Muscat: Canon unveiled the Canon Zoemini, a lightweight, pocket sized and portable photo printer, featuring ZINK (zero ink) technology. The Canon Zoemini connects seamlessly to the Canon Mini Print app via Bluetooth for instant printing of photos and social media snaps in a matter of seconds. The Canon Zoemini prints out personalised 2x3 inch (5 x 7.6cm) photos, straight from a mobile phone, tablet or social media apps.
The Canon Zoemini is the perfect accessory for people who enjoy printing and sharing special moments with family and friends, wherever the mood takes them. The Canon Zoemini will inspire people to unleash their creativity, thanks to an abundance of on-trend filters, frames and AR effects through the Canon Mini Print app, free to download from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store from September 5, 2018.
“Storytelling is always better when it is done with the help of images. We at Canon encourage visual storytelling, for which we are continuously innovating and launching exciting imaging solutions,” said Binoj Nair, Senior Manager – B2C Marketing & Direct Sales, Canon Middle East.
“With our newly launched portable photo printer, the Canon Zoemini, we are enabling consumers to print their most precious memories anywhere, any time, and to be able to re-live their memories in a more sentimental way through physically printed images,” he added.
Whether it’s a special family occasion, holiday or simply meeting up with friends, the Canon Zoemini encourages creativity, with easy to print, peel-and-stick photos that can be used to personalise everyday items such as laptops, mobile covers, bags, mirrors or bedroom walls. School bags can also be decorated with a photo collage of friends, families, pets or even a carefully crafted selfie.
Fitting comfortably in the palm of a hand, handbag or pocket, the compact and sleek device comes in a choice of three enticing and distinctive colours: rose gold/white, white/silver and black/slate grey.
The Canon Zoemini features ZINK technology, meaning zero ink is required. The rechargeable battery-powered portable printer comes with a starter pack of 10 x Canon ZINK photo paper (peel-and-stick back, smudge-free, water and tear resistant), with additional paper available for purchase in packs of 20 or 50.
The Canon Mini Print app also features a tiling function, enabling the creation of larger posters or images made up of four or nine prints, as well as over 10 unique collage templates that print a 2x3 inch photo. From retro selfies to playful animal face filters, the Canon Zoemini provides the ability to customise and quickly print memories.
In addition to Instagram and Facebook, the Canon Mini Print app lets users connect with Google Photos and Dropbox, so they can print physical copies of their most treasured memories while out and about.
Weighing just 160g and with dimensions of 118mm x 82mm x 19mm, the Canon Zoemini will be available for purchase from October 2018.
