Ever since I started blogging 10 years ago I’ve used a camera from Canon. While I’ve had several upgrades throughout the years the brand has always remained the same. My kids are at the ages now where they’ve noticed that mom is always taking photos no matter where we are and they’re starting to ask to have a real camera of their own.
Since kids these days are always snapping selfies as well as capturing memories with their friends (and are also used to that whole instant gratification thing) I thought it was important to make their first camera something that was small enough that it’d be easy to carry around and hold but that had the power to produce quality photos. Bonus if we could also get those photos synced to their phones.
The Canon IVY CLIQ Instant Film Camera does just that and a whole lot more.
The Canon IVY CLIQ is a small, fun and very easy to use instant camera and photo printer in one. Using this camera you can immediately print out a 2×3″ peel-and-stick photo that you can put anywhere (except the furniture, because that is not okay. I said that n my mom voice).
The 2″ selfie mirror makes it optimal for getting the perfect shot of your and your friends right the first time while the ZINK (zero ink) photo paper provides for an awesome quality print-out. BONUS: there is a button on the camera that prints out a copy of the photo you took, so all of your friends can have one too!
Use the microSD Card Slot to save photos for later or use your bluetooth to sync up to the Canon Mini Print app on your smartphone for fun effects, frames, text and stickers.
My kids are loving their first real camera and are excited to play with more of the effects while on an upcoming vacation!
