The 135 camera instant backs previously developed were not designed for general use. For example, the Speed Magny system introduced by Nikon in the 60s was not only bulky but also heavy. The Instant Magny 35 utilizes lightweight and sturdy engineering plastic and aluminum alloy. The use of these materials brings the total weight to 485 g (similar to the weight of an iPad), which is only a quarter of the weight of the Nikon Speed Magny (approximately 2 kg).
As the weight is roughly the same as general zoom lenses, you can shoot easily without burden.
For convenience, the Instant Magny 35 uses a strong mechanical modular design. It is comprised of enlarging optics film back, aluminum lens barrel, and film ejection unit. These three components are connected by a bayonet mount, making it simple to assemble and disassemble in order to transport or store.
