If you love taking photos and appreciate cutting-edge gadgets that are as cute as they are functional, then you should check out Fujifilm’s newest camera that goes a step beyond printing photos after you take them. The Instax Mini LiPlay is the company’s smallest and most lightweight hybrid instant camera to date, making it perfect for travelers, people on-the-go and your friend who’s always capturing those precious Hallmark Moments.

Bringing together the features of an analog instant film camera and the ease of a regular digital camera, the LiPlay uses a 1/5-inch digital image sensor to shoot small prints, similar to ones taken with other Instax Mini cameras.

But this one goes above and beyond with the digital features and features a microphone on the front of the gadget to let you record some sound to go with your favorite images.


Users can press the microphone button on the front to record up to ten seconds of audio that can be converted to a QR code that is printed onto the image. You can then scan the image with your phone to hear the clip! Audio and the visual make these pictures worth well over a thousand words, right?

The LiPlay is also pretty cute and comes in colors called blush gold, stone white and elegant black.

Fujifilm boasts that the LiPlay is user friendly, allowing you to review your shots through an LCD screen on the back of the gadget before you actually print. This is great for those that get a little to snap happy, giving them the option to only print the very best shots. This little camera also comes with six color filters, along with 30 frame options to choose from prior to printing.


The LiPlay is also equipped with Bluetooth so you can easily connect it to your phone. With the special LiPlay app, users can remotely control and snap pictures. Not to mention it doubles as an on-the-go printer for any pictures you take with your phone.

How great is that for when you take the perfect, Instagrammable shot and want a copy of it IRL?

The LiPlay went on sale June 14 and currently sells for $159.99 at Best Buy.
