Citizen has launched the smallest and most portable events printer it has ever produced. At 5.8kg, the Citizen CX-01 might not be a pocket printer - but it sets a new standard for events printers, which are widely used by professional photographers to produce prints to sell at weddings, sporting events, and at leisure venues (such as theme parks).

The Citizen CX-01 is in fact under half the weight of Citizen's best-selling model, and occupies less than half of its footprint. Printing on rolls of 4-inch or 4.5-inch paper, it can print a standard 6x4 inch print in 18 seconds.
