    Product Description

    Minolta's MN67Z Bridge Camera features a long-reaching 67x optical zoom along with versatile recording capabilities in a small and compact body. Its 20.68MP BSI CMOS sensor enables high-resolution stills shooting and 1080P FHD video recording with low noise and sensitivity from ISO 100-3200 as well as SD 640x480p video in high-speed 120 fps. The expansive zoom covers a 23.4-1568mm equivalent focal length range for working with subjects both near and far and is complemented by a 4x digital zoom that sets the combined total at 268x magnification. Optical image stabilization helps minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting, which can be paramount when shooting at extremely long focal lengths. The rear of the camera features an electronic viewfinder (EVF) with adjuatable diopter, 3.0" 920k-dot LCD monitor for easy review and composition of your images that’s fully articulated allowing you to compose selfies and vlogging videos with ease. Built-in Wi-Fi is available for image transfer and the included 16GB SD card ensures your pictures remain safely stored even without a wireless connection.

    Product Description

    The INSTAX PAL Digital Camera – a super small digital camera eager to capture small, spontaneous moments. And with a built-in, wide-angle lens, you can capture exactly what you love. Your landscape. Your friends. Your fun. Although this camera is pocket-friendly, the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera won’t be spending much time tucked away. Record up to 5 sets of personalized, pre-shutter phrases or sounds using the free downloadable INSTAX PAL Smartphone App and the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera will randomly play one of the 5 sounds/phrases whenever you hit the shutter button. Get ready for some friendly, pose-readying encouragement before snapping away. “Spin around! Dance. Smile. Fist bumps. High fives!” Plus, use the included multi-use detachable ring with your INSTAX PAL Camera – as a viewfinder to help get the best shots, as a finger carry loop for an easy hold, or as a camera stand for remote shooting from the INSTAX PAL App. Tap into the power of the INSTAX PAL Smartphone App with the Remote Shooting feature and get a live view of the upcoming shot on your Smartphone! Using the Interval Shooting App feature of the INSTAX PAL Smartphone App you can snap fast-paced digital INSTAX images in sequences of 3, 6, 11 or 21, so you can take “in the moment” shots without missing a beat. When you’re ready to see your digital images, transfer them from the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera (there’s space in the internal camera media for up to 50) to your INSTAX PAL Smartphone App via Bluetooth, then head to the built-in camera roll on the App. Once they’ve arrived, you get to do your thing – add one of the 18 photo-tastic filters, include some text, or decorate with in-App stickers. You can even choose your INSTAX photo format –MINI, SQUARE or WIDE. Once you have customized your images, you can print using the bundle included INSTAX MINI LINK 2 Smartphone printer and INSTAX MINI instant film by selecting your transferred INSTAX PAL images and connecting with your downloaded INSTAX MINI LINK App.* Or print (as you take the shot) directly from the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera to the Bluetooth-paired INSTAX MINI LINK 2 Smartphone Printer, by switching the bottom button on the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera to “L” (LINK mode) - no use of App required! But, that’s not all. Discover the impressive array of animations in the “Gift Inbox” within the INSTAX PAL Smartphone App, where you can turn sequenced, Interval Shooting images or your Gallery images into an animation once your images have been transferred into the App. Perfect for viewing in-App, or for printing an INSTAX photo with a QR code that can be scanned with a Smartphone to reveal your animation. *Images can also be printed with any other INSTAX LINK Series Smartphone Printer, or using the INSTAX MINI LIPLAY or INSTAX MINI EVO Hybrid Instant Cameras (sold separately). Smartphone download of the App relating to your applicable INSTAX device required.
