Fujifilm is announcing its new Instax mini evo hybrid instant camera. This flagship hybrid instant camera has a host of new features and advanced functions packed into a camera-esque body.

With a hybrid instant camera, users can review the photo taken on the 3-inch LCD screen of the camera before selecting images to print and share on the Instax mini-format film. In fact, along with the new camera, Fujifilm is also launching a new “Stone Gray” mini-format film that has a grey frame accentuated with metallic silver to give a sense of luxury to photos.

 

New features and effects

The new camera is the first Instax camera equipped with a print lever, lens dial and film dial. These allow users to perform analogue operations like choosing shooting effects with the dials and printing by pulling the lever.

The mini Evo comes with ten lens effects including “Soft Focus” and “Light Leak” and ten film effects including “Monochrome” and “Retro.” Combining the two will allow users to create 100 different shooting effects.

There is a dedicated app with a “DIRECT PRINT” function for using the camera as a smartphone printer. The app’s “Remote” function allows remote shooting of pictures away from the camera. Users can also save photos on a smartphone or Instax photo frame with the “Transferred Images” function.

 

Pricing and availability
