The Instax Mini Evo is the newest hybrid Instax camera launched by Fujifilm. It’s a flagship model of the Instax series of instant cameras that features more advanced functions, operability, print quality, and apps than ever before.
Like other hybrid instant cameras, users can review photos captured on the device via the LCD monitor on the rear panel of the camera and select images they want to print.
The new Instax Mini Evo offers versatile shooting effects that can deliver up to 100 different combinations of effects for Instax shots.
Design & Specifications
The Instax Mini Evo comes with ten lens effects including “Soft Focus” and “Light Leak” as well as ten film effects including “Monochrome” and “Retro”. These two types of effects can be combined freely to create up to 100 different shooting effects, giving users the ability to fully express their emotions.
The new model, designed with a classical and luxurious touch, is the first Instax camera equipped with a print lever, lens dial and film dial allowing users to choose a plethora of shooting effects and print. These dials are designed with attention to the finest details including operation sound offering the joy of creating analog photographic arts to the users.
A ring around the 28mm (equivalent) F2.0 lens can be twisted to switch between ten lens effects: Normal, Vignette, Soft Focus, Blur, Fisheye, Color Shift, Light Leak, Mirror, Double Exposure, and Half-Frame.
Behind the lens is a 1/5-inch CMOS sensor with a resolution of 4.9 MP (or about 2560 x 1920 pixels), ISO range from 100 to 1600, and shutter speed range from 1/4s to 1/8000s.
The camera weighs 285 grams and measures 87 x 122.9 x 36 mm, so it’s approximately twice as heavy as the iPhone 12 or the iPhone 13 Mini.
High-Quality Prints From Any Device
The Instax Mini Evo’s resolution of exposure has been doubled compared to the previous models to achieve greater print quality. The camera offers the “Instax-Rich” mode for rich colors in addition to the “Instax-Natural” mode for softer touch characteristic of Instax prints.
The Mini Evo also works as an Instax printer, meaning you can print out pictures from your smartphone wirelessly using a dedicated app.
The app features the “Direct Print” function for using the Instax Mini Evo as a smartphone printer, “Remote” function for remotely shooting pictures away from the camera, and the “Transferred Images” function for saving a photo (shot with the Instax Mini Evo) in a smartphone as an image decorated with an Instax frame so you can share them as digital Instax snaps.
UAE Comes Out Strongly In Guinness World Records 2023
Guinness, the renowned cataloger of record-breaking events, has released its latest annual, after sifting through 40,000 applications — and the Arab world is heavily featured.
Guinness World Records, the authority on record-breaking global achievements, has just announced its latest release, “Guinness World Records 2023 (GWR2023),” which will be available online and in physical stores across the Arab region from today.
As usual, GWR 2023 features all of the latest achievements from around the world (and space!), with special features and updated graphics to bring the stories to life.
So why the interest in the latest Guinness installment? Well, it turns out the Arab Region is strongly represented in the book, with more than 50 records featured in the new edition, which is no mean feat considering the volume of competition.
“We’ve sifted through nearly 40,000 record applications over the past year to bring you Guinness World Records 2023. People from all walks of life continue to be fascinated by extremes, and we’ve received claims from across the planet – indeed, even from space! This is why I’ve said the new edition is out of this world,” says Craig Glenday, Guinness Editor in Chief.
Of interest to readers of this platform, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates both get to flex their record-breaking muscles.
Saudi Arabia claims the title of “Largest LED Structure and Suspended Ornament” courtesy of the Noor Riyadh Festival, as well as other weird and wonderful titles, including the “Largest Lego Formula 1 Car”, as well as perhaps more prestigious honors, such as “Largest Mirrored Building”, “Largest Clock Face”, “Tallest Lighthouse” and the “Largest Geodesic Dome”.
Not to be outdone, the UAE has claimed several humanitarian record-breaking titles, including the “Longest Video Livestream” (by The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives and pan Arab influencer Hassan Suleiman), the “Largest Donation for Medical Treatment”, and the “Most Awareness Ribbons Made in One Hour”.
On the tech front, the UAE also claims several prestigious firsts, including “First 3D-Printed Laboratory”, while the world-renowned Burj Khalifa hangs on to its title of “World’s Tallest Building”.
