Innovative design allows you to easily and freely carry or store it
The 135 camera instant backs previously developed were not designed for general use. For example, the Speed Magny system introduced by Nikon in the 60s was not only bulky but also heavy. The Instant Magny 35 utilizes lightweight and sturdy engineering plastic and aluminum alloy. The use of these materials brings the total weight to 485 g (similar to the weight of an iPad), which is only a quarter of the weight of the Nikon Speed Magny (approximately 2 kg). As the weight is roughly the same as general zoom lenses, you can shoot easily without burden.
For convenience, the Instant Magny 35 uses a strong mechanical modular design. It is comprised of enlarging optics film back, aluminum lens barrel, and film ejection unit. These three components are connected by a bayonet mount, making it simple to assemble and disassemble in order to transport or store.
Discovering the real me – The Real Me
Seeing your image in a photograph is seeing from the others’ perspective. People tend to be more familiar with their image in the mirror, but seeing themselves in pictures is not . However, when you use the Instant Magny 35 to capture portraits, the subject will feel more intimate with the image because this is the true “you” that you see in the mirror every day.
Due to the focal plane of the Instant Magny 35 through a monolithic mirror, a mirror image is projected onto the Instax Square Instant film, which is the ideal result from the consideration of optical engineering and the process of product development. As a result, a familiar image of the subject can be captured as the photographer is taking portraits.
Utilizing the commonly used Fujifilm Instax Square instant film
A 24x24mm image is immediately enlarged onto the 62x62mm Fujifilm Instax Square film because of the Instant Magny 35’s optic scheme. With a suitable image size, 1:1 square film ratio, and amazing presentation of color, the Instant Magny brings the classic square photography experience to traditional cameras. Fujifilm Instax Square Instant film used within the Instant Magny is commonly used and purchased easily anywhere.
