Fujifilm has announced Instax Mini 40, a new retro-looking instant camera. While it looks a whole lot different from last year’s Instax Mini 11, the two cameras have a lot in common – but not the price.
According to pttl.gr, Fujifilm has leaked themselves, posting all of the upcoming Instax Mini 40 on the Instax website site a little early. Expected to be announced on April 7th, it looks like somebody was a little too eager with that publish button. The content has been removed from the Instax website now, although screenshots were captured by the folks at pttl.
Fujifilm has been teasing the camera on Instagram for a few days now, although there’s no word on a price yet. And while the camera might have been covered up in the Instagram post, the photos that temporarily appeared on the Instax website show the new camera from all angles, along with a complete list of specs.
Lomography has today announced a very requested item from the large format film community – the LomoGraflok 4×5 Instant Back. While many large format shooters of the past might have used Polaroids, this new back is the world’s first that lets you shoot Fuji Instax Wide instant film on a 4×5 large format camera.
It costs only $134 while it’s on pre-order, going up to $149 once it goes on general sale. There is a catch, though. They’re not shipping them until April 2021.
Fujifilm has just announced Instax Mini 11, a new instant camera that macro-shooters and selfie-takers could find particularly interesting. It offers close-up capabilities, automatic exposure and some other improvements, so let’s dive into more detail and see what we can expect.
In October 2019, it was announced that some US airports would start using new Computer Tomography (CT) scanners. After a recent warning from Kodak, Fujifilm has also issued an advisory for its customers regarding these changes. The company warns photographers not to expose their unprocessed Instax and other film to new airport scanners. Along with the warning, Fuji also introduces some guidelines for handling film when boarding an airplane, because exposing it to CT and X-Ray scanners will destroy it.
Instant photos are magical. They develop before your eyes. You can share them, gift them, spill water on them, draw on them. The only problem is that most instant cameras are pretty cheap — that’s why I’ve always wanted to hack my medium format camera to take instant photos with shallow depth of field and sharpness. This project was created in collaboration with Eddie Cohen over the course of one weekend.
Fujifilm has announced the latest addition to its instant camera family. The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ20 is coming to replace the Instax Square SQ10, which was released last year. Just like its predecessor, it’s an analog-digital hybrid. But along with other improvements, it packs an interesting innovation for an instant camera: video shooting.
Photos of Fujifilm Instax Square SQ6 leaked a couple of days ago, showing that Fujifilm’s new instant camera looks a lot like Instagram logo. This camera for the new generation of film shooters is now officially launched, ready for preorders and retailing at $130. Let’s take a look at the specs.
