The instant camera Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay prints up to ten seconds of audio on photo paper. Apart from that, the smallest and lightest Instax camera so far snaps photos, of course. When sound pressure the camera uses a trick back.
Sound print on photo paper? That works, but the paper does not play the sound file. According to the Fujifilm press release, the Instax Mini LiPlay records up to ten seconds of sound and saves the sound information as a QR code in a corner of the photo paper. If the user scans the code with a smartphone, he can play the sound with it. On top of that, the instant camera works as a printer and can print photos saved via Bluetooth connection on the smartphone.
Smartphone as a remote trigger via Bluetooth
Thanks to Bluetooth, it is also possible to use the smartphone as a remote trigger and to record about group portraits. Among other things for this purpose there is a smartphone app from Fujifilm. A display is also attached to the back of the camera. The LCD screen measures 2.7 inches and can be used, among other things, to select one of six filters and 30 picture frames for the prints. These can also be selected in the smartphone app.
Up to 100 prints per battery charge
The Instax Mini LiPlay contains a rechargeable battery that will deliver up to 100 prints per charge. The camera has three physical shortcut buttons for the preferred functions. Photos are printed in twelve seconds, with the minimum distance for sharp focus being ten inches. The camera will be released in the US on June 14th for $ 160. Price and release date for Germany are still unknown.
