I love the Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera! I love watching the photo appear and I love having an actual photo instead of just having a digital file. I use the camera to capture moments that I otherwise might not have captured otherwise. It makes me slow down and not just snap a picture every chance I get, since there are a limited amount of photos.

Kids love this camera and the film that prints out no printing or waiting (well 2 min for the picture to take shape. The pictures are way too small for a serious photographer. I only gave it 3 stars because of the picture size. The old polaroid cameras 2 to 3 time the size.

Wish the material this is made out of is more sturdy. Feels a bit like a child's toy. Love otherwise though. Coloring is amazing.

I would be this product again

By Shannon

Comments about instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera (Blue):

We bought our teenage daughter this for her birthday. She loves it. It is still just as fun to get an instant picture as it was years ago! The pictures are small, like a business card, but nice quality. Sometimes it is a bit difficult to get the lighting right, but she is figuring that out as she takes more pictures. The film is a bit expensive. Overall though, it is a fun and unique way to take and share pictures instantly.

A Precious Piece of Photography Equipment

By Marzipan

from Belleville, MI

Verified Buyer

Comments about instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera (Yellow):

I was so excited to get this camera in the mail! I love the bubbly design of the product, as well as the ease of use. One note, is that flash is always on, so keep that in mind when taking pictures in lower lighting.
The only thing is that the film can get expensive. (I highly suggest buying in bulk.) But I find polaroids are meant for capturing wonderful unique moments, not taking a hundred pictures of any thing. So the camera works just perfectly for that.

Comments about instax mini 8 Instant Film Camera (Pink):

I love my fujifilm instax mini 8 camera! I was nervous about ordering it online from a company I've never heard of. My order came quicker than expected. Product packaging was very good. I purchase the pink one and a box of 20 instax film. Prices are excellent compared to my local retailers!!! I would definitely order from this company again. Product works awesome!

Kid loved it, like an old Polaroid to us older people. I just worry the film gets expensive and it will get put aside quickly. But for that one wow moment, it worked.
