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.

A well made plastic build quality. Lens resolution similar to polaroid, not great. If taking portraits, use macro mode to fill head and shoulders shot, use flash on a tripod and image quality will be at it's best for the lens. Exposure system seems to be reasonable good. film image is small as described but still gives that polaroid magic look, grainless and nostalgic at the same time. like the size of the camera and the additional features like bulb exposure. Can use a light meter to get close to proper long exposure using 800 ISO and aperture of lens, thus timing your seconds of bulb exposure. Still like the instant image mojo

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

    A Polaroid was my first camera and this little fella has brought me back to that initial love. The Neo Classic is surprisingly light and really straight forward to use. The viewfinder isn't 100% of what is actually captured so you have to account for that when composing but the camera is nonetheless a delight to use. The battery lasts and lasts and the film really isn't that expensive if you buy in bulk (BH has the best deal with 50 shots for thirty dollars by far) It works out to be about 0.60 a shot which for anyone who has shot film knows, isn't that bad. The build quality is very good and the Neo Classic has a very different feel to the Mini 70 which my girlfriend has and loves. I am planning on collecting all the different cameras in the instax line-up since the film works among them all and the offer different features.

    For photographers and tourists the no-flash setting that the Neo Classic offers is crucial for museums and other settings where flash is not allowed- I cannot stress how helpful it is. The party setting is also really useful. The Neo classic is more than worth its pricetag.

    The camera does what it's supposed to do, it's fun and easy to use. Also easy too travel around with. The only thing is, it doesn't come with film so you gotta buy some separately.

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

    This little camera is worth the money after the first shot! It is fun, quick, and produces adorable images of everything you point it at. My family has had many a laugh already just figuring out the settings and enjoying the immediate little polaroid. I can't wait to hand my clients little polaroids for mementos during shoots. I love love love it, and buying it through B&H was a breeze. It came within the week ready to go.

      I am amazed with the price of this camera! Fujifilm intstant cameras don't come with the best instructions to begin operating, however there's a ton of guidelines to look up on the Internet to help start you with this product. Overall I am super happy with my purchase!

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

      Got this camera for a close friend of mine. He's a photography fanatic. Owns several SLRs/lenses, but now when we go out, he carries this little camera! Looks like a vintage camera. Very easy to handle. Watching the photos develop is the best part. This camera is made for short distance pictures, it's very difficult to focus at a distance. But that's hardly a limitation!

      I use it for everyday photographs, but primarily for traveling. Its convenient to use and with a rechargeable battery I never have to worry about the camera dying. I wish it could carry more than 10 pictures at a time.

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

          Such a cute little gimmick camera that kicks out old school Polaroid-type pics. The camera is very easy to use. Love the vintage look. Rechargeable battery and easy to follow instructions. Several options to ensure better pics. You get the "filtered" look of Instagram photos in a cute little shot. B&H honored another competitors price and ship it quickly so I could have it in time for holiday parties. Upsides: easy to use, cute vintage look, light weight. Downsides: the film is expensive (over $1 per shot). Pics are small (credit card size).
          Very happy with this purchase.
