The last product ‘instax SQUARE Film Taylor Swift Edition’ is a pack of 10 sheets designed bearing Taylor Swift’s autograph.
First let’s talk about SHARE Smartphone Printer SP-2, the device can print pictures sent over a wireless LAN in just 10 seconds, the company claims. It can achieve a high print resolution with pixels of 800 x 600 dots and 320 dpi, which according to Fujifilm, “show detailed gradations and the facial expressions of a full-length portrait, character or objects clearly.” Besides, the new laser exposure system enables faster printing with lesser noise.
It is equipped with different filters and templates such as the custom filter, which can adjust the brightness, contrast and saturation of an image or the collage templet, which can combine two to four images in one instax photo. These can be activated using the Instax Share app on your smartphone. The printer has a printing capacity of approx. 100 prints and it has an image size of 62mm x 46mm. The device comes with a charging time of approx. 90 minutes.
Coming to the Instax Square SQ6 Taylor Swift Edition, the instant camera allows users to shoot and print photos on the spot. Designed by Taylor Swift, the special edition model features a gold-coloured newspaper pattern on a black base, reflecting Swift’s latest record-breaking album ‘reputation’. It also has a metallic ring around the lens and her autograph printed on the back. It also includes Taylor Swift original camera strap and film case. The camera in itself is also pretty decent, it comes with a retractable lens and three shooting modes namely, Macro, Normal and Landscape and takes around 90 seconds to develop a film.
