In a digital world, it’s surprising to note that there still is a market to self-developing film cameras. We’re pretty sure you’ve seen a lot of people using them as well. Fuji, as a major player in this field, had continuously been updating their line of Instax cameras to satisfy their loyal hippy consumers. Last October 22 2015, Fujifilm Philippines launched the newest model in their Instax Mini series of cameras, the Instax Mini 70.
The Instax Mini 70 features a new selfie mode, a high-performance flash and improved image quality.

The Instax Mini 70 sports a “Smart Selfie” mode where the camera automatically optimizes the settings for the user plus a small mirror is added at the front of the camera which aims to give you the perfect selfie. After all, it’s not like taking a selfie on your phone where you can keep shooting. It’s for a one click and go feel.
For environments with low light, the Instax Mini 70’s high-performance flash system calculates the brightness of the scene and it automatically adjusts the shutter speed setting. So, you no longer have to worry about getting little black squares where your picture should be.
The Instax Mini 70 features an updated viewfinder with automatic exposure and a high key mode which allows the camera to take brighter photos. It can also be mounted to a tripod to ensure sharp photos. That means less retakes and more memories on your film.
