The Fujifilm Instax mini 8 is point-and-shoot compact camera that generates instant photos, just like the old school Polaroid cameras. Despite its outside appearance looking like a toy, it captures a nice picture.

The The Fujifilm Instax mini 8 camera is available in five colors, And while you can’t quite fit in your pocket you could still put it in your bag or backpack and not have it weigh you down.

This is an analog camera in every way, it takes two AA batteries, and you have to use the viewfinder. Beyond that however it’s nice they can adjust the brightens settings in the front on the lens by twisting.

Features of The Fujifilm Instax mini 8

One of the main features is the five different exposure levels, from bright at F32, slightly cloudy at F22, Shady at F16, and a night shot at F12.7, there is also a high key mode to shoot photos with a lot of brightness.

Some may say the feature or a negative however there is no autofocus. The shooting range is about 0.6m to 2.7m, this means you need to get close to your subject. The flash just like old-school cameras as a reset time of about 0.2 ~ 0.6 seconds.

The film that comes out of the camera is about the size of a credit card. This is nice for taking a photo signing it and giving it to a friend on the spot.

If you’re looking to go back old school, I like to depart from the megapixel train, then The Fujifilm Instax mini 8 is a great investment. Super easy to use, with some work you can capture decent photos, and you’ll be to hit at any party you go to (no more hashtag).

Of course there is the limitations. Batteries and film are the two big ones. If you can accept that it’s going to cost you for additional film and batteries,  then again we say go for it!

On a side note, this could be a fantastic way to introduce children to the world photography. (* That’s how my parents got me into photography using the good old Polaroids back in the day).

Absolutely awesome!

I took this camera with me to Thailand and it was so nice to give a photo to someone. A woman in A small mountain village, never seen herself before and this was amazing to her. This is a well worthwhile investment if you want to make friends and break down barriers.
