Instax Share Printer ReviewMonday, February 02, 2015
This appeals to me for so many reasons. The two most obvious reasons being I love instant film and I love having tangible copies of my photos. When I shoot film I get prints of all my photos made, regardless if I love the photo or not but I rarely ever get my digital photos printed. It's kind of a bummer but it's a hard habit to get into! This changes that, now printing my photos is not only fun but the prints are adorable.
I own a few instax cameras but there are definitely situations they're not meant for. Low light, fast moving subjects, and selfies are all kind of difficult. Lets not forget that it's not the most portable camera. This printer solves all those problems! You can shoot with your phone, if that's your thing, or if you're like me, shoot with your camera and then send the photos to your phone and PRINT!
The quality of the photos is just what you'd expect from instant film. I've noticed the photos are bit less sharp than they appear on my phone, and it has a tendency to print the photos a tad overexposed. It doesn't bother me at all but since it is a consistent "issue" it would be super easy to compensate for those things before printing.
Instax mini film, which is what the printer uses, costs little bit less than a dollar per photo at this time. You need to be a bit choosy with what you print but I guess you really should be with anything you print, right?
Bottom line is that if you're looking to print more of your photos in a unique way, the instax share printer should definitely be something you consider. I love this thing!
Special thanks to Michaels for providing me with the printer!
