The black Fujifilm instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera is a compact camera that supports the use of Fujifilm instax mini type film to produce instant credit card-sized prints. In regard to imaging, the instax mini 8 features a Fujinon 60mm lens that is capable of focusing as close as 2' away. A built-in flash provides additional illumination for exposures when working in low-light conditions and automatic exposure control helps to ensure consistently accurate exposures in a variety of lighting conditions. An optical viewfinder with integrated target spot is available for image composition and an exposure counter is incorporated into the design to visually display the number of exposures remaining in the film pack. For extra convenience, due to their widespread availability, the instax mini utilizes two AA batteries as its power source.

    Instant film lives on

    I should briefly preempt my review by stating that I am a photo enthusiast who grew up towards the end of the 35mm film age, but I have never owned an instant film camera. I currently use a Nikon D7000 with a bunch of primes, flash guns, and other semi-pro equipment.My first interaction with this camera was when my sister pulled it out of her bag and snapped a photo during a recent family trip. When she explained that she and her husband had purchased it on a whim and they showed me some of the good results they got from it, I had to try it for myself (well, as soon as I looked up the angle of view and aperture of the lens, the ISO of the film, and the shutter speed range of the camera). I took pictures of of a few scenes - a landscape, a macro, a portrait, and a random still-life in mixed lighting - and, for the most part, I liked what I saw.Just to get all of the cons out of the way:First and foremost, do not expect sharp results. This is lo-fi at it's best, complete with a cheap lens and instant film. Secondly, the viewfinder is tiny, and you have to consider parallax for closer subjects. Third, the flash will always fire whether it's needed or not (though, opaque tape seems to solve that problem, preferably something that's made of gauze so it will still be useful when it is necessary). Fourth, it cannot do macro shots because the closest focusing distance is somewhere around 3ft/1m. (PS: If the latter two are cause for concern, the Instax Mini Neo 90 resolves these issues.)With that all said, this is still a fun camera, and I bought one for my better half and myself not long after our first experience. The colors are surprisingly consistent in daylight conditions, and the tonal range is really nice (so long as you don't use 'hi-key'). Indoor and incandescent lighting conditions turn out less predictable results, but, all things considered, this isn't entirely unexpected. Regardless, I enjoy using it as much as I love using my digital equipment. Not only is it back-to-basics photography, where you have to consider your exposures and think about what you're doing - you only get 10 photos in each film pack - you get near-instant results and a physical keepsake. It's a fun family or party camera, and it has managed to help realign my approach to photography.It's cheap, it's certainly not everyone's cup of tea, but, as I have discovered, it can turn out some really nice results with practice and time.

    i really enjoyed this camera for play around with the family and the girlfriend but i dont like tha viewfinder being so small and i dont like that i cant turn off the flash but for casual shots with the family and friends and kids it is great but not for someone getting into polaroid shooting..the images are a decent size for certain occasions. still a great camera and very tough(i dropped it a few times and had no issues.

          Comments about INSTAX Mini 8 Instant Film Camera (Pink):

          The camera perform better than I had expected it to. I am really impressed that there is a dial in the back of the camera letting you know how many pictures you have left and the zoom in the front is also a great feature! your also slowed to let the camera know what kind of scene you are in for better photo quality! overall great camera and would recommend this to everyone

            Make Sure You Know What You Want

            Comments about instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera (White):

            The camera itself is easy to use, good quality and well built. Taking the photos does take a little bit to get used to with figuring out what will turn out well and what won't. Overall, it is a great camera just make sure that you are happy with the quality of the pictures. If you want more presice and accurate pictures, I would recommend something else. If you are looking for old-timey, tangible, durable pictures with a vintage look to them, I would highly consider this.

                    I bought this for my 10 year old granddaughter as it is now the "rave". She loves it but I am not sure we needed to go back to instant photos when we can snap shots on all our phones and there is no cost for film. Oh well, it is easy to use and she loves it! That's what is important...

                      I use this camera on a day to day basis. I take pictures of friends, family, and random shots of anything. Even a horrible picture or angle comes out looking great because the color film is also fantastic, although i believe it's a bit over-priced. I have no other negatives, and nothing but more positive things to say about this camera.

                      Ordered from B&H, -why go anyplace else- and got this fabu little gem the very next day! Needless to say, it is a super easy, super fun gift that is just the right thing for a 12 year old girl who needs instant gratification with all of her giggly friends!! Too much fun. Plus, they get to decorate the photos with sharpies. Great for a tween, and I wouldn't mind getting my hands on it for some old skool laughs.
                      Just be sure to stock up on film, because you'll go through it FAST.

                        This is a great product. Especially in this cell phone picture era. The quality of the pictures are great! The fact that you can have an actual picture instantly is a great plus. The only downside that I can see is having to buy film. It seems kind of pricey, however, I think having actual pictures rather than just storing them on a computer is priceless!

                            This is an excellent little camera for anyone interested in instant photography. I know the Impossible Project has brought back film for Polaroid cameras, and Fuji sells film that fits older polaroid land cameras, but the Instax Mini is small, easy to use, and inexpensive.
                            Obviously there is a bit of novelty/nostalgia associated with this camera, and it's certainly not a professional-grade camera, but the built-in flash works well, you can manually adjust the brightness with a handful of preset lighting scenarios, and the photos come out clear, in focus, and the color is really great.
                            I imagine this would make an excellent gift for someone's teenaged child, if they are at all interested in photography (and what artsy kid isn't intersted in photography at some point in high school?)
                            All in all it's a very fun, light and portable, inexpensive camera. You don't have much to lose by giving it a try.
