I’ve seriously had my eye on one of the printers for a while, I was very tempted to grab the SP-1 at the huge price drop right before this printer was announced. I managed to use my friend’s SP-2 during my recent trip to the Bay Area and was convinced that I’d pick one up as soon as it got a bit cheaper. The day arrived much sooner than expected when I found it for $50 off. This printer uses the same battery as the Instax Mini 90S, which has been generally long lasting . The printing quality has increased, images are sharper and the colors look better than the SP-1. I can’t see a huge need to upgrade unless you really like burning through these prints, but it’s worth the few extra bucks if you’re thinking about grabbing one of the printers.
The setup was pretty basic. I didn’t bother reading the instruction manual before I started and managed to do the basic prints without any trouble. The images may be cropped so be sure go through the editing in the Instax app. There are some extra bells and whistles for making a collage or other things, but I prefer to just stick with a single image, the mini film feels too small to handle a mix of images. Well, my opinion may be biased due to bad eyesight.
