Fujifilm has launched its hybrid instant camera in India called Instax Mini LiPlay. It combines the features of a digital point-and-shoot camera and an instant printer into a single device. It has an LCD display, a sound record feature and a remote shooting function with the help of the smartphone app. The camera is now available in India at a retail price of Rs. 13,799 and comes in three colors, with different finishes – Blush Gold, Elegant Black and Stone White.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay has a 1/5-inch CMOS sensor with 5-megapixel resolution and AF / 2 aperture. It has an ISO range of 100 to 1,600, built-in memory with support for a microSD card (up to 45 images) and a flash. It has a built-in non-removable battery that claims to provide up to 100 prints per charge. To print images directly from the camera, you need to buy Fujifilm’s Instax Mini Instant Film separately.
Once you’ve shot a few pictures, you can use the built-in frames and filters in Fujifilm Instax Mini Liplay to jazz up your pictures before printing. The SoundCapture feature lets you capture up to 10 seconds of audio with a photo, and when you print it, it prints a QR code on the photo. It can then be scanned with any smartphone to replay the audio message. The Direct Print function lets you communicate with the camera via Wi-Fi and print any photo on your camera roll, making it a portable photo printer like the Instax Share SP-2. You can use LiPlay app for remote shooting.
Commenting on the event, Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India, said, “With this new addition to the Instax range, Fujifilm will continue to improve the world of instant photo systems for on-the-spot photo printing in India.”
“All-in-One Instax LiPlay is designed keeping in mind the ever-changing preferences of Indian youth, providing unique features to cater to the needs of these young customers. At Fujifilm, we are committed to expanding the world of instant photography in India’s growing smartphone market, ”he added.
