Fab little printer.I'm a crafter and use my photos for scrapbooking. They are dry and ready for use instantly. It is also super easy and quick to load up with the combined paper and ink cartridge. It is also compact and takes up very little space.

Printers Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Your photos in your hand – in seconds.

Stylish and easy to use, the SELPHY ES30 puts the fun into printing lab quality photos. Optimise your pictures with on board retouching tools, add clip art and frames, or simply enjoy one-touch direct printing.

Integrated ink and media cassette

For simple, clean installation, the SELPHY ES30 uses Easy Photo Packs – handy integrated ink and media cassettes with up to 50 sheets. Available with different media types – including credit card sizes and postcards in both colour and black & white – packs can be easily swapped halfway through use if required.

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

Small enough to store on a bookshelf, the SELPHY ES30 features a smooth, elegant design that will blend seamlessly with virtually any home. A sturdy carry handle makes storage and carrying extra easy.

Easy Scroll Wheel and 3.0” colour LCD

A large 3.0” colour LCD provides all the necessary detail for image preview and accurate editing. This is paired with Canon’s Easy-Scroll wheel, for fast image browsing and selection of functions.

Easy direct printing

The SELPHY ES30 features multiple options for direct, computer-free printing. Compatible digital cameras and camcorders can be connected via PictBridge. Slots for most popular types of memory card – including MicroSD and MicroSDHC – are integrated into the printer.

Wireless printing

For wireless printing from mobile phones, an optional Bluetooth adaptor is available.

DIGIC II

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. For the best results possible, backgrounds are optimised separately. Users can also choose from a range of editing options including image trimming, red-eye correction, and colour enhancement or alteration 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.
