Fujifilm unveiled a new sq. version of its Instax film this summer when it released the Instax SQ10 camera, and currently it’s bringing that format to its lineup of little wireless printers. today the company declared the $199 Instax Share SP-3, the third version of the company’s mobile instant film printers since the product was initially released at CES in 2014.
The SP-3 is that the 1st to use the new Instax sq. film, but it otherwise works very like its predecessor, the SP-2 (which prints Instax mini film). That’s for better and for worse. better because the SP-2 worked well — it printed quick (about ten seconds), was simple to use with all sorts of different phones and services (like Facebook or Instagram), and also the print quality was pretty smart — and worse because the app experience is still really rough around the edges.
In addition to the existing collage option, you can currently add text to the prints, but you can’t customise them much beyond color. What you see is pretty much what you get, and many of them frankly seem like unfinished concepts.
The SP-3 will come in black and white, and goes on sale in “early Nov,” according to Fujifilm.
