Loading the INSTAX mini Film Pack


Press down the back cover lock 
to open the back cover.

Hold both sides of the fi lm pack, align the 
yellow marks on the camera and the fi lm pack 
as indicated on the INSTAX mini fi lm pack 
instructions, then insert it straight.



Close the back cover until the back 
cover lock clicks into place.

[IMPORTANT] Taking Pictures

Press the power button to turn the camera on.
The fl ash charging lamp on the left of the eyepiece 
starts blinking. (Indicates the fl ash is charging.)
You cannot take a photo while the lamp is blinking.

When the fi lm has been ejected 
(the camera stops making a sound), 
grasp the edge of the fi lm, then take 
it out.



When you have fi nished taking a 
photo, push the lens barrel to turn 
the camera off .


Turn the camera toward the subject, then turn 
the brightness adjustment dial to move to the 
position (




) where the lamp is lit.


Every time you take a photo, the number 
on the fi lm counter decreases from “10” to 
refl ect the number of remaining photos, 
and “0“ is displayed when you have used up 
the fi lm pack.



You can photograph objects close-up, and can photograph yourself using the self-portrait mirror.

Attach the left tab on the back to the left 
of the lens (1), then attach the right tab 
(2) so that it clicks into place.

Hold the camera so that the “O” mark 
in the viewfi nder is on the upper right 
of the center of the subject (see the 
illustration above), then take a photo.

Lift up the right side of the close-up lens 
supporting the left side (1), then detach 
it (2).


•  Do not look through the close-up lens at the sun or other strong light. Blindness or vision problems could result.


•  Do not leave the close-up lens in places exposed to strong sunlight. Personal injury or fi re could result if the lens should 

accidentally concentrate the sunbeams on an object or a person.

• Switch 

off  the camera before you attach/detach the close-up lens.

•  Never turn the close-up lens when you attach/detach it; otherwise, the tabs on the back may be broken.

Hold the camera securely 
keeping 35 cm to 50 cm 
between you and the edge 
of the lens.

Confi rm the composition using 
the self-portrait mirror, then take 
a photo.


•  Use new alkaline batteries of the same brand/type only (AA only).
•  Do not use any batteries other than alkaline batteries.
•  Replace both batteries in the following cases:

- When the red lamp on viewfi nder lights
- When no lamp lights or blinks even though the power is turned on

•  About 100 pictures (roughly 10 packs of INSTAX mini fi lm) can be taken with new batteries.
•  The battery performance may be reduced when it is cold. In this case, warm up the batteries to room temperature 

before using this camera.

•  Use the supplied batteries for validation.


•  Make sure that the batteries are installed before loading the fi lm pack.
•  Avoid direct sunlight when loading the fi lm pack.
•  Do not use any fi lm other than FUJIFILM INSTAX mini fi lm.
•   When you load the fi lm pack, never press the two rectangular holes on the back.

Do not open the back cover until you have used up the fi lm; otherwise, the rest of the fi lm is exposed and turns 
white. The fi lm can no longer be used.

•  Never use a fi lm pack beyond its shelf life; otherwise, it may damage the camera.
•  For details, refer to the instructions and warnings on FUJIFILM INSTAX mini fi lm.

Hold the camera, confi rm the desired composition of the fi nal image, 
then press the shutter button.
•  Keep a distance from the subject of at least 0.6 m. The fl ash has an 

eff ective range of between 0.6 m and 2.7 m.

•  The subject will be out of focus using the regular lens if the 

distance is less than 0.6 m. Use the close-up lens for short-distance 
photography. Using it enables you to photograph the subject 
between 35 cm and 50 cm.

•  In short-distance photography (including photography using the 

provided close-up lens), the center of the subject in the viewfi nder 
will be on the upper right on the actual print.

Caution on holding the camera

•  For horizontal image, hold the camera with the fl ash lampface at the top.
•  Do not take pictures where fl ash photography is forbidden.
•  Be careful so that your fi ngers or the strap do not cover the light sensor, fl ash lampface, fl ash, lens, or fi lm ejection 


•  Do not grasp the lens barrel when positioning the camera; otherwise, the fi nished print may not look as expected.
•  Look into the viewfi nder so that the “O” mark appears in the center.
•  Be careful not to touch the lens surface when you press the shutter button.

This symbol indicates danger, which could result in injury or death. Please follow these instructions.


  Never attempt to take this product apart. There is a danger of an electric shock.

 If this product is dropped or damaged so that the inside is showing, do not touch it. There is danger of an electric shock.
 If the camera or the batteries inside become hot, begin to smoke, make a burning smell or show any sign of unusual condition, 

remove the batteries right away. Use gloves to keep from burning your hands. Not removing batteries could result in burns or fi re.

  Using a fl ash too close to a person’s eyes may for the short term aff ect the eyesight. Take care when taking picture of infants 

and young children.

 If your camera gets wet or if something such as pieces of metal get inside, remove the batteries right away to avoid heat 

buildup or a fi re starting inside the camera.

 Do not use this camera in places where there is fl ammable gas or near open gasoline, benzene, paint thinner or other 

unstable substances which can give off  dangerous vapors. Doing so could result in explosion or fi re.

 Store your camera out of the reach of infants and young children. Failure to do this could result in serious injury. (For 

example, the strap could become wrapped around a child’s neck and cause choking.)

 Never take apart the batteries. Do not subject them to heat, throw them into an open fi re, or attempt to short-circuit them. 

Doing so could result in the batteries exploding or splitting open causing burns or fi re.

 Only use specifi ed batteries in this product.  Use of incorrect type of batteries could cause explosion.  Dispose of used 

batteries according to battery disposal instructions.

 Make sure batteries are stored in a safe, secure place and well out of the reach of any infants, young children or pets. Improper 

storage could result in a child swallowing a battery. (If a child swallows a battery, call a doctor or a hospital right away.)
