Although not nearly as exciting as its impending R5 mirrorless camera, the T8i or the 24–105mm F4–7.1, Canon has also announced the release of the Selphy Square QX10, its latest ultra-compact photo printer.
The Selphy Square has a built-in rechargeable battery and uses thermal transfer dye-sublimation to print images up to 68mm x 68mm (2.7in x 2.7in) with 287dpi resolution. The printer is rated for up to 20 prints on each charge, with each print taking roughly 43 seconds from start to finish.
The printer uses a new square-format ‘sticker-type paper’ Canon is calling XS-20L that has a specialized coating that ‘protects against splashes, spills, and fading for up to 100 years when stored in an album,’ according to Canon.
The Canon Selphy Square QX10 printer is available in black, green, pink and white for $150, while 20-pack of paper and ink will set you back $15. You can find out more information about the Selphy Square on Canon’s product page.
