FUJIFILM Corporation and its President, Kenji Sukeno, today announced the release of INSTAX Mini Link (RRP €120). This sleek instant photo printer will revolutionise how people embrace photography on their smart phones.

Linking to phones via Bluetooth, the nifty printer and dedicated mobile phone app makes it easier than ever to turn photos saved on smartphones into lasting memories. The INSTAX Mini Link is available in Ireland from today and in three attractive colours; dusky pink, ash white and dark denim. 


What sets INSTAX Mini Link apart from other smartphone printers is the fantastic image quality which it delivers. The easy to use printer uses FUJIFILM real film technology to offer unrivalled prints, all of which feature the iconic INSTAX white boarder that the brand is famous for across the globe. In addition to quality prints, INSTAX Mini Link is lightweight for excellent portability. The printer truly is instant with a fast speed of about 12 seconds per print.


Another distinctive feature of INSTAX Mini Link is the simple yet fun app that links smartphones to the printer. With multiple modes and functions there is something to meet every printing need, not to mention, lots of ways to have fun and stay entertained.

Simple Print – shoot with a superimposed INSTAX white frame that gives users a visual reference, so it eliminates any uncertainty of exactly what’s in the picture, ensuring users get the photo they want each time. This intuitive function allows for easy photo adjustments, such as making it larger or smaller, rotating it, applying a filter or adjusting brightness.

Video Print –this cool function allows users to scroll through video frames left to right to choose the most memorable moments. Once selected, all that’s left to do is press the extract button to turn their favourite part video clip into an Instax print. 

Frame Print – The Frame Print feature allows users to pick from 27 different templates to create quirky and show stopping pictures.

Collage Print – this function has four amazing features that are perfect when creating images with friends. The Collage Print feature allows users to combine lots of their favourite photos onto one print.

Party Print – INSTAX Mini Link is all about connecting with friends and family and there is no better way to do that than with a Party Print. This entertaining feature gives users the ability to create one photo with loved ones by connecting up to five smartphones to the app. The app receives a picture from each of the devices and combines them into one INSTAX print. Once smartphones are linked together, users can select the layout of the images, or use ‘surprise mode’ to get a shock! In the “Surprise Mode,” no one knows what kind of pictures others have chosen and what the final print will look like until the images appear on the print.

Match Test – Have hours of fun with the Match Test function, a quirky game that allows the user to check the compatibility of two people in a photo. The app has the “Quick diagnosis” mode to check compatibility of people shown in a picture, and the “Precision diagnosis” mode that involves answering some questions.


When taking pictures from the printer’s dedicated app, users can use INSTAX Mini Link main unit to remotely control the camera operation. For example, they can zoom in and out by tilting the printer in different directions. Printing multiple copies of a picture has never been easier, simply hold the Link with the printout end pointing down and press the button at the centre.

Bring people together for a group shot by using the camera as remote controller for your smartphone’s camera.

INSTAX Mini Link is available now in FUJIFIILM outlets nationwide, RRP €120.00 prices may vary by retailer


Anyone who has attended a wedding in the last few years is probably aware of the huge surge in couples embracing the 'nostalgia' trend on their wedding day. From candy stations (think 10 penny bags), crisp sambos after a couple of hours on the dance floor and the use of photos in quirky and fun ways, it looks like this trend isn't going anywhere. Photos are a great way to introduce a personal touch so we've come up with some creative ways that you can use your Fujifilm INSTAX camera on your Big Day.

Decorate the venue… with pictures of you and your other half

What better way to display your love and affection for your new spouse than to show your guests some gorgeous INSTAX snaps of the two of you? Have someone take them alongside your wedding photos before your guests arrive at the venue. Or you could begin taking them on the run up to the big day, in places that mean the world to you both, such as where you had your first date. You might choose to nestle your photos amongst some flowers as a table centrepiece. You could also use them as an inexpensive alternative to cake toppers.

Individualise your seating chart

INSTAX offers some perfect ways to spruce up a plain old seating chart. Try hanging your guest’s names along a peg line, in order of where they are seated. Then, tell everyone to replace their name tags with a sweet INSTAX snap. Alternatively, take some candid INSTAX photos of your guests at a pre-wedding celebration or engagement party. Then, use the images on a chart to brightly display who is sitting where as they enter the venue. If your bride squad is feeling extra helpful, they could even stick the photos on clips and lay them on tables as personalised place cards.

Get candid at the table

Posed and planned photos are lovely but the best wedding memories will be of you and your guests having the craic. Pass around your INSTAX to your guests during the speeches or meal and ask them to take as many candid photos as they want, and to leave them in a designated spot. Then, have your bride squad on hand to gather these memories to make a photo board to display them, or save them for your unofficial wedding album.

Make a classy selfie booth- INSTAX style

Gather some classic photo-booth props such as hats, masks, boas and novelty glasses. Then set up a table in your venue, displaying the props. Bring a floor length mirror from home- borrow one- and let your guests take some well-earned selfies as the night progresses. Have a pin-board at the ready to display them. These will definitely make for some hilarious memories in years to come.

Let the little ones entertain themselves

Having a kid-friendly wedding is brilliant- but its also a whole other ball game. You can ensure at least an hour of peace from the kids table, if you set up some activities for them to do while the grown-ups make memories. One fab way is to let them take some INSTAX photos and decorate them. Gather some simple arts and crafts like markers, glue and colourful cardboard to mount their photos on and let them go wild.

Let your guests be their own party favour

Each guest will feel individually appreciated when they receive a personalised thank you note after the wedding. This is easy when you have an INSTAX snap of each guest or each couple from the big night. Gather the photos you accumulated in the different ways outlined above and use them as individualised party favours so that your guest will always have a memory of your special day.

You or someone you know will have so much fun using INSTAX on their wedding day- and end up with some beautiful memories to show for it. Try the INSTAX Mini 9 Wedding Gift Set, a gorgeous gift set that is perfect for encouraging wedding guests to participate in the festivities. You could also opt for the INSTAX Wide 300 Wedding Gift Set, making sure all your guests fit in the picture. It has film twice as wide as the Mini and an accompanying close-up lens which expands the range of photo shooting. To capture your big day perfectly, visit INSTAX today.
