FUJIFILM INSTAX SHARE SP-1 (SMARTPHONE TO POLAROID PRINTER)



What a cool concept! The ability to print your favourite images from your smartphone in polaroid form. The Fujifilm Instax Share SP-1. Firstly, this thing does not come cheap. When I bought this printer it was retailing in an Australia store called JB Hi-Fi for around $300 but is now selling for $229.
Many of my favourite images are stored on my iPhone 5, so I was really excited by the idea to be able to print them off almost instantly AND in the adorable form of a polaroid. You may be thinking that it would be much cheaper to go into your local department store and print off your images that way and you're right, however I am lazy and will NEVER do this.
I really love the idea of this but a major downside comes at the quality conversion. Do not expect a high quality image to print from the smartphone printer. As you can see above in a few of my printed images, you lose much of the quality from the original image, which is such a bummer given the price of the smartphone printer.
I still love this item though and will continue to use it. If you do not want to spend such a large amount on a smartphone printer but love the idea of polaroids, the Fujifilm Instax mini 8 camera is right up your alley for around $99. I love bringing my polaroid camera to parties and sharing it around with my friends.
Have you tried this product? Please give me your thoughts x
