Fuji Instax Mini 8 Polaroid Camera Review

In this digital age it seems like all of my photographic memories are either stored on my phone or computer and they never really make it off.

That’s why I’m such a fan of instant cameras.

It’s nice to actually have something you can hold in your hands and admire/display.

So when I saw this adorable Fuji camera a while back I instantly knew I had to have it.

I mean look at all the cute colors!

I’m normally a pink girl, but there was just something so cheerful about the yellow one that I decided to go with it and I’m glad I did.




Features simple exposure adjustment, automatic flash, automatic feed, and easy portability with a pop-out + collapsible lens.

Produces super high photo quality.

Includes a camera strap, instruction manual, and a built-in lens cover.

Comes with a 1-year warranty and takes Fujifilm Instax Mini Film.

Film not included.



I’ve taken it everywhere with me lately from the theme parks to the beach literally everywhere and I’m in love….yes with a camera haha.

Maybe it’s because I collect vintage polaroids and this camera reminds me a lot of those who knows.

All I know is that it takes beautiful images and I love having it on me at all times.

Now I’ll actually have photo albums full of memories to look back on one day.

The only negative about this camera is the film isn’t exactly cheap.

A pack of 20 images goes for around $24.00.

But like artist Patti Smith says….

“Polaroid by its nature makes you frugal. You walk around with maybe two packs of film in your pocket. You have 20 shots, so each shot is a world.”

Oh and speaking of film….

There are so many cute film choices available for this camera.

Just search ebay I’ve seen Hello Kitty, Minnie Mouse, Neon frames, etc.

Lots of fun accessories for it as well like the ones below.

Camera Retails for : $100.00 at Urban Outfitters, Amazon, Michaels, etc.

So tell me are you a fan of instant cameras?

I’d love to hear from you.
