The Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 is the third generation of the Instax printers. It offers numerous features, but the most interesting one is the wireless support. It has the ability to connect to smart devices, so you can print instantly from a phone or another mobile device.
The Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 retains its geometric design, which is why it still looks very familiar. The ease of us is another reason to love it. Basically, you just need to download the Instax Share app, which is available for iOS and Android. Since they are two of the most popular mobile platforms, we’re sure most users won’t have difficulty using it. Right after the installation, launch the app and you can select photos, edit, and then print them without the need to plug a cable into the phone because it works wirelessly via Wi-Fi. Design-wise, the printer looks unconventional. The slot is located on the front. Pictures come out of it after you choose to print. There is also a charging icon which blinks when it’s charging. Meanwhile, the 10 dots provide information about the remaining films. Check out the left side if you want to see the reprint button. It serves to print the image which was last sent to the device.
There are a few items included in the box. Aside from the printer itself, you can also find a battery, a charging cable, and a ferrite core. For the record, the printer doesn’t print portrait photos. Instead, the images are square, 62x62mm to be exact. It also supports Bluetooth connectivity for data transmission across devices. This is the reason why you can send images directly from your phone. It can put out 160 prints per charge, which is ideal for those who like to print photos. By the way, the app is compatible with other Instax printers as well. So if you have an older version, you can use it to add text and edit photos before printing. Just head to the Google Play Store to download it.
The app is very powerful because there are many things we can do with it. Here’s a guide to use the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3. First, you have to select a picture. It can be one saved in the Gallery or you can also take one with the built-in camera app. Another idea is to grab a picture from your social media account, like Instagram or Facebook. Right after a picture is selected, a preview will come up to show what the result will look like. If it needs further touch-ups, you can edit using the available filters.
There are many parameters that can be changed, including brightness, contrast, and saturation. Most cameras take rectangular photos, so you need to decide which portion of the picture to be printed on the paper. To make it more attractive, add emojis or text. If everything is done or you’re satisfied with the edit, hit the ‘Connect and Print’ button. The app will begin the scanning process and find the printer to initiate pairing. If it asks for a PIN number, select 1111 or you can also modify it to your liking. Press ok, the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 printer will work shortly after.
