Introducing the new instax SHARE SP-3, the first square format instant printer

INSTAX LAUNCHES A SOPHISTICATED ADDITION TO ITS INSTANT PRINTER RANGE

instax announces the launch of the SP-3 SHARE, the first square format printer to join the iconic instax range. The SP-3 will be available from November 17th, and will allow it’s users to print any image from a smart phone or social media onto instax film at the simple click of a button.The SP-3 follows the launch of the hugely popular SQ10 hybrid camera, and square format film, which was introduced to the range in May of this year. The new 1:1 ratio is a firm favourite among photographers, and the social media generation, who have encouraged the rising trend of square photography with their love for the popular social media platform, Instagram*.

Over recent years, the desire for nostalgia has risen, as young people move to take their memories offline and into a physical format to last a lifetime. The SP-3 SHARE is the perfect accessory to do so, as it allows users to select their favour moments from congested camera rolls or the darkest depths of social media, and turn them into something tangible that never fades.

Alongside the SP-3, the dedicated SHARE app has been given an exciting refresh, and now has several new features to make the process even more fun from the selection process right up to seeing the finish product. Users can now print up to 9 images per sheet using the Collage Template feature, or use My Template to print a message in 11 show-stoppings designs. It is also possible to edit the colour, size and darkness of the text, resulting in a trendy, bespoke image.

In addition to Instagram, Facebook* and Weibo*, the app is compatible with Dropbox*, Google Photos* and Flickr*. Users access their chosen social media for storage website directly through the app and select an image saved to that website. This makes it easy for users to find photos that they like, giving them more options.

The instax SP-3 comes in black and white, with a sleek multi-side design that exudes high quality, while being compact and lightweight.

The previous product in the instax SHARE series, instax SHARE SP-2 (“SP- 2”) was released in July 2016. Users can send photos from their smartphones using a dedicated app*1 and print them on card-sized instax film quickly and easily
