Rather than the squares, the angular lines of the previous model, the Selphy ES3 is full of curves, much more like a purse or DAB radio. The curved transport handle clearly shows that this printer is designed for transport, even if it is more transportable than totally mobile, as there is no battery, even as an option.
Under the printer cover, above the printer, there are supports for common memory card types, but also, under the finger cursor, a personalized support for MicroSD cards, illustrating the increasing popularity of this Format.
The 90 mm LCD screen is a good size for photo preview and leaves a lot of room for the Canon menu system. We are sure that this is the result of many newsgroups, but we think there are too much controls at the front of this machine. Besides the power button, one for printing and the other to exit a menu choice, there is a big button for creative additions to photos, like frames and dialog bubbles, and a total of eight buttons located on either side of the screen.
In addition to this, you will find one of the Canon rotary dials, on which you can also click Left and right to scroll through the photos and press in the middle to set a selected option. While this adds to its cost, this printer seems to need a touch screen to simplify control functions.
The combined film and photo cartridge, which can hold up to 50 brackets (although one cartridge for five is provided in the box), slides to the right under a fold-down side cover. On the left side are plugs for a USB connection to a PC and a PictBridge camera.
To use the printer in stand-alone mode, the only necessary configuration is to replace the plastic cover located in the cartridge housing with the supplied cartridge. If you want to print from a PC, you need to plug in the USB cable and install the Canon software, which, like other Selphys, includes Photo Express le and ZoomBrowser EX.
We find the special mechanism of the ES3, which is to remove the printing blanks from the cartridge by a slot located near the bottom of the printer, to rotate them by 90 degrees, then to iron them four times in total to form a photo Verbose color. Thus, although Canon claims a print speed of 55 seconds, we assume that this excludes rotation and preparation time, as we could not print in less than 75 seconds. It’s an equal footing with HP photo inkjet printers, but twice as long as Epson’s.
However, the final product is completely dry and ready to be viewed and the image detail level 600 x 300 dpi is excellent. The colors are vivid but not abnormal and the only place where they are dropped is in the shade areas, where considerable details can be lost. You can of course adapt to this, but most people will use the default settings.
The standard cutouts of postcards with perforated edges that you can fold and rip, you can lose details at the edges of your images, which rip off with unused tabs.
One of the most attractive features of the ES3, but which we have not been able to assess, is the printing in silver and gold. Canon has developed film cassettes offering either of these two metallic colors in addition to the cyan, magenta and yellow dye strips. These should be ideal for placing frames on photos and producing other special effects, but for now there are no silver or gold cartridges available for the machine.
With all the whims of the printer when feeding the whites, it’s not so quiet. We measured peaks of 61 dBA. This could therefore be irritating to other people trying to work or watch television while you are printing.
With all the consumables embedded in a cartridge, the cost of using the Selphy ES3 depends enormously on the price at which you can find the Canon Easy Photo packs. They are available in 50 printing capacities and in 100 printing capacities. By calculating the price of the 100 pack, we could not find it at less than £21.95, which is a cost per print of 21.95%.
