Smartphone users can now print the photos they capture on their devices with a new compact printer by Fujifilm.
Fujifilm South Africa has announced the launch of the INSTAX Mini Link, the latest in its line-up of instant printing devices.
The INSTAX Mini Link is a smartphone printer with a variety of functions designed to make on-the-go instant printing possible.
Weighing in at just 200g, the compact palm-top printer is an accessory that can be taken to any location, party or event.
The INSTAX Mini Link creates high-quality INSTAX instant prints from a smartphone camera roll.
Using Bluetooth, the Mini Link app connects a smartphone to the printer including allowing users to enjoy a variety of creative features, with a quick and seamless transfer of images.
The main features of the INSTAX Mini Link include transferring a print in about 12 seconds, supports continuous printing, and is capable of printing about 100 INSTAX prints per charge.
With the Mini Link app, one can scroll through smartphone video frames to find the perfect moment, select the standout shot and then print it.
The Party Print function connects up to five smartphones to the app, combining a selected picture from each device into one INSTAX collage print. An option within this function is Surprise Mode to keep the final image a secret until the print starts developing.
The Link's main unit carries a built-in motion sensor, so when taking pictures from the Mini Link app on a connected smartphone, the printer can be used to remotely control the smartphone camera.
The INSTAX Mini Link smartphone printer will be available in three colours - Dusky Pink, Ash White and Dark Denim.
Fujifilm says the South African release date and retail price of the INSTAX Mini Link will be announced soon.
