Canon introduces NEW instant cameras that can shoot & print while on the move
Capturing fun moments is now as easy as ‘snap, print and stick’ with Canon’s new iNSPiC cameras from its Mini Photo Printer rebranded line.
MANILA, 21 JUNE 2019 – During the Canon Experience 2019 at SM Megamall Fashion Hall, Canon launched the first instant cameras under its Mini Photo Printer line up. The iNSPiC [S] and iNSPiC [C] instant camera printers combine the fun-in-the-sun appeal of compact mini printers and digital camera capability in one pocket-sized gadget.
“We’re excited to bring the new iNSPiC instant cameras to the Philippine market and I’m happy to announce that it will be available by July 2019 in Canon’s authorized retail outlets and online shopping sites. The stylish and lightweight iNSPiC [S] and iNSPiC [C] offer a fun and exciting way to shoot and share inspiring pictures in an instant,” said Benny Yu, Head of Consumer Imaging & Information Division at Canon Marketing (Philippines), Inc. “We’re mindful of how our consumers’ behavior have evolved in this digital age where everything needs to be quick and easy, and we felt that these new products will complement their lifestyle as it offers a simple and fun way to snap, print, and stick photos. It’s the perfect sidekick for any gathering and occasion.”
iNSPiC [S] ZV-123A
Available in Pearl White, Matte Black and Rose Gold, this classy instant camera printer comes thinner than most compact digital cameras and is a perfect fit for small hands, slipping easily into clutch bags or pockets for a day of fun out in the sun, or a relaxing evening with friends. The ultra-slim profile packs in a powerful 8-megapixel fixed focus camera, so you can shoot and print instantly from just one device without the need to perform a juggling act with a separate camera and printer.
The real crowd-pleaser comes in the form of a built-in LED ring light that circles the camera lens and activates a powerful fill light for beautiful portrait shots.
Users can also connect the device to smartphones using the Canon Mini Print mobile app to print photos stored on smartphones or photo albums on social networking accounts. A quick reprint button makes it easy to get multiple reprints off the instant camera printer, while the app also receives a useful update to include a virtual shutter button for remote shooting, and with even more stickers for decorating photos before print.
The iNSPiC [S] also comes with a Micro SD slot that supports card capacities of up to 256GB, so holiday makers can choose to save the captured images before treasured moments onto a laptop back at home.
iNSPiC [C] CV-123A
The iNSPiC [C] series accompany the [S] series dressed in a palette of pop color design options, with flavors such as Bubble Gum Pink, Bumble Bee Yellow and Seaside Blue making a bold fashion statement at gatherings with friends and family, or simply just to stand out in the crowd! A built-in 5-megapixel camera and a selfie mirror next to the camera lens makes selfie-shooting easy, while a one-touch reprint button ensures no one leaves the party without first receiving a photo print of that one precious moment.
Printing Technology and Media
The Canon Mini Photo printer harnesses ZINK Zero Ink™ Technology from ZINK™, a revolutionary dry-printing technology that enables printing in color without the use of ink cartridges. It delivers 2x3-inch glossy photo prints that are smudge-proof and scratch-resistant, with a peel-and-stick reverse side that adheres effortlessly to the back of smartphones, laptops, tabletops, wall mirrors, or just about any smooth surface.
Canon Mini Print mobile app1
The Canon Mini Print app turns ordinary users into expert creators thanks to a vast library of photo-editing functions, creative filters, frames, stamps and text styles. These simple tools can be applied to photos snapped using the in-app camera integration, or on images downloaded from photo albums stored on cloud services such Facebook, Instagram, Google Drive, and Dropbox. Special features include augmented face distortion and the option to draw on photos before printing.
For occasions where 2x3-inch images will simply not do, the app also offers collage printing of up to four images, or a tile print function that creates an enlarged print made up of four or nine prints.
The iNSPiC [C] and iNSPiC [S] are available for only PHP 7,900 and PHP 9,900, respectively. For more information, click here.
