Jokes aside, the size of this thing is incredible. If the prints look similar to Instax prints, this'll be an instant buy for me.

After 1 week of gimmicky use, it's another device to forget to charge, forget at home, and lose at the bottom of some drawer full of other junk.

What about RAW? :unsure:

Aren't the ZINK prints raw enough for you? :giggle:

Anyway, IMHO, Canon design lacks any "cool" factor. These just look like a cheap P&S, while Fuji is trying to make funnier designs - anyway Fuji has both a Taylor Swift and Hello Kitty edition, so Canon is *******.

They definitely have to make Garfield, Mickey and Donald editions :giggle:

FWIW, to my eye ZINK prints don't look like Instax prints at all.

Anyway, this looks like Canon's response to the Fuji SQ10/SQ20 hybrid cameras - basically a tiny-sensor digital camera in the same box with a printer. The stated capture resolution is higher than Fuji's, though still not clear whether the sensor is physically any larger. Stated printing resolution, however, is lower than Fuji's.

Has micro-SD card storage, so perhaps the files will be exportable as they are from the Fuji cameras. But the files from the Fuji are very crude. I have an SQ10, and the files don't stand up well at all to enlargement beyond the tiny size you get from the built-in printer.

I guess the Fuji hybrids have sold well enough for Canon to think there's a market for this.

Still no dual card slots!! Blasphemy :p
Agreed, probably lacks IBIS as well, I didn’t see it in the list. I guess we can still hope they include it at release. And then, of course, it probably has banding. Better wait for the web reviewers.

Looks like they've glued a cellphone camera to a tiny printer!
I don't know why such thing exists!

This is a huge money earner for Fuji. If this has an effect on their profits, which is likely it's a huge deal. Fuji has been bankrolled by their instant camera sales to some extent.

I don't know what the Fuji Instax spec is, but f/2.2 for this seems impressive to me. I notice Fuji also makes a printer for cell phones.

There is more than the US market in the world. I am sure Canon has researched the global market and found it justifies a try at doing the camera.
