The blue 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.

    I didn't rate this 5 stars because it's not a DSLR so you're not getting that quality of picture. However, I've used it inside when it's darker without a lot of natural light and surprisingly is does a fair job. It's a fun camera to use. The film is sort of expensive but if you consider you aren't paying for processing it evens out. It's a great camera for holidays or get-togethers where you just want to have fun and not pose professionally as you might with your DSLR. The only con I have is that the layout is not user friendly. To try and take a portrait type shot you hold the camera vertical and the shutter release is now on the opposite side of your body so my right arm is crossed over the camera. It's not a deal breaker but it is annoying. And in general the shutter button is just in a difficult spot. It's not a natural place you would put your hand. You have to contort your hand even holding the camera normally so that you don't block the flash.

    my son has been wanting this camera, he loves the fact that it prints out instantly and its easy to operate, I think that the film it self is a little high on price but other than that its a good camera, as long as he is happy!

    My 13 y/o niece specifically asked for this camera as her bday gift. This camera performs as outlined in the brochure/ads. It's user friendly and quenches the instant gratification my niece was looking for. We purchased the kit and pleased so far.

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

          I bought this camera to take on a vacation. I wanted something fun to use for quick candid shots that would become souvenirs from our trip.

          It is so easy to use! Just pop in the film and batteries and away you go.

          The only negative is the color seems a bit muted, and if you're too close up it doesn't focus well. I wasn't trying to go macro or anything, but I would suggest 3 feet between camera and subject.

          This would be a really fun gift for a child, my 12 yr old niece would love it!

          This camera is a lot of fun.

                This was a birthday present for my daughter - she loves it. It's easy to use and the quality of the pictures is quite good for an instant camera. Colors are sharp and good - much different from when I used instant cameras as a kid SO many years ago! :) Highly recommend - makes a great gift for a young person.

                I bought this camera as a gift for my 9 year old nice and she loves it. I loved it too; out of 10 exposures in the first cartridge, she took 3 and I took 7 :)) I just wish the photos were a bit bigger in size. Beautiful Fuji tones. Note: The picture attached was taken with a Fujifilm instax mini 90 Neo Classic which I later received as a gift for my birthday (bought here at B&H) Inside the house, no flash. Both have similar image quality. Highly recommended products.

                Cute and fun. The only problem I have is the flash. Sometimes the flash settings ruins the pic, rather than help it. Doesn't take great pics inside, and blurry up close. Outside pics can come out beautiful, if you get lucky with the right weather, angle of sunlight and flash setting.

                  This Polaroid camera is really easy to use. The settings are pretty self explanatory and simple. If the instax films came in more than 10 per cassette it would be even more awesome. But other than that it is still fun to take vintage looking photos!

                  This instax camera worked overall awesomely well, I took some decent photos with it, everything came safely wrapped up, and nothing was damaged or missing!. I indeed recommend buying one if you would like to take vintage photos, or just simply taking selfies haha!. B & H is a great place to buy one of these camera's.

                    This does what it says it does. It is an instant, credit card-sized print maker, kind of like a slightly smaller version of what Polaroid cameras used to do.

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

                          I use the product to take photos of "memories", for instance when I go places I take photos of things there and my family and friends.
                          The best thing about it is the size, cute colors, and the size of the photos-they're small enough to fit in a business card holder.
                          The only thing I have to complain is that it takes a little getting used to when it comes to light settings, even though it tells you.
