Easy to use and paper is also easy to load. Picture quality is good for a scrap book. My wife loved it!

Fun camera we descent prints

Fun camera with descent prints. I read the reviews so I knew what to expect. Have to be careful not to press the shutter while it is printing or you will get a unwanted picture of the floor. I bought a memory card so I can make a 4x6 print at home. Much better than the 2x3 prints. My friends and family think it is way cool,

Fun camera, prints are small but with a memory card you can make a descent 4x6 print at home or at CVS. Got to be careful not to press the shutter button while your picture is developing because you will get a unwanted photo of the floor. I read the reviews and I am not surprised or disappointed with the camera.

Poor performance and quality

By Len

Date: 2021-12-02

I purchased two of these for gifts in 2020 (one for a 9-year old child, and one for a senior citizen). The color is always poor, often a bluish hue regardless of what type of lighting. One of the cameras quit working after only a few uses. Canon replaced, but the results of the images are so poor, and the paper so expensive for poor results, that they sit on shelves unused. Very sad about it. I have used Canon products (DSLR & multiple lenses) for 17 years.

Fun Product, Terrible Results

By Andy

Camera Quality is awful since it's only 5MP but in addition to that the print quality isn't very good & always super un-calibrated no matter how many times I run the stupid color calibrating sheet you're supposed to run thru it. If the color wasn't constantly & severely off, I would've gave this product a better review. Literally come out looking like umpa lumpas or smurfs. It's always a trade off. I think maybe 1 out 10 photos print correctly. loll

Can you take a picture without the paper, and use the memory card?

The Canon IVY CLIQ cannot take photographs without Zink paper inserted in the camera, and will not take photographs without printing. The newer generations of the IVY CLIQ (CLIQ 2 and CLIQ 2+) have slightly more capabilities for taking pictures without paper. See Canon's FAQ on the IVY CLIQ here: https://bit.ly/3GBIr26

Only 25 shots per battery charge is ridiculous. Will the camera run continuously if supplied with external power? Thanks.
Asked by: John
Unfortunately, there is no AC power adapter designed to power the Canon IVY CLIQ Instant Camera Printer via AC household power. It is only designed to be powered via the built-in battery and charged via the micro USB port.

Can the camera be revived once the built in battery dies? It won't charge. I'm 74 years old and on a limited income so can't afford to send it to Canon for $95 and not knowing if it can even be fixed. Thanks!
Asked by: Barb
No, unfortunately the battery can only be replaced by a Canon service center.
