Bring them to life with the SELPHY CP1500. You can do so much more with physical photo prints, and SELPHY print life into your digital photos. By inheriting the imaging quality of the SELPHY series, the SELPHY CP1500 further enhances the vividness of portrait prints.

In addition to the use of dye sublimation technology, which enables smoother colour tones and richer gradations, the SELPHY CP1500 comes with an automatic correction function that adjusts the brightness, saturation, contrast and tones in images for a better, clearer finish. 

At the end of the printing process, a special overcoat finish is applied to protect the photo from water, dirt, colour fading, and even fingerprints. Whether the photo was a quick smartphone snapshot, or a photographic work shot on a camera, it will stay in pristine condition for up to 100 years when preserved in an album (1).

(1) Album storability is a predicted value calculated according to the indoor heat resistance test method and life evaluation criteria of the Digital Colour Photo Print Stability Evaluation (JEITA CP-3901) standard published by JEITA (Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association).

<Life evaluation criteria> Predicted values are based on tests assuming album storage in an environment with a temperature of 23°C and humidity of 50%. When the monochromatic/reflective optical density value (0.5, 1.0) decreases by 30% (set for each colour unit), and the discolouration density difference of Y, M, and C components (each component colour) in BK decreases by 15% etc. are determined as limit points.

(2) Compatible with devices running iOS 14 or later, iPadOS 14 or later, or Android 8 or later
