I actually bought this camera about two years ago for my ex boyfriend so I knew what it was like, but wanted to wait until I tested it out myself to decide how to review it.
So it is a fantastic camera, the film is pretty cheap (you don’t get any when ordering this camera so make sure you purchase it additionally) and the reason I chose this camera over the Instax is primarily because of the use of a SD card. If you don’t have film you can still take images which is amazing, and if you lose the photograph you know you have a copy saved to the SD card. This camera has three different filter types; normal, black and white and sepia, you can set a timer (10 seconds) and choose whether you want a classic Polaroid frame on the image.
Very easy to use and arrived pre charged so no need to wait until the battery is charged up.
It also notifies you if you have the lense cap on after you take a shot so you don’t waste paper.
The two things I don’t particularly like is this;
1. The view finder is way off, rather than using that I just recommend thinking about where the lens is and level it with your desired focal point.
2. You can’t choose whether or not you want the flash to go off. I’ve found that covering the flash with your finger works well however I feel that there should be a button to decide if you want a forced flash.
Other than that you can take some great nostalgia-like photos, it looks amazing and the film is also a sticker! Also love how there’s a fitting for you to attach a tripod which has come in very handy!
