Instax loved my review of miniLiPlay and miniLink printer and sent me this new Instax Link Wide Smartphone Printer to test and review the same too. I received the same in Ash White colour and the device is also available in Mocha Gray colours too. By the end of the review time, I wanted that the device shall remain with me due to several points which I will share with you guys here in my blog post.
1. Size of the prints - This device and the wide Instax prints have definitely brought Instax to the normal film prints we used to collect when we were using reel cameras from Kodak and other brands. I still have lots and lots of photos stored in the albums in the postcard size prints (90mm x 130mm). Using this wideLink camera you can print any photo of your choice using the smartphone app in 62mm x 99mm size which looks much better than the smaller Instax prints. The use cases to have these bigger prints can be many as they give you the creative ability to do whatever you want. The pack of 10 instax films is only marginally expensive and retails around R199.
3. Instax App and Filters - Instax always have an exclusive app for all of its printers and this time also launched a new app for both android and iOS platforms named Instax Link Wide app. Now once the app is installed, how the photos need to come all lies in your creativity. From simple photos to getting stickers on the photos to QR codes for secret hidden messages, the use cases for your creativity are numerous. There are editable templates, collage prints, can use stickers and you can even sketch and print your own designs on your photos. This time because bigger sizes do require better colour tones for print, the app also has a mode to showcase rich prints using two modes named rich and natural based on your choice.
I really loved this device due to its bigger photo print size but once you are in this business you need to decide which photo printers you should go for as the price of the device is around R2599 and every film pack will cost around R199. You can also check out if you are in love with normal prints any Canon Selphy printers where the overall cost is half as compared to the Instax device. The style and design factor is amazingly high on this device as compared to any other smartphone printer from other brands. I am sure you will never go wrong making this investment if you are into photo printing for fun and creativity.
I did an unboxing video of the device on my Youtube channel which by your grace is now near 1000 mark subscribers and has more than 250 videos for your viewing pleasure. Thanks to Instax South Africa for sending their amazing products for my review and now I am thinking of putting all of the photos in an album specially dedicated to Instax prints.
