The Canon Zoemini 2 is a pocket-sized portable printer with no ink, no mess, no wires and no waste, for creating small photo prints from your mobile phone.

Digital Camera World Verdict

Less than an inch thick, this is a seriously mobile photo printer that’s easy to slip into a pocket or travel bag. It pairs with your mobile phone or other Android/iOS smart device via Bluetooth and runs on an internal, rechargeable battery. We like that it’s completely self-contained, with photo paper being stored inside and exiting through a slot at the front. The companion Canon Mini Print app is fun to use but ultimately, print quality is good rather than great and the 2x3-inch prints themselves are small but pricey.
