Fujifilm is looking to take back amateur happysnaps on film with their newly released Instax range.The Fujifilm answer to Polaroid cameras, the Instax range produces instant prints with high picture and colour quality. The point-and-shoot cameras come in the amateur shooter Instax Mini 7S model and the commercial grade Instax 210.
The Instax Mini 7S is a simple point-and-shoot cam that provides high quality, instant prints at the push of a button. Using ISO800 films, the camera produces clear pictures at a petite 6.2 x 4.6 cm size that print straight out of the camera. The Mini 7S comes in a white finish on a tiny frame, suited more to the everyday snapper looking for something cute rather than technical.
The Instax 210 is the commercial grade version of the instant camera, using Fujifilm’s Instax Wide Instant Colour Film that provides quick photo prints with vivid colour in a wider format. The camera features an automatically adjusting flash, hi-res retracting lens, close-up lens adapter, a large viewfinder for its small stature and an LCD control panel like most digital cams have. Prints on the wide Instax film come out at 8.6 x 10.8 cm.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S retails at $163.90, while the Instax 210 retails at $176.
