The Instax Mini 7 is made in Japan by Fuji. It uses Fuji's own instant film format "Instax Mini". The Mini 7 has a basic light meter to allow the user to switch between four different apetures, they are indicated by symbols (default, overcast, sunny, very sunny). When the camera is powered on the meter will indicate the desired aperture with a blinking red LED next to the symbol the user should switch to, no blinking LED indicates the camera will shoot wide open, the default aperture settings. To power on the device you pull the whole lens section outward until it clicks into postion, internally this also extends rubber belows.
