FUJIFILM India launches instant camera “INSTAX mini 12”, price starts Rs. 9,499

FUJIFILM India announces the launch of INSTAX mini 12 (mini 12), a new entry model of the INSTAX series of instant cameras, allowing users to enjoy on-the-spot photo printing. It will be available at retail stores & online partners from 20th April onwards. The mini 12 is an evolved version of the globally popular INSTAX mini 11 (mini 11), and a perfect instant camera for close-up shots and selfies, incorporating functions that make it easier than ever before to capture various scenes.

The mini 12’s balloon-like design expresses the fun packed into the INSTAX, which allows users to produce photo prints on the spot, a unique feature of INSTAX. The lineup of five pastel colors offers a variety of colors to suit each individual’s style.

The mini 12 features the “Automatic Exposure,” a popular function of the predecessor mini 11 launched in May 2020, in which the camera automatically determines the correct exposure for a given scene. Rotating the lens one step activates the “Close-up mode,” perfect for close-up shots and selfiles. This is the first entry-level INSTAX to feature a function that prevents discrepancies between the viewfinder field and the actual printout area in close-ups, allowing anyone to enjoy taking a close-up shot as intended. When taking a selfie, the “Selfie Mirror” beside the lens can be used to check the composition of a finished print while shooting.
