Selphy printers
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:23:10 PM »
Does someone here use a Selphy printer? What do you think about it? I find the quality really good although cost is rather high. Personally I'm surprised they don't have bigger formats, nor use more colors. What's the reason? Does anybody know?

I have 510. I like the quality. I'm surprised they don't produce it for bigger formats, nor use more colours. It's seems to be a niche product in my opinion with a great wasted potential in it.
