Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 features

The Instax Mini 12 instant camera features two easy-to-use modes. Twist the lens to turn the camera on. Twist again to enter close-up mode (perfect for taking selfies). This camera features a front-facing selfie mirror, automatic flash control, automatic exposure adjustment, and mini-sized 85 mm x 54 mm (2.4″ x 1.8″) instant prints.

Instant cameras are all about capturing the moment as it happens, which is why it’s so important that the process is seamless. Fujifilm works hard to ensure that each new Instax Mini coming out is better than the last.

In the past, we’ve seen improvements to the Instax line with features like new grip shapes and different lighting settings. The 12 goes beyond that to adjust a fundamental part of the Instax Mini: The Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 features parallax correction for close-up mode. Now, when you twist the camera to close-up mode, what you see through the viewfinder is exactly what you’ll capture through the lens.

When you’re taking candid analog photos, precision can be vital in creating the perfect image—especially when it comes to close-ups. For users who take their instant photography seriously, parallax correction in the camera’s viewfinder is a game-changer.

  1. There is something special about a photograph on paper rather than on screen. Most of the images on our phones never get looked at again but a paper photograph on a wall, or in an album on a shelf will be looked at for years to come.

    • Yes, exactly!! Prints and instant prints still feel so special, even when we have smartphones on us at all times.
