Canon announced two new cameras with integrated printers, which added to its IVY CLIQ range. The new models, named the IVY CLIQ+2 and IVY CLIQ2, produce 3 x 2 inch prints, which can be framed before printing and used as labels. Both models have mirrors around the lens to facilitate self-portraits.
The IVY CLIQ2 is based on a 5 megapixel image sensor, while the IVY CLIQ+2 uses an 8 megapixel sensor. The first camera has built-in filters, which users can access right in the camera. The second comes with a smartphone application that allows users to preview images, decorate them, add text and share them before printing.
Zink printers, which use the principle of thermal printing, are built into the cameras. The heat “shows” the dots of the basic CMY colors in special paper. According to Canon, printing a 3 x 2 inch image takes about 50 seconds. The camera accommodates ten sheets of paper. You can print up to 25 sheets of paper without recharging the battery.
The new cameras will be on sale this month, along with the new round paper stickers. Model IVY CLIQ +2 will cost 150 dollars, IVY CLIQ2 – 100 dollars, a pack of round stickers is valued at $ 13, a pack of ordinary rectangular paper is worth 10 dollars.
