Did you know that instant film cameras are still being made? Fujifilm’s line of Instax cameras has been trying to weather the digital storm, and it’s now releasing a new Instax camera that has a whole lot more style.
FujiFilm Japan has published a site showing off the Instax Mini 90 in all its vintage glory, going hand-in-hand with its popular line of X-series mirrorless cameras. It’s not clear yet how much the device will cost, or even whether it will be available here when it is released on September 20. We hope it is, because it looks quite nifty!
The Mini 90 of course uses Fujifilm Instax film, which is about 2.13-inch x 3.4-inch image. It boasts features such as a macro mode, and double-exposure shooting and bulb mode for up to 10-second exposures.
Their older Instax cameras were not exactly pleasant to look at, so the redesign is indeed a welcome one. Perhaps by including more customisation and a more enticing design, the Instax will garner more interest. Analogue photography is coming back in style — and it might as well have some style of its own to match. [FujiFilm Japan via The Phoblographer]
