Fujifilm Instax mini 8





























I've wanted one of these for sooo long, and luckily enough for me; a few weeks a go I got one for my birthday! I absolutely love the whole concept of these cameras, and the fact that within a few minutes you have fully developed photograph in your hand rather than a digital one on your phone. I love the little retro look of this camera, and it comes in some lovely colours (pink, yellow, white, black; you name it!).

Despite the film working out at around £1 per photograph, which as pricey as it sounds, luckily for us they come in packs of ten and you can easily scout around on amazon for bulk film which works out slightly cheaper. Each photo is the size of a credit card, and has a slight effect on them making them even more appealing! The camera itself even tells you automatically what setting you should have on, although my photos don't give it justice, it actually has little lights above the lens which turn on to indicate which setting is the best to use!

I absolutely love this nostalgic form of photography and love the whole concept of the photo printing out straight away so you can keep it forever! Have you got one of these?

  15. I have one and it's pink! Our family owns it now, we got it for free from this good deal with a company our dad was working with, so I felt like that's really lucky for us! I love the camera, I love just the whole idea of taking polaroids (the shaking too haha) Xoxo
