Imaging technology major Fujifilm has announced its first-ever hybrid instant smart camera – the instax mini LiPlay in India. The camera comes with LCD display screen and wireless connectivity that allows users to print photos directly from their smartphone.
With the LiPlay, consumers can now preview photos captured on the device via the LCD monitor on the back of the camera and choose images they want to print. Apart from this, the camera also has a ’Sound Record’ feature that can be used to record upto 10 seconds of audio, which can then be printed along with the photo in the form of a QR code.
Another feature of the Liplay is the ‘Direct Print’ function which allows users to print any image from their smartphones on an instax mini film. You can also take group photos and there is also a Remote Shooting function available in the Liplay smartphone app that you can use to release the shutter while standing away from the camera itself.
The camera supports a credit-card sized mini film along with a new metallic instax mini film CONFETTI and instax square film Star-illumination, available in two designs, adding a touch of creativity to photos.
According to Fujifilm, the LiPlay’s main unit is the smallest and most lightweight in the history of the instax series. The LiPlay is priced at Rs 13,799.
‘With this new addition to the instax range, Fujifilm will continue to enhance the world of the instant photo system for on-the-spot photo printing in India. The all-in-one instax LiPlay has been designed keeping in mind the ever-changing preferences of the Indian youth, offering unique features to complement the needs of these young customers. At Fujifilm, we are constantly committed towards expanding the world of Instant Photography in India’s growing smartphone market,’ said Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India Pvt. Ltd.
