These days with our photos being stored digitally on our smartphones, cameras, memory cards, and in the cloud, and with sharing being mostly done virtually, it doesn’t really come as a surprise that there is a lesser need for physical prints of photos, unless they are for special occasions or for commercial purposes, or maybe you just like it the old school way.
If you do enjoy physical printouts of photos, then you’ll be pleased to learn that Fujifilm has recently taken the wraps off the Instax Share SP-3 photo printer. This is sort of the successor to last year’s Instax SP-2, although as you can clearly tell, Fujifilm has decided to give the printer a bit of a modern design. However putting the design aside, at its core the SP-3 is pretty much the same as its predecessors where users can print photos on the fly
However unlike the SP-2, the SP-3 will print photos in a 1:1 aspect ratio, meaning that your photos will come out in a square, kind of like how Instagram used to be back in the day. The printer will work with smartphones and pair via an accompanying app, but unsurprisingly it will also work with Fujifilm’s X-series of cameras.
The photos printed will be 800 x 800 in terms of resolution and measures 2.4-inches by 2.4-inches in actual physical size. The printer will be good for 160 prints on a single charge, but film will be sold separately where they are priced at $14 for a pack of 10 sheets.
