FUJIFILM INSTAX SHARE SP-2
Analogue formats just won’t die. Years after they’ve been succeeded by better technology things like vinyl, cassette tapes, and yes – even instant film – they are still being religiously by fans. Just because something is old-school doesn’t mean it can’t be paired with modern formats, however.
FujiFilm is one of the companies that has been bridging these two worlds of old tech and new with their their line of Instant printers, the newest of which – the Instax Share SP-2 – has just been announced.
The SP-2 lets users print shots taken on their phone directly onto Fujifilm’s 2 by 3 inch Instax Mini instant film in just 10 seconds, a marked improvement from the 16 second print time of the last model released in 2014. Time isn’t the only meaningful measure of improvement on this thing, however, now it can turn out 320 DPI prints, and offers an impressive array of editing features for you to play around with.
On top of all of that, this thing is only slightly larger than you average smartphone, making it so you can keep this on your desk at home without taking up too much space, or you can pack it out for the day with relative ease.
The printer is slated for a release staring next month, will come with 20 shots of instant film, and will retail for an even $200. [Purchase]
