Many smartphone users take tons of photos and post them on a few favourite social media sites. However, most of us do not end up doing much else with them. Fujifilm is looking to change this with the Instax Share SP-1, their lightweight, portable printer that can turn your smart device into an instant camera.

The Instax Share allows you to print of any photograph that is stored on an iOS or Android device to Fujifilm Instax mini film, giving you a credit-card-sized keepsake in seconds. Fujifilm has also added direct printer compatibility for a few of their mirrorless and compact cameras.

The app that is designed for the printer is one of its most shining features. It offers a variety of filter and template options to touch up or enhance your photographs specifically for printing. Fujifilm’s intelligence filter provides just the right amount of punch and really makes the printed photo pop. The real time template is also an interesting feature that allows you to print the photograph’s location, time and weather conditions right on the picture. One thing that I found very useful was the app’s ability to use photographs from anywhere on your device. I found myself editing and importing photos through Lightroom Mobile for the iPad and printing them as mini keepsakes for friends and family.

Made of a lightweight plastic with a pearl finish, the Instax Share has a minimalist style featuring only a power button, a reprint button, and LED indictors to tell how much film and battery power are left. It is also small enough that it can easily fit into a large purse, messenger bag, or camera bag without becoming a burden, no matter where you take it. The film selection is great, with everything from a classic retro white border to a rainbow border.

The picture quality from the Instax Share is also very impressive and gives sharp images, depending on the initial quality and sharpness of the file. Like most instant film, the photos take about 20 to 30 seconds to appear, with more detail coming out over the 20 minutes following printing.

There is something quite magical about capturing a moment in time then watching the picture appear before your very eyes. Now that magic can come from your smartphone with the Fujifim Instax Share SP-1 printer, allowing you to turn your photos from just a file on a phone to a keepsake to be shared.
