    Instant Photos - Fast and Easy

    While a limited number of picture print pages are included with the start-up kit, which does make me wonder about the cost of'refills', I was happy to be able to print crisp/clear photos relatively quick without lugging around a photo printer.

    A great rendition of an instant printing camera

    For those of us who grew up with cameras that were able to print instantly, and the miracle that grew before our eyes, this is a great throwback to those times with the technology of today. A great marriage. The negatives I've that prevent a full 5 stars is that the shutter button is positioned so that you hit it by mistake, waisting an expensive print. It should be recessed or require more effort to press, to prevent this from happening. Also, I want to tell you that you cannot just use this as a digital camera, only can you save images if you use a micro SD card and only what you print. This is a disappointment. Now, the positives, and there are many. The selfie mirror on the front is ingenious! It helps to use something simple to help you get a great picture. The size and feel of the camera is superb, feels solid and not at all cheesy. It has a feel of a much more expensive camera. The print quality of the images is outstanding! They come out quick and very decent. I've used another similar product and simply cannot compare to this camera. This is a unique product with an audience wanting to discover what we grew up with, a print that comes out instantly that can be left behind without having to email something to someone and maybe print it, and you forget to do it, and those images are just forgotten about. Print it on the spot, give it to someone who will really enjoy it and hold onto it. It is a top quality print and I really enjoy using it. I've purchased additional paper for it which equates to $.50/print, and for what it is, it is worth it. If you want something unique that may or may not have been experienced by someone today, this is a #1 gift for them. Or for yourself. Rediscovering how to print and give someone a picture they can hang onto is refreshing and something I really have enjoyed using.

    Fun Camera with Some Issues

    I gave the Canon Ivy Cliq to my daughter last week right before camp, and it was a huge hit. She loved being able to get pictures of her memories, but being able to share them, physically, then and there was awesome, she said. It can even easily print multiple copies of the same picture, which is great for group photos. The printed pictures, as well as the digital versions look great. Keep in mind that this is a 5 megapixel camera, so it isn't for high end photography, but it is great for catching memores. It is about the size of a cell phone, so it fits easily in a purse or pocket. I did have several issues with the camera though: The battery only lasts long enough to take and print 20-30 pictures. Also, you can't take more photos if you are out of paper, even if you have a MicroSD card installed (I believe this needs to be fixed with an update). Do note that the camera can only hold 10 sheets of paper at a time, so you see how this can quickly become a problem.

    Very cute basic camera for teens to have fun and save memories. Print quality is ok, not the best but it's not a professional camera so I don't expect much! Kids love it and I love it to create memory books. I would recommend this to a friend.

    gimmicky instant camera

    The Canon IVY CLIQ Instant Camera is a gimmicky point and shoot camera that prints each picture you take on Peel & Stick ZINK Photo Paper. The paper costs about fifty cents a 2x3 inch sheet and fits in the camera like a small deck of cards. Taking pictures is pretty easy, actually a bit too easy as the shutter button is way too easy to trigger when handling the camera. I took one accidental picture after loading in the paper. The camera is pretty basic with a fixed lens, an auto flash and a selfie mirror on the front. With this basic model, there is no way to take a picture, preview and then print. Press the shutter button and you print (along with saving the image to a micro SD card). As for the prints, they are fairly basic and look like a bit flat color wise. Given the quality (or lack of) the prints and small size (don't expect 70/80's era instant prints) I can't really recommend the camera. My teen children did think instant prints were pretty cool though, especially with the sticky backing for placement on a surface. Pros: - Instant prints - Camera looks cool - SD card for storing images you took Cons: - Small, unremarkable instant prints - No preview, click the shutter you get a print - No control over flash, exposure or much else - Takes about 25 prints per charge

    Fun colors, can print some of the picture leaving room to write on the print. Picture quality is good for instant. Micro sd option is nice to save the prints for additional printing/memories for later. Form factor is comfortable in the hand and the charge holds a decent amount if pictures. Con: is the film is expensive and you have to buy the Plus model to use it as a mobile printer.

    Capture that Magic Moment

    Have you ever been taking a picture and thought wow I wish I could just have an instant picture to have and share? Well look no further Canon has made the IVY CLIQ to fill your instant picture needs! This compact lightweight camera takes a beautiful picture and prints it out in under a minute! No more uploading and going to the store! So, what are the core features of this camera you may wonder? . Snap 5 MP photos to print instantly . Take great selfies with the Selfie Mirror . Print fun 2"x3" photos in 50 seconds or less . Every photo has a peel & stick back . Save all your photos with the MicroSD card slot . Simply press the reprint button right on the camera and print an additional 2x3" photo to share with friends Unboxing the camera was straight forward and came with a 10-sheet picture pack to print on. It is recharged by small microUSB cable (included). The camera is thin and compact enough to hold in your hand or use the included strap. The camera does sport some trendy colors such as the Seaside Blue (which is the one I have), Bumble Bee Yellow or Lady Bug Red! So, whatever your personality is the color is there to fit! So, lets get to the details! Does it work? Oh, does it! This camera sports some quick printing time and looks high quality for the 2x3 format. Once you print the photos you can choose to stick them on stuff, or you can make a collage as they are a nice 2x3 size (perfect for those baby books and scrapbooking! Selfie Mode? Yes, this camera has a faux selfie mode by including a small selfie mirror on the front so you can get that perfect angle of that perfect moment. Nice thing is you can hit the reprint button and reprint that selfie again and give to your friend or loved one no need to take another photo. So how long doe sit last on one charge? 28 photos printed on one charge for me. Which isn't that bad considering you aren't going to be taking hundreds of these at a time. It only takes 90 minutes to fully recharge the battery. It does have an auto off feature after approx. 5 min so need to worry if you leave on by accident. The ZINK Photo paper Packs are inexpensive at 5 packs for $25 at the time of this review. My Final Impressions- This camera comes in a time where cellphones are doing the quick pictures. This camera brings back that feeling of "fun" memories with instant gratification of having a physical product post picture. You can save and share on the microSD card, but this camera really shines with its instant print features in very bright settings some colors bleed a little but minor. I really enjoyed using this for those moments I wanted a permanent memory that could be saved physically for years to come! Canon nailed bringing fun back to taking memories in a time of all digital.

    Fun little camera to have around for instant prints. The size of the photos and sticky-back are perfect for adding images to journal entries. The pictures themselves tend to have a retro look and work best if you're shooting in bright light. Word to the wise: pay close attention to the actual framing in the view-finder. Very easy to accidentally crop out more than you meant to. Camera itself looks great and price is right!

    Great Instant Camera

    I like this instant camera. It has come in handy for my daughter who is using it with her friends, printing pictures from it to decorate their rooms, add them to underneath their cell phone covers and put them in various places like folders or on refrigerators, etc. The "selfie-mirror" on the front of it has helped them get some good shots of themselves... Kids... Unlike the older instant cameras, the pictures come out quickly and are already developed, no drying time. They are only 2x2 or 2x3 photos but, great for quick shoot and stick anywhere (thanks to the peel off backing). This is not a DSLR but for a camera that is this small and thin, lightweight and ready to go with a push of a button, at 5MB, it's fun to use with quality photos. The built in rechargeable battery lasted long enough for a 14 year old to be happy with it so I'd imagine it was a touch over 20 pictures. There is a slot for a MicroSD Card so you can save the photos and transfer / print them later in larger formats. Good luck with it!

    Cute Modern Day (Almost) Disposable Camera

    If you are looking for high quality prints and ability to take pics in almost any situation (lighting etc), this is NOT for you. If you want something compact, fun, easy to operate that gives instant gratification by printing a pic in an instant then this IS for you. There is the option to save pics you have taken on an SD card but the image quality just isn't up to par with what your cell phone can do (and who doesn't have a cell phone camera now a days? @@@@@@@ so I would just recommend using the Cliq because you can have a pic that you take in your hand to hold within seconds. It's a little wonky sometimes as you really don't know how many pics you have left in your camera, I just keep taking pics until I cant take any more then reload. Its also got a selfie mirror on the front for instant selfies. I have mirror-less SLRs that cost thousands and this obviously doesn't compare BUT for a compact camera you can take anywhere the Cliq a fun inexpensive choice. My daughter loves it even though she has an iPhone for most of her pics and has started a collection of the instant shots from the Cliq that she has displayed on her wall in her room. Good fun for what it is.

    Fun Camera, esp. for Tweens

    This isn't a bad camera. Its about as good as a cell phone camera from about 2 years ago, so the pictures are decent and the fact it prints 2x3 pictures on stickers made it super fun for my tween and friends. They giggle up a storm as they setup funny shots and used the sticky backs. Honestly watching them goof off made the camera worth and the print quality from the zink paper is quite good, I took a picture of my kids and shoved it in my wallet. Just note if you do give to a tween you will burn through the Zink paper like mad, but I didn't mind because they are all having fun with it and I am able to sneak a few cute pictures of my own. It does have a MicroSD card slot on the bottom to save the pictures to be transferred to a computer if you want as well. Overall this is a great camera. Is it something for professional use, no, but it's good for fast snaps of the family and just enjoy and have fun with something analog in a digital age.

    Good For Specific Applications

    The Canon - IVY Cliq Instant Film Camera is a handy device for very specific applications. If you're looking for an all-around camera, look somewhere else. This is simply a modern application of the old Polaroid experience - take a picture and get a print. I also have one of the new Polaroids and, aside from the nostalgic form factor, I like this better - mainly because the print out of the photo is much quicker. There are some tweaks that could improve this - such as built-in memory with the option of whether or not to print a shot immediately (for when you know you moved or slipped and don't want to waste the photo paper). Otherwise, the primary use I can see is for social gatherings where you want to stick immediate pics up somewhere for people to see. Would be fun for a kids' birthday party, etc. We'll probably use it in a Sunday School class so new kids can have their name and picture on a board with others. Otherwise, I'll stick with my current smartphone for normal photography needs.

    The Canon IVY Cliq Instant Film camera is very easy to use. It comes with one package of 10 sheets of Canon Zink Paper. It is easy to load and it calibrates the camera with a blue sheet that spits out first. You have the option to take take 2x3 or 2x2 pictures. The Zink photo paper is a very durable sticky paper (which is why I guess it runs about $.50 a sheet before tax). The camera comes with one package of 10 sheets -which I really wish it came with more. There is no digital screen on this camera so it's really like a point and click. You can take selfies by looking in the small "selfie mirror" (which mimics a mirror in a park bathroom). Overall, it's a cool concept and the paper that the pictures are printed on is durable. I find it to be a little overpriced for the overall basic print a picture on demand camera.

    The Canon IVY Cliq is an update on the old Polaroid of years ago. It produces zero ink pictures and it does a good job. The instant ink photos feel a bit like a gimmick, but they are fun. Last summer I picked up a Polaroid Onestep and I was incredibly disappointed. the pictures looked awful, and the film was incredibly expensive. Thankfully, the Cliq suffers from none of those problems. On a single charge, I was able to take ten pictures and the pictures came out looking pretty good. I compared the IVY Cliq with the HP Sprocket instant ink printer. I took one picture with my phone and the other with the Cliq. I probably got more fine detail with the Sprocket, but the colors looked better with the IVY. Also, there was less banding and distracting lines with the IVY. The photos looked more like actual, tiny photos. The camera itself comes with a tiny selfie mirror built in along with a slot for a micro-sd card to back-up pictures. Both worked as expected. I wish this camera had a digital view screen and a way to print photos from my phone, but as an instant point and print, it works well. My general attitude with reviews is "did the item work as described and did I enjoy it?" . The IVY more than met those expectations. I wish it had Bluetooth built-in (I believe the more expensive models do), but I can't fault this model as it is good at what it does. I think the cameras are fun and look snappy, the prints look good, the film isn't too expensive (last I checked you can get a pack of 20 shots for $10), and the device is simple and reliable. Easily recommend to friends and family. Note: With Mother's Day /graduations coming up, I think these cameras will make for a good gift. Combine the camera with a photo album for small prints, and really make their day.

    This camera does exactly what it's designed to. It's not here to take the most fabulous instant prints you've ever seen, nor does it have advanced features that allow you to capture a high resolution picture. However, what it does do, it does well. It's great for printing little photos of random memories, with a retro feel. The print quality is as expected for something like this. It's not going to have the best quality image, but it's going to capture a small memory, one photo at a time. The prints don't take super long to print, but you'll have to wait for the picture to dispense before you start hitting another photo. The paper is easy to load, and I recommend grabbing a pack or two. I shot through the initial pack within a couple of hours walking around the park. You can select the orientation and the size of the photo (for extra writing space). The included adhesive, allows it to be put on a wall, or any appliance that allows a post-it to stay on. If you've ever had a Polaroid instant camera, this will bring back all those memories in a smaller package. Whatever you do, don't try to compare this to a high end camera, you'll be disappointed at the low res prints.

    Cute, fun, instant photo, for 1998

    Though this camera is fun and cute, it really makes you realize how far we have come along in small digital cameras to roll back to something like this. It is somewhat satisfying to snap a shot and in less than a minute have it printed out and ready to stick anywhere. However, when you snap that shot and then wait one minute to realize you just wasted about 50 cents to get a bad picture that you need to take again, it gets disappointing quick. Using the tiny selfie mirror, for the most part came out just as expected, but using the tiny viewfinder and the very faint sight picture I had a lot of chopped off pictures. However, with any camera, a little experience with it does tend to get better, but that is $$ wasted each time. If you get the refill paper in bulk, you can get the cost per picture down a fair bit. But, being that there is absolutely no way to preview the shot before printing, it really just feels like I'm wasting money and time to find out it was not the shot I was looking for. With everything auto for this camera, it really is just point and shoot. However, feedback is a little slow and the single led just blinks in all sorts of fashion. There is the capability to save the pictures on a micro sd card and they are actually a bit larger than what is printed. As in the printed pictures are a cropped version of the original. However, their quality, at 5MP, is fairly low. But, being that they were only meant to be printed on a 2x3 inch piece of paper, they don't need a lot. The only problem is, this model has no way of selecting and printing any of those other pictures again. You can reprint the last picture, but that is it. The quality of the prints aren't bad. I'd say better than classic Polaroid pictures, but far less than ink jet printer images. Even a cheap ink jet printer prints larger and better quality pictures. To me, it looked like a blue hue to every picture I took, especially in shadows and gradient areas. Like there isn't actually a black in the zero ink process but a really deep blue. But other colors were surprisingly vibrant. In general, this camera is fun, but being that I have been spoiled with modern digital cameras where I can choose to save or delete the image, especially before putting it to paper, I feel like I went back in time. A time where we had no idea what our pictures truly looked like till they were developed. At least the picture is developed in a minute compared to the old 1 hour photo. But, even then, it just doesn't fully feel worth it to me.

    The Canon - IVY Cliq Instant Film Camera in Ladybug Red is simply outstanding. The IVY Cliq takes fantastic pictures that you can print immediately directly from the camera using the provided photo paper. Simply insert the paper into the camera and select the option to print your image. The convenience of being able to print and share your images without the use of email/printers/memory cards is awesome. If you desire to save your images, the camera supports microSD memory cards with capacity up to 256GB. That is plenty of storage capacity for high quality photos. This camera makes a great gift as well. We have kids that love photography and the IVY Cliq was the perfect birthday present. It's durable and compact, making it the ideal traveling companion. The camera is extremely easy to setup and use. Within 5 minutes of opening, you can be capturing the world around you in stunning quality, vibrant colors, and impressive detail that you can share with you family and friends, or just frame to place in the home/office. I added a few pictures taken while the weather was nice last weekend. I would highly recommend the IVY Cliq Instant Film Camera.

    Instant Fun . . with trade-offs

    Canon IVY CLIQ - This is my idea of a party camera. It could be a nice incentive for school-aged kids to get social and share instant photos of their friends and other party goers. For the rest of us, it's a very convenient instant camera that captures a moment or makes a permanent record, with the printed result in your hand . . . now. But, "instant" comes with a trade-off and you won't be leaving your camera/phone home. . FRAME an image . . . CLICK . . . WAIT 30 seconds or so for a cute 2x2 or 3x3 PHOTO to pop out. Instant. Permanent. SETUP and USE: The photo paper loads as 10 sheet packages (a 10 sheet pack is in the box and costs approx. $10 for 20 sheets when you re-supply). You should have charged up the camera beforehand. There is NO need for ink . . . this is a special paper using technology that never needs ink. There is a microSD slot if you want to have digital backups for your computer - Just do it; trust me. [The CLIQ PLUS version of the camera adds Bluetooth connectivity and adds around $60 to the price if easier connectivity or backups are important to you.] With either version of the camera, you can also do reprints immediately after taking a picture using a top/rear button on the IVY CLIQ camera. There is a built in flash and an optical viewfinder to properly frame your pictures. I found it very easy to get an image that was always properly framed. Proper lighting was a bit trickier, but improved with experience PERFORMANCE: So, how did the pictures look? Nice and sharp, but my first close-up picture was a bit washed out. A little practice recognizing how much light on my subjects was ideal, and my pictures improved to a natural, colorful print. Sure, they were not as richly intense as I can accomplish with my newest Canon home printer, but that's why I put a microSD card to print out those backups at home. According to Canon, this version of the IVY CLIQ has a 5-megapixel resolution, and at these small photo sizes, the prints are pretty and natural looking. The backing of the print can be peeled away to reveal adhesive, if you want to decorate stuff. RECOMMENDATIONS: I suppose you could think of this Canon Ivy CLIQ as a nostalgic throwback, with some updates. It is reminiscent of those instant cameras we first saw in the 1950s-60s. I like the idea of encouraging social interactions and creating instant memories while the party is still on. I think imaginative kids, especially, will find ways to capture their world, decorate their stuff, and explore artistic projects. I can recommend this camera, with the caveats I've noted.

    This is one cool little camera! It prints out a 2x3 photo that has a backing on it that can peel off to be made a sticker! Setup is a breeze. It comes with everything you need to get started. I charged up the device and inserted the zink paper. This thing has no print cartridge nor requires any ink! It's all in the paper! One thing I liked about the camera is it's simplicity. It has 2 buttons. ON/OFF and the shoot button. How simple!! I snapped a couple of photos to test it out and I was so surprised by the picture quality. It makes a great little photo that is sharp and clear! It took some work to get the sticker backing off, but before long I was sticking little pics all over the house, much to the chagrin of my wife. Think of all the little photos I can leave around the house for her to find!! I loved this camera! I give it 4 stars for it's fun factor, ease of use, and simplicity. I did not give the 5th star because I feel that the paper is a little pricey at 50 cents per sheet.

    Canon - IVY Cliq Instant Film Camera - Bumblebee Yellow Maybe I am missing the point... OK. Maybe I am missing the point. I have the Canon Ivy Printer, and I use it as needed when I find a picture I want to print out. It does a really nice job for a small format print. So I was intrigued when I found the IVY Cliq Camera. I was excited when the package arrived looking forward to having camera and printer in one package. After opening the package, the excitement quickly died. I grew up back when instant cameras were a thing. Film cameras were the norm. Digital cameras were not a thing yet. The fun part of taking pictures back then was seeing how they turned out after waiting an hour at the local photo lab. Then you start going thru the pictures and were lucky to get 3 or 4 good shots of people in a 36 picture roll. The odds of someone not blinking or making a odd face were pretty slim. Instant cameras were fun too as you took the picture and stood there like a fool waving it in the air trying to get it to develop quicker. The fun there was watching the photographer and seeing the disappointment as they see the picture was nowhere near as good as they had hoped as cousin Jimmy decided to stick a finger in someone's nose. Why do I bring up this memory? At 50 cents per sheet, taking a photo to be instant printed is not cheap. It would be very easy to go thru 10 pictures and not get a good one. Clearly there must be a way to take a picture and view it before it prints. Right? Maybe a app that sends the photo over Bluetooth...but then why not just use the phone to take the picture? But don't worry Canon took care of that...there is no app...there is no Bluetooth...there is no control over what prints. All pictures print, even the nose picking Jimmy pictures. That is OK, I thought. I just won't load the paper, save the image to the micro SD and figure out how to get the right photo to print later. Nope. The camera won't take a photo without the paper. Clearly this wasn't right. I go to Canon's support page. Nope. You can't take a picture with no paper. OK, this can be fixed in a firmware update I am sure. I'll download the software and see what the firmware update process is like. Hmmm? No software for the camera. I am now assuming no firmware updates either. So I have a camera with a SD slot that won't take pictures without "film" being in this digital camera. A 5 megapixel camera? You honestly could buy a cheap cell phone and have similar results. I am not sure who this camera is for nor why it exists in this format. Buying just the IVY printer and using your phone will give better results and known results. Honestly I can't recommend this camera in any sense of the word. It might be more tolerable if the paper was cheaper and affordable, less than 10 cents a sheet seems about a right price point. But for the gamble of taking a good pic and no way of editing the picture before print and the hassle of having to have extra paper available if you are taking a lot of shots... I'll stick to my cell for everyday shots and break out the DSLR for special moments or projects. For the life of me, I don't know who the target consumer is for this camera. The prints are so small that older people won't be able to see them. The price per shot is too high for most people sub 30 years old to find affordable. The inability to just take a digital picture is a waste. The beauty of digital photography is the ability to correct a picture before publishing or printing. This works against the grain of the advantages of digital photography. For less than 10 cents an image, I can select the photos I want printed and pick them up in an hour or have them shipped to me. Or I can wait 30 seconds to get a picture I am not sure of with cousin Jimmy and his stray finger. Good: - It is yellow??? - It has a strap - It is lightweight - The pictures can be used as stickers (can you hear my eyes roll as I typed that? @@@@@@@ Bad: - Requires paper to take pictures - The paper is about 50 cents a sheet (same complaint for IVY printer) - Can not preview what is being printed - No software - No app - No Bluetooth - Might have been cool 30 years ago - 2x3 format - 5 Megapixel
