FUJIFILM Corporation (President: Kenji Sukeno) today announces the launch of the new instant camera instax mini 9 on 28th March 2017. Building on the worldwide success of instax mini 8, instax mini 9 will share the same iconic design and ease of use as its predecessor.

The refreshed range will include a selfie mirror and close-up lens, plus a new high-key mode that enables users to take brighter photos – perfect for portraits. It will retain popular features from mini 8 such as automatic exposure measurement for aperture settings.

The stylish, compact camera is the perfect accessory for parties, festivals, events and days out, allowing users to capture fun, retro prints with a simple point and shoot motion. The instax mini 9 comes in five refreshing, new colours; ‘Flamingo Pink’, ‘Ice Blue’, ‘Cobalt Blue’, ‘Lime Green’ and ‘Smoky White’ designed to appeal to those budding photographers out there with an eye for design and a desire to express their creativity.

Instant Photography has experienced resurgence in recent years and instax has found favor amongst consumers of all ages. One single physical print which captures a one-off moment has become more and more appealing amidst a modern avalanche of highly edited digital shots.
