A fun camera, for people who love retro things.
What is the Fujifilm Instax mini 8?
The Fujifilm Instax mini 8 is a modern take on an old-fashioned polaroid camera, allowing users to take photographs, which they can then instantly print out and develop. This makes it incredibly cool and trendy, providing retro-style polaroid’s that are very much in vogue on social media websites, like Instagram and to a lesser extent Facebook.
The Fujifilm Instax mini 8 comes in a variety of different colors (white, blue, pink, yellow and black), making it easy to personalize according to taste. While it looks a bit like an oversized kid’s toy, with its big lens and slightly cheap plastic finish. This somehow doesn’t diminish its coolness, and the fact that it doesn’t take itself too seriously is definitely a plus. Despite its relatively large size the it is reasonably light weighing in at 307 grams, which may not quite be pocket sized, but can definitely fit comfortably in a bag.
How it works
The camera is fairly basic, offering a basic brightness adjuster close to the lens, along with a viewfinder that sits just next to the flash. While you will find the battery and film compartments on the back of the camera. This simplicity means that it can be used by anybody and everybody and will be enjoyed as much by beginners as expert photographers. It only offers you five levels of exposure, to find the ideal lighting conditions, which makes it refreshing and easy to use. Then all you do is point the camera at what you want to take a photo of and press the button! The camera will then print it out for you, providing you with a fun photoprint, which can be stuck on the wall, turned into a card, given to the subject and much, much more.
The Fujifilm Instax mini 8, is ideal for people who just want to have fun: you won’t get stunning professional quality photos with it and you won’t have much control over the photos that you produce. However, you will be able to instantly print out polaroid’s and have a whole load of fun doing it, making it ideal for a wide-range of people. Because, who doesn’t love printing out incredible photos that capture the exact thing that is happening. The Fujifilm Instax mini 8, will enable you to truly live in the moment.
