I ran out of time tonight but I’m determined to find out how the Instax Mini 7S controls exposure…

22 September update: The camera definitely adjusts the aperture to control exposure. I set the Nikon AW100 to “fireworks” mode to get a long shutter and snapped the inside of the Instax while it fired. I thought I’d have to be clever and defeat interlocks but it turns out the Instax doesn’t care if the back is open or if there is film loaded with regard to the shutter and flash.
