    Fun camera with minor drawbacks

    Right off the bat, I like this Canon Ivy Cliq+2 Instant Camera & Printer. It has a nostalgic feel to it of point-n-shoot cameras that were fun to use back when cell phones were these giant bricks that needed a cigarette lighter in the car to charge. I’ll break this review down in two parts: The Camera and The App. This Cliq+2 has a sleek design and feels purposeful w/ the limited buttons and controls (all the frills are found in the app). You have the power button, the light setting (flash, outdoors, auto), a button to choose between Black & White or Vivid (color), a button to put a white border around your picture, and a button to take the actual picture. That’s it. Five buttons. It has an SD Card slot and it comes with a Micro-USB plug to charge the camera. The Micro-USB cable is annoyingly short, just over a foot long. There is a tiny little bar to thread a wristlet on either side of the camera for your preference, but I found it too cumbersome to attach it and gave up after 20ish minutes. The flash works great. The printer itself is quiet and really quick, although taking the cover off to insert the sticker printer sheets was tough. The camera would print whether I held it, laid it down, or stood it upright. It looks like it holds only 10 sheets at a time and it will blink when it’s out of paper or needs to be charged. The Cliq+2 uses Canon Zink 2”x3”sticker sheets and these are some high quality sticker sheets. I was seriously impressed with these sheets! I’m assuming you can use other brands of Zink sheets, but they all seemed to be within the same price range as Canon so I will continue to use this brand. These are not flimsy sticker sheets, they are THICCC and have a smooth, glossy finish. They were easy to stick to smooth surfaces (like my desk, a folder, my phone) and I was actually able to re-position them on some notepad paper a few times. They will lose their stickiness if you reposition it more than a few times though. I may have gotten carried away testing that out. The “quality” of the photo will vary with your app usage, but for simple point-n-click shots the pictures were nice. If you do NOT put an SD Card in, the camera will not save any pics. It will work just like any regular instant camera. If you do install an SD card, it will save your pics to the card and you can transfer them to your computer later. It will not send any pics you take to your phone. By the way, if you have not used these types of instant camera printers before, Zink is a type of ink-less printing (the sheets have these tiny color crystals in them that the camera heats up in a way to create your picture). Supposedly, these pictures will last for a couple of decades before fading out. The camera also has an auto-shutoff feature when it’s not being used to save your charge. The viewfinder is just like those when I was a 90s kid using disposable cameras on vacation because my parents would never allow us to use the Rebel (or was it an Eos?). Anyways, it’s a fish-eye lens to get your subject in the picture…generally. Do not count on it to get a perfectly centered picture. I wasted a few of my sticker sheets on shots that were off-centered before I figured the best way to get the right shot…. …and that’s to use the App. The box that this comes in lacks a user guide, but there’s a card inside w/ a QR code that will take you straight to the app store to download (or you can search Canon Mini Print) and it’s from here that can access the user guide, FAQ, and all the fun options to manipulate your photos. You will need your Bluetooth turned on for you to communicate with the printer part of the camera from your phone when you are ready to print. The app contains the standard photoshop options (filters, light adjustments, borders, texts, stickers, collage etc.), however; there is no crop or delete option! The closest I could get to crop was to pinch-to-zoom and then continue with my edits. The text option may be hard to read on some photos as they do not have a black/white border to help the letters standout on any background. Everything in the app was free and there were plenty of options (even Halloween frames as it’s October at the time of this review). You can edit your photos in other apps and access them from the gallery to print or even pull pics off your Facebook or Instagram to print as well. They also offer circular sticker sheets to purchase if you want something other than rectangle. You can save any of your photos that you create in the app. My Galaxy S10+ had no problem running the app or communicating with the camera. If you want to get a really good sticker pic, use your phone then send it to the camera to print. I believe this camera was meant to be used in a fun way, but I have much more in store for this Canon. Although this will be a blast for older children or adults to use at a party, this can do so much more! The Canon Ivy Cliq+2 would be great to use as a “picture label” for items that needed to be stored in containers for organization (crafts, toys, accessories). For example, you can easily snap a picture of your shoes and then stick it to the outside of the shoe container then store it away. Then you can see your shoes at a glance without opening every box. This would also be great to use at the start of the school year, take a picture of your students/staff and edit in their name and stick the label at their desk or backpack cubby or for making a chart to hang up. Or even design your business card and then stick this to your folders, merchandise, etc. You can avoid the sticky part altogether and put these pictures in frames for your desk, make tree ornaments, or add to holiday cards to send. Overall, this is a neat and fun camera that can do more than capture great memories.

    Portable and convenient

    Supper easy to use. Love how portable it is and how quick and convenient you can get your pictures. I wish the quality was a little bit better but i think its because of the type of paper it uses. Its cool that you can also use the pictures as a sticker and the app gives you many options to edit your photos.

    Slim pocket camera and wireless printer.

    The Canon Ivy Cliq +2 is a fun little camera that’s more like a pocket photo printer. I’ve seen a few other competitors around, but I think this is probably the thinnest and most truly pocketable. It’s as slim as a deck of cards and while it kind of reminds me of the old instant print Polaroid days, this little camera is easier to carry and does so much more. As a camera, it has a unique layout in that there’s a traditional viewfinder with a fixed wide angle lens, but the front of the lens has a reflective coating around it which serves as a selfie viewfinder. It seemed kind of gimmicky at first, but the reflective coating actually does the job fairly well, even at night. Keep in mind, this is meant to be a casual, fun phone, so don’t expect anything remotely close to serious, high end digital photos. In fact, your smartphone might take better quality photos but that’s not a problem here, because the Ivy Cliq + 2 was made to sync up with your phone through Canon’s Mini Print app. Setup was a breeze on my Android phone and thankfully the app is straightforward and easy to use. There’s photo filters, frames, stickers, text, and other custom photo editing options to choose from, but the best part to me is how it can sync up with my phone’s camera feed, Facebook, Instagram, and Google Photos. This was huge to me, because I have a bunch of photos on those accounts that I wanted to edit and print out for friends. In fact, I’ve been using it as a wireless pocket printer more than anything and there’s a certain joy to turning my friends into printable meme stickers right in front of them. The prints come out as 2”x3” full color photo stickers with a peelable back that reveals the adhesive. Adhesion is pretty good, kind of reminds me of a bumper sticker, but not nearly as permanent. Print quality is ok, nothing studio quality, but clean enough overall and perfectly suitable for casual photo stickers. At about 50 cents each photo print, it’s on par with other cameras with built in printers, but this might have the most friendly form factor. The translucent white has a pinkish sheen, the fit and finish is good, and the body feels sturdy despite being all plastic. I like this camera a bit more than I thought I would, but I think that’s because I find using it as a pocket printer for my phone to be pretty fun. For the price point, I do wish the camera was a bit better, but it’s good for what it’s designed to do. This is casual photography at its most casual. If you’re in the market for a fun and truly pocketable camera with a built-in printer, or even just a wireless pocket photo printer, definitely give the Canon Ivy Cliq + 2 a look. Being truly pocketable is huge plus and it's a camera I don't mind giving to little kids to play with.
