Digital Camera World Verdict

The wider version of Fujifilm's original Instax Mini Link, this is a great smartphone printer for casual use, with fun and creative ways to customize images by using templates and emojis. There are some great features of this wireless printer – including it's superb QR code functions, although the image quality is lacking and its features aren't nearly as impressive as those available with the original Instax Link Mini. The Link Wide printer is best avoided if you're after professional quality prints to display, but would make a great gift otherwise for photographers who enjoy being creative and like a bit of fun.

The Fujifilm Instax Link Wide smartphone printer is designed to be a wider version of the original Instax Mini Link printer, as well as the square-shaped Instax Share SP-3 printer. This new wide-format smartphone printer 'gets everyone in' and is designed perfectly for printing those larger group selfies.

We were super impressed by the original pocket-sized Instax Mini Link SE, so much so that we gave it a glowing review last year and still recommend it now as one of our top picks for the best portable printers available. Our editor even went as far as to say that the Instax Mini Link is the best photo printer he'd ever bought! This wider Instax model has potential with big shoes to fill.
