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.

Fun Throwback

By Greg

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

this camera is definitely the cheapest way to relive the fun of instant cameras. While the image isn't nearly as big as old Polaroid 600 or Spectra films, those cameras and their film is far more costly these days. This camera makes a great gift!

My granddaughter has become the family photographer since she got her camera; she loves it. Her parents taught her to use it and that its not a toy. It was the perfect birthday gift.

Works for what we needed it for...

By Jaz

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

I manage a dog boarding facility and we're using the camera to document the items clients bring with their pets (toys, bedding, etc). I like it because it's not terribly expensive and super easy to use. The only down side is the color in the pictures are pretty dark and off. Wish it was a little better in that respect.

Great Gift for my 11 Year Old Daughter!

By Beth Leety

from Undisclosed

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

Easy to order & pay, Fast, free delivery. Daughter loves it! Different than the Polaroid of my childhood-photos are smaller but so is the camera & film packet. We shopped it around and BHPhoto had the best prices as well as accessories to go with it-also purchased extra film, a mini photo album, & and a camera case - highly recommend all!

Great Experience with Customer Service

By Mimi

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

I purchased two Mini 8's for my two granddaughters. One of them was DOA on Christmas morning. I contacted B&H the day after Christmas. Quick answer of my call, very professional and knowledgeable. I requested a different camera, it was a little more expensive than the one I had originally purchased, and was given that item at no additional cost. My 6 year old granddaughter was a little impatient, however, I didn't have to pay for any of the shipping and the new device arrived in less than two weeks. My granddaughter is very happy with the new Mini 8. Thank you so much for a great experience.

Novelty Camera

By Morgan

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

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

I've had this camera for about a week now and have taken 5 shots with it. The exposure meter is a bit off in sunlight settings, most of my pictures came out too light. It's an easy fix, just move the exposure to one setting darker. In the end, it's a novelty camera, and is great at being just that.

Fun camera but lighting can be an issue

By Natasha

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

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

This product is used in both indoors and outdoors. I feel like the product has lighting issues when indoors and your subject is not close to the camera/flash. However, this is what it used to be like back when the first instant photo cameras came out on the market. It that sense nothing much has changed. I do like that there are different lighting settings for different situations.

Fantastic new toy

By Rammiegirl

from New York, NY

Verified Buyer

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

I like the color even though I know it may get a little dirty over time.

The one thing that I don't like is how it uses AA batteries. I'm used to having a lithium ion which lasts so much longer and is better for the environment. However, maybe with rechargeable AA batteries, this might not be so much of an issue.

The camera is very easy to use. The directions are simple to follow and it's great to have around for guests or parties. The film is quite expensive so I would use it sparingly but it's great to really force the photographer to focus on the shot. So much of photography these days can be edited. It's great to get a way to just get your hands on an actual photograph. Love that old school feel.
