Expert Reviews

Canon Selphy ES30 Reviews

Expertreviews reviews the Canon Selphy ES30 and writes;
“Print quality is on a par with that of Agfaphoto’s AP 2300, but close examination revealed some faint stepping in areas of graduated colour, which is something that dye-sub printers don’t normally suffer from. You’ll need a sharp eye to spot it, though. “

Cnet reviews the Canon Selphy ES30 and writes;
“In terms of print quality, we were generally very impressed with the Selphy. Several prints did have a slightly yellowish tinge to them though, and we didn’t find that the photos matched those from one of the multifunction units we tested recently (the HP Photosmart C6380), appearing slightly less glossy and vivid. However, blacks were deep, skin tones were accurate and lifelike, all points in the Selphy’s favour.”

Canon Selphy ES30 User Reviews

Excellent Picture Quality…Lovin’ this printer!! | Rating: ★★★★★
“I absolutely love the quality of these photos. I love the ink used for these photos. Photos printed with this printer will last 100 years. I love being able to take this printer almost anywhere to use (it needs to be plugged in) I love the extra editing features built in. I love being able to print more than one photo on a 4×6 card. It’s fun watching the photos print.” – by Lynn

very good photo quality, not so portable as it appears, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The prints look just like the photos you get at a photo lab. A tad smaller, as many have said, maybe 1/8″ narrower and 1/16″ shorter than the standard 4×6. Quality-wise, vibrant color and good detail, just as a lab print. Photos are coated with a waterproof and UV-resistant layer.” – by Laurentiu Badea

Super Cool!, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I took it right out of the box switched out the cartridge it came with, and started printing. The picture quality isn’t HD, but it is good. The little guy does all the work. It runs through the printer 3 times to get all of the colors on it, so don’t get worried when the picture looks yellow during printing. I didn’t think I’d care for the borders & picture layout options, but I’m really appreciating it! I love it!!” – by Target Lover

print and save, | Rating: ★★★★★
“It was so easy to use and edit my photos. I like that the ink and paper are one unit. I hope the price for the cartriges isn’t to much. I have a Kodak all in one and it never worked right, this will definiately take its place. Good bye Kodak.” – by Katherine Mathews

Very Pleased w/ Canon Selphy ES30 photo printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“I’ve always been pleased with Canon products. I highly recommend this printer , easy to use, pic’s are great, very portable you won’t be disappointed ! My sister in law ordered and HP photo printer, that was 3 times as much as the Canon Selphy ES30, picture quality is the same. Highly recommend getting this photo printer.!” – by S. M. Tefteller

So easy an 88-year-old can use it! | Rating: ★★★★★
“The printer has been extremely easy to use. She is completely confident in printing images off her memory card. She has been extremely pleased with the pictures. We would definitely order this again should the need arise..” – by Roger or Theresa

Great Compact Photo Printer, | Rating: ★★★★★
“This produces sharp quality photos photos in about a minute. I would say the quality is 95% of what you would get from the huge Fuji Frontier printer at the drugstore. Not bad for something that a child could carry with one hand.” – by The Christopher

Awesome little printer!, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“Everyone was very impressed with it! The color screen and dial allow you to scroll through photos with ease and select/edit them as well. I loved the option of printing multiple pics on one sheet too (you can choose 2, 4, 8, or more pics per sheet). The ink cartridge is super easy to change out and I almost couldn’t believe how simple it is to insert the SD card on the top of the printer. Just slip it in and the printer is ready for you to view your pics! “ – by T. Kwong

Nice Prints | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I bought this out of curiosity, since I already have a good quality inkjet printer. It was on sale for $50, so there was not too much to lose. I have to say I really like this little printer. Unlike an inkjet, there is no need to use it once a week just to ensure it will work properly when needed. The ink and paper are packaged as a unit, so as long as you have paper, you know you have adequate ink to provide a photo. The quality of prints I have seen to date are easily as good as what we got from local one hour photo places, and without too much of a price premium over those services.” – by R. S. Bakowski
