I got hands-on with the new Instax Mini 99 and I'm seriously impressed

Fujifilm has announced the launch of its latest Instax Mini 99 hybrid instant camera and I'm absolutely in love with it. I may have only had this camera in my hands for an hour at the time of writing (and the excitement is for sure taking over), but everything about this new Instax screams professionalism to me. 

So far, I think the new Instax blends the best aspects of instant cameras with digital photography, allowing for much better control over the exposure and the colour of your printed images – while retaining the fun novelty of blindly shooting without a care in the world.
