BLOG EVENT: TEAM INSTAX PHILIPPINES AND THE INSTAX WANDER LAUNCH

Yesterday was the launching of the new additions to the Instax family of products!  I was lucky enough to be able to get up from bed and haul myself to Trinoma and to my favorite place in the entire Trinoma mall.
Vanilla Cupcake Bakery hosted our media and blogger event.  And it was an beautiful display of delicious cupcakes, and savory treats.  I only order the glazed tuyo because of my fish diet that started last November but it doesn't mean I'd just let that carbonara just sit there, I mean it has bacon after all! c'mon! bacon!
The event began after parlor games to enliven the attendees.  Takuya Maeda the Assistant to the President the Division Head Electronic Imaging & Photo Imaging was presenting and the presentation did not take for granted that some of us has never even held a polaroid much less the sixteen year old instax by Fujifilm.
Takuya-san gave a funny, short, clear, and informative presentation.  As someone who hasn't even held an instax this is what I needed.  And the life of the Instax was infused with a boom of production and sales because of a Korean drama back in 2007 :-) 
After the presentation TeamInstaxPh unveiled the new colors of the mini 8!  the grape and rasperberry :-)
They've also released a Safari-ed mini-90!  Safari-ed because the gift pack of this comes with a travel-luggage design.


This is the same as the black mini 90 with the features below:

Features

1. High performance flash

The high performance flash emits the ideal amount of the light finely adjusted for the distance to the subject and ambient brightness. It helps to optimize the exposure.

2. Party mode

The party mode enables the background as well as the subject to be captured brightly.

3. Kids mode

This mode is helpful to capture fast moving subjects like children and animals.
Use of this mode is effective in shooting under low light conditions, such as room light or on a cloudy day.

4. Landscape mode

It is best suited to target a distant subject (3m to ∞).

5. Brightness control

You can add a low-key or high-key effect by controlling the brightness of photos.

6. Macro mode

The newly equipped macro mode lets you enjoy stunning close-up photography. Close-up from 30cm to 60cm is possible.

7. Bulb exposure mode

In bulb exposure mode, the shutter remains open (up to 10 seconds) while the shutter button is depressed, enabling photo capture that shows attractive night views and light streaks. You can take expressive photos, with more fun added to instax photography.

8. Double exposure mode

By selecting the double exposure mode and pressing the shutter button twice, you can superimpose two different images in one frame to create an artistic photo. Show your creativity with a unique photo.

Unlike the previous Instax Hello Kitty iterations, this one actually has a body shaped just like the head of Hello Kitty.
But the event didn't stop there.  Because of the holidays, Team Instax Ph have brought in the gift sets great to give during this year end holiday festivities!
The Safari-ed Instax mini 90 and its travel box.
and an Instax Mini 8 in blue and several accouterments.  And here there are below.  Check out your nearest Fujifim store and the dealers listed here 
And for the finale of the event, they gave three instax cameras! I was the first to be drawn!

I'm really excited about this new gadget.  I missed out on their launch with Sampleroom last year because of a virus and a flash flood so even thought I was not in tip top shape this weekend I knew I had to at least try to go to this event and I'm glad i did.  Having my name picked out of a box to win an Instax Mini 8 was the icing on my cupcake ^_^
