Capture Family Moments with Canon

Savvy traveling families pack a Canon Selphy CP1200 Wireless Compact Photo Printer to make lasting memories—and friends.

Published on May 31, 2017

Making memories on a family vacation has never been more fun than with a Canon Selphy CP1200 wireless printer. Singapore-based international travel photographer Lester Ledesma and his family recently toted one with them to Istanbul, and came back with a scrapbook full of kaleidoscopic keepsakes.

But you don’t have to be a pro to print with this lightweight wonder, whether using the Wi-fi connectivity or the SD card slot. “It’s very, very simple,” Ledesma says. “Just pop in the memory card and the menus are easy to navigate.” The Selphy’s convenient portability, with its external battery pack, makes foreign places easy to navigate, too. “The Selphy is a great tool to interact with the locals. We gave away prints to people we met in Istanbul and it opened doors to some really nice experiences.”



Perhaps most importantly, his tech-savvy daughter has a new favorite gadget. “She’s fascinated by the printing process, and she loves looking at the prints,” he says. “She says they’re not on a smartphone screen, so they don’t disappear when she swipes them!”

In a Beyoglu district, handicrafts vendor Kadir thanked the family for a Selphy print of himself by buying them a snack of simit, a Turkish bread.
