Valhalla, NY—Fujifilm North America Corporation expanded its Instax line of instant film cameras with the Instax Wide 300, as well as new color versions of the Instax Mini 8 and the Mini 90 Neo Classic cameras.
The redesigned Wide 300 is an instant film camera that uses large-format Instax instant film and has a contemporary and professional design for better image composition and easier handling. The camera uses an optical viewfinder for image composing, a lens ring dial with a two-range focus zone setting and a tripod socket for enhanced shooting capabilities.
The Wide 300 also features a built-in electronic flash that automatically adjusts light levels depending on the distance to the subject. Users can select fill flash when shooting a subject in a backlight scene, while a lighten-darken control adds high-key and low-key effects to images. Additionally, the Wide 300 includes a close-up lens adapter for macro shooting as close as 15.5 inches from the subject.
The Instax Wide 300 uses Instax Wide instant film that is double the size of Instax Mini film, for prints that measure 62mm x 99mm. It is suited for fashion photography, group shots at parties and events, landscape scenes and such practical business applications as insurance, law enforcement and record keeping.
Fujifilm’s Instax Wide 300 will be available in spring 2015 for $129.99. Instax Wide film is available in a twin pack of 20 prints for $31.99.

The retro-looking premium-build Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic will now be available in a brown and silver finish.
