This morning, Fujifilm is announcing their brand new Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 camera. This is apparently an update of some sort to the Instax Mini 8–and doesn’t do a whole lot with the update but will surely satisfy lots of enthusiasts who simply digg using it. The new Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 camera seems to not only have new colors but also a better (I believe) selfie mirror, high key mode (which is new) and an attachable, close-up lens. Other cameras have had the latter before.
When hits the stores, it’ll be available for $69.95. The company’s press release is after the jump.
Valhalla, N.Y., March 28, 2017 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation announced today that it will launch the all-new INSTAX® Mini 9 in fashionable colors beginning in April. As part of the exciting INSTAX® line, the new compact INSTAX® Mini 9 will feature a selfie mirror, high-key mode and an attachable close-up lens.

The new INSTAX® Mini 9 preserves the ease of use and attractive design features of the existing INSTAX® series while offering new features and enhancements. The new Mini 9 features a front-facing selfie mirror next to the lens, which makes taking selfies even easier. There is also a close-up lens for capturing high quality close-ups, and a new high-key mode that enables users to take brighter photos, perfect at parties, for still life and creative outdoor pictures.
