The new Instax Mini 11 is here!

So many colors to choose from!

Published

on

Together with the X-T4, Fujifilm unveiled the latest in its popular instant camera model — the instax mini 11!

Redesigned for portability and ease of use, the new mini 11 comes in a fresh look! It’s now thinner, lighter, and has a rounded body design to fit perfectly in every user’s hands.

Additionally, it’s the first to feature an “Automatic Exposure” function. The mini 11 senses the level of ambient light, optimizing the output depending on the condition. This allows you to illuminate your photos — keeping both the subject and the background evenly lit. Say goodbye to washed out faces!

Another feature is Selfie Mode, which lets you take better selfies and closeup shots. To use this mode, you just need to pull out the lens’ edge.

What’s even more exciting is instax’s new film featuring marble-designed frames. There’s “Blue Marble” that comes in the usual mini-format instax film, and “White Marble” that comes with a square-format instax film.

The instax mini 11 is available in five pale colors: Blush Pink, Sky Blue, Charcoal Gray, Ice White, and Lilac Purple. Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.

Fujifilm launches X-T4, promises high performance stills and videos

The ultimate mirrorless camera?

Published

on

Fujifilm unveiled its new flagship — the X-T4. Dubbed as the pinnacle of the X series, the X-T4 vows to deliver the highest performance in both stills and video.

As the new flagship, the X-T4 prides itself on new and improved features to aid creative professionals. For starters, it’s the first model in the X-T series to feature in-body image stabilization. It promises to assist night and action photographers in capturing breathtaking moments. It also helps aspiring videographers to record easily in situations prone to camera shake.

New shutter made faster, quieter, more durable

Additionally, Fujifilm flaunts its newly developed ultra-fast focal plane shutter. It’s touted as the world’s fastest mechanical shutter — capable of 15fps in burst mode and 8fps in a continuous shooting while using live view.

When using the electronic shutter, the X-T4 can handle a 30fps burst shooting. Aside from its quieter shutter noise, Fujifilm promises durability of up to 300,000 actuations.

Furthermore, the X-T4 features ETERNA Bleach Bypass, a new Film Simulation mode using Fujifilm’s unique color reproduction technology. This new simulation produces photos with low saturation and high contrast for a spesh atmosphere.

Improved performance

You can expect X-T4’s performance to be better thanks to its back-illuminated 26.1-megapixel X-Trans CMOS 4 sensor and X-Processor 4 — Fujifilm’s high-speed image processing engine. Now, it has improved Face and Eye AF performance, which can track a subject moving at high speed as fast as 0.02 seconds.

Lastly, it’s equipped with video functions meant for professionals. For instance, it’s capable of recording high-speed video in Full HD. When its In-Body Image Stabilization is combined with Digital Image Stabilization, you should get steadier shots. It’s definitely an essential for those who record videos while walking.

There’s also an Image Stabilization boost mode, which mitigates gentle camera shakes. This means you can get stabilized videos even without a tripod. Moreover, it has functions like Movie Optimized Control, Fix Movie Crop Magnification, Mic Jack setting, and an F-Log View Assist to correct low-saturation and low-contrast.

The Fujifilm X-T4 will retail for PhP 96,990 (body), PhP 119,990 (with 18-55mm kit), and PhP 126,990 (with 16-80mm kit).
