Technology is great because it allows us to take photos quickly and easily wherever we go with our phones.
In fact, take a look at your phone right now. How many photos do you have? We’re guessing anywhere from 1,000 to more than 10,000.
Now let’s be honest: How many of those photos ever make it from your phone to your hands? And wouldn’t it be nice to have actual photos of your mates, your love and even your pet? How about the amazing cities you’ve seen, the beaches you’ve hit, and the concerts you’ve taken in?
That’s why so many of us love our instax cameras. You get the photo right away! But there are times when you want to take advantage of the portability and power of your smartphone. It’s just a shame the photos are such a pain to print.
Happily, that problem can be fixed easily with the instax SHARE SP-3 printer. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should know it’s small—about 130mm long, 116 mm wide, and 44 mm thick. That’s not too much bigger than your phone. It comes with a micro USB cable for charging and prints photos from your phone or tablet in about 13 seconds.
The neat part is that the photos are 62 by 62 mm squares.
The even neater part is what you can do with the new SHARE app. Of course, you can adjust things like brightness, contrast, and saturation. But you can also have a lot of fun turning a regular photo into a memory with the many templates and filters available.
For starters, you can split an image into two photos and also combine up to four photos into a collage. You can also print photos from your Instagram or Facebook accounts using the Social Media Sources Template, which labels your photo with the date, time, number of likes your photo received, and a bit of text from your post. The Real Time Template, meanwhile, labels your photo with the date, place, weather, temperature, and humidity. Finally, there is a Limited Template, which numbers each print to look like a limited-edition print.
The end result of all of this? You’re not just printing a photo; you’re printing a memory that you can share with others or take with you wherever you go.
