Pocket up those memories...
Fujifilm is giving brands a run for their instant camera money as they released their new Instax Mini LIPlay, which prints live photos straight from the source. Releasing in mid-June, the new compact product isn’t too much bigger than a credit card and carries a condensed 5-megapixel camera.
Images can come to life and in the palm of your hands in seconds through the camera’s internal printer, displaying on 3.4 by 2.1-inch paper sheets. The LIPlay stands apart from majority of the instant cameras on the market, as it contains a small LCD screen on the back to choose images for printing.
The new product even lets users connect the camera to an app on their phone, allowing for pictures from smartphone libraries to be printed through the camera. Unlike the style of a Polaroid, photos won’t automatically print after the click of the shutter button, providing a controllable user-friendly experience. In addition to printing pictures from smartphones, the LIPlay app also comes with six color filters and 30 frame options before you even hit the print button.
Being that the camera has strong Bluetooth capability, the LIPlay app also allows users to remotely control their product all from their phone. Fortunately, consumers can also say goodbye to battery anxiety, as the built-in accessory is able to print 100 images before the need for recharging.
If you’re looking to boost your digital scrapbook of memories, Fujifilm’s new release includes the ability to convert up to 10 seconds of audio into a QR code that can print with your pictures and be scanned through your phone. This way, your memories can be seen and heard all at the same time.
The LIPlay bundle pack includes the camera, 40 printer sheets, colorful frames, a compact camera case, and a 32 GB MicroSD card and can be found on our site here.
