A neat little printer
 
On the couple of occasions we've ridden in India we've found ourselves taking photos of the children and then showing them on screen. For xmas I was given a small portable printer which prints photos about 2" by 3". It connects to a camera by cable or to a camera phone with blue tooth. Seems a reaonable alternative to giving out sweets or pens the next time we're away.

Which one..?
 
I've been looking for a small printer for a while, which one is it your talking about?

It's called a Polaroid PoGo and it prints excellent photos. Ideal for the use I mentioned above.

I was looking at those, they seem very good value for money and the media costs are not great, good to hear your comments.

+1. Excellent bit of kit.

It could also be useful for somebody who likes to journal in a notebook or for making your own picture postcards to send home. The youtube videos show the prints with a peel off backing which makes them a sticker.

Canon pixma range for me - 6"x4" prints on a dye sublimation basis so it never fades and is water resistant. I find that you need to print them a lighter than shot on camera. They do a rechargeable battery range too.

Negatives are that they require a specific paper and print ribon which is fairly bulky.
