I have been wanting an instant camera for awhile now and after seeing my friend's "INSTAX MINI 25 CAMERA" I knew I had to get one. This camera is sleek and small unlike the new Polaroid (which is clearly a copy of the older version of this Fuji Instax camera). The film is the best part- it takes such great, clear and sharp pictures. Everyone who loves Fuji films would not be disappointed. I have used this camera at parties and everyone falls in love with the camera and the quality of the pictures. You will also love the little mirror feature in front of the camera for when you want to take pictures of yourself. I would recommend this instant camera to everyone. You will definately not regret this purchase. Also FYI, B&H offers the best deal for this camera and the films. [...]

This is a decent instant camera, but it has some issues. The worst is that the view finder is so small, my eyelashes actually get in the way and make it difficult for me to see what I'm framing. It's super frustrating.

Other than that it works about like advertised. The quality of the pictures are reminiscent of polaroid 600, and i actually like the small, thin size of the photos.

the flash seems to dramatically overpower and wash out self-portraits.

It's a fun little camera, but I can't wait until the impossible project is producing color film for my sx-70.

        Great camera for the teen that has everything. The camera is user friendly and has a "selfie" button as well. The film is easy to install and overall great quality photographs for that instant reward.

            Comments about Fujifilm instax mini 25 Instant Film Camera (White):

            This was actually the second time I bought one. The first broke -- the lens wouldn't stay open unless forced, at which point it still wouldn't engage the shutter. I didn't handle the first too carefully so it might have gotten a bit banged up during travel. (Even though it feels like a toy made with this light plastic, I would be a bit more careful with it!)

            I bought a second because I had a good bit of film left and the camera takes really great photos with such little effort! It's great for parties -- everyone loves to take home a great shot. The film is a bit expensive but it's worth having the one-of-a-kind memories.

              We ordered the camera to use at my daughter's wedding. Guests were asked to take a photo of themselves or a friend, affix their photo in a custom memory book and write a message to the bride and groom. The camera worked perfectly, was easy to load and easy to use. Our guests had a lot of fun taking and sharing their pictures. The pictures are adorable - reminiscent of the old Polaroids but much smaller. My daughter and her husband have enjoyed viewing the pictures in their memory book.

              Just got this camera after researching which model to get. B&H had the best deal on it. Its the perfect size to keep in my purse and has different settings and a flash. Also came with a lens attachment. The pictures are a cute credit card size. I couldn't be more happy with my instax mini 25.

                I got this as a gift for my boyfriend and we both love it! The pictures come out great and looks very unique!! I do have to say, the Polaroids look much better in a darker room and while using flash. Also, I'm not sure if this should happen, since it does have a flash on or off mode, but when you don't use flash the pictures develope very dark and non existent and some develope black, which is a total waste of film! Another issue is the whole 'selfie' thing. Pictures just come out strange looking and way too close, I'd suggest having someone take the picture for you instead. Other than those very minimal cons, the camera itself is great! I'd most definitely buy again and I'm definitely snatching one for myself!
                If your looking into buying a digital polaroid, as I was, I would recommend this camera instead. Although with a digital, if you don't like the picture you can retake it without wasting film, the Polaroids turn out like a regular picture printed on a polaroid looking film and doesn't look like a real polaroid should.
