They say, “be in the moment,” and yet we spend half our lives starting into our phones, snapping thousands of pictures that we later have to scroll through endlessly to find again. Is it any wonder, then, that retro instant camera photos are the best way to both stay present and also have a tangible reminder of life’s most precious memories?
For an adorable, slim, lightweight and inexpensive Polaroid-type camera option, Fujifilm’s Instax Mini 8 is perfect to slip in a pocket or purse and take with you everywhere you go. Just point, shoot and voila – you’ve got cute credit card-sized photos that develop on the spot to have, hold and share.
If you’re worried about shooting the perfect pictures, fear not: built into the Instax Mini 8 is automatic exposure measurement, which tells you when you need to make an easy manual adjustment to the dial. There’s also a new High-Key mode so you can take a classic Polaroid-type shot – brighter images with a soft look, plus the camera also has light/dark and indoor/outdoor settings. And if you’re a selfie fan, the Instamax Mini 8 comes with a mirror on its front. Film is inexpensive, which makes it a great buy all around.
Whether it’s your wedding, a party, holiday gift or no special occasion other than a regular day, Fujifilm’s Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera is a fun and easy way to capture the precious moments of your life.
