Nice...

Will it be using the same film?

I guess that, in order to develop the print  in 10 seconds, a new film is required. But I'll try to dig up more about it

Good point. Maybe the new film will be backward compatible?
Any idea on a release date?

I don't have a precise date, but the wait should not be that long anymore.

 

If the film has the same size, then let's hope it will be also backward compatible

I'm more interested in this than any lenses or camera bodies atm.

I have a LG Pocket Photo printer, which is cheaper to print on and the actual print size is larger 3" X 2" corner to corner (compared to SP1); however, it is slow to print, and can not print direct from camera, the image has to be copied to tablet/phone first.

It does have a recargable battery, but it can only print about 10 photographs before requiring a re-charge.

 

The print quality of the zero ink paper is ok, but from what i've seen, the SP1 is a little better, however if the SP2 has the following it will be on my list of things to buy (near the top):

 

1:- Direct Printing from camera (I expect this)

2:- Decent battery length (30+ photos)

3- Priced similar to SP1 (competitively to competition)

4 - Film priced competitively (ideally less than 50p a photograph)

5- larger print (not a deal breaker, but would be nice)

but will it work with Fuji-x cameras?
​I can't find confirmation anywhere

 

(Then again I can't find confirmation that the SP1 supports Fuji-x on the SP1 page, you can on the cameras pages though )

It's buried in my X-E2 manual V4.00 (EN p. 123), but connection instructions for Instax printers are there. There is note that says "The area printed is smaller than the area visible in the LCD monitor." Which means there is a mandatory crop and you can't control it. No exposure/color controls. No templates. Good to know it can be done, but I think I'd rather use my phone or iPad to edit before printing.

Crop is 3:4 symmetrically, so you know what you will get.

No exposure control?! Dude, you got a RAW converter build into your camera ;)
