Fujifilm has introduced a new Instax mini camera that looks like a high-quality film camera, but the Instax Mini Evo takes photos digitally, with just one push of a button the images can then be printed out, as one is used to with instant cameras.
With the Fujifilm Instax Mini Evo, the manufacturer has introduced an interesting instant film camera that has an integrated instant printer so that images can be provided with a filter and then printed out immediately. The design was inspired by analog cameras – the silver housing with black leather cover is strongly reminiscent of classic SLR and rangefinder cameras.
The Fuji Instax Mini camera does not allow manual setting of aperture, light sensitivity, or shutter speed, instead, the control wheels on the top of the camera and around the lens are used to add film and lens effects like filters, while the small lever prints the current photo. The camera can connect to a smartphone via Bluetooth so that it can be controlled remotely.
The associated app can also be used to print photos from the smartphone, while printed photos can be transferred to the smartphone. The Fuji Instax Mini Evo camera hardware is reminiscent of a very old compact camera because Fujifilm uses a 4.9 megapixel CMOS sensor in 1/5 inch format, which only supports light sensitivity up to ISO 1,600. There is also a 28 mm f / 2.0 lens and a shutter that supports shutter speeds from 1/4 to 1 / 8,000 of a second. Around 45 photos can be stored on the internal memory, and the memory can be expanded using a microSD card reader.
