Uses your iOS-enabled iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad tablet to shoot the image and print the picture to the Canon digital photo printer - easy wireless printing, just connect printer to your wifi network. Includes printer, paper tray, 2"x2" tabletop passport photo cutter, 108 sheet pack of paper/ink print media, power cables, manual & printed Quick Reference Guide. Smarthone/tablet not included.
We’ve created a unique passport photo solution that utilizes your smartphone camera and connects it to a Canon printer for easy and quick passport photos. Using a free app, your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch screen displays an overlay, showing you exactly where to align the subject for a perfect photo every time. Just connect the printer to the same wifi network as your device and you can print pre-formatted, cropped 2x2 inch photos in less than 60 seconds wirelessly from your device.
Most of the setup is already done: the app and printer are ready to go for US passport photos. Our simple, easy-to-follow instructions show you how to connect the printer to your wifi network and it remembers the settings even when turned off and back on. Print directly from the app, no wires and no memory card to deal with. Should you ever want to upgrade and add a camera with a flash (or if your wifi goes down), we’ve preconfigured the printer to also print USA sized passport photos from an SD memory card.
Note: The app disables the flash, so this solution can only be used in areas with ample, bright lighting.
Requires iOS 9.0 or later - works with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch device. Android version coming soon.

Maybe you’ve seen a paper size or paper jam error on your printer. A simple roller cleaning is often all that’s needed!
Start by removing the paper tray. Dust & paper fibers can easily build up on the 3 gray feed rollers located at the front of the printer. We’ve seen great results by just cleaning the rollers with your finger or thumb. You can also use warm soap and water (on a damp rag to clean them as well.Spin the rollers as you wipe them, making sure to wipe the entire surface. Replace the paper cartridge and try a print, chances are you’ll be printing like normal.
And that’s it for our quick tip on getting rid of paper feed errors!
