In March Fujifilm announced the new Instax Mini 9 instant camera in the US and European markets ‘building on the worldwide success of the Instax Mini 8’.
The new camera includes a selfie mirror and close-up lens (as close as 35cm), plus a new high-key mode that enables users to take brighter photos. It retains Mini 8 features such as automatic exposure measurement for aperture settings.
The Instax Mini 9 comes in five colours; ‘Flamingo Pink’, ‘Ice Blue’, ‘Cobalt Blue’, ‘Lime Green’ and ‘Smoky White’.
The new camera is scheduled for release in Europe and the US in May. (US price US$70.) No local release details were available at time of publication but Fujfilm confirmed it would be available in Australia and New Zealand.
