2.0 out of 5 stars Had GREAT potential but lacked durability, 18 Jan. 2016
Here it goes
a) It has that rugged roughed up look that makes it look like it can go anywhere.
b) It is primarily a trolley but has hideaway straps for converting into a backpack (this was one of the main reasons i bought it and we've used the backpack straps on one occasion when we had to walk through a beach where the wheels would be practically useless)
c) collapsible (it's great that the bulk of the body folds down to hide under a bed but the main bottom of the bag won't fold down so we had that sticking out)
d) big wheels (however, on the 3rd trip we took this to, the wheels totally cracked and literally crumbled away - it's about 2 years old and only been on 3 trips - and for those trips, the bag was rarely used further than house-car-airport-transfer-hotel-transfer-airport-home route. so no extra long use on the wheels.
e) it can comfortably fit about 15 kilos but when creatively packed can fit up to 20 kilos of stuff. although it is non expandable, which is a shame.
f) the handle gave way on the 2nd trip, it got stuck while extended. I had to jimmy rig the to get the handle down. it was working again. however on the 2nd trip, the handle gave way again and this time i had it professionally jimmy rigged. on the 3rd trip, it gave way again - this one i can't blame on the bag entirely but i can say that maybe the design of the bag, is flawed when it comes to excessive handling.
g) the pocket at the bottom sort of made no sense to open up towards the bottom.
h) large wide and sturdy grab handles on the top, side and front side of the bag
i) buckles on the side makes it feel that even if the zipper gives way, that the bag will still be mostly secure
j) theres even a water bottle pocket on the side
k) no internal frame for carrying it as it would be primarily a trolley

generally speaking, i WAS pretty happy with it. the red/gray version looked really good to match the rest of my equipment but the durability of it just didnt cut it for me. the handle thing wouldve been ok except that im just tall enough that i can't drag the bag by the top handle without the bag scooting straight up. i have to crouch a bit so i can glide the bag on the wheels without raising the perpetually broken handles. im about 5'8"

4.0 out of 5 stars First Photo Printer Bought, 5 Sept. 2012
We bought this from the Canon store (sorry amazon) on a whim. Went home with it and seemed pretty easy to navigate. We borrowed a friend's older model selphy for a party to act as a photobooth (connected to an older powershot) and the comparision between the older by 3 years model is not that big of a difference.

The print quality is amazing. buying the photo paper and ink in one go is convenient. the price, ehhh, not too happy with it. wish it were about $50 cheaper just because the initial investment you have to make is quite high. the prints itself goes out to 2x as expensive compared to tradtionally printed out with the pros - and that's not counting the price of the printer in the per piece print.

still, it's very convenient - the little screen and editing functions are pretty spot on. i love the cropping tool on the screen - the only real thing i ever truly loved.

convenient and does what it's supposed to. wish it were cheaper. :)
