    I love this camera so much that I'm buying a backup in case the first one ever fails on me. The camera looks fantastic and gives the user some much needed control over exposure modes and ability to shut down the flash. But be very careful, once you have run a few packs of film through it you will realize how addictive this device is.

    I have so much fun giving away photos to strangers on the street and then snapping an extra pic for myself. It's a great ice breaker and people are always delighted.

    The rainbow film has become my favorite and really adds punch to the images so do try some in addition to the regular white frames.

    Also, one reviewer below says to not shoot on the dark setting outdoors. This is nonsense, I almost exclusively shoot on the darker setting becomes it adds richness to the colors and deepens the tones.

    This camera has great retro style and is a lot of fun to use. The pictures, although not the best quality, were a hit with my friends and family. The biggest problem was that I had a lot of trouble seeing through the viewfinder. I could eventually do it (see the subject through the viewfinder), but it often took a few seconds, at the expense of subject spontaneity. Also, the strap seemed to get in the way when taking pictures. Fun camera, but imo, the functionality issues did not outweigh the fun factor for this price point; I'm going to try one of the lower-priced versions instead.

      Fotos muito boas!

      Comments about INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera (Black):

      A câmera é muito bonita e chama a atenção pelos detalhes em pretos e a correia para pendurar no pescoço. As diversas funções ajudam muito, e a possibilidade de desligar o flash é um diferencial. Talvez a única reclamacao seja o tamanho e formato das fotos. Me incomoda na hora de tirar em paisagem. Podiam fazer filmes nesse formato, mas aí já deve ser implicância minha mesmo. Uma variedade de iso do filme também era bem vinda.

      Great camera! Easy to Use! Very Fun!

      Comments about INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera (Black):

      If you're reading this, here's what matters. It's not a smartphone or a digital camera. This little guy is will not produce dslr pics consistently...however you will get amazing shots regardless. There's a slight learning curve with all Instant Film cameras. You will get a few fails, learn from them. I have shot over 140 pics with both the Neo Classic and Instax 210 and I had at least 15-20 bad pics. The modes for the Neo Classic are improved over the 210, and images can have greater contrast which gives a completely different vibe vs the 210. Additionally this camera is very light weight which makes it comfortable to hang in most outdoor adventures. In summary, I'm having so much fun with these cameras. The Neo Classic is a larger commitment based on price, but I'm glad we added it to out growing collection: Instax 210, Neo Classic 90, Lomography Konstruktor (arriving soon).Enjoy the nice pics and experiences this camera will provide.

        Comments about INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera (Brown):

        A bit bulky for their smallest camera but once I have it my hands, it's no big deal at all. The brown is plasticy, but it's a plastic camera so...This is a fun little instant camera. I'm impressed with the battery life so far, not a problem at all maintaining its charge over a couple days and few film packs. Very easy to use. Fun using a portrait-oriented camera/film. Kind of that old retro Polaroid feel with good lomo film - love the quality of the Fuji Instax film.It's very light weight, comes with an OK strap. Shooting modes - awesome.

          Comments about INSTAX Mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera (Black):

          I bought this for my girlfriend that works in the Fashion Industry & needs "quick takes" on what they are about to spend "Real Money$" on a shot that they later won't end up using.. Essentiallly to "frontun" their photography sessions. The Polaroid alternative is not vesatile & it costs big per shot! Fuji "reinvented" the Polaroid and matches it with creative development ideas that make this shot small, and cool. It serves the exact purpose & at around 1/2 the cost per shot it is WAY Better! Of Course since they also produce the film they are being aggressive in this market. The Action & slow motion adjustments work well to boot.

                I bought this camera to use together with my girlfriend. We don't live in the same city so we like taking tons of photos together with my Canon Rebel and we end up printing them out to hang up. With this new camera it makes all the photos the only one of its kind. It feels different not having a digital copy, but having the photo in your hand immediately to be hung up is really nice. Plus we love retro feeling stuff and this camera delivers on that.

                First thing is first, if you think you're going to take amazing photos with this, you will be extremely disappointed. There's minimal control, no focusing, and lackluster colors, however what it is is amazing fun. The pictures have a great classic retro feel, and if you bust this thing out at a party, or even a street, people will instantly insist on having fun with you. The film can be expensive to shoot, but in the long run, worth it.

                    I love this camera. I'm a professional artist and mostly known for street type of photography. I have works in museums etc. The cool thing about this camera is that it brings me back to the mentality of no post production. You either get it or you dont, no fixing it later. This camera was kicking my butt in that sense, and it took a renewed commitment to really look at what I was doing and it's been great. Get one, it will challenge you in the best of ways. Really love it, and it's quite flexible in what you can do.

                        I like the camera but getting used to shots and adjustments is very spendy.. There is no way to know what you're pic will look like
                        So each time you shoot 40 cents.

                                      My wife has 85 pairs of shoes in the original boxes SO I needed put into shoes box that stack but even with clear boxes, stacking them you can't see in so FUJIFILM INSTANT print on the front of each of the shoe box you can see what is inside. They are also great at parties everyone is selfing no one sees of holds photos anymore

                                      I love this camera! I bought it on a whim on a recent weekend trip to NYC. I couldn't be happier. It is so light and easy to carry around and fits in almost any jacket pocket. There are lots of different settings, but I haven't really used any yet. The photos always come out nice and people love the novelty of it.

                                        The film comes out with vibrant colours and great details. I love all the different settings too!
