The Most Popular Instant Camera: Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

What can be more hipsterish than an old-school Polaroid camera? We know what - its tiny version! More of a charming accessory than a professional photo gadget, an instant mini camera can still be a decent gift for anyone who loves capturing memories instantly, or for kids who can’t handle the ‘real’ camera yet. In our modern era of everything digital, we almost forgot how pleasant it is to have photo albums with memories in print. Oh, and besides, the small instant photos can be used in creative interior design:)

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is one of the most popular instant film cameras around. This quirky-looking camera can capture credit-card-sized prints using the manufacturer's proprietary film, usually sold in packs of ten. It has an optical viewfinder, available auto exposure mode, and built-in flash and a bunch of settings based on the light conditions. These are indoors, cloudy, sunny cloudy and bright sunny. The camera signals the recommended aperture setting with a flashing LED. This helps capture a perfect photo every time.

Once you’ve configured your camera, you can focus by looking through the viewfinder and click away. The printed photo comes out in a few seconds. Don’t panic when you see a blank print in the beginning, your picture will soon start to appear.

What is really great about Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is that it is pretty easy to use and when you manage to get the right settings, your pictures will have the Instagram-filter quality. In addition to this, Fujifilm added a new High-Key mode, which helps create bright pictures with a soft look - perfect for portraits!

Fujifilm Instax Mini comes in a variety of colours - white, pink, blue, black, yellow, grape & raspberry.
