Instax Link WIDE Officially Announced

We already leaked everything to do with the Instax Link Wide a few days ago and Target even started selling it a few days ago, but it seems today is the official announcement day with shipments starting October 22nd. So if you want one now try Target since they have them on the store shelves (I checked my local and they had them out), but if you can wait until the 22nd B&H Photo / Amazon should have preorders soon. I personally am going to wait until I am shooting more regularly again.
