The new firmware will be available from early July 2014 for the Fujifilm XQ1 premium compact camera and X-M1 and X-A1 APS-C sized sensor interchangeable-lens cameras. Using Fujifilm’s Instax Mini colour film, credit card sized photos can be printed in around 16 seconds on the instax SHARE SP-1 portable printer, along with the option of duplicating copies using the Reprint button. The instax SHARE SP-1 can also be used for printing images taken with smart-phones.

The Fujifilm instax SHARE SP-1 printer will be available as a bundle packaged exclusively for the Australian market,  which includes three 10-sheet packs of Instax mini film, an AC-5V adapter and one set of CR2 batteries for when the printer is used away from mains power. The RRP for the Fujifilm instax Share SP-1 printer bundle is $309. Both the printer and firmware updates will be available in Australia from early July 2014.
