Digital Camera World Verdict

The new Fujifilm Instax Mini Link 2 portable wireless printer is a successor to the original Mini Link Printer that was released in 2019, but this latest model only has one notable differentiating feature. Incorporating motion control features and allowing users the ability to create light painting effects, InstaxAir is a bit of a hit or miss feature that, while fun for five minutes, lost its appeal pretty quickly. Overall the smartphone printer performs well, but there isn't much appeal to upgrade from the original Instax Mini Link printer.
