Canon SELPHY ES2 printer

Canon has announced a new SELPHY photo printer, the ES2. Central to the design is a simple interface, which is mainly viewed through a three-inch LCD, and adjusted with a combination of buttons and a scrollwheel. Reducing complexity further is support for Canon's "Easy-Photo Pack" cartridges, which lets users load ink and paper at the same time. Print sizes can range from a 2x3-inch credit-card format to a borderless 5x7; the latter prints in approximately 52 seconds. Standard resolution is 300dpi.

Casual users of the printer now have access to 16 different templates and an increased variety of clip-art, such as stars, hearts and dolphins. Special effects let users soften edges or focus, or add star-shaped flares to photo highlights. The ES2 is expected to ship in October, and should cost $200. Apple systems require Mac OS X 10.3, while Windows machines must be running Windows 2000, XP or later.
