Instant cameras have their own particular market and the Japanese digital camera manufacturer, Fujifilm has unveiled a brand new addition to this segment, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90. Unlike the previous models which were not so great to look at, the Instax Mini 90 manages to incorporate the looks of a retro styled Polaroid (which is a good thing) without cutting back on its features.
Although most of the features of the camera are same as the previous models, there are some improvements as well like a rechargeable li-on battery, bulb mode, macro mode, 1/400/sec shutter speeds etc. The bulb mode allows the user to keep the shutter open for up to 10 seconds to produce some unique photo effects while the macro mode is perfect for taking close up shots. The best thing about this camera is that it uses real film to produce photos.
All the process of capturing and developing the photo happens within the camera itself unlike the old Polaroid models which produced poor quality prints. The Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 will be available for sale in Japan by September and the device is expected to hit the American shores sometime around Spring next year. More details like pricing and the exact date of availability will be announced by the company in the coming weeks.
