FUJIFILM Instax SHARE SP-2 In keeping with the growing trend of smartphone photography, FUJIFILM has expanded its Instax product line with the new SHARE SP-2 photo printer, which enables you to create high quality, credit card-sized prints from your smartphone.

It delivers a print quality of 800×600 dots and 320 dpi for clean, sharp images. FUJIFILM has launched a free SHARE app for the SP-2 that’s available on the App Store and Google Play.
