Pre-Photkina 2008: Canon has launched the SELPHY ES3 and SELPHY ES30 compact photo printers, that are minor upgrades to the SELPHY ES2 and SELPHY ES20 respectively. With a more compact design and larger LCD screens of 3.5” in ES3 and 3.0” in ES30, the printers offer Gold and Silver Easy Photo Packs for enhanced printing. The ES3 also comes with 1GB of built-in memory.
Creative photo prints that sparkle: The new SELPHY ES3 and SELPHY ES30
Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 26 August 2008: Canon today adds a touch of sparkle to its SELPHY Compact Photo Printer range, with two new models: the SELPHY ES3 and SELPHY ES30, which succeed the SELPHY ES2 and SELPHY ES20 respectively. Both models combine stylish, updated designs with new creative photo printing options - including new Gold and Silver Easy Photo Packs, larger LCD screens of 3.5” (SELPHY ES3) and 3.0” (SELPHY ES30), and three all-new image effects: Modern Bright, Pinhole Camera and Nostalgic. In addition, the SELPHY ES3 offers 1 GB built-in memory, allowing users to store their favorite photos for easy repeat printing.
For the ultimate ease in setup and operation, the SELPHY ES3 and SELPHY ES30 use Canon’s system of Easy Photo Packs – handy combined ink-and-paper cassettes. A new addition to the range comes in the form of special Gold (E-P20G) and Silver (E-P20S) Easy Photo Packs – which supplement standard colors with gold or silver ink. Both provide sparkling decorative additions to photo prints, party invitations or greetings cards.
Users can transform their pictures even more using the dedicated Creative Print button. Alongside a wide variety of layouts, filter effects and picture additions – such as clip art and frames – three new image effects are included: Modern Bright, Pin-hole Camera (which simulates the vignetting effect of old-fashioned cameras) and Nostalgic.
While retaining the space-saving ES vertical operation – which outputs prints to the top of the printer – the SELPHY ES3 and SELPHY ES30 offer new, curvaceous designs, with reduced footprints for even easier storage. A fixed carry handle offers enhanced portability, while memory card slots have been relocated for faster access.
Extra-easy operation is assured by several other design additions. Both models offer rapid image viewing and function selection with Canon’s Easy-Scroll Wheel, a more intuitive button layout, and a handy integrated power adaptor.
“More and more people are discovering the pleasure of turning their digital photos into lab-quality prints they can hold, pass round and share,” said Mogens Jensen, Head of Canon Consumer Imaging, Europe. “As well as making this process easy, the SELPHY ES3 and SELPHY ES30 offer our most extensive range of creative print options yet.”
