Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Review

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Pictures

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 has quickly become a favourite in the blogging world and I can understand why. In such a digital age there’s something refreshing about turning back the clock a bit. The excitement of seeing how a photo will turn out is somewhat reduced when you can see it right on your screen, probably with 20 takes of the same composition.

It’s not sleek or expensive looking (it’s exterior is plastic) but it is playful and fun. It comes in a variety of pastel colours and I love the retro design. It is however fairly bulky making it quite difficult to carry around.

The camera’s very easy to use so if you’re one of those people that generally ignores the instruction manuals (like myself) you’ll likely be just fine. It features a brightness dial that lights up to indicate which flash setting to use, which is very helpful. Other than that you just click a button and you’re good to go – much simpler than your average camera.

Picture Quality
This is probably the main reason you’re considering this camera. The pictures are beautiful. They have that slightly imperfect quality that makes them look somehow more authentic than the average high quality snap – you get that perfect Instragram filter without the effort of editing. I’ve also noticed that it makes your skin look flawless, which is always a plus.

These usually retail at about £65 but prices do vary so I’d recommend shopping around a bit to get the best deal. Film is incredibly pricy at £10 for 10 photos so that’s definitely something to consider. It’s not a camera I could afford to use often but it’s nice for special occasions.

Would I recommend this camera? Yes. I think it makes a great present and you can get some gorgeous artsy shots with it. That being said, if you're looking for a professional camera this is obviously not it and I'd definitely consider whether you're willing to be spending that much money on film. If however you're looking for a fun way to take interesting photos then this will fit the bill perfectly.
