New Stylish Colors Also Announced for INSTAX MINI LIPLAY 2-in-1 Hybrid Instant Camera and Smartphone Printer

VALHALLA, N.Y., June 17, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Imaging Division, today announced the newest introduction to the market-leading FUJIFILM INSTAX family of instant cameras with the debut of its highly anticipated FUJIFILM INSTAX WIDE 400 Instant Camera (WIDE 400).  Fujifilm’s INSTAX WIDE Series of instant cameras are the only wide-format instant cameras on the market.  WIDE 400 utilizes INSTAX WIDE instant film for large, wide prints (3.4 x 4.25 inches/86 x 108 cm) and features an updated design including a self-timer, two-range focus modes, automatic exposure, and flash control. Separately, the company also announced several new stylish color options for its INSTAX MINI LIPLAY Hybrid Instant Camera product line (MINI LiPlay), which provides 2-in-1 functionality as both a hybrid instant camera (with both digital and instant camera technologies) and a Smartphone printer.

“When it comes to instant photography, there is a niche segment of our user base dedicated to our wide print options,” said Bing Liem, division president, Imaging Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “They have been very enthusiastic, especially through social media, about the next INSTAX WIDE product introduction. These people like to live large in all they do, so WIDE 400 allows them to take photos that include more background and more room to display their creativity. With the introduction of WIDE 400, we’re excited to offer an instant camera that can capture the user’s larger than life moments.”

WIDE 400 Product Features Include:

Self-Timer Function
WIDE 400 features an easy-to-use self-timer dial that gives the user options for timing photos in two second increments up to 10 seconds.

Automatic Exposure and Flash Control Functions
The Automatic Exposure function, which enables improved print clarity (when compared to the camera’s predecessor, WIDE 300), automatically senses the level of ambient light when the shutter button is pressed and optimizes the shutter speed and flash output accordingly, for photos that are properly exposed regardless of interior or exterior conditions. WIDE 400 also features automatic flash control, which is designed to optimize image quality in bright or low light situations.

Focus Modes and Framing Guides
WIDE 400 features two focus modes accessible by adjusting the lens dial (which also powers the camera on and off), with framing guides for both portrait and landscape shots. Normal Mode is designed for everyday photography in a variety of settings (typically 3-10 feet/0.9 – 3 meters), while Landscape Mode is designed for distances of 3 meters (10 feet) and beyond. For macro photography, WIDE 400 offers an included close-up lens that, when used in WIDE 400’s Standard Mode, is ideal for subjects at a distance of 15-19 inches/40-50 centimeters. The close-up lens also features an integrated selfie mirror.

Camera Angle Adjustment Accessory
WIDE 400 is easy to position on a fixed surface with its included Camera Angle Adjustment accessory. By attaching the accessory to the bottom of the camera, the photographer can choose between two height options to perfectly frame their images.
