Instax is back with a new printer for your phone which supports wide-format images. It's called the Instax Link Wide and prints images from smartphones via Bluetooth.
Offered in a choice of two colours - white and grey - the rectangular printer is lightweight, portable and offers two printing modes; Instax Rich for warmer tones, and Instax Natural for a more subtle finish. The printer can also connect to the Fujifilm X-S10 mirrorless digital camera to print photos directly from that, too.
The Instax Link Wide retains a lot of the core features seen on the Instax Mini Link, such as filters, text, stickers and icons which can be added to images before printing, the ability to print photos from videos. It's also possible to add QR codes to images which - when scanned - can play sound, link to a web page, add a location or display a message.
All of these features can be accessed via the Instax Link Wide app for iOS and Android.
The Instax Link Wide takes Instax Wide film, which is a much larger format than the Mini film, measuring 108 x 85mm. The device is capable of producing 100 prints on a single battery charge, and starts printing in around 12 seconds, according to parent company Fujifilm.
When is the Instax Link Wide release date?
The Instax Link Wide will hit shelves on 22 October 2021. You’ll be able to pre-order it from later on today, likely from the Fujifilm website.
How much does the Instax Link Wide cost?
It's £129.99/$149.95 for the printer and Instax Wide film is £16.99/$19.99 for a pack of 20.
You can get this from Fujifilm, Amazon and more. This is the same film that the Instax Wide 300 uses. Instax is also releasing a film with a black border, as well greeting cards, magnets and stickers in the wide format.
