Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 More Sophisticated, Can Print Photos Directly from Instagram

Attractive design

Instax Share SP-3, now in its third iteration, with a futuristic-looking appearance. The plastic exterior is an improvement over the prior two iterations and should be praised for that.

The Instax Share SP-3 isn’t the smallest portable photo printer, therefore it won’t fit in a trouser pocket.

Nonetheless, these measurements are still manageable and won’t need sacrificing too much luggage room on your next trip.

The power button and the reprint button are located on the left and right sides of the body, respectively.

In addition to the battery indication LED lights and the ten small LED lights, you’ll find them at the top of the body, just next to where your prints pop out. 10 This LED light displays how much picture film is left to be used for printing.

The rear of the camera has a button that opens a panel into which you can slide the square Fujifilm Instax film cassette. A new cassette film may be installed in a flash.

The battery compartment is accessible via a cutout on the device’s underside, and charging may be done through a micro-USB connector on the left side.

Now you can print photos on Instagram

Like other portable printers, to print images you must download the Fujifilm InstaxShare program on your smartphone or tablet which is available for iOS and Android.

The Instax Square SP-3 is notable for its ability to print social media images in addition to those stored on smartphones and Fujifilm mirrorless cameras’ internal memory. Social media and cloud storage services like Instagram, Facebook, Google Images, and Dropbox now allow users to print their photos directly from their accounts.

When you print an Instagram picture, the description, the number of likes, and the date and time the photo was submitted to Instagram will appear at the photo’s bottom. To my knowledge, Fujifilm does not provide a way to disable this metadata overlay.

Print photos quickly

To print photos with Instax Share SP-3 also does not take long. One photo print can be produced in less than 13 seconds.

However, like using a Fujifilm Instax instant camera, you still have to wait about 1 to 2 minutes for the photo prints to look perfect.

The results of the photo prints are also satisfactory. Although it can not print in detail the level of sharpness is very good.

At least, if we compare it with other portable photo printers that use ZINK printing technology, Instax Share SP-3 in our opinion is superior with a better level of sharpness and color saturation.

To be creative in the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3 application, there are also a variety of template options, simple photo editing features, color filters, and collage or split printing options.

The battery lasts up to about 160 photos

The battery life of the Instax Share SP-3 is also quite durable. According to Fujifilm, for a single recharge, the battery can be used to print up to 160 photos.

To save battery, if you only leave it for about 1 minute, Instax Share SP-3 will automatically turn off. Recharge the battery can also be done easily via the micro-USB port.

Conclusion Fujifilm Instax Share SP-3

The selling price is in the range of 2.899 million Rupiah and a pack of Instax Square film which is priced at 150 thousand Rupiah is not cheap.
