Fujifilm's Instax Share to put fun into phone photo printing with CES debutFujifilm's Instax cameras -- rather odd-looking instant film models -- have turned out to be surprisingly popular, and the company now offers a total of five cameras in its Mini line.
If you own a smart phone chances are you've taken hundreds and hundreds of photos without printing any of them. Fujifilm wants to fix that. This is the Instax Share. Let's take a look. So, this is exactly what it looks like. It's a compact printer. It communicates without your smart phone or tablet via Wi-Fi direct and then you use an app to customize your photos. You can edit them, rotate, crop a little bit, and then just print them out. If you take a photo within Fujifilm's app, then there's another feature called Real-Time and that's the template that post the time and the date and location of where the photo was taken onto the picture itself. It's gonna cost $200 when it comes out in April, but of course once you run out of photo paper you will need to replace that. Each additional pack of photo paper has 20 prints worth and I'm told that it'll cost somewhere between $15 and $20 for an extra bag. It's gonna cost $200 when it comes out in April. Once you run out of photo paper though, you will need to replace that. An extra pack gets you 20 more prints and an extra pack of photo paper will cost somewhere between $15 and $20. I have to say I kind of like this gadget. I think it could be a cool way of getting photos off that hard drive and into the real world. Let me know what you think. I'm Luke Westaway here at CES 2014.
