07 Apr Hands-on with the new retro-chic Fujifilm Instax Mini 40
Source: DP Review
We just got our hands on Fujifilm’s new Instax Mini 40 model, a stylish and easy-to-use instant camera that uses the company’s most popular Instax film format: Mini.
Feature and spec-wise, this new model is identical to the Instax Mini 11 that launched just last year; read our full Instax Mini 11 review to learn more. But the Mini 40 is undoubtedly cooler and more retro-chic than its curvy cousin. But that cool factor comes at a slightly higher cost.
Let’s take a closer look at this new model.
The Mini 40’s retro-inspired design, complete with silver detailing and faux black leather, reminds us of the higher-end Instax Mini 90. The textured plastic leatherette provides a pleasing amount of ‘grippyness’. And despite feeling a bit plasticky, nothing about the Mini 40 feels cheap.
Size and weight-wise, the Mini 40 is a match for most other Instax Mini models, which is to say it’s fairly lightweight and compact. However, it is a bit chunkier than the Instax Mini 70, our pick for the best Instax camera in 2021.
The camera is operated in the vertical orientation. The viewfinder may feel a bit small, especially if you’re used to looking through the finder of a modern digital camera, but that’s par for the course with these Instax Mini models.
