THIS CLAS­SI­CALLY STYLED RANGE-TOP­PER IS FU­JI­FILM’S COOLEST IN­STANT CAM­ERA TO DATE

$199.95, FU­JI­FILM.COM.AU DE­SIGN

Iron­i­cally, the at­trac­tive retro styling of the In­stax is more Le­ica-like than the lat­ter’s own in­stant cam­era, and it’s marginally less wide, too. We pre­fer it. But oth­er­wise, th­ese cam­eras have ob­vi­ously sprung from the same pod.

FEA­TURES

With no digital preview, the draw is in the dis­tinctly ana­logue thrill of be­ing pro­vided with an in­stant print, wit­ness­ing it ‘de­velop’ be­fore our eyes and not know­ing what we’ve got un­til it ap­pears. Hap­pily, the prints are dry to the touch.

PER­FOR­MANCE

It’s fast, sim­ple and re­spon­sive. In­stead of an on/off but­ton on the back (as on the Le­ica), there’s a chunky power switch above the lens. This leaves the top plate clear for the shut­ter­re­lease but­ton, avoid­ing any mis­fires or mishaps.

US­ABIL­ITY

A built-in flash and a shooting-mode mon­i­tor to the rear en­able a de­gree of user con­trol. The way the Fu­ji­film’s but­tons are in­set, flush with the back­plate, means fin­ger­nail op­er­a­tion is re­quired, mak­ing it slightly more fid­dly than the Le­ica. RATES Want fuss-free in­stant film prints at a fair price? The Fu­ji­film de­liv­ers this, and looks great too. SLATES The build feels a lit­tle pla­s­ticky, while the viewfinder is smaller than we’d ideally like.
