Reality Check

  • Claim:

    100% hand-powered to create your unique Instax Mini Photos.

  • Reality:

    No battery required is the hero feature of the Escura Camera by Carbon.

  • Claim:

    An unprecedented instant photographic experience

  • Reality:

    Unprecedented is stretching the claim for a unique experience. The instant photography will seem familiar to those who have used a Polaroid or Instax Mini camera.

Bottom Line

The Escura Camera is a creative vintage style instant camera that requires no battery. It is created by the Hong Kong team Carbon who produced the One Mini several years ago. There is a history of success with Carbon, so the quality and final product falls on the lower risk end of the spectrum. As the campaign increases to raise funds, consider the potential delay for production.
