20 Most Recent FUJIFILM Instax 200 Instant Film Camera + Instax Film Accessory Kit Film Camera Questions & Answers

Your camera will work with AA batteries.
Always be sure the batteries are charged.
Insert the batteries correct plus to plus and minus to minus. Only one battery the wrong way around and the camera won't work.
Check contacts of the batteries and in the battery compartment of your camera. Dirty or oxidised contacts can be cleaned with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools to clean contacts or anything in or on your camera.
Always charge the batteries before using it for the first time, or if you have not used it for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Also check if the battery door is closed correct. Most cameras do have a switch connected to the battery door. If the switch does not work correct, it could be you can't switch on your camera.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In most cases, alkaline batteries have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera. They can't deliver enough power and can start leaking, causing damage to your camera.

X-rays can fog many types of film. If you are flying you can declare that you have film, and have them manually inspect it rather than sending it through the x-ray machine.

Camera might be damaged because of the fall, suggest to consult the Authorized Dealer near you (-see above link), or send it back to the store where you purchase it as it may be still part of the warranty.

Thank you

Films 800 and higher (800, 1600, 3200 iso), should not go thru the x-ray. I recently took a lot of films on holidays in the US, the security staff were very helpful and understanding. I put my high iso films and instax in a clear ziplock bag, and asked for hand inspection, they do a swab to check for whatever they are screening for. The x-ray machine has a sign that says films under 800 are OK in the machine, that means 400, 200, 100 etc. not 800.

There is a risk if you put it in the checked baggage, as sometimes this is x-rayed, and that's supposed to be even stronger x-ray.

So, take your film in a clear ziplock to the security people and ask for hand inspection due to 800 iso. Couple of times I was asked extra questions, they asked to see the camera, I explained it's big in Japan. Another time they asked me to open the package, opening the cardboard package, and even opening the silver wrapper is OK because the film is still safe inside it's black plastic cartridge.

The lens shutter to which you refer is actually the lens cover - the shutter itself is located within the camera, and controls the exposure.

you can put it back in again but the film has been exposed so it will be no good
you will need a new film cannister

See the second item here: http://www.filmbodies.com/cameras/camera-faq/

If you're flying in the US, ask for hand inspection. If you're in another country, ask for hand inspection anyway: it can't hurt to ask.

Reasonably simple - the camera goes on top, the three legs are extended to whatever height you require, and the feet placed on the ground.
