The Fujifilm Instax camera has automatic flash for low-light shooting which optimizes the intensity of luminescence according to distance. It can take anything from 0.2 to 6 seconds to recharge, with a flash charging indicator in red to tell you when it’s ready. There’s also an added button for a fill-in flash mode that allows for backlighting.

Retro-inspired cameras like the Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 are not very common nowadays. It’s not likely to convert people used to digital cameras, but seems like a good option for those who like the novelty of getting their picture immediately after clicking it, especially at big events such as a party or wedding.
