Valhalla, NY—Fujifilm North America Corporation will launch its all-new Instax Mini 9 instant film camera in fashionable colors this April. As part of the company’s Instax photography line, the compact Instax camera will feature a selfie mirror and high-key mode. It will also come with an attachable close-up lens.
Scheduled to ship next month, the Mini 9 initially will be available in three trendy colors: flamingo pink, ice blue and lime green. Two additional colors—cobalt blue and smoky white— will then follow in June 2017.
The new Instax camera preserves the ease of use and design features of the existing Instax models while offering new features and enhancements. A key feature of the camera is a front-facing selfie mirror next to the lens, to make taking selfies easier. There is also a close-up lens for capturing photos less than 14 inches from the subject. In addition, a new high-key mode helps users to take brighter photos. This mode is a benefit for shooting party portraits, still life and creative outdoor pictures.
The camera instantly prints credit-card-size photos that can be passed around, viewed and shared. Instax shooters can also get creative and craft personalized gifts, make a collage with images of friends and favorite places or use the Mini 9 photos for creative and decorating projects around the house.
Other features include: a fixed shutter speed of 1/60 second; a 0.37x viewfinder; a brightness adjustment dial; and a built-in flash. The camera works with all Instax Mini film packs, including the latest Instax ISO 800 monochrome film (10 exposures, $9.99) for additional artistic options, as well as Instax Mini rainbow, comic, shiny star, stained glass and candy pop films. Furthermore, two AA-size 1.5V alkaline batteries power the Mini 9.
