You can now add FujiFilm cameras to the long list of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba collaborations.
On 25 November, the camera company’s online shop will accept reservations for Demon Slayer-themed Instax ‘Cheki’ cameras. The cameras will be available on 10 December, just in time for Christmas.
The cameras will come in two varieties. One will be black with a green checkered pattern for Tanjiro. There will also be a pink one for his sister, Nezuko.
Other than the ‘green for demon-slaying boys, pink for demon girls’ branding, the two types will be essentially the same.
Unlike most cameras, the Instax series is designed to instantly print out photographs.
Fujifilm x Demon Slayer Camera Details
Both cameras will come with a pink or green shoulder strap, green or pink camera pouch, a photo print storage case shaped like Nezuko’s box, and a Demon Slayer ‘Cheki’ print card.
The strap’s handy for when you want to take a bunch of photos (perhaps when we are finally able to return to in-person cosplay photos at anime conventions?), but don’t want to keep holding the camera. And the pouch would be useful for when you’re done taking photos, and it’s time to head home.
The cameras are based on the Instax Mini 11 model. According to the Instax website, the Mini 11 creates 62 mm by 46 mm photos, which take 90 seconds to develop. The camera has a 60 mm lens. It also has a ‘selfie mode,’ and a flash which self-adjusts the shutter speed.
The Mini 11 seems to get pretty good reviews on Amazon, where it gets 4.8 out of 5 stars overall. ‘G’s Mom’ on Amazon found ‘the quality of the pictures to be very similar’ to the older Mini 9. ‘Jacqueline’ stated that it is ‘a bit bulkier’ than the Mini 25.
However, the ‘TechGuru’ reviewer on the Nerd Techy website notes that you can’t edit your photos or store digital copies.
Fujifilm will produce a limited number of Demon Slayer cameras.
