As a lover of instant gratification and tangible results, I think the new Fujifilm Instax Share is one of the funnest (wait, that is a word!) and coolest gadgets ever. It’s true, I recently got the Instax Mini 90 and have had the Instax Mini 7S and Fujifilm INSTAX 210 WIDE for years. I love the credit card sized photos they all produce, but don’t often carry the cameras with me. And then there’s the Pivi, which I’ve had since 2010 and still love, but is sadly no longer available.
Perhaps like many of you, most of the pictures I take these days are on my iPhone 5. So when I found out that a printer was being released that wirelessly prints credit card sized photos from my iPhone? I couldn’t resist. I got the Fujifilm Instax Share shipped from Asia. Thankful the batteries were included, I installed them and then downloaded the app, and followed the instructions. It’s easy to set up and use. (The only part that was a bit confusing to me was in between printing photos, sometimes I had to go back and select the Instax wifi.)The printer uses the same type of film as the cameras. And the prints come out of the printer really quickly and take about a minute to fully develop.The only thing I did notice was my photos were a bit blown out compared to what I saw on the screen. Knowing this, I may in the future edit the photos accordingly, or simply choose slightly darker photos to print. Overall though, I am delighted with the results.I am so happy to share this awesome gadget with you. Have questions? Most of them can probably be answered here. Still have questions? Leave them in the comments and I will try and answer them and update this post. UPDATED: Order the Fujifilm Instax Share here.
