The instax WIDE 300 delivers larger prints that kids and families love!

If you’ve ever thought “I wish my instant print was bigger” then the instax WIDE 300 is the camera for you! The WIDE 300 takes instax WIDE film, which while the same height as instax mini and square, is much wider! In fact instax WIDE film offers 1.6x the image space of SQUARE film and 2x the image space of instax mini – perfect for BIG family memories.

Capture your memories in prints that are big and great to display on instax WIDE film! 

The instax WIDE 300 is designed for ease of use, making taking great instant photos something anyone in the family can do! With a fully automated exposure system, the camera ensures your shots are well exposed. When the camera recognises that flash is required to light the scene it automatically fires, ensuring great flash shots in low light. Additionally, the camera allows you to manually activate the flash even in bright circumstances to provide fill flash for your subject.

With the on/off switch and shutter release conveniently positioned on the integrated handgrip it is easy to turn the camera on and shoot, even in low light. Additionally, the ergonomic design of the handgrip makes using the camera one-handed a breeze.

The camera features a two zone focusing system (0.9M-3M and 3m-infinity), providing sharper focus for your bigger prints. Switching between the zones requires no fiddling with buttons, as a simple turn of the lens barrel activates the focus switching motor. The camera also comes with a close-up focus lens with integrated selfie mirror, for those WIDE selfies or macro shots!

The bright viewfinder makes for easy framing of your shot, even with a moving subject, such as your kids playing, and the accurate auto exposure helps get great action images. The larger print size really makes these images shine!
