Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2 2020 Detailed Review.

Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2: Smartphone cameras are everywhere these days, and for the most part, people don’t seem to miss their old-fashioned film cameras.

However, there are some times when we all wish we could easily print out that perfect shot from our smartphone camera, and not one of those quick, drugstore upload-and-pickup-later jobs that later fade.

Many of us want a real photo, and an easy way to print it out, directly from our smartphone. This is what the Fujifilm INSTAX SHARE SP-2 poses to solve. 

Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2

Overview

Once upon a time, photos were printed from rolls of film. You could order reprints and photos would be shared with friends and family. Now we share images online.

But the Fujifilm INSTAX SHARE SP-2 makes it possible to quickly and easily print the pictures we take, and we’re not limited to only sharing images online. 

It connects to a smartphone (via USB or WiFi), and credit card-sized images can be printed in as little as ten seconds. It’s portable, versatile, and stylish. Who’s not going to want to look at this on their desk? And it’s so small, it certainly doesn’t need to stay there. 

How It Works 

Charge the Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2 and power it on. Download the INSTAX Share app to your smartphone; either Android or iOS is available.

Go into the settings part of your phone and connect the phone to the printer. It’s a relatively simple process and doesn’t require any extra wires or technical skills – anyone can do this. 

When you’re ready to print your photos from your phone, open the INSTAX Share app, and it will access the albums on your phone. You can choose an image to print or edit. Opting for ‘print’ sends the picture directly to a printer.

Choosing the edit option pulls up an array of editing functions to be used before printing, such as filters and frames. After editing the image and marking it done, then you can print it. 

Printer Specs 

You know how some things are called portable and you think, I’d never actually take this with me anywhere. Not the case here. This printer is small and lightweight – 3 x 5 x 7.5 inches and it weighs only a half-pound.

It’s easy to drop in a bag or grab on the go so you really can print anywhere – there’s a WiFi connection for the smartphone and printer to interact, or a USB cable for printing in places where there’s no WiFi access. 

The printer comes in low-key silver and gold colors. These look like high-end devices, sleek and comfortable to hold and use.

There are buttons that light-up to indicate how much battery power is left, and how much film is left in the camera.

What You Get 

What You Get 

These are not your parents’ Polaroids! The Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2 delivers credit card-sized photos produced with laser technology that actually produces long-lasting chemical changes in the inks, similar to traditional silver-halide photography; this is what keeps images from later fading.

Filters and Fun 

Perhaps the funniest thing about the Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2 is its ability to apply and adjust numerous filters that come included with the app.

There’s a smart filter to automatically make these adjustments for you so that you can get the most from your photos at the simple touch of a button.

The Fujifilm INSTAX Share SP-2 is a fun and versatile tool that – for hobby photographers – is a great choice. At its price, it’s not exactly an inexpensive investment for everyone, but it does offer quite a decent amount of bang for your buck.

Depending on how avid a photographer you are, it can get pricey to keep buying film, but having good quality prints that don’t fade makes it really worthwhile.
