It’s not just about printing photos on the spot with the instax mini LiPlay. Here are the other exciting features that this instant shooter has to offer:
1. It has an LCD monitor
You can review the photos you captured via the 2.7-inch LCD monitor of the instax mini LiPlay. Choose which photos get printed and which ones get saved to for browsing some other time.
2. It can add sound to a print photo
With the LiPlay’s Sound function, you can add up to ten second of audio to your print picture. The function converts the audio data into a QR code, which is printed on the film together with your photo.
To play the audio, scan the printed QR code with your smartphone’s camera or QR code reader.
3. The microSD support allows saving of pics
The instax mini LiPlay has a dedicated slot for microSD, where you can save your photos so you can still review them later before printing. Plus, you can keep the ones that are not printed in your hard drive or computer.
4. It allows printing from a smartphone
This instant camera comes with a Direct Print function, which transfers an image taken with your smartphone to the LiPlay. Once transferred, you can now print that picture on an instax film.
5. It can be controlled by a smartphone
Want to take group photos or selfies? The Remote Shooting feature of the instax mini LiPlay lets you pair the camera with your smartphone via Bluetooth and use the latter to take pictures remotely. This makes it possible for you to stand far from the camera and still control the shutter.
6. Camera settings, filters, frames level up your photo prints
The LiPlay also comes with capabilities to adjust the brightness of the photo based on exposure compensation. There are also six filters (e.g. sepia, monochrome) available to add a splash of creativity to your prints. But that’s not all, this camera also comes with ten pre-installed design frames, which can be added before or after taking the picture.

Aside from its functionalities, the instax mini LiPlay also makes for a very stylish addition to your knock-out ensemble. There are three color variants available: the Stone White offers rough, stone-like surface; the Elegant Black sports an eye-catching embossed finish; and the Blush Gold flaunts a smooth lustrous finish. Metallic accents on the lens ring, buttons, and other parts of the camera give it a more sophisticated look.
