While they might be targeted at the different type of users but two products that were launched by Canon in Malaysia recently shared the same core: portability. They come in the form of Canon Mini Photo Printer PV-123 and Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector.
The Mini Photo Printer PV-123 which might seem like an odd release in a world that prefer Instagram posts rather than printed photos. Utilizes Zink Zero Ink technology which is quite common for printers within this segment, it churns out 2-inch x 3-inch photos that also feature peel-and-stick reverse side that allows users to paste those photos on their favorite items.
Equipped with its own battery which allows it to be operated almost anywhere, users are able to print out photos from their device with the printer via Bluetooth. That being said, its battery life is rated at 20 sheets per charge which is not much but then again, the PV-123 is not exactly a normal printer.
Meanwhile, Canon has also recently released its Rayo S1 Mini Projector into our market. Designed for mobile warriors out there, the projector is also equipped with its own battery which is rated at 3800mAh and apparently enough to project presentations or movies up to 120 minutes.
Canon has also stated that its Rayo S1 which weighs around 235 grams has a brightness level of 100 lumens together with projection length of up to 120-inches. Complete with its own 3W speaker and 4GB internal storage as well as support for Wi-Fi, the mini projector runs on Android operating system and can be controlled through its built-in touchpad.
Price-wise, Canon Mini Photo Printer PV-123 can be obtained for RM 499 while Canon Rayo S1 Mini Projector goes for RM 1599. Both products are readily available through Canon Flagship Store on Lazada as well as Canon dealers throughout the country.
