Introducing your new travel buddy, the Instax Pal


With domestic and international travel at an all-time high, gear up for the upcoming fall season with a new camera. While there may be tons of action cameras or fancy shutterless cameras out on the market, sometimes the best approach to snapping away is keeping it simple. Like, point and shoot simple.

The Instax Pal is Fujifilm’s newest addition to its Instax camera series. It fits snuggly in the palm of your hand and takes photos with a wide-angle lens to capture all the highlights of your trip. Perfect for traveling, the camera comes in an ergonomic design that features a shutter button right behind the lens to make shooting even simpler. Not to mention the Bluetooth feature that enables remote shooting and transferring photos to your smartphone.

As for specs, the camera features a 1/5-inch CMOS primary color filter image sensor and photo sizes of 2560 x 1920 pixels. Using a MicroSD card, you can store up to 850 photos whereas the internal memory allows for up to 50. It’s also chargeable by USB-C cable and takes up to 250 photos per charge.

Choose from five different colors and protective silicone skins to make the shooting experience even more customizable.

On sale from October 5, the camera is priced at ¥14,300

Am I being cynical, thinking that this will rapidly become the camera of choice for upskirting?

Transfer photos to your phone? Presumably this is for people who have a phone with a USB connector but no camera. Do such phones even exist?

I think its marketed towards kids and can be used with the instax mini printer. I use this printer in my job with the instax app and my smartphone to give customers a neat little souvenir, they love em.

I'm guessing this camera wil link right to the printer without the need for a smartphone.

Parents are gonna be spending a mint on the film!
