Instax Wide, Instax, and Instax Square Printers Explained

Gordon Lang posted an Instax printer comparison that might be helpful to some, but it is focused on the wide format. You can read a summary of his comparison below or check out the full review above.

  • All Instax cartridges are self-contained
  • Each pack holds 10 prints
  • The Fujifilm Wide camera was the last wide product 6 years ago
  • Instax, Instax Square, Instax Wide all are the same height
  • The with of Instax is 46mm, Instax Square is 62mm, Instax Wide is 98mm
  • Polaroid I type is 78x78mm so almost the same area
  • Phone controlled printers help you not waste film
  • All of the printers can print directly from the camera
  • Wide has been missing up until now
  • Not much price difference between them
  • Instax SP-3 uses wifi while the other printers use Bluetooth
  • There is no shot counter so check the app to see how many prints you get
  • The printers are rated for 100 shots, but Gordan’s only lasted for 3 packs or about 30 prints
  • It takes about 90 seconds to develop
  • There are now print mode options in the Instax wide of natural (which is the classic Instax style) and rich mode which tones down the contrast
  • Gordon prefers the rich mode
  • Editing options in the printer apps allow for some basic adjustments to be made
  • There are also filter and text options that can be applied before printing
  • You can keep the printer in your hand or bag or whatever
  • You can also add QR codes on your printers for a variety of things like your website, audio clips, or the photo location
  • You can also print multiple photos to the wide format with all of the above features
