Canon today launched two new additions to its Selphy range of dye-sublimation printers, offering up to 6x4" prints with the minimum of hassle. The Canon Selphy E2 replaces the previous ES1 and sports an articulated 3.0" LCD, wireless printing via IrDA (Bluetooth with an optional adaptor) and may be powered from an optional battery pack. The Selphy E20 meanwhile features a fixed 2.5" screen and does without wireless connectivity and battery power.
Convenient, quality photo prints for all: the Compact Photo Printer SELPHY ES2 and ES20
Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 26th September, 2007: Canon today extends its ES line-up of SELPHY Compact Photo Printers with the launch of two affordable new models: the SELPHY ES2, which replaces the TIPA award-winning SELPHY ES1, and sister model the SELPHY ES20. Sporting stylish, space-saving vertical designs, both models offer improved ease of use for the ultimate in stress-free printing. Canon’s Easy System, which uses handy integrated ink and media cassettes, is complemented by one-touch operation and a generous 50-sheet capacity. A DIGIC II processor ensures fast, photo lab quality printing, while an extensive range of creative printing options can be explored via a large colour LCD viewer of either 3.0” (SELPHY ES2) or 2.5” (SELPHY ES20). For added ease of use, the SELPHY ES2 incorporates Canon’s intuitive Easy-Scroll Wheel, offering complete control of all key functions.
“Digital cameras are more popular than ever, but many users have yet to invest in a dedicated photo printer,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging Europe. “With the SELPHY ES2 and ES20, we are able to offer two convenient, high-quality products that will allow digital photographers to share and store their photos for years to come.”
Features at a glance:
Unique integrated ink and media cassette – the Easy Photo Pack – colour coded for easy identification
Stylish vertical design with small footprint and carry handle
3.0” tilt-up colour LCD viewer (fixed 2.5” on SELPHY ES20)
Easy Scroll Wheel (SELPHY ES2 only)
DIGIC II processing
Direct printing from most popular memory card formats1
Dedicated Creative Print button
Image Adjustments including Image Optimize, Image Trim, My Colors, and improved Red-Eye Correction
Wireless printing via IrDA (SELPHY ES2 only) and optional Bluetooth
Optional battery pack (SELPHY ES2 only)
Printing Made Easy
For convenient, stress-free printing, the SELPHY ES2 and ES20 use Canon’s Easy Photo Packs – special integrated ink and media cassettes that offer near-instant loading and sufficient ink and paper for 50 prints.2 Users can choose from three different printing sizes, with selected formats offering both colour and a dedicated Black and White version: all packs are colour-coded for easy identification, and include a slip to present at stores when replacements are required. Cartridges can be swapped quickly and easily mid-way through use, and because both ink and paper are stored inside the printer, the risk of dust affecting prints is minimised.
Ease of use is enhanced by several additional features. The SELPHY ES2 improves on its predecessor with a large 3.0” tilting colour LCD viewer, while the SELPHY ES20 features a 2.5” fixed colour LCD. Both allow for optimum image preview and easier editing. Control buttons have been simplified, with the SELPHY ES2 also featuring Canon’s intuitive Easy-Scroll Wheel for rapid image viewing and selection of functions. Both printers also incorporate carrying handles for easy portability – and for the ultimate print-anywhere experience, the SELPHY ES2 features an optional battery pack.
Resembling the stylish vertical design of the SELPHY ES1, both the SELPHY ES2 and ES20 achieve a compact design by outputting prints to the top of the printer – eliminating the need for a bulky paper cassette. Finished in attractive cappuccino (SELPHY ES2) and elegant white (SELPHY ES20) colour schemes, their smooth, modern lines complement virtually any home.
High Quality Prints
Both models use exceptional print head control technology to produce top-quality, high resolution glossy prints. Minimal graininess and professional-looking gradation are assured by a dye-sublimation printing process, which generates up to 16.8 million colours and ensures that prints are dry to the touch from the moment they emerge. Photos are finished with a durable, high-gloss protective layer, which guards against water, oil, gas and fingerprints; kept in a photo album, prints retain their quality for up to 100 years.3
As with the SELPHY ES1, Canon’s powerful DIGIC II image processor is integrated into both models. This provides advanced in-printer processing of all images, helping to ensure optimum picture quality. It is complemented by newly improved Auto Image Optimisation, which provides automatic correction of common flaws: face brightness can be optimised with no effect on background levels, and overexposure and underexposure are detected and adjusted for improved results.
DIGIC II also allows the SELPHY ES2 and ES20 to be highly responsive: improved processing algorithms offer new rapid start-up times, plus card reading and image viewing times up to ten times faster than on previous models.
Do more – without a computer
Both models incorporate a range of fast, easy direct printing options: PictBridge compatibility, slots for most popular memory card formats and, for wireless printing from devices such as mobile phones, an optional Bluetooth adaptor. The SELPHY ES2 also offers wireless connectivity via IrDA. These options are facilitated by the most user-friendly SELPHY interface yet - with an improved control panel layout, and intuitive printer menus in 24 different languages.
As well as applying useful edits such as improved Red-Eye Correction, image trimming and My Colors effects, users can transform their pictures using the dedicated Creative Print button. It provides a wide range of attractive album designs, calendars and impressive Multi-Layout prints – plus fun picture additions like speech bubbles, clip art and frames. The SELPHY ES2 also includes a selection of Filter Effects such as Faded Edges, Soft Focus and Star Lights.

Canon’s purpose-built DIGIC II (DIGital Imaging Core) image processor is the key to the outstanding print quality of the SELPHY ES2 and ES20. All images undergo Canon’s advanced image processing algorithms during the printing process, ensuring that the best possible results are achieved regardless of the camera used to capture the image. DIGIC II’s high-speed processing delivers smooth and responsive operation, with rapid start-up, memory card reading and LCD playback. When used with the optional battery pack (SELPHY ES2 only), DIGIC II operates efficiently for a minimum of 50 prints on a single charge.
