    The Canon Selphy ES1 photo printer apparantly requires a BU-20 bluetooth dongle (~£50). Is it possible to use a much cheaper, generic bluetooth dongle?

    Has anyone successfully tried this?

    Thanks.

    Never tried it, but I believe when using bluetooth, its like using IR in that you get no control over the printing, the file just prints.

    Side note great printer, I got one for Xmas, £99 on price match with 100 pack of paper.

    Results are really really good.

    The HP BT450 seems to do the same thing and can be found for £26 on Amazon.

    May be worth a try?
