I purchased this camera as a gift to myself. It arrived in a neat box and upon unpackaging it I instantly fell in love with it. I think part of it's charm is it's wonderful pastel pink color, all though the other colors look nice PINK will always be best. After using it with some super cute films and taking a few instant photos I realized it is actually a pretty decent camera for an instant one.
There are so many things to get with this camera such as awesome printed films, zoom in's and cute bags for it.
The only downside is the price of the film in my opinion. The film is rather pricey and can cost upto a £1 a photo which is ridiculous.
Perfect for a birthday or Christmas gift to someone who loves quirky cool things. Perfect for holidays. Perfect for art projects.
I also have written a post on my blog about this camera with photos of me unboxing it, and photos of the contents. Feel free to check that out also - http://www.pasteldreamsandrainbowskies.co.uk/2015/02/my-fabulous-new-camera-fujifilm-instax.html
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is really good. It takes really good quality pictures and is really good fun. I really love it! only thing is that the film is expensive and runs out quickly. Apart from that its great! Darcey Gallagher
My favorite investment. Cute, girly and perfect for travel. There is a matte finish to my Pink camera and easy settings/dials near the lense. Very easy to use and great quality of pictures. The Polaroids that fit in this camera are not wide however there is a wide enough angle in the camera to be captured and saved. The pictures are literally instant and its great to have something old-school this day and age. Especially in different forms and colours.
It would make a great present to anyone. Even those who like professional photography would love to use this simple yet intelligent item.
I love this camera, was easy to set up, need to play around a bit for the light set up, but minus that is easy to use. Pictures have come out good and I am happy with the quality. Light weight and easy to use, great for getting instant memories :)
I bought this for my girlfriend as a present, she loves it. She takes it on every trip she goes on and she uses it at parties. She has found it difficult to find a good case though. The magnetic ones didn't seem to close properly with the camera in it and the others seem to be more like a bumbag. The camera it self is fun, easy to use and cool
