    Making GOOD Instax Prints

    Now that I have a USBC to SD card dongle

    Eureka!

    Throw out all cameras that use Instax as the lenses are crap and the cameras fail

    Instax Wide printer and film is 15% more than Mini. Use a Wide Printer

    USBC works very good, I use iPad 6 and load any pic into the device

    Then wirelessly print to a Wide Printer https://www.fujifilm.com/us/en/consu...nters/linkwide


    Here is a lousy copy of a copy of a copy Instax wide


    Today I will be shooting my Hell-o=Ween image with 3 packs of Fuji FP100C if it still works

    I exposed my last two Fuji pack film loads a month ago and they were both shot.

    Here's a camera that uses Instax Wide, can mount the finest lenses, focus and compose accurately and is extremely fast and reliable. A real crowd-pleaser wherever it goes.

    Seems like their marketing dept certainly know what they do - make consumers pay 3 times for essentially the same thing.
    Start with mini - saturate the market
    Repeat with square
    Repeat with wide

    I use the Instax app on an inexpensive Samsung Android tablet tethered to my desktop PC, same idea.

    I have 3 cheap INSTAX cameras

    Their problem is special battery, that nobody sells, it must be 1400 watt

    My 2 current INSTAX printers are rechargeable, they work fine

    There is no spacer on my modified Crowns. The new back that I fabricated centers the Instax and provides the required setback. it is a joy to use and demonstrate.
