Singapore - March 2013 - FUJIFILM (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. has announced the launch of a new product line-up for the instax instant film camera – The “instax mini 7S black and white (Panda)” and “instax mini 8 carrying case”.

Since its introduction in 1998, instax first started attracting consumers in China and South Korea; growing to become a lasting fad embraced across Southeast Asia, including Singapore. It has attracted a huge following with its ease and fun of use, and beautiful photo image quality.

With instax, photo taking and sharing becomes a simple joy – you can snap and develop the picture on site, and exclaim over it with family and friends almost immediately – the end product is a soft yet bright picture with unique sentimentality.

As an attractive alternative to today’s common digital cameras and smart phones, and with ever increasing tantalizing options to decorate and personalize the instant photo with various accessories, instax is due to see an expanding following, especially among teenage girls and women in their early 20s.

In response to this growing popularity, Fujifilm is introducing a new instax series and various accessories to the Singapore market.

1. instax mini 7S black and white (Panda)

Noting the nation-wide love generated by Celebrity Pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia, who made their public debut at the Singapore Zoo late last year, Fujifilm has brought in the “instax mini 7S black and white (Panda)” for Panda lovers and to welcome the 2 adorable new residents to Singapore.
