We have to give it up for Canon. They certainly put a twist into the portable printer market. The company made its new ES3 and ES30 Selphy printers look like a pair of baby monitors.

Sadly, you can’t check in on the kiddies or even tap into neighbors’ phone calls with either unit. However, Canon says (via SlashGear) that each one has a memory card reader, PictBridge support, and plenty of other extras, including picture frames, clip art, and other ways to tweak your memories.

Sure, they both seem kind of cute—until you are scouring electronics stores in search of the “integrated” ink and paper cartridges.

Both have the same feature set, except the ES3 has 1GB of internal memory, as well as an extra half-inch on its 3.5-inch LCD. That jacks the price up an extra $50.

The Selphy ES3 retails for $200, while the ES30 runs $150. Both are available now.
