Making memories also means capturing candid moments with #nofilter. Holding a physical copy of a photo can feel like uncovering an ancient relic, but sometimes the best way to live in the moment is to forget about sharing it with the world and focus on sharing the memory with the people who helped you make it. Still, sometimes you just have to post it. Lucky, there are products available that can do both.
First up is the HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer. It’s the perfect way to capture memories for a scrapbook or social media page.
