The Fujifilm Instax Mini

Ever since I was little I've wanted a Polaroid camera. I went abroad for the first time on a family holiday when I was 10 and vividly remember a girl I met having one and I almost died of jealousy - I mean seriously, a camera that prints your photos out instantly?! Anyway they kind of died out didn't they and almost disappeared from the scene, but that didn't stop me wanting one. So when I came across this little beauty, I knew I had to get my little hands on it and I am in love. 

The Fujifilm Instax Mini is the cutest little camera I've ever seen. It's the perfect size for slipping into your bag so you can just capture the moment whenever you want and get the photo instantly. Photos from this just turn out so much more natural - there's no posing or "wait I look like a goat lets delete it" moments (we all know how often that happens with a digital camera!) and the effect on the photos themselves has a real vintage feel. I LOVE it. 

The camera comes in at £69.99 which I think is a fantastic price as that also includes 20 shots. After that the film is £14.99 for 20 which also isn't bad - just imagine how great this will be when travelling?! As you can see, I've been a bit snap happy these past few weeks with this and my dogs must be absolutely sick to death of me by now! I'm still not over the novelty of the photos printing out immediately - waiting 11 years for one of these babies was so worth it!

  1. I've wanted this camera for ages! Never gotten round to getting myself one though... As a kid, my dad had a polaroid camera and I thought it was amazing, my love for it never really died even though the cameras disappeared! I much prefer prints to digital when it comes to storing memories. I always get a big load printed off my phone/camera at Asda every few months, haha!

  28. I love Polaroids! I got the Instax Mini 90 and I love it! Although, I don't use it as much as I should, it's definitely something nice to have and you have the picture on your hands instead of just looking at it on the screen of your phone. :)
