Fujifilm has dropped the new Instax Mini 11. As you might already have guessed by the title, it’s an instant camera and the successor to the Instax Mini 9.
So what does it offer over its predecessor? Well, it looks like the Instax Mini 11 will include many highly requested features. That would include things like auto exposure and a Macro Mode. You will also see an updated design.
Mini 11 overview
One thing that hasn’t changed is that the Instax Mini 11 shoots Instax Mini instant film and uses the same 2 element 60mm lens. However, there are still many things that are different in the updated camera. Let’s take a closer look at what those changes and updates are.
Mini 11 has an updated design
Fujifilm wanted to make the overall design of the camera much rounder and more modern. This also makes the camera slightly slimmer. The camera retains the Selfie mirror at the end of the lense, but now there is a Selfie mode. That mode is activated by pulling out the front of the lens barrel until the Selfie Mode mark is visible. This also works as a Macro Mode by dropping the minimum focus distance to 0.3m.
Also included now is Auto Exposure. The camera can automatically set the shutter speed and flash output based on the level of ambient light. It doesn’t need to use a rudimentary dial, which the Mini 9 did.
Pricing and availability
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 will be available in 5 colors. You will have the option to buy the camera in Sky Blue, Lilac Purple, Ice White, Charcoal Gray or Blush Pink.
These will be out mid-March for $70.
