  1. Can I hook up my android through otg directly to a selphy printer? If so, what is the method? The reason I ask is because it takes quite a while to get the image to the printer over wireless and it is too slow for getting prints to people.

    Thanks in advance

    • The Selphy is a great printer for the price, but it has the drawback of being slow. The selphy also doesn’t support raw printing of jpeg files over USB – it needs a custom driver which isn’t built into the app. It might be a bit quicker if you shared it from a mac or PC which has more processing power that the little embedded CPU on the printer.

  2. Thanks for the prompt reply!. I have several Canon Selphy printers, 700/800/900 series, but not the 910 yet. Can the Selphy 910 be setup to print via USB or WiFi, or only WiFi?

    Once I get setup, I plan on bringing my setup to a local camera club meeting and *test* out a range of Canon and Nikon dSLRs (300d/350d/30d/40d/60d/7d/7dII d7000/d5200/d3100/d3000/d80/d40 just off the top of my head)

  3. I downloaded the free version onto my Samsung S4 PHONE, plugged in a USB OTG adapter, connected and turned on my Canon 7d, launched the APP and BAM… live viewing on my phone display.
    Tapped the “START” button, 4, 3, 2, 1 CLICK goes the camera, and the captured image displayed. (and is in a folder on the phone as well as the camera’s mem card).
    Next step, testing with a printer. USB wired or wireless, and what printer model… that is the question.

    • The USB printing support is pretty limited (only printers that work without drivers are supported). If you don’t have a printer already, I’d suggest looking at the Canon Selphy CP910
