These images can also be printed from Fujifilm digital cameras. Images are printed with resolution of 800×800 dots. The printer comes with the proprietary technology named Image Intelligence which may automatically adjust picture brightness along with a rechargeable battery. This can be charged seamlessly through a micro USB port and users may print 160 photographs on every charge. Fujifilm has stated that photographs may be printed out within 13 seconds only and new templates have also been integrated into the SHARE app which includes collages.
The SP-3 app has the ability to print 9 photographs on a single sheet via the Collage Template. You can also use My Template for integrating text into printed photographs. These images can be shared easily on social media prior to printing via the app which is also compatible with Google Photos and Dropbox. The printer comes with white and black color options and will be retailed pan-India. It will also be available on leading e-commerce platforms. The key difference here is that the Instax SHARE SP-3 will not have the conventional 4×6 photograph size. An unlimited number of pictures can be printed and these will be backed up in the phone library as well.
The Head of the Instax division and the Senior Manager, Photo Imaging division, Fujifilm India, Masaki Zenko, stated that our brand new smartphone printers are the ultimate accessory that is perfect for all special occasions, making it a great gift for near and dear ones as well. This accelerates the brand’s mission of sharing love and joy amongst customers. The dedicated SP-3 app will have several new features while enabling selection of the final photograph for printing. The Instax SHARE app can readily access social media accounts of users including Facebook and Instagram. Photographs can be directly printed from these social media accounts. This new printer certainly promises to be a value offering for the rapidly growing number of smartphone users in India.
