Hypothetically this could be a Leica branded printer concept, but I’m going to keep that aside for now and focus on this clever idea and its potential. Instant printers are not a new phenomenon, so what makes this Photo Printer different? The prospect of it directly connecting to your phone, acting as a battery backup and a printing machine. I could go a step further and say that it even serves as a memory backup for all the wonderful moments you capture through your phone, but for some odd reason I feel it shouldn’t have this feature.
In my mind, it takes away the charm of printing instantly and that being the only evidence of the magic you created. Back in the days, it worked well – of course you had a negative film that you could take more prints from. In this digital age, I think the phone’s memory will suffice. Let the printer do its job and be your constant companion when you travel and help you take beautiful pictures… always!
