INSTAX Christmas decoration DIY

Only 24 days let until it is Christmastime again! Today, we show you how you can quickly create a unique Christmas decoration with your favorite photos.

For this you will need:

  • 1 glass
  • Water
  • Water beads
  • Mini Christmas decoration
  • 1 floating candle
  • Your favorite Christmas photo
  • Transparent tape if needed

First, put the water beads in a bowl with water and let them swell overnight.

The next day you can print out your Christmas motive with your INSTAX-Square Smartphone Printer like here, or you shoot a new one with your INSTAX camera. If you want to protect it from water, you can try wrapping it in clear tape.

Now take your jar and alternate filling it with a little of the decoration and the water beads. In the middle you put the INSTAX instant picture. When the glass is almost full, fill it up with water – and all at once the water pearls disappear!

Now your INSTAX photo floats in the middle of your great Christmas decoration! You can round off your DIY now, in which you put a floating candle in your glass, so you have conjured up a double eye-catcher.

A few tips: it’s best not to use real candy canes, because they dissolve quickly. Please note that it is possible that the INSTAX instant picture may change if it is in the water for a longer time.

Experience FUJIFILM live at the PHOTOPIA 2022 in Hamburg

October 16th marked the end of the second PHOTOPIA trade show in Hamburg and with it four exciting days where photography enthusiasts and customers could experience FUJIFILM’s products in a unique environment. More than 10,000 visitors were inspired by the setting, built from 350 shipping containers, took part in workshops or learned the art of photography from professionals like our X-Photographers.

The design of the large FUJIFILM booth in particular attracted many visitors, as much awaited them on, in and around the custom-designed shipping containers: in front of a custom-made tape art wall, INSTAX fans could capture the unique photo festival experience with our instant cameras and try out the INSTAX cameras and printers for themselves. A camera rental and cleaning service was also offered to visitors. On a stage directly integrated into the booth, basketball players, break dancers or skateboarders performed regularly, a perfect motif to try out the unique X-cameras for yourself.

The print results from the FUJIFILM onsite printers could also be admired hot off the press, as well as the Printlife exhibition in a container. Take a look at the video to get even more impressions of Photopia 2022!

All in all, it was a highly successful exhibition with many interesting encounters, informative exchanges and, most importantly, a lot of fun. We would like to thank everyone who made this great trade show possible and made it a special experience.

Breath- In harmony with nature for the future of health care

Breath – what is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of it? Nature, the feeling when fresh air flows into the lungs, a clear blue sky and letting your gaze wander to the horizon? Perhaps you feel liberated and weightless the longer you open yourself to the impressions of nature.

In today’s world, this feeling of being free in a natural environment is often becoming harder and harder to achieve. Unfortunately, the health sector is not yet the first place where one would expect a relaxed and calming atmosphere connected to nature. But here it seems even more important to connect with nature on closer inspection.
