Canon Selphy ES3

 

Like the Selphy ES2 it replaces, the Canon Selphy ES3 uses a single cartridge to let you load both dye roll and paper in one step.

Internal memory can store 999 photos. Print pack holds both dye roll and paper. Photos are highly water resistant.

Relatively big and heavy for a small-format printer. Diagonal lines (as with spokes in a wheel) can print with jagged edges.

Canon Selphy ES3 Snapshot Printer

 

The Selphy ES3's fun factor is negated by its problems with speed, print quality, and consumables costs.

Lots of fun printing options ; large LCD ; Very good documentation

Expensive ; slow ; vulnerable paper path ; Yellowish photos ; wasteful consumables

Don't let the Canon Selphy ES3's cuteness blind you to its mediocre print quality and wasteful consumables. Families may appreciate its wealth of printing options, but there's not much else to like here

Canon SELPHY ES3 photo printer

 

Canon's diminutive SELPHY ES3 printer produces excellent photos. We wish it was possible to purchase a battery pack for it, but it is still a great wa...

Fantastic print quality, small, comprehensive media support, easy to use

Expensive consumables, no battery option, minor rainbow effect in some photos

Costly consumables aside, Canon's SELPHY ES3 photo printer is a fantastic buy that provides excellent print quality in a small package.

Canon Selphy ES3 review

 

Canon's latest dye-sub printer has more character than a Disney villain. But is it portable photo perfection?

Solidly built and impressive in action, the photo quality isn't up to scratch

Canon Selphy ES3

 

For enthusiasts and those wanting to produce high-quality prints at home using a dedicated photo printer, the Selphy ES3 is a great purchase, but the cost of consumables and cost per print is fairly steep.

Compact design ; Clip art, borders and novelty printing options

Runs off mains power only ; Limited size options for photo prints

The cost per print works out to be 55 cents for a colour print (based on an average retail price of AU$27.95 for a pack of 50 prints at the time of writing) and 91 cents per sheet for a black and white print. Other print sizes, such as credit card...

Canon Selphy ES3 review

 

Canon's Selphy ES3 snapshot printer is as cute as the similarly shaped (and priced) HP Photosmart A826. Unfortunately, not everything about the Canon Selphy ES3 photo printer is so disarming and friendly.

Don't let the Canon Selphy ES3's cuteness blind you to its mediocre print quality and wasteful consumables. Families may appreciate its wealth of printing options, but there's not much else to like here.

Review of the Canon Selphy ES3 printer

Large LCD, easy to use

Some colour issues, fixed LCD

Overall, the unit is fine for the odd snapshot, but perhaps less so for the more discerning user.

Canon Selphy ES3 Photo Printer Test

 

The Canon Selphy ES3 features a card reader as well as Bluetooth and IR connections for easy 'direct printing'. Is it all style and no substance?
