Fujifilm’s Instax Mini 90 Gets Announced in the US



A while back, we reported on Fujifilm announced the Instax Mini 90 camera–which is supposed to be targeted at a higher tier of shooters than the regular Instax cameras. Now, they’re announcing it in North America. It adheres to Fujifilm’s infatuation with retro aesthetics. But it also sports some new features such as a double exposure mode and a bulb mode. The lens is a 60mm f12 and they also state that it has a programmable electronic shutter that can shoot at up to 1/400th.

The new INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic will be available nationally in early 2014 with an MSRP of $199.99. INSTAX Mini Film is available now with an MSRP of $19.99. The price is below what we initially were told it would be; but that is still quite pricey for a film camera these days.

Specs are after the jump.

• Stylish and premium body design
