Is there such a thing as small portable printers which can be plugged into a dslr in order to instantly print a recent foto? Don't laugh I'm a dodo geek

Lots of them... With a choice of liquid inks (inkjet) or dye-sublimation (wax that gets vaporized by a high temp unit, then condenses onto the paper).

And most cameras support "PictBridge" and "DPOF" (the latter is more for marking photos using the camera, then taking the memory card to a printer and the printer reads the marked photos for printing).

I have an old Canon Selphy CP500 (or is it a 510). This is a dye-sub printer, so is easy to transport (I used to ship it and media packets between California and Michigan every year for Christmas). It is PictBridge only -- no slots for memory cards. I also have an older Epson Picture-Mate. These use liquid ink cartridges, so probably not something one would ship via mail or UPS, but does have a carrying handle and a rechargeable battery (so one could run off a few prints on-site without a power outlet). Oh, and does have memory card slots so you can have the printer running images off one card while shooting with another.

All of these produce 4x6" prints (the Canon used to have a paper stock that had post-card backs, print/write note/address/stamp/mail). I believe the Canon could (with accessory paper holders and dye-cartridges) use a longer 4x8" form factor.

{I also have an old CP100, which used 2x3" media, but it had a cable that was dedicated to the Canon G-2}

I'm a scrapbooker and use the Epson PictureMate 225. It prints 4x6 pics but with a computer you can print smaller (2 or more pics per page). I've made wallet size copies of my kids' school pictures pain free! A friend suggested this to me and I love it. Good luck!

$50 Polariod PoGo. This little guy will print small peel-off sticky-back photos for fun. Quality isn't great. No ink to refill but the ZINK papers are kind of expensive. Overall, I'm not really recommending. Just presenting it as an option you may want consider for a small portable printer.

Quick video link of PoGo:

Buy directly from Amazon. Most bad reviews are about bad resellers and iPhone incompatibility.
