Product Information

product description

Create, keep and share every memory.

Compact, creative and fun, the SELPHY ES3 delivers lab-quality photos direct from your memory card or digital camera. Built-in 1GB memory lets you store images for printing whenever the mood takes you.

Easy Photo Pack integrates ink and media

For simple, clean installation, the SELPHY ES3 uses Easy Photo Packs – handy integrated ink and media cassettes in capacities of up to 50 sheets. Available with several different media types – including credit card sizes and postcards in both colour and black & white – packs can be easily swapped halfway through use.

Gold & Silver Easy Photo Packs

Add sparkle to greetings cards and invitations by combining selected Creative Print functions with a Gold or Silver Easy Photo Pack – available in packs including ink and 20 postcard-sized papers.

Compact, vertical design with handle

The stylish, space-saving design of the SELPHY ES3 is small enough to store on a bookshelf and operate on a desktop. A sturdy carry handle makes it extra easy to carry and store.

Easy Scroll Wheel and 3.5” colour LCD

A large 3.5” colour LCD provides outstanding image preview and facilitates image editing. This is paired with Canon’s Easy-Scroll wheel, for rapid image browsing and selection of functions.

Built-in memory

The SELPHY ES3 offers 1GB built-in memory allowing users to store and print their favourite images wherever they choose. Images can be easily transferred to the printer in seconds.

Direct & wireless printing

Direct printing options include PictBridge, for connection to digital cameras and camcorders; slots for most popular types of memory cards; and onboard IrDA IR for printing from mobile phones. An optional Bluetooth adaptor is also available.


Canon’s own DIGIC II processor ensures outstanding imaging and fast operation.

Image optimisation & editing

Automatic Image Optimisation detects faces in an image and corrects their brightness. Backgrounds are optimised separately, producing the very best results possible. Users can also trim images, correct red-eye and alter or enhance colours with My Colors.

Creative Print button

A dedicated Creative Print button offers numerous ways to customise photos – from speech bubbles and filter effects to clip art and picture frames. Creative Print also lets users incorporate their favourite shots into projects like calendars and fun multi-layouts.

100-year prints
Canon printing technology produces lab-quality prints that remain bright, rich and vivid for up to 100 years. A durable high-gloss coating protects every print from splashes and sticky fingers
