Unlike other instant cameras, Fujifilm’s hybrid instant camera “instax mini LiPlay”, which supports credit-card-size film, has a new “Sound” function to convey a voice message or other audio data in the form of a QR code included in a photo print. The audio can be replayed by scanning the printed QR code with a smartphone and this enables you to put a photo together with your description about the pictured scene. The camera also features the “Direct Print” function, which transfers a photo taken with your smartphone to the LiPlay for printing. A “Remote Shooting” function allows for simple smartphone operation to release the shutter while standing away from the camera itself.

The Instax Mini LiPlay is set to be released on June 14th in three colors (Stone White, Elegant Black, and Blush Gold) with a price tag of $160 USD.
