Fujifilm intros instant camera
Fujifilm on Wednesday announced the release of its latest instant-film camera, the Instax Mini 7S. Unlike Polaroid's PoGo digital cameras, which rely on a built-in printer, the Instax Mini 7S uses Fujifilm's Mini Instax 2-inch by 3-inch film. The film has a printed area of 1.8 by 2.4 inches, which is then developed as the finished photo.
Other features of the Instax Mini 7S, which is related to the Mini 7, include an automatic built-in flash and a 1/60-second electronic shutter. An LED exposure indicator shows how many frames are left. The glossy film has a light sensitivity of ISO 800.
The camera itself is priced at $96 in September, with a 10-pack of the Instax Mini film costing $20. [via CNET]
