MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 28, 2011 /CNW/ - FUJIFILM Canada Inc. today introduced the Instax Mini 50S, the perfect summertime accessory to capture every moment with beautiful, high quality instant photo prints. The newest addition to the popular Instax family, the Instax Mini 50S uses Instax Mini Instant Film to produce credit card sized photo prints that can be snapped anywhere and developed instantly, for a retro take on sharing memories on-the-spot with friends and family this summer.

Sleek and compact with a shiny black finish, the Instax Mini 50S is feature-packed for creative photo taking, including two shutter release buttons placed on the front and side of the camera for portrait or landscape prints.

"Holding a printed photo in your hands to relive a memory is a different experience than viewing them on a computer screen or cellphone," says Melinda Liberatore, product manager, Imaging Division, FUJIFILM Canada Inc. "In today's digital world, the Instax Mini 50S revives the nostalgia and fun of taking and sharing printed photos that can quickly become treasured keepsakes."
