Fujifilm Instax Share Printer Turns Your Smartphone Into An Instant Film Camera
Instant film printing can be fun as I reported in my review of the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 “Neo Classic” instant print camera. You click and a print exits the camera. The image develops right before your eyes and, about 60 seconds later, a fully developed image is obtained. It’s like magic and is quicker and easier than saving a digital picture, editing it and printing it.
Now, with the INSTAX SHARE SP-1 Printer, any (iOS or Android) smartphone and tablet can turn into an instant print camera. It acts as its own Wi-Fi Hotspot and you use the Instax Share App to send images from your smartphone or tablet to the SP-1 Printer which will print them on the 2″ x 3″ INSTAX mini film. A Reprint button even lets you print more than 1 copy of a picture: great for parties!
