    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.

    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.

    Great Camera!

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

    Fujifilm must have magicians working for them. They've turned a classic into another classic! I have fujifilm cameras and adding this to my collection makes my collection complete. My daughter and I use this camera a lot. We absolutely love the cute color, ours is yellow and the different settings on the camera. The film is adorable as well very nostalgic of the old polaroid film. Altogether, this makes for a great and fun camera to have.

            Be careful about not opening the film compartment. It'll burn your films! Besides that, the camera is perfect.

            from United States

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

            I'm in high school so getting a real Polaroid isn't a very realistic financial option for me so I decided to invest in this FujiFilm. I really don't have anything to complain about really considering it's convenient to pick up the film at my local @ and it works well indoors and at later, darker hours of the day. I just love being able to hold my work in my hands even if it's just a stupid picture of one of my friends. It's got an authentic quality. It's nice to hold something imperfect in a world that strives for perfection because nothing I've taken with this camera could be considered 'perfect'. My only complaint is that it doesn't work well during the day because there is too much light. I've tried covering the flash and changing the settings but nothing has come out well at all and it's a bummer that those pictures have been a waste. However I learned my lesson quickly and I won't make the mistake again. Good luck!

              The fun camera, you have to try this camera. For kids its the perfect camera. I have a Neo Classic 90 too, both cameras give beautiful results. For fun use this one, for more professional photos the Neo Classic is better. But both are realy fun to use.BTW my wife love this one, me its the Neo Claissic. You will love it too....

                    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.
