Canon Rumors Full Frame Mirrorless Camera Canon Eos R

Nokishita spotted a list of Canon camera SKUs which point to instant cameras, and some might have a built-in printer.

Here’s the list:

  • 3879C001: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Gold)
  • 3879C002: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (White)
  • 3879C003: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Blue)
  • 3879C004: IVY 2in1 Instant Camera (Red)
  • 3884C001: IVY instant camera (green)
  • 3884C002: IVY Instant Camera (Yellow)
  • 3884C003: IVY instant camera (blue)
  • 3884C004: IVY instant camera (red)

The interesting thing here is that Canon mobile printer series have the moniker IVY. This, and the “2in1” denomination, makes us think some of the cameras listed above have a high probability to be instant cameras with a built-in printer, like the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ10
