    Comments about Fujifilm instax mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera:

    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.

        Bought this camera as a gift for myself and as a little challenge in order to help me become a more spontaneous, risk-taking photographer. I love the camera! The pictures come out looking great, and it's a hit with my friends and family. It's so great to give the little pictures away as gifts right after taking them. Definitely instant gratification!

        I haven't used all of the features yet, but I look forward to testing the awesome double-exposure option.

            Fuji continues to make the past cool again. A bit of an impulse buy and fueled by some nostalgic feeling I decided to pick this us. I was not blind to it, I read several reviews prior to doing it. This is a cool product that allows the user to do something most of us have not been doing for a while. I love it. Camera is solid but plastic so don't expect some amazing construction. I love the styling that look f it however. Instax manages to capture some magic and deliver it in your hands. I love it and its now a great companion to my digital camera.

            Comments about Fujifilm instax mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera:

            I was a little sceptic when my second, third and fourth exposures became to jammed in the camera resulting in black or white images. However fuji quickly sent me whole new pack of film (20 exposures) with no questions asked. After that problem the camera has worked like a dream.

            This is an instant camera that gives you enough control to shoot with intent but enough chance that the whole photographic process becomes a much more fun experience.

            Everything I'm looking for in an instant camera.

            Difficult to assess this camera, as color reproduction is less that dynamic. But, it's in a class of it's own, so ...Tiny prints. Easily stored. Wish it were capable of storing images and allowing deletion of flawed shots, before printing. Eliminates ink-jet printing of images that fade and degrade over time. Expensive film. Preferred Rainbow film is even more expensive than standard instax mini film. Rated 4 1/2 stars, but ... if color reproduction had more dynamic punch, I'd give it 5 stars.A truly fun camera!VM

                  From click to print in minutes, the Neo provides a super fun, hassle-free photo experience. Compared to a Polaroid Spectra using Impossible film, the print quality (color, contrast, etc.) is far superior, the wait time significantly less, with the only disadvantage being the small image size. It's also cheaper to operate, at ~ $0.75 per shot. A nice consideration in the camera design is the two shutter release buttons, situated for portrait or landscape position. The viewfinder is nice and bright, but not well calibrated to the lens, so composition is hit-and-miss. Best used for artistic fun and to give kids/people a good laugh with a tangible memory.

                      I got this camera from my girlfriend after doing some pretty detailed research on "instant" (polaroid type) cameras.Let me save you some time researching: this is the BEST instant camera out there!All the features of the 90 make it (obviously) better than any other instant camera.The price (being ~[$] more expensive than the other instax) is worth the extra money. The look is far better than any other camera, and the photos taken can range anywhere from selfies on party mode, food pics on macro mode, night time pics on long exposure, and so many more. I'm so glad I spit out the extra few dollars on this little camera, it was well worth it!PROS:-Look, solid build (compared to other instax cameras)-Features!! The 90 is great for anyone- from point and shoot all the way to the double exposure, this little camera is fun for everyone-Can't beat the classic polaroid type filterCONS:-A little bit more expensive than other instant cameras-Film is still ~[$] a pop

                      Comments about Fujifilm instax mini 90 Neo Classic Instant Camera:

                      I bought this camera so that I could have instant (for a lack of a better word) and tangible documentation of my trips abroad. I have taken over 50 pictures thus far and have played around with every mode and setting tool available. Taking both indoor and outdoor shots, close-up and far range shots.

                      The best part of the camera would be its design. It has a beautiful pleather body, that surprises everyone when a an instant photo prints out. You are likely to hear "Oh! That camera makes polaroids?!" It is also light weight and easy to use. Installing film and taking out the battery to charge is a sintch.

                      I am however unhappy with how sensitive to light and motion the camera is. You have to have a steady hand or else your photos will come out blurry. You also need to keep your hand steady up to 5 seconds after you shoot or else you will get a picture of the ground or the sky. Also, do not use the Darken setting when taking pictures outside. It seems like it would make sense especially on a bright day, but you end up loosing all the detail and everythign comes out in a high contrast. The camera is great for close up selfies (use teh timer) and pictures of two people. The camera is not good for landscapes.

                        I bought this camera because of the macro and double exposure features. Just like any of the mini instax cameras it's a lot of fun and does need some time getting used to. I love how it looks like a vintage camera but it's a little hard to hold and it does feel plasticky. Now that the world has gone digital it's nice to have a physical print of my photos.

                          This is my second Instax Mini. My first was the Mini 8 and it definately has its limitations, but this has all the features I wished that one had for a while. The ability to kill the flash was worth the money alone. Super fun camera for anyone, and of course everyone is fascinated by the mini instant film.

                          I love this little camera. Takes good photos, takes a little time getting used to the settings and your more cautios with the photos you take since the film is a little expensive. But overall I like the camera.

                          I debated whether I should get an instant camera or a picture printer, this is a lot more of a fun! I used it at a birthday party for a client and the next day I went to Disneyland with my family. The colors that the film produces are excellent! Using the camera at 1st can be a little tricky but just be patient and frame your shot well. I high recommend this instax camera for anyone that wants a change it up from just cell pics when going to Disneyland or hanging out with friends & family. I have tried landscape mode but I can't wait to try multi exposure and the other modes.

                          No more manual double exposure shots. Only couple clicks away!

                            This camera is a lot of fun to take to parties. It's gotten lots of compliments and questions of where to get one. I'm looking forward to using it a lot more.
