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.

Aside from introducing a new larger format Instax camera, Fujifilm is also adding new colors for the rest of its instant film camera family. The Instax Mini 8 will be available in Raspberry and Grape later this spring as well for $99.99. Lastly, Fujifilm is adding a new Mini 90 in a classier shade of leather brown for $199.99.

Fujifilm’s New Mini 90 Neoclassic Is Their New High End Instax Camera

We’ve always known the Fujifilm Instax cameras to be pretty lo-fi and extremely simplistic. But the company is now announcing their brand new Mini 90 Neoclassic–which is a nod to its retro-inspired X series design while also maintaining the Instax love. But this camera is significantly more serious than the previous Instax iterations. This camera has macro mode, double exposure mode, bulb mode for up to 10 second exposures, rechargeable battery, mode buttons on the back of the camera, and the ability to fine tune the flash exposure as well.

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.

It’ll cost around $210 when it hits the US next spring in 2014.
