Before or after taking your photo, record a sound sequence using the sound button on your camera and then print it as a QR code on your picture. If you scan the code afterwards with your mobile phone, you can listen to the sound recording.
- Remote Shooting: Using the app you can also trigger photos, put the camera in position and via your mobile phone you can now even see the image section and trigger the photo easily via the app.
- Shortcut: The app allows you to select 3 frames as shortcuts. So you can choose your 3 favourite frames and they are saved in the "1", "2", "3" buttons on your camera and you can quickly select them by pressing the three buttons. The app contains a total of 30 different frames.
- Direct Print: You can also send pictures from your mobile phone to the camera via the app and print them as Polaroids.
- Display: In addition, the upper bar of the app always shows you how many pictures are still contained in your film and the current battery status of the camera.
The first step is to charge the camera with the USB charging cable. The camera will only charge when it is turned off, and the end of charging will be signalled when the self-timer light on the camera switches off.
Now you can insert your film by opening the film door with the slider. A yellow mark helps you to insert the film on the correct side. The film cover is then automatically pushed out when the film door is closed. Please note that you insert the film while the camera is switched on, otherwise it will not push out the cover by itself. The dots on the camera's screen will show you how many images of your film you have left.
The camera turns on and off by pressing the on/off button on top of the camera. To turn it on, press and hold the button a little longer. The shutter release button is located in front of the camera, you can even focus by pressing it lightly. Now you can shoot pictures and select the best picture for printing afterwards. Use the select button to choose between different functions such as filters, frames, flash and self-timer.
You can also use the menu button to make exposure corrections and turn the automatic focus on and off.
By pressing the middle button on the screen you will get to your photos and by pressing it repeatedly you can choose between three different views of your pictures. Once you have found an image that you would like to print, you can make final edits, if desired, regarding frames, etc. and then press the print button and select "Print". It takes the camera 12 seconds to print an image and about 2 minutes to finish developing it.
Using the menu settings on the camera, you can select the Bluetooth settings and connect the camera to the "mini LiPlay" app on your mobile phone. Many additional functions await you there, as already described above.
During our test run, the camera could not be switched on again, but after pressing the reset button, it worked perfectly again. It's also positive to note that nothing was lost due to the reset, all the pictures taken were saved.
The camera has an automatic switch-off function that can be set individually in the menu settings. Here you can choose whether it should switch itself off after 5 or 2 minutes or not at all.
