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.

    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.

    neat little camera

    Camera feels really flimsy. Feels like cheap plastic. Works better at night. Sometimes looks too far away. Looks too vintage for my taste sometimes.

                          Great camera for Kid !! There is one big problem when your kid start using this nice camera. Every time when you open lens on front you have to set first to take a shot. I wasted a lot of paper when my kid start to learn haw to use. I highly recommend

                          This thing is great for people looking for an easy to use polaroid camera. Can get boring pretty fast if you're looking for lots of options though.

                          I got this camera as a birthday present and it's something I was thinking about getting for a while. it's totally worth it! the camera itself is a really pretty baby blue and it takes great pictures. the downsides are that it took me a while to get used to so I wasted a few films and the film is a bit on the expensive side. I could definitely see myself using this on vacation, road trips, or anywhere.

                          The camera itself is somewhat bulky, but it's very cute. The plastic feels nice, feels matte, and feels like good quality plastic. The camera is also incredibly easy to use!

                          The color of the camera is much lighter than shown in the photo. It's a very pale baby blue color - it's very delicate and nice!

                          Overall great instant camera and shipping and prices at B&H are unbeatable!

                            I thought twice before I bought this camera but i'm so happy i did. It works like a charm! I use it to take profile and random shots for my projects, i love it! Only downer is that you can't turn off the flash but a quick remedy is to put a piece of tape over the flash when you don't need it. Great product and it's cute and small so you can tote around with you everywhere. #fun

                              My granddaughter wanted a polaroid camera and it is perfect for a young girl.
                              The size of the camera is easy to handle and the size of the pictures are cute.

                              Camera feels really flimsy. Feels like cheap plastic. Works better at night. Sometimes looks too far away. Looks too vintage for my taste sometimes.

                              I travel a lot and often take photos of children at play or ladies at the market; they really enjoy seeing their picture and with this camera, I can give it to them. The camera is a bit bulky and heavy, but the smiles I recieve are so worth carrying the extra weight.
