Like old-fashioned books, there’s something gratifyingly nostalgic about holding printed photos. There’s a different connection between you and the image. They offer a fun and immersive way of capturing unassuming views of our world while preserving real, lived-in moments.
Recently, a new development on how we enjoy instant photography has been introduced to the world.
Fujifilm has finally unveiled the first-ever wide-format smartphone printer: the instax Link WIDE, enlivening the experience of physical photographs further.
The Bluetooth-compatible setup lets you enjoy the wonders of instant prints as it enables you to easily print from your own smartphone. The instax Link WIDE is also compatible with the Fujifiilm X-S10 digital camera.
With an on-the-go design, carry it everywhere and capture great moments with your loved ones wherever you are. The device is available in the colors Ash White or Mocha Gray.
The instax WIDE film is twice the size of the instax Mini, about the size of two credit cards side by side. With the landscape-oriented films, which are now available in the new instax WIDE Black design priced at P660, you can easily capture bigger moments filled with more loved ones.
When printing, you can also choose the mode: instax-Rich goes for deep and immersive colors while instax-Natural accentuates the beloved saturated and classic look.
And with its multi-reprint feature, you can also share photos with more people easily.
Make your photographs distinctly yours by adding personal touches with the instax Link WIDE’s expansive array of features.
With the QR Print Mode, you can add a QR code that can: one, hold voice clips to add another layer of excitement to your captured moments; two, you can add hidden messages for friends; three, you can include a location pin to your photos to invite people over; and lastly, you can equip your photos with URL links to drive people over to your personal or business website. There are also editable templates with which you can personalize colors and text in your image. With the Editable Template Print tool, you can easily craft your own template to unleash your creativity.
Meanwhile, the Collage Print feature enables you to print with multiple images so you can tell your story even better and bigger.
Various Stickers are also available. Since the instax Link WIDE app is available on Android and iOS, you have many choices to add to your photos for another touch of fun and personality.
Lastly, there’s Sketch, Edit & Print, a tool that lets you import sketches and calligraphy to add them on your photo to complete the mood. This opens up a world of possibilities where you can express yourself in even bolder ways.
In terms of mileage, a single battery charge will last you around 100 prints so you can make the most out of your moments.
Right in time for the holidays, this is the perfect gift for those looking to preserve significant moments and hold them as physical holders of precious memories.
Another perk of the instax Link WIDE is that it helps business owners connect with customers on another level. Having the photos as mementos and giveaways will let you grow your business while making authentic experiences with people. This works best for cafes and hangout spots as well as intimate events like small weddings and gatherings.
It is available at the Instax flagship stores in Lazada and Shopee, at wonderphotoshop.ph, and at FUJIFILM authorized dealers nationwide. It retails for Php8,999 and it already comes with a free pack of film.
The instax Link WIDE not only lets you take in moments but also shares them. And isn’t that what photos are for, capturing important moments with the people who matter?
