Canon has a new mini printer that lets you easily print 2 x 3-inch photos from your smartphone

If you’re shopping for a tiny printer that you can bring on the go to print your smartphone photos, you’re in luck - Canon has recently launched the Mini Photo Printer (model: PV–123), which has a small footprint of about 12 x 8cm and weighs just 160g.

Like HP’s Sprocket line of portable photo printers, Canon’s Mini Photo Printer uses the Zink dye-printing technology, which means no messy ink cartridges are involved. The 2 x 3-inch glossy photo prints are also smudge-proof and scratch-resistant, and have a peel-and-stick reverse side that you can stick to any flat and smooth surface.

The PV–123 has a built-in battery that lets you print up to 20 photos with a full charge. It connects to your smartphone over Bluetooth, and you can easily apply filters, text, photo frames, creative stamps to your photos with the Canon Mini Print app. Other fun options include augmented reality and the ability to create collage prints or tile prints (i.e., split a single image into multiple 2 x 3-inch prints). In addition to using the in-app camera, you can also retrieve and print photos that are on your Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, or Dropbox account.

The Canon Mini Photo Printer is now available at S$189 at all authorized dealers. Each pack of Zink photo paper (20 sheets) costs S$15. During this launch period, every purchase will net you a special bundle of Tokidoki premiums, which includes a special edition Tokidoki pouch, lanyard, charm, and printer body stickers. And between now and Dec 31st, you’ll also get an additional Tokidoki denim tote bag. According to Canon, this special edition Tokidoki bundle and denim tote bag are valued at S$98.

Three baseplate color options are available: Slate Gray, Mint Green, and Rose Gold. (Image source: Canon.)
