Images and specs of the Canon ZV-123 – the first of what the company hopes to be the best instant cameras (opens in new tab) – have been leaked, following the successful certification process by the Bureau Veritas agency.
The leak comes from the ever-reliable Japanese leak site Nokishita (opens in new tab) (by way of Mirrorless Rumors (opens in new tab)) and supports the earlier report of Canon's new instant cameras (opens in new tab) to challenge Fujifilm's instax dominance.
The ZV-123 is the "3879C00X: IVY 2in1 instant camera" listed in that report, coming in four colors: gold, white, blue and red. It has a super slim profile, possesses a mirrored lens screen for perfect posing, and uses Canon's Ivy and Zink printing technology.
• Digital photo resolution: 8 million pixels
• Focal length: 25.4 mm
• Maximum aperture: F2.2
• Minimum shooting distance: 30 cm
• ISO sensitivity: Auto (ISO 100-1600)
• Wireless: Bluetooth 4.0
• Battery: Built-in (700 mAh, 7.4 V), USB charging (micro USB)
• Media: micro SD card
• Size: 121 mm (W) x 80.3 mm (H) x 21.5 mm (D)
• Weight: 188g
• Printing technology: ZINK
• Printing resolution: 314 x 600 dpi
• Image sizes: 2 '' x 2 '' or 2 '' x 3 ''
There is no information on the second camera listed in the previous report (opens in new tab), the "3884C00X: IVY instant camera". While the Canon ZV-123 bears the description "IVY 2in1 instant camera", the second model lacks the 2in1 description – it is possible that this means there is no microSD card support, making it a true print-only instant camera.
