But Lifeprint has much bigger aspirations than merely being a photo printer. It also wants to be a social network. So when you print a photo, you can automatically share it with people on the network. Your friends on the network have the choice to instantly print your photo as well.
LifePrint can print instant photos directly from your iPhone, Android phone or GoPro via Bluetooth. It uses Zink film and its thermal printing technology so it does not require ink or toner. In that aspect, LifePrint is very much like Polaroid Zip Instant Mobile Printer. In fact the two mobile printers are nearly the same price. LifePrint is $129 and Polaroid Zip is $129.95. Except that LifePrint can print Apple Live Photos, GIFs, Vines, Instagram videos, and GoPro clips. And you can use the LifePrint app to see these how these printed images move, loop, and rewind.
LifePrint is hoping that social media stars and celebrities with a lot of followers might want to mass-send a HyperPhoto to all their fans with a LifePrint printer to unlock promotional content, similar to the Shazam and RCA Records stunt.
Lifeprint, the company behind the mobile photo printers with embedded augmented reality technology, today announced its second model, which produces larger prints than the original version and offers Wi-Fi connectivity as well.
Like most mobile printers on the market, the Lifeprint prints on Polaroid's ZINK paper, which does away with the need for ink cartridges and comes with an adhesive backside. Inside the app you can add stickers, captions and filters before printing. At more than $1 per photo, the luxury is not cheap, so select your images and videos wisely.
Now this is what I need, for Android. 3x4.5'ish is a brilliant size for super portable printing. Have the Polaroid GL50 which does this size, but bugger Polaroid they don't support it anymore, there isn't even an App anymore for it - bluetooth takes forever for a standard 5mb photo, and there's a size limit - You don't know what it is, the printer just won't print it, after just having waited 7 minutes for the transfer lol.
I used to be a ZINK fan, I have bought two Polaroid ZIP printers, we had a lot of fun. The stickyness is so cool for logbook applications (my daughter and the wife). But, suddenly one of the printer stopped working, and I found that there is not any support for that device; Zero, zero ink, zero support, I had the impression that there is no such a company as Polaroid. Then, I bought a Fujifilm Instax SP-2 printer. The Instax is real instant analog film with silver halides. Now that the SP-3 has been announced with 62 x 62 mm instant film, I'd pick the Instax way. I have the Canon SELPHY, and it is excellent for mobile postcard printing. Instax is extremely popular here and very well supported. Instax photos, since they are real film, are even used by artists for their art-works.
I love all this type of tech - Have a LG zink printer which I (used to) love, the Fuji SP-3, a Polaroid GL50 (1st gen 3x4.5" zink printer), a Lomo'Instant Automat (takes Instax mini). Seriously, the Instax has that intangible, "makes me smile" factor, and I take it Everywhere. But basically judging on any other criteria, Zink beats Instax hands down - Resolvable detail (Instax including the SP-3 has a nasty habit of flattening detail creating helmet hair or crayon trees etc), colour accuracy, size of print, convenience (zink has stickers! Also going on holiday Instax films Really bulk out), the environment (look how much packaging there is per 10 shot cartridge), and cost per print. Saying all that, if Fuji every made a portable printer for Instax Wide, I'd probably be waving my money at them as frantically as the next sucker.
Personal experience - OOC Instax can't compete with a phone's camera for detail and colour reproduction - There's too many "too"'s unless conditions are perfect - Too dark, too bright, too much contrast. When my Instax Mini camera behaves, results are creamy and lush, but they're not real-world colours. The Fuji SP-3 isn't subtle handling colour gradients - eg if dark hair isn't highlighted in a shot, it can get flattened into helmet hair. The LG Zink printer does benefit from experimenting with brightness/saturation/contrast before printing to finesse the final output. And note the brands are different - eg LG with LG paper prints the most neutral, HP Sprocket with HP paper tends to print warmer, Polaroid Zip with Polaroid paper will blow highlights and lose detail (!). Dye sublimation printers seem to get good press - They're bigger than the Zink 2x3" at 2.1x3.5" - My Selphy prints them out that size too - It's a small but noticeable gain up in size from Zink minis.
Dye sub should def. be very very good. My only concern with them is print longevity. Thanks for sharing your experiences about INstanx printer vs camera and the different Zink paper brands. Your Polaroid experience matches mine. Didn't know that LG printed so well though to be clear: I wouldn't expect Fuji Instax being Fuji film to be necessarily color neutral as much as being able to get a whole set of range of color/DR well. My Polaroid experience is what made me skeptical of Zink, but looks like it varies per manufacturer.
Woo learning something new everyday here - did not know they brought out the Plus size of that model, don't think it's hit these shores yet. Bigger is Always better, I like LG but given the choice if buying right now the Sprocket Plus would be top of the list if choosing Zink. However the latest dye sub units promises 15 years if not longer of colour integrity, which probably is on par with Zink - think it's the ones that add the white pass through before the yellow, but do check that out, as my 2 yr old Selphy already promises that longevity. And the dye sub prints are near the same size as the Sprocket Plus's. Have mentioned elsewhere that nearly bought the Polaroid Pop recently for its ability to print out the new bigger c3x4" Zink size, but apparently the android app is a piece of crashing crap and the plastics used might as well be the same as for disposable cutlery, but other 3x4 zink printers will probably be along soon.
Clever gimmick, not sure it's enough to push this over Canon's much better 4x6" Selphy printers (given the better output and much lower print cost) or Fuji's more ubiquitous Instax printers (tho the cost per print and format is pretty similar)... As a promotional tool it's definitely interesting, seems viewing video clips without the AR tie in is still nicer in the long run tho.
Agree with Hachu21, the dye sublimation tech used in the Photobee machine (the same tech as the Canon Selphy, and as is widely reported) produces the best quality prints. There's three Kodak units (two printers and a camera) that use this tech too. Don't agree with rosuna, Zink has it's raison d'etre, and I've had pretty good results with the LG model - Instax appeals to the heart but it ain't all that picture quality wise - A Lot of colour flattening going on if you're not careful both OOC and with the printers (yes even the SP-3) eg if darker hair isn;t highlighted in the shot, it will inevitably turn into a helmet. Saying that, I'd totally buy an Instax Wide printer - Instax is just more oddly "fun".
However, as a printer, the Lifeprint has a lot more appeal to my kids. Its dead-easy to load (slide the lid off and drop in a pack of Lifeprint Photo Paper) and thanks to its use of ZINK technology, there are no ink cartridges to worry about.
The LifePrint printer rethinks the tired idea of a handheld device that spits out overpriced, undersized hard copies with an interesting concept: DIY Augmented Reality, delivered via a tiny photo print.
The Instax Link Wide printer shares much of the look and feel of the Mini Link 2, including a lightweight casing and a central on/off button that lights up and changes color. Unlike the Mini Link 2, which can stand on its own thanks to a flat bottom, the Link Wide comes with a U-shaped stand. Aside from that, the two models are basically the same printer, except that the Mini Link 2 is roughly 3.5 inches wide, and the Link Wide is about 5.6 inches wide.
After selecting a photo in the app, you can rotate or crop it and adjust the saturation, contrast, and brightness. The Canon printing app gives you more control through color adjustments than the Fujifilm apps do, including the ability to change the color and size of the border and to apply a timestamp. If you want to print more than one photo, the app provides you with a few options including a Bookmark Layout (prints images in a skinny row along one side of the photo paper so you can cut it in half and use it as a bookmark), Shuffle Layout (prints a collection of images in a mosaic), and ID Photo (great for printing headshots for official documents such as passports). One nice bonus: The ID Photo option comes preloaded with the most common photo sizes, including passport dimensions, and offers guides to help you make sure the image is in the right place. Most of these options are also available within the printer if you choose to print off an SD card. 041b061a72
