Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay, a hybrid instant camera, was recently launched in India at Rs 13,799. The newly-launched hybrid instant camera is now available for sale in India in three colours, with different finishes - Blush Gold, Elegant Black, and Stone White. It is to be noted that Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay comes with the combined features of a digital point-and-shoot camera and an instant printer. It sports an LCD display, a SoundRecord feature, and a remote shooting function with the help of the smartphone app.
Haruto Iwata, Managing Director, Fujifilm India said, “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,” he added.
Coming to the specifications of Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay, it comes equipped with a 1/5-inch CMOS sensor with a 5-megapixel resolution and an f/2 aperture. It has an ISO range of 100 to 1,600, built-in memory (up to 45 images) with support for a microSD card, and a flash. Also, there’s a built-in non-removable battery that is claimed to deliver up to 100 prints, per charge. However, to print photos directly from the camera, one will have to buy Fujifilm's Instax Mini instant film separately.
According to a report of NDTV’s Gadgets 360, one can use the built-in frames and filters on the Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay to jazz up the photos before taking a print. The SoundCapture feature enables capturing 10 seconds of audio with the photo. While printing, the device prints a QR code in the photo. This can be scanned later with any smartphone to replay the audio message.
The Direct Print function lets us contact to the camera via Wi-Fi and print any photo in camera roll, thereby making it a portable photo printer just like the Instax Share SP-2. One can also use the LiPlay app to perform remote shooting.
