Fujifilm has unveiled its newest portable smartphone printer: the Instax Mini Link 2 ($100). The handheld device connects directly to your smartphone (via Bluetooth) and allows you to print any photo from your photo library. It basically lets you use your smartphone as one of its separate instant cameras.
The Instax Mini Link 2 isn’t the company’s first portable smartphone printer. It’s a new and improved version of Fujifilm’s Instax Mini Link released in 2019. And while this second-gen version isn’t a game changer – it looks basically the same, functions essentially the same and even uses the same film (Instax Mini format) as its predecessor – Fujifilm has given the Instax Mini Link 2 some noticeable improvements.
The biggest upgrade is that the Instax Mini Link 2 has two new print modes, called Instax Natural and Instax Rich, which give you a better preview of how your final print will look. “Natural” mode is the default mode and does not add additional color saturation or highlights to the print. The “rich” mode, on the other hand, adds those things to really make the impression pop.
As before, the Instax Mini Link 2 works with the company’s Mini Link app (free, and works for iPhone and Android) and lets you perform basic edits to a photo, such as cropping, adjusting exposure or brightness, before printing. You can also add text, sticker or emoji to the print. And it also lets you “print” a video, as it extracts individual frames and prints them one after the other.
The Instax Mini Link 2 is available in three different colors: blue, white or pink. It costs $100, which is pretty reasonable, but the damage will come when purchasing the film. Fujifilm sells a two-pack of Instax Mini films, which cost 10 shots each (or $20 total), for $14.
