Go square with the new Canon Selphy Square QX10 printer *Updated*

Go square with the new Canon Selphy Square QX10 printer

*Updated: July 8, 2020, with pricing and unboxing video*

Canon’s new Selphy Square QX10 uses dye-sublimation technology to allow users to print square photos directly from their smartphones that are dirt-proof and water-resistant anytime and anywhere.

Available in pink, white and black, Canon says the new Selphy printer is meant for users of Instagram where most pictures are uploaded with a 1:1 aspect ratio. Additionally, photos printed using the dye-sublimation process generally have better colours and brightness when compared to those using zinc-paper.

 

Designed to print anywhere

Weighing 445g and only slightly bigger than the size of an average palm, the Selphy Square QX10 uses a simple micro-USB connection so it can be powered by even a power bank.

Using the Selphy Photo Layout 2.0 app and connecting over WiFi, each replacement paper pack comes with 20 sheets of paper (the Selphy Square QX10 has a 10 sheet paper capacity) and a replacement dye-sublimation (dye-sub) cassette.

We received a review unit and shot an unboxing video.

 

In 2019, Canon launched the iNSPIC S and C instant camera printers that could also print. Check out our first thoughts here.

The Canon Selphy Square QX10 is currently available for sale at S$219 with the replacement photo paper and a single dye-sub cassette are beings sold at S$19 a set.
