Memory Cards1/PictBridge2& Optional Bluetooth3 — don't feel like using a computer? No problem. Just insert a compatible memory card into the built-in card slot, select images on the LCD display, and print! Thanks to a PictBridge connection, you can also print photos directly from your compatible digital camera, DV camcorder or camera phone. Plus, you can print from the optional BU-30 wireless Bluetooth unit.
Wish that it could do more.

Changed my previous bad review to good.
Before I rated the driver on this as bad. Because of the way Windows uninstalls programs, I could not remove the driver to start with a fresh install. The uninstaller could not fix this. What I did was unplug printer from the USB port and went into the CONTROL PANEL/DEVICES AND PRINTERS and click on any printer icon then the PRINT SERVER PROPERTIES tab to select the Selphy CP780 and deleted it. Rebooted Windows. Run the Selphy driver install. It will ask you to plug the printer into a USB port to complete the process. That's it. Works fine now. The Uninstall program needs to work better. It was useless.

After one year, the paper handling mechanism of this printer becomes unreliable. The newer es-40 model provides much better alternative as the paper and the film are integrated in one package.

A Great Machine But I would like for you to make Ink to be sold seperately as I have LOTS of paper. Also where can I buy a cable to connect it to my computer? There seems to be no acessaries sold seperately. WHY NOT?? I NEED A CABLE. DM
