Fujifilm INSTAX MINI 12 Adds Parallax Correction in Close Up Mode and Automatic Flash Control

Two years after the INSTAX MINI 11, Fujifilm has updated its popular film instant camera with the INSTAX MINI 12. Even though Fujifilm claims a new “airy, cloud-like, and almost inflated design/look,” the overall form and shape basically remains the same, which is not a bad thing.

The INSTAX MINI 12 adds parallax correction capabilities, automatic flash control and a multi-function twist lens. The Parallax Correction feature aligns the viewfinder with the lens in Close-Up Mode to minimize object shifts. Automatic flash control optimizes image quality in bright or low light situations. The lens now twists to power on/off the camera and to conveniently access the Close-Up Mode.

A free, downloadable INSTAX UP! Smartphone App allows you to digitally scan, import, organize, and store your INSTAX photos in one place, regardless of which INSTAX instant film, camera or printer product you use. You can scan your INSTAX photos and store them digitally in one place, organize them by category/list views, share thems via social media or text, and import photos from other INSTAX Apps (the INSTAX MINI LINK App or the INSTAX LINK WIDE App) into the INSTAX Up! App.

The FUJIFILM INSTAX MINI 12 instant camera will be available in Blossom Pink, Mint Green, Clay White, Lilac Purple, and Pastel Blue in or around mid-March, 2023 at a MSRP of $79.95 USD and $99.99 CAD.
