Of course this would not be an Instax product without it featuring instant photo printing, the Mini Evo Hybrid does this in a rather unique way by utilizing a film-winder as the print option.
As if you were shooting an old film camera and advancing to the next frame, you simply take a picture and if you like the look of it and want to hand other the memory to a friend simply advance the film level and a rather clever animation appears of the back of the 3" LCD screen showing the picture moving across the frame until your image is printed and ejected from the side of the camera.
If you think that sounds cool, then see for yourself:
