Fujifilm has introduced a new Instax Wide 300, a larger addition to the company’s camera line that uses large format 86mm x 108mm instant film. Aimed at professional and enthusiast film shooters; Fujifilm claims the Wide 300 will produce larger images suited for fashion photography, group shots at events, landscape scenes, and generally any use that needs a large detailed image.

The Wide 300 comes with all the comforts users expect with an Instax camera including a built-in optical viewfinder, electronic flash, plus 1/64 – 1/200 second shutter speeds. The camera also comes with a 95mm lens that can focus between two ranges at 0.9-3 meters and then three meters to infinity. Alternatively, the Instax Wide 300 comes with a close-up lens adapter for macro shots letting users get up to 15.5 inches away from the subject.

The Instax Wide 300 will be available next spring for $129.99, meanwhile Instax Wide film will come in twin packs of 20 for $31.99.
