    Pros:
    - The pictures always seem to come out great. Because you only have one chance at a photo with this camera I think that this is paramount. (I ALWAYS close my eyes in photos and with the 300 I have so far had 15 flawless photos)
    - Great to share photos with friends (though they are hard to give away, especially because of the cost for each photo)
    - Easy to take photos of yourself with friends, they look better than point and shoot photos because they are meant to be taken up close
    - The quality of photo is what is expected of an instant camera. It is a little on the grainier side if taken too far away, but in general the quality ads character and doesn't take away from the "feeling" of the shot like some cameras with too bright a flash.

    Cons:
    - Shape is a little awkward
    - On the bulkier side
    - The button to take the photo is in a strange spot so you have to constantly remind anyone who is playing with it not to pull out the lens (turns it on) and by accident take a picture
    - Photos are VERY expensive (about $1 each and comes in packs of 10)

    tips:
    - Take the photos up close (closer than you would think)
    - Don't let too many people play with it, otherwise you may end up with wasted film

    Overall, I love this camera. People always comment on how great the photos come out. If only it wasn't a little more portable!

    I bought this for my daughter at her request. It is, in my opinion, one of the single most pointless devices, photographic or otherwise, I have ever seen. Unless you are in market for poorly exposed, expensive prints smaller than a business card, and enjoy hunting for difficult to obtain film (even Polaroid was back-ordered), I strongly recommend investigating the Fujifilm version. I wish I had.

    Cute and vintage

    Comments about 300 Instant Film Camera (Red):

    I was so excited to get this and it is truly a little gem. It makes me feel like I'm in the 90s again. It'll take a few shots before you realize what lighting looks good and how far away you should take a photo but once that is sorted out you will have wonderful bright Polaroids! I recommend this to anyone who loves 'old school' inspired stuff and just loves photography and taking pics overall.

          I bought this as a gift for my 4 year old niece. It turned out to be a fantastic choice. She was thrilled to receive it and hasn't stopped using it since. The operation is super simple, the unit has a decent build, and polaroids provide instant creative manifestation. Just what the world needs; another photographer! The only drawback is the price of the film...

          Such a cool camera....only thing is the price of the film - at about a buck a shot, definitely not for little kids. Gave this camera to my college age daughter for her study abroad trip to Ecuador. She only took 2 pictures over Christmas so she could save the film. Pictures are only about the size of a business card but its a blast watching them develop.

                      This camera is In no way complicated. Very easy and gets plenty of compliments. If you want a fairly cheap and entertaining camera this is the one. It's identical to the fujifilm instax mini. It will also accept the instax mini film. Also, with a little magic you can do double exposures! Love this little camera!!!

                          Very easy to use, the credit card format might seems a little small but it will fit in your wallet... Takes you back to the good old days of polaroid. Photos some out with that retro look everybody tries to re-create using software these days.

                                    We bought our polaroid camera for our wedding photobooth. It worked like a charm, our wedding was vintage them and this camera just topped the night off. Everyone had a blast using the camera and capturing funny and great moments. It was simple to use, and with the multiple scenes otpions it allowed to work in our different locations!! Thank you for making our wedding have even more special moments!! Looking back at polaroid photos is amazing!

                                    This is a great camera for candid people shots, particularly while you're traveling in exotic places. People love to see themselves and this is far better than showing them the picture you took on regular digital camera LCD. But there's a newer smaller one coming and that will be better than the bulkiness of this one. Also, the image is quite small...business card size....and would be better a bit larger.

                                      I purchased this camera for a Happy Hour office party and it was a huge hit. People loved to be able to walk away with an image of themselves and their friends/co-workers. Personally, it brought back happy memories of my old polaroid and the fun that can be had with these instant shots.

                                        The film is expensive but worth it.

                                          Not the polaroid if you're looking for great image quality, but the ease of use for my 9 year old sister was great.
