Fujifilm’s selfie-loving Instax Mini 70 instant camera gets 3 new shiny colors

Fujifilm is giving the Instax Mini 70 instant camera three new color — Passion Red, Stardust Gold and Midnight Black– which will be available in stores, in mid-June 2016. They will cost $140 – the same as the original Instax Mini 70.

Nothing has changed with the new Instax Mini 70, other than the hue. It retains the more modern look introduced last year. Unlike the retro and bulbous designs of previous models, the Instax Mini 70 has sleek lines and curves (although there’s still somewhat of a throwback feel to the design). In addition to the new colors, it’s also available in blue, yellow, and white.

The Instax Mini series has been a success for Fujifilm, appealing to a younger generation that didn’t grow up with instant cameras. The instant cameras use 2 x 3 film (actual image of 1.8 x 2.4, with room to write below the photo) with an ISO of 800 “that produce sharp clear reproduction for vivid color, natural skin tones and super fine grain instant pictures.” Like Polaroid cameras, you simply frame, shoot, and the photo pops out. Each pack of film (20 exposures) costs $20.

Operation wise, it’s the same as with any Instax camera. With the Instax Mini 70, Fujifilm added an improved viewfinder and a “smart selfie” mode that automatically adjust settings for those ever popular self-portraits. There’s even a tiny mirror in the front to help you frame your mug – an analog front camera, if you will. There’s auto exposure, a built-in flash, and a high-key mode for brighter photos. The Instax Mini 70 uses a 60mm fixed lens with a focusing distance 0.3 meters.

The five Apple iPhone 14 colors.

The new iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro are finally available, and Apple is again offering a selection of storage tiers. The big question is just how much storage do you need on your iPhone 14? Similar to last year, the iPhone 14 series lets you choose as little as 128GB and as much as 1TB. This means that if you want to get a new iPhone, you'll need to pick between 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB options. Bigger isn't always better, nor is it always excessive. Only you know how you use your phone, but here's a quick guide to help you pick which iPhone size is the best option for you.
