Over a decade ago, I bought my first Instax Mini Camera and it is still working since. It has since travel with me from Singapore to Burma, Thailand and Macau.
Behold the new Instax, which is codenamed the Instax 90 for some reason unknown to me but it offers more controls over exposure than the Polaroid Landcameras that are all the rage on eBay.
First, there is Macro mode, Double Exposure and Bulb Mode. D'uh what's the use of Blub mode? I have no idea. Bulb mode is usually reserved for long exposures and even though this version has a tripod mount (a first for Instax), I won't be giving the thumbs up until I see the results.
Flash Sync has also improved to 1/400 if you so need it though I can't see any reason why you should be shooting action with this camera. Camera batteries are rechargeable, so I hope the warning lights come out real quick if I am ever low on juice as the camera will be totally useless if you can pop in a spare.
Fuji's Instax film is rated at ISO 400, so it's pretty good but contrast and saturation isn't all that great. That said it would be fine way to shoot those giveaway pixs to people where there isn't any avenue for them to print one.
This little baby is going to cost you big time. Slated for release in Japan in Sept at over US$200, you may have to wait a while for it to be released globally.
