When Fujifilm launched their Instax printer a while back, we honestly couldn’t imagine a way that it could be improved or reworked. But Fujifilm has proven us wrong with their announcement of the Share SP-2 printer. The company claims that it has improved WiFi connectivity, quieter operation with a print appearing in 10 seconds as opposed to 16, and an improved app to work in conjunction with it.
But that’s not all.
According to the press release issued today, they’re also offering the new printer in a silver and gold option. Beyond this, much of the new functionality comes with new app itself. You can now apply filters and templates to your photos. Additionally, you’ll have control of the brightness, contrast and saturation of each photo. On top of that, you can form a collage of up to four images on one print. More specs are after the jump.
