Canon has a brand new camera now available at Best Buy, the Canon IVY CLIQ. It’s a super fun little camera that combines taking photos with a printer. As soon as you take your picture it prints out a copy for you!
1. The camera will instantly print a 2×3″ peel-and-stick photo right after you shoot it, directly from the IVY CLIQ camera. Thanks to the peel & stick back you can place these practically anywhere! My kids love sticking these on bulletin boards and in their travel journals.
2. There’s a memory card slot for a micro memory card that allows you can keep the digital copies to all the photos you take! (It does not come with a memory card.)
3. The IVY has a Selfie Mirror so you can take the perfect selfie. As you are taking the selfie you can look at the mirror to make sure you get yourself in the photo. I practiced this with a few friends at lunch the other day. I could see all of us in the mirror, so I knew we would all be in the photo. I didn’t do the best job, but I learned that on the back of the camera you have a choice to take a 2×2 photo or a 2×3 photo. I had it set to 2×2 and since there were four of us I should have set it to 2×3. I also should have sat on the other side, it’s my better angle.
4. The camera is available is super fun colors. CLIQ comes in Seaside Blue, Bumble Bee Yellow, Lady Bug Red and Mint Green. Mine’s mint green.
Instant 8.0MP photos
Canon IVY Cliq is a small even thought it is both a camera and a mini photo printer. It easily can fit in your back pocket or your front pocket so you can take it anywhere. No more heavy camera around your neck.
If you love taking selfies and want to be able to print them out it’s ideal. I’ve never seen a camera with a selfie mirror before!
ZINK photo paper
The camera uses ZINK photo paper. ZINK stands for Zero Ink printing technology. Instead of ink, it uses colorful dye-based crystals embedded inside the paper. The ZINK-enabled device uses heat to activate and colorize these crystals. It prints surprisingly fast and makes very little sound while doing so. Loading the paper was so simple, it was almost too easy.
The kids have already dropped it a few times and so far, they haven’t broken it!
You can print out your photos on the spot, so you are instantly rewarded.
