Creativity is definitely associated with instant film cameras.
My family and I even used a vintage instant film camera to shoot our Christmas card last year.
The cool thing about modern day instant film is your get to use your creative vibe, and the results are much better photos than in years past.
This is the Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 Film Camera.
This camera is so stinkin’ cute. It’s very light, and has this curvy minimalist feel to it.
The Instax Mini 25 comes with and uses 2 cr2 batteries, which help contribute to it’s lightweight size. It also boasts two shutter buttons. One on top, and another on front accompanied by a small mirror for self portraits. Such a cool idea!
The Mini Instax takes 2.13″ x 3.4″ sized photos, averaging around .70 cents a print, depending on where you purchase film. The camera itself retails for $125, but currently can be purchased on Amazon for around $83 here. Paper packs for the Fijifilm Instax can also be purchased on Amazon for about $14 for 20 prints here.
My favorite part of this camera is the itty bitty macro filter that comes with it. I have mentioned before that kids tend to naturally take photos up close, so this is a great feature if your kids want a turn taking photos.
I have talked with friends in the past about the expense of instant camera prints. Impressively, Fujifilm has finally made instant photos affordable. (If you have ever bought vintage instant paper on eBay like me, you know how ridiculously expensive it can be.) You also have to remember, these photos are definitely one of a kind. They always seem to evoke creativity in whomever is holding the camera. I let my kids have a turn and I just love the images they captured.
Thanks Fujifilm for letting me try out this adorable camera! To learn more about the Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 go here.
