Retro-styled Mini 90 takes Fujifilm’s Instax Line Back to the Future

Fujifilm has updated its venerable line of Instax instant film cameras with the ‘Neo Classic’ Mini 90, which takes its styling cues from recent X-series digital cameras like the X100S and X-E1. As well as an updated (or ratherย backdated) design, the Mini 90 includes a lithium-ion battery and features a tripod mount and several shooting modes including a macro focus mode, double exposure and bulb – where the shutter can be held open for very long exposures or creative effects.

Real hipsters use film. (#nofilter)

The Instax Mini 90 is expected to cost around $210 when it becomes available in the US next spring. For more details, head to Fujifilm’s microsite, but be aware that since much of the text is in the form of graphics, you’ll need to be able to read Japanese to get the most out of it.ย

Where do I pre-order?


Well it’s a lot smaller and lighter than my Pentax 67/Polaroid back.


Oh god I just want to smack those hipsters.


It’s retro-styled, so it *must* be good. ๐Ÿ™‚


Great news. The family and I love instant photography and having a bit more control over the camera settings is welcome. Well done Fuji!


Hmmm, “digital photography review” covering an non-digital device. Got any 110 cameras worthy of news? LoL… my bad, was I too critical?

BTW… Wouldn’t it be great to shoot and get the instamatic/polaroid shot in your hands plus have a digital copy for later! Ultimate party/blackmail/candid camera!

It could double as a full time digital camera when no fancy film is put in it and even take photos for facebook without adding all those silly “hip” filters – since it would be what came out of the camera. ๐Ÿ™‚


They look like Debbie Downer.


Is it available in Indian market? If not, when will be?


the only instax mini I might like …


I want to know what type of mushrooms those guys at the research and design lab at FUJIFILM eat for dinner…



You mean drink? ๐Ÿ˜‰


Are you familiar with the term “hipster”?


Hipster Mushrooms… hmmm… sounds like they taste good too…



Looks sweet, actually. May even be usable ๐Ÿ™‚


This is, in my opinion, the only Instax Mini with an acceptable -if not attractive- design. I hope its silver parts are made of some metal, not painted plastic. The price needs to come down a bit, and it will be a success.


All these Instax / polaroid cams are plastic. Not sure these will have metal.
$210 too expensive.


More than the camera price, I’m wondering about the film cost.
For our wedding, my wife had the brilliant idea to get a Polaroid and shoot instant picks for an album to be created at the reception, with picks and messages from our friends.
We got the camera, the One-Stop Plus with flash, for $16 (shipping included), but we had to get the films at Impossible Film, at the price of $2/shot.
~$200 for the camera are fine is the films are cheap.

Seems like fun.

I assume you can download the taken images later if you want to?
Or is that alien to the whole idea?


No (if it’s like the older ones). It’s a film camera, like a mini polaroid. They’re still quite popular in Asia.

Roland Karlsson

Ah! Its an analogue instant camera. DPReview should be more clear regarding that fact in the article. I thought it was a digital camera with a built in printer. That would have been cool.

Thanx for the clarification.

The ad says something about “valve photography”, what is that.
Or do the mean bulb photography?
