    I thought print was dead.

    It is just my opinion, but it doesn't seem like a very good idea.
    Whoever thought this up at Canon is a true marketing genius.
    Promoting tech advancement over the Polaroid One Step.
    A proof of his genius in that he was able to convince Canon to move this direction.
    For the camera, not so much.

    Perhaps you weren't aware that the Fuji Instax is like the biggest selling camera in the world.

    It's a gimmick, but that's not a bad thing. If youth is their target audience getting them used to the idea that they can use a camera that isn't a phone might make them more likely to pick up a better camera when they get older. Who knows, maybe even the idea that prints are fun may even come back into style.

    Maybe this is like Canon's mirror-less release. They wait years or decades to release their version of a body.
    Then they capture the majority of the market share.

    In my opinion, print is not dead and never has been. In the old days, when a walk to school was in knee deep snow and uphill both ways, we printed because we had to. Now we print only what we want to print. No more waiting for the processor to get back with us to see how things turned out. I still get stuff printed. The difference is I don't have boxes full of printed photos I never would have printed to begin with. The young are going to love this. I think the success of Fuji with a similar line proves that. Good for Canon! Good for Fuji too!
