X'mas Gift Idea 4: A photo printer that fits in your pocket

X'mas Gift Idea 4: A photo printer that fits in your pocket

Canon PV-123 Mini Photo Printer - A printer that fits in your pocket

If the idea of a tiny printer that fits in your pocket and lets you print out your smartphone photos wherever you are sounds like a good idea, you’re in luck - Canon's new PV-123 Mini Photo Printer has a tiny footprint of 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 available now at S$189 at all authorized dealers. Each pack of Zink photo paper (20 sheets) costs S$15. Additionally, if you purchase one before 31st December, you'll also get a special bundle of Tokidoki premiums, which includes a special edition Tokidoki pouch, lanyard, charm, printer body stickers, and a denim tote bag (total value: S$98).
