It is very easy to use, light and looks nice to your eyes. Very fun to shoot with it.

I would honestly like that the pictures were a little bigger, but I knew their size before I bought it, so it's not a big deal.

I haven't used it that much yet, and I had my doubts about the focus, but so far it's working well.

It was delivered right on time.

For its price I would totally recommend it!

Small Pictures but Fun for novice photography

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.

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

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.

      BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!!!

      By Arts&Crafts Lover

      from Texas

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

      Let me tell you that this has been the best purchase I have ever made. I'd had been contemplating if whether to buy it or not since it was a little on the pricey side at the store but I did some digging around and stumbled on Bhphoto and found an awesome deal that I couldn't pass up. It came out to $ which included the cute pastel pink camera and the 2 films (which are expensive) When I first got it I was so pleased by how everything was nicely bubbled wrapped and protected. The quality of the camera and the pictures are amazing! Especially if you're into scrapbooking or just into the feel of old fashioned pictures. I loved it, everyone in my family loved it and I even got other people purchasing one for themselves. I suggest if you're thinking about buying one to go for it because you won't regret it! ?

        By CMoney

        from Arizona

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

        Does just what you want with no issues. Awesome for a vintage looking photography. Awesome printouts. Overall a very well built camera with some range, just have to have good enough light and select the right brightness setting. After all it's not adjusting the shutter because it is a fixed shutter wich is great for steady non blurry photos that are consistent. Just do a few test shots and your ready like a pro.

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

        This Polaroid camera is a great purchase, and the camera is so fun to use (especially around kids). The image quality is good (obviously not professional level -- it's an instant film camera), but I wouldn't recommend it for action/sports etc. Watching the film develop never gets old, and the photos are fun to pass out to friends, travel companions, people you meet, etc.

        It's compact and easy to carry around, and the batteries last for ages. The only downside would be the film isn't super cheap, but if you buy the multipacks online you can usually find pretty good deals. The upside to the film price is that you'll be much more discerning on the photos you take -- snapping 20 at a time isn't an option (like you can with a digital camera/phone).

        Overall, a wonderful purchase that I do not regret at all. I would highly recommend this camera to anyone who wants to have fun taking pictures!

        I had seen this camera everywhere and wanted it! Than I found it on here in black and on sale! So I finally got it! When I received it i was pleased! It's very light weight! Bought it so I could actually have printed out memories! Great to take with you to special events! So if you're looking for a instant camera I would say this would be an excellent choice!!

        I'm absolutely in love with my mini 8! It's been fun introducing my eldest child to a part of my childhood I have missed - instant photography! The only problem was trying to keep it out of my toddler's hands when I was unboxing it :)
