Tips for Taking Photos with Instax Mini!
This camera worked as describe. I couldn't wait to use it as soon as it arrived. it has a very sleek and modern look. My photos came out absolutely gorgeous and stunning. On the camera there are different modes with different icons. If shooting indoors I pick the one with the little house and if its a cloudy day outside there is a setting icon for that too. This camera is very reliable so far. I find it very efficient that after I take a picture the photo cames sliding out of the top of the camera. It takes about 60 seconds for the colors to developed. It works best used outdoors. When indoor it can be a little tricky depending on the range you are shooting from. There were a couple of pictures I took in Vegas indoor trying to capture a water fountain in the background with my gf but since I shot it so far away; the background of the picture came out dark. Although you can still tell it is us in the photo.
My initial reaction was that I had bought a knock off and I was concerned (it has the cheap plastic, old-school disposable camera feel to it)... especially since I didn't know what I was doing and the first few photos turned out near white. However, once I read up on the camera I learned about its most important feature - the light exposure dial. By adjusting the dial around the lens you're able to control how much light is exposed to your film. The coolest thing is, the camera knows which setting is best and will illuminate a small red light above the correct setting. It also has a counter to keep track of how many pictures remain.
It's been a year since I finally got everything together to make my kids a scrapbook. I took the camera to a conference I had to go to, loaded it with film, and it malfunctioned. Won't work and my money is down the drain. I don't want to say Fuji makes a faulty camera, but when the flash doesn't flash and the film doesn't feed I can't say anything else.
After using this for a year the internal rubber starts disintegrating and powder like rubber pieces tend to accumulate inside near the lens leading to black spots on the photos .
Great thing. Cute camera. Nice picture quality. Don’t worry about the price. We spend on so many random stuff. This is worth the money
It's a very cute and handy product... It's very easy to use, has different modes for shooting depending on the lighting... Good for beginners... Also I got it very cheap in this colour... Happy with my purchase.
I bought this for my 20 year old daughter and she absolutely LOVED it. I bought some remote control peg lights to go with it so that she could hang her instant pictures in her room. Although the film is expensive that instant picture of her friends and capturing memories is wonderful and she was thrilled to bits. So those thinking is it too old for someone, NO NO NO. Arrived in perfect condition, so very happy with the seller too.
Good camera when it works. Spent a long time trying to make it work as the photo would take but it would not print. Found out I had to push the back where the film went in to make it work so ended up wasting 10 photos because had to remove the film because initially thought that might have been the problem. Also you are not provided the batteries as the box says on it. But overall the picture quality is good. Just a shame there was some technical faults.
I bought this using my birthday money and was so happy when it arrived. The colour is lovely and I love the retro vibe. The camera comes with instructions and a strap for your wrist to avoid dropping it - the instructions are well written but I found tutorials on YouTube easier to understand. It was much bigger than I expected which was a happy surprise! The only thing about polaroid cameras are that sometimes the quality of the photos aren't brilliant, but obviously this is more of a fun, nostalgic approach to photography so it doesn't really matter. I would totally recommend buying one!
Package came damaged with wrong colour camera in the box which was also damaged!
Petit Fuji sympa et fun, il est simple d'utilisation, le prix des films n'est pas excessif (bien qu'un peu cher) et son look plait bien. L'utilisation est aisée, on déploie l'objectif, l'appareil nous indique quel mode de mesure sélectionner pour une photo optimale et "voilà" ! La mesure donnée semble pertinente mais peut-être un peu sombre pour les prises extérieures de loin (je suppose au delà de la zone couverte par le flash). Charger les films ne pose aucun soucis non plus, l'appareil et les films sont dotés d'un détrompeur. La taille des photo gagnerait à être un peu plus grande, mais pour se faire une petite décoration sympa ou immortaliser une soirée / rencontre sans se prendre la tête c'est suffisant et l'effet Pola donne le sourire / attise la curiosité de tout le monde. La qualité d'image est suffisante, mais ce n'est pas un réflex. En inspectant les clichés de près un léger manque de piqué se fait sentir, à distance "normale" d'observation le phénomène est moins marqué. Le flash permanent peut poser quelque problème de surexposition de près. Les couleurs sont bonnes, avec un aspect assez rétro plutôt agréable à l'œil, à voir selon les gouts de chacun.
A fun way to take pictures. It's simple, relatively quick and instant. My only grumble is I wish it had a selfie mirror like, as I had to hunt for a selfie mirror which can be attached to the lens. Not quite easy to carry like the newer Fuji instax but nothing to worry about.
Everything is good the size, colour for my daughter she like it a lot, easy to use
Good little camera for the money, good for indoor pictures. Rubish for outside pictures, the sensor is very bad at detecting the light and automatically outs it on the wrong setting 90% of the time
Can't speak to its performance as it's a Xmas present but looks a lovely camera and arrived quickly. Many thanks
De mi Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 solo puedo decir cosas buenas. Me tiene enamorada, vamos. Me la compré en color rosa y es mi nuevo juguetito. Muy fácil de manejar, por lo que la recomiendo incluso para niños a partir de 13 años (es un regalo muy original). Tiene varios modos (interior, exterior, día nublado, noche) y flash. Los cartuchos son muy fáciles de cambiar, aunque bien es cierto que cada foto sale a prácticamente 1€, pero la filosofía Polaroid es precisamente la de inmortalizar momentos precisos y únicos. No es una cámara para usar con tanta frecuencia como lo haríamos con una digital.
Used for photo booth at a wedding. Fantastic results !
Tons of fun. The GF and I love using this thing. Definitely but a roll of film for the purpose of getting used to taking pictures. But I love that it forces you to pick the moments you want to capture. The world of snapping a million pics of everything indiscriminately, and never doing anything with those photos just became sad to me, I used to love photo albums, and when i see my parents or grandparents look through old photo albums they saved up and traveled with, it brings them such joy. I can now recreate that in my own life. I still use my phone camera, but theres something wrong about having pics of my friends, mixed with pics of bar codes, pets, and checklists all in the same gallery on my phone. Thats not an album, thats laziness.
