Instax Mini Link blue

Fujifilm have released a new smartphone printer aimed at the social generation. ePHOTOzine went along to the launch event for the Mini Link , where we were able to get hands-on with the device. 


The Mini Link is a compact printer available in 3 colours (white, pink and blue), featuring a motion sensor and several printing modes which adds fun variations to the prints you can make. 

Connecting to your phone via Bluetooth, the printer's motion sensor allows you to print multiple copies of the same photo for friends with a flick of your wrist, while 'Party mode' allows lots of people to send photos to the printer and create a single print from multiple photos. 

The Mini Link weighs only 200g, and also allows you to print frames from a video. More functionality is unlocked with the accompanying app, which allows you to use the printer as a remote control and zoom in/out of captures, making sure everyone's in the frame. 

The Instax Mini Link will be available from 4 October for £109.99. It can be purchased on Amazon along with a 30-pack bundle of film for £135.99.

Instax Mini Link key features: 

 

  • Transfer pictures from a smartphone to the printer with a dedicated app via Bluetooth connection to produce real instax prints - The app allows easy photo adjustments, such as making it larger/smaller, rotating it, applying a filter or adjusting brightness, before printing it out. The printer has fast speed of about 12 seconds per print, supports continuous printing and is capable of printing about 100 pictures per charge.
  • Video Print” function for printing the best frame from video - You can scroll through video frames left to right to choose the best moment for your subject, and print it out.
  • “Match Test” a lighthearted compatibility testing function, which shows the result when the picture appears on the film - This function examines your compatibility with a friend or someone special. The level of compatibility is shown in percentage. It provides a moment of anticipation while you wait for the test result to appear along with the picture on the film. The app has the “Quick diagnosis” mode to check compatibility of people shown in a randomly-selected picture, and the “Precision diagnosis” mode that involves answering some questions in addition to shooting a photo of two people for whom compatibility is to be checked, in order to obtain a result of greater accuracy.
  • “Party Print” function to create single picture with photos sent from multiple people - This function connects up to five smartphones to the app, receives a picture from each of the devices and combines them into one instax print. In the “Surprise Mode,” no one knows what kind of pictures others have chosen and what the final print would look like until the images appear on the print. This generates a sense of excitement when used at a party or other events.
  • Using the printer’s main unit as a remote control - When taking pictures from the printer’s dedicated app on your smartphone, you can use the Link’s main unit to remotely control the camera operation. For example, you can zoom in by facing down the side of the power button at the center, zoom up by facing up, and release the shutter by pressing the power button. Taking a photo with a large group of people is easy with the Link, as it can be used as a remote-controller for your smartphone’s camera. You can print multiple copies of a picture by holding the Link with the printout end pointing down and press the button at the center.
  • Dedicated app designed for intuitive operability - Fujifilm has developed a dedicated app designed for intuitive operability such as swiping up on the smartphone screen to easily transfer a picture to the Link for printing. The app contains a variety of frame designs and allows you to combine up to eight pictures into one image in a Collage layout to produce a unique instax print.
  • Receiving picture data from Fujifilm’s digital cameras to produce prints - Picture data can be directly transferred from the FUJIFILM Camera Remote app to the printer’s app to produce prints.
