From thumbnails a few centimeters wide to the traditional 10 x 15 format, portable photo printers allow you to print your favorite shots almost anywhere. The quality of the prints obtained depends mainly on the technology used. And as always, it is worth paying attention to the cost of refills...





In the portable photo printer market, Fujifilm's Instax are the most often cited for small format prints, while Canon's Selphy have long remained the only ones to offer a high-performance and durable solution in 10 x 15. However, for several months , these two references are shaken up by newcomers with interesting characteristics. Each product ultimately has its advantages and disadvantages, some inherent in the technology used. The undeniable charm of Instax silver paper, which reminds us of the finest hours of instant cameras, contrasts with the precision of models operating by thermal sublimation, which deliver photos that are more faithful to the original shots. Between the two, ZINK printers often rely on a format designed for mobility and a lower cost price. In the end, it is the use you want to make of your prints that will largely dictate the choice of printer, and several key points must be checked so as not to get the wrong model.
