    Yeah because saving a file to your sd card and printing that in your actual printer is too hard.

    Too bad that paper has an expiration date like all film does. Even with proper storage it still has a limited shelf life.

    This seems pretty stupid, but I totally would've loved this thing as a kid.

    My local Printing Shop now does what they call ATM Printouts, which is basically printing on a Plastic Card format.
    Works well for the Government-released COVID-19 Vaccine Certificates they send you after each shot.

    I've seen the feature in several cities now, from different Printing franchises so it shouldn't be an exclusive thing, unless it's an Asian exclusive in which case Fuji Film would not be excluded from its scope.

    If these Printing Shops can find the cartridge for these so-called ATM Prints, I don't see how Fuji's vastly superior supply chain can't package them up for the consumer, especially in 2021.

    This feature is just begging for collectability, and collecting Polaroid-like photos should be left to Polaroid.
    The Fujifilm Instax Mini Card Collectibles is what I want to hear about.

    You are very optimistic in the idea that there will be a world in 20 years.

    109 pounds so this will be a 150$ printer? srs this is just a phone printer and it costs way too much since you cant even run it on switch itself, but need to use your phone... gb printer was affordable and used directly on the device.

    As someone that foolishly let it be known he could fix printers I do have to say that only applies if you too can fix them. If you are paying someone to fix them for you then... debatable.

    Average decent laser colour printer is about 3.4p a photo even if I pay out of the arse for the genuine highest price cartridges, maybe 25p a pop if you go to a shop, dye sublimation (which produces developer grade photos, it being what the average pro photographer will have, as well as people that bought a fad printer-camera combo back before phones took over the camera market) is actually sometimes cheaper* and only gets up there when going to higher sizes, and still way south of the cost of this ( https://www.tescophoto.com/photo-prints.html has some costs there, from 7p a photo for the small ones**). If we are counting continuous ink systems in this (which I can see) then... paper is probably going to be the bigger cost in that one (litre bottles are about £25 a colour, so you might need four. The average cartridge is maybe 8ml, and maybe another 8ml split between the remaining three colours. Refills might make it up to 25ml).

    * https://shop.photomart.co.uk/mitsubishi-cp-d70dw-dye-sublimation-printer.html reckons Cost Per Print (6 x 9") ~29p and the same site offers me a 800 prints 6x9 pack for £69.

    **this is my usual advice to clients looking to print photos. Just have the supermarket or whatever high street shops are left look after it. Buy a small black and white laser printer for whatever concert tickets, ferry tickets, plane tickets, directions or similar you need like that (and I am told most have phones these days, indeed I missed out on a concert for not having one the other year as they tried to go phone only). They are small, they are cheap, they don't get clogged nozzles and often the starter cartridge will be enough to get you through to the point where buying another printer is a contemplation you can have.
