Nostalgic Feeling using the KODAK Mini 3 Retro Photo Printer

I have this nostalgic feeling using the KODAK Mini 3 Retro Photo Printer that reminds me of growing up with an instant camera in our household. This photo printer blends technologies by turning your digital photos into something you can actually hold. With it being Christmas time I am instantly brought back to the memories of when there was no shortage of photos taken by our dad.

The KODAK Mini 3 Retro printer prints high-quality images right from your iPhone or Android over Bluetooth. The printer comes with a charging cable that plugs into the built-in USB port for charging the printer. This video is an unboxing of the KODAK Mini 3 Retro Printer Gift Bundle and follows with a demonstration using my Android Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra.

I absolutely love seeing this technology produced at a portable scale so that it can go with you to a party, to a family reunion, or to a holiday special. Although you may not be “present in the moment” you will be creating captured moments on paper to share with others. Your sacrifice will preserve a special moment for others through your eyes.

Using the Photo Printer

Once you unbox the contents of the photo printer you can plug in the included charging cable into a genuine charger adapter and into the printer. This will charge the printer while you take the time to install the KODAK app. You can find the QRCode link to the KODAK app within the user manual as shown in the video. The app will require you to allow certain permissions for it to operate correctly. If you have an Android phone you can follow along as I did in my video. The iPhone permissions may be similar but are managed differently.

Connecting to the Printer via Bluetooth

The app has startup screens as I demonstrate in my video where you can select the proper permissions and connect to the printer via Bluetooth. This will require that you turn on the printer. Note: it shuts down if not used within a certain time. Once you connect you can select your first photo to print.

Choosing Your First Photo

I selected two random photos to print but you may be more methodical in your approach. Make sure there is adequate room around the printer outfeed slot. As the photo prints, ejects it and pulls it back in several times. If any obstruction is in the way this can cause a failed print. The printer prints cyan, magenta, and yellow and coats it with a protective layer. In each step, the photo ejects and is pulls it back into the printer.

Using the Photo Album

I used the photo album to protect the two photos I printed. One was of me and our nephew Luke with a photo bomb of Mrs U Do It at Osteria 545 in Paulsboro, NJ. And the second was with me and Mrs U Do It watching the World Series at Cinder Bar in Clarksboro, NJ. The photos insert nicely into the included photo album to keep your memories safe.

DIY Toilet Repair – Research Before You Buy

DIY toilet repair can be a real hassle so it is best to research before you buy replacement parts. Otherwise, you may be making multiple trips to the hardware store for new replacement parts. Our toilet is not functioning optimally. The fill valve is spraying water against the top of the tank lid, which drips down the back of the tank onto the floor forming a puddle. This was probably […]
