The yellow 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.

    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.

    The fujifilm was a great buy. I'm happy I purchased it because it's small in size yet very nice too. My friends love it too, having an instant picture appear in front of you to keep.

      My 15 year old daughter uses this camera. Quick and instant pictures with a nostalgic flare was what interested her. She uses it with her friends and is building a photo wall with the prints.
      A little pricey on the film side...

      the films are a bit expensive and I wish we can print multiple copies through the camera.

      A fun camera

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

      I own several big honking DSLRs with those f/2.8 zooms everyone raves about. I have a great mirrorless camera with insanely sharp prime lenses. I carry a fancypants smartphone that shoots photos almost as good as my DSLR everywhere I go...

      ...And yet, ever since I got this lovely little Fuji instant camera, it's the first camera I reach for when I see something worth capturing. Sure, there are cameras that have "better" specs. But you know what? This camera is fun.

      That counts for a lot.

          Saw this at a holiday party a few weeks ago and had to have one. Hard to find this time of year & had to order online. Great, fast service from B&H photo. Package came securely packed and packaged.

          The camera is simple and easy to use. Anyone and any age can handle/operate! Film is easy to insert (remove when done) and pics come out great (for a mini "Polariod" style camera). You will need one battery, too.

          Film comes in regular black and white border & colored borders as well - additional film styles also available with a simple search online. Once printed, they're about the size of a credit card. You can write on the bottom part of the photo, too. Good for a party for "favors," decorations for an ornament or gift, birthday card, etc. Or if you're a teacher, good to make a "Get to Know You Wall" for your students, etc. Lots of ways to use these photos!

            My 16 year old daughter wanted it for Christmas. Fun to use with friends, as iphone pics usually stay on phone. The first 2 pics came out very dark, which at [$]a pic, didn't make us happy. You need to be close up & in good light . Make sure you read instructions & turn light gage to correct lighting position.
