I can't wait to see where this technology goes! I will say, I would definitely suggest as a gift for any teenager or pre-teen, although I love it myself, we may need to buy a few more! All are pleasant but somewhat unusual-looking colors for a printer. Nice to be able to print right away wherever you are. The item was not user friendly and the picture quality is not good. I think younger crowds don't mind it and might even prefer it, they're not putting their prints in a frame or hanging them, they go in locker rooms, binders, bulletin boards, etc. Never mind the small size—why the 3:2 shape? This is one of the most economical and compact printers available. It can also print photos with an adhesive backing. It was also very easy to put the blank film into the printer.
I know a lot of pros that own Fuji Instax stuff, I'm not trying to claim they're or people like me are a majority of the market for that stuff but I do know there's no single statistic you could point at to prove it one way or the other. And no offense, but just because you haven't printed any pictures, doesn't mean nobody does. The big exception in this lot is the Lifeprint 3x4. But I thought it would be fun to take on trips where I would be meeting children. But their Printing Solutions products are actually pretty good. Except you I guess, because mismatched sensor and printing formats seems to be giving you fits, still not a new thing tho.
The Cannon Mini printer is great. When I want a print that will last, I use my Fuji Instax printer or an actual Canon inkjet printer--not this dye sublimation unit. Over the past few years, we've seen a surge of pocket photo printers that you operate solely from your smartphone or tablet. What's particularly cool is the paper features a peel-off back that turns the photo into a sticker -- if you want. I bought this for an upcoming trip so that I could journal as I travel.
I give Canon's Imaging division loads of crap for the things we all know about. I'm a bit confused why Canon would be embracing a marginal technology developed during Polaroid's failing years? I don't think anyone but the manufacturers could tell you who's really using these things the most, and even they might not have an accurate idea unless they're gathering some statistic data from the apps. Does everything it says and more. Dealers, distributors and other resellers are not eligible for this offer. The printer is pretty fast. I don't even really care about printing but I think a lot of the people I shoot would get a kick out of it.
It will calibrate itself when the first print job is sent. Now, all that being said, 2x3 prints are kinda crappy and nearly as disposable as anything online. It is smaller than my phone - very compact. However, what does matter, is not the sensor ratio, but the ratio the user chooses to take the picture. Those are a much better value of you actually care about print quality or cost a little more than portability. Canon still has the more premium Selphy line as well, there's something for everyone. Order will be shipped to a street address in the 50 United States or the District of Columbia only.
This physical configuration, aside from the pastels, is nearly identical to that of the Lifeprint 2x3. Add frames, emojis and other fun effects with the Canon Mini print app and hand them out to your friends. On the other hand, WiFi issues can be one of the biggest aggravations with a printer. Bluetooth is only connection option. I wish there were more to play with. There is still a market for them or Canon would not have gone to the trouble to create it.
I mean, look at the people buying the Fuji Instax cameras that like the idea that they can print what they just shot. When a particular technology comes out, multiple companies will build their own products around that technology. With internet users having an average of seven social media accounts, products that support connections between people and technology have become ever more important. I don't doubt that this new device will do well, and probably even beat the competition in terms of reliability and ease of use. It's very useful and ergonomic to handle. It measures 1 by 4. For managing your images and sending jobs to the printer, the Canon Mini Print mobile app is available as a free download.
I bought this for an upcoming trip so that I could journal as I travel. Phones are simply the photo hub for many mobile photographers these days; it's easier for me to send the photos to my phone anyway before printing since direct camera to printer output would require akward or automatic printing on something that isn't as intuitive as my phone. Print and customize your photos directly from your smartphone or tablet via the Canon Mini Print App. A slot on the front edge, from which your printed photos emerge, spans the paper path. Not too affordable to get too crazy at parties though. I received a free sample of the ivy mini photo printer a couple weeks ago and I've used it at least 5 times now. This app can customize your photos by adding filters, frames, or even emojis, and also allows you to pull images directly from social media for printing.
