Today there is excellent news: Fujifilm Europe, Photo Imaging Division, has just announced the European launch of its new FUJIFILM instax mini Link 2 Smartphone Printer, which will be available from 22nd June 2022. But now, we don’t want to keep you in suspense any longer and present to you the wide range of new features of the instax mini Link 2:
The focus of the new smartphone printer is to encourage creativity, with customizable frames and image color modes helping to enhance the mood of an image.
An exciting new feature for instax mini Link 2 is instaxAIR™, which takes interactivity and personalization to a new level by allowing the printer to draw ‘in the air’ and apply the effect directly to the print.
Using the free downloadable instax mini Link App, you can add graphics such as bubbles, petals, neon, spray paint or a glitter look onto your prints. Just pick up your instax mini Link 2, press the feature button on the top, and aim the side LED to start the drawing in the air. The result will then appear on the print preview in the app, and when you’re happy with the look, the graphic will appear on the print itself. The special thing about this: a video of the drawing can be recorded, and the moment can be shared as a printable QR code that appears on the print. The QR code can be scanned to watch the video, download it or share it on social media.
To add even more uniqueness to your print, the app includes a variety of design frames that can be placed over the selected image to create an eye-catching image. You can choose between two color modes: instax-Rich mode for deeper, more enhanced colors and instax-Natural mode for a more original look. Smartphone images can also be honed with artistic filters or by adjusting the image’s brightness, contrast, and saturation. Thanks to the print collage, up to eight pictures can be combined into a single image via the app.
The instax mini Link 2 is compatible not only with smartphones but also with the FUJIFILM X-S10 mirrorless digital camera, allowing photographers to send their images directly from the camera to the printer.
And here’s another great news to announce in terms of creativity: to accompany the instax mini Link 2 launch, the new instax mini Spray Art Instant Film will be offered with a colorful rainbow spray design that reflects light. It’s the perfect complement to the instaxAir™ feature or fun on its own, adding extra color to make any special image pop. This film variety will be available across Europe from 22nd June 2022 at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of €9.99.
