Whether you're a graphic designer who's looking to produce proofs for a client pitch while you're on the road or working remotely – or you simply want to reclaim some space in your home office – the lean and lightweight Canon PIXMA TR150
printer is a great choice. Able to deliver documents and borderless photos up to A4 size, this portable printer can be powered by mains or via an optional battery pack
for a truly mobile solution.
The PIXMA TR150 uses a hybrid ink system that features a pigment black ink with dye-based colours for vivid archival prints. It's quick too, with print speeds of up to 5.5 ipm
(images per minute) in colour and 9 ipm
in black and white. It's also compatible with envelopes and specialty paper, including Canon High Resolution Paper
, Matte Photo Paper
, Double-sided Matte Paper
, Restickable Photo Paper
and Magnetic Photo Paper
All the connections and cables are fixed to one side of the printer, so it's easy to accommodate in tight spaces, and it comes with 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi support
, as well as Wi-Fi Direct so you can continue to print wirelessly without access to an internet router. There's even a 1.44-inch OLED screen, so you can check the connection status, access settings and ink levels directly too.
If your mobile printing needs aren't so demanding, the compact and convenient Canon SELPHY Square QX10
produces vibrant 68x68mm images with a caption-able border, so you can add notes or comments, which would be ideal for creating a mood board
. Useful features include USB charging and Wi-Fi connectivity, with SELPHY ink and paper refill sets enabling you to replace both in one simple step.
