any way disappointed that I
Ditched my charm.
It is so easy to use an app like pita4print to
Place 2 pics on a 4 x 6 and print all from my iPhone!
No computer necessary!

Thanks to all of you enablers!
Love!!!!!!

I'm so happy to hear all of the great reviews. I was more than pleasantly surprised at how amazing the pictures turned out. I was skeptical because I used to have an Epson Charm and didn't care for the pictures. Thanks for all of the enabling, I mean encouraging, to buy this little gem. A special thanks to CaribbeanGirl.

I've had the Selphy in my cart for weeks now. It finally came down from $99 and I have the money. I'm reading all of these rave reviews. I really want to get it. I just can't hit that button!!

I just bought a Canon AIO printer a month ago so I'm feeling kind of guilty for wanting to get the Selphy. But I really don't like the quality of the AIO photos!!!

Argh!!! Someone please come over here and hit the buy it button for me.

Oh snap pea , get it now. Lol
I got an artisan 730 for christmas and didn't like the
4 X 6prints. That printer has a whole different use.

I guess I can relate to the person who has a garage full of tools.
Each has their own use and need them all !!

I have been thinking about getting the epson charm or a selphy for the past year but could not make up my mind.

I have an epson 2200, which is an older wide format printer. The picture quality is amazing so another printer is not a priority. The problem is that the 2200 uses 8 ink cartridges and they are expensive. A full set of ink would cost more than the selphy. In reading this thread I also realized that I want to print photos from my phone for PL. The charm does't have that ability at this time, so you've all helped me make up my mind.

The Best Buy near me has 1 left and they are holding it. I'm going to pick it up now along with a couple of the paper/ink packs.

My birthday is next week so this will be my gift to myself.
