I'm seriously getting confused.

I'm Googling around for an Instax Mini 25 unit, but I keep getting conflicting results.

  • some of the results hint on a distinct difference between the Mini 25 and a Cheki (e.g. Mini 25s come in only white, while Chekis come in a variety of colors)

  • some of them show no distinction between the two, as if the two are interchangeable

So here I am. Can anybody tell me exactly what's up with this?

Instax Mini 7s and Mini 25 are also called Chekis, they are the same cameras. This article/entry on Photojojo might help to clear it up for you.

Perfect. I should've noticed the Japanese nuance right away, haha. Fuji and all that. Thanks! – Richard Neil Ilagan Mar 15 '12 at 2:12
