HP's portable printer can provide stunning hard copies of your photos anytime, anywhere.

A flexible, portable tripod like the GorillaPod makes tricky-to-get shots—time-lapses, group selfies, birds-eye views—come out with great results.

This is the easiest and fastest way to go from a "real camera" to Instagram.
