The Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic surfaced from Fujifilm Japan a month or so ago. The Mini 90 continues a very popular line of instant film cameras from Fuji using Instax Mini film; however, the Mini 90 separates itself with the retro-styling that has won over crowds in Fuji’s X-Series digital cameras.
The Mini 90 also has a few bells and whistles that make it a more advanced instant film camera than what we’ve seen in prior Instax offerings. Several dedicated shooting modes highlight the Mini 90’s key features:
- Double exposure mode – 2 images are produced on 1 film sheet by pressing the shutter twice
- Bulb mode – the shutter remains open while the shutter button is depressed (10 seconds maximum) and a light trail can be photographed
- Macro mode – short-distance photography as close as 30-60cm
- Kids mode – suitable for photographing kids, pets and other fast moving subjects due to a fast shutter speed
- Party mode – the subject and background can be photographed brightly and clearly
Fuji has finally provided an official statement on the camera’s pricing and availability in the US. The Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic will be available in early 2014 with a retail price of $199.99. Check availability here on Amazon.com.
