Not only has the printer benefitted from an upgrade but the Selphy smartphone app has also been updated. Supported on iOS, iPadOS and Android, it now allows you to access camera or smartphone images uploaded onto social media and the cloud which means memories once stored digitally can very quickly be made into tangible prints. An unlimited number of smartphones can be connected to the Canon Selphy printer at any one time which is great for weddings, birthday parties or events. To pair your devices, simply scan a QR code with the Selphy photo layout app and click connect.

Using fast dye sublimation technology, the Canon Selphy CP1500 is able to create vibrant postcard-sized prints in just 41 seconds. When the printing process is finished, a special coating is applied to the photo protecting it from water, dirt, fading and unwanted fingerprints. 

In the smartphone app, photos can be customized with text, borders, pattern overlays and stickers should you want to add an extra element to your image. Custom QR codes can also be added to prints which is a fun way to promote your business, website or even share an album. 

It’s expected the Canon Selphy CP1500 will be available to buy from the end of September in three different colors - black, white or pink. You can pre-order the Selphy CP1500 directly from Canon UK for £129.99, and now available for pre-order in the USA for $139.99 at BH Photo.

The CP1500 is being demonstrated to the public for the first time at The Photography Show 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.
