Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

I featured this camera on one of my wishlists way back in January and kind of forgot about it but my amazing boyfriend didnt. My birthday is actually in July but he gifted me this as an early birthday present so I could take it on my holiday to Brighton. You should have seen the smile on my face when I opened it!

I really recommend this camera, above are some example polaroids. Not only does it look cute but it is so simple to use - just push the on button, adjust the lighting setting and take the photo!  I feel so tech savvy taking a photo in public with the pictures instantly printing out. My youngest niece and nephew (both 2) were so amazed when I took a photo of them, they wouldn't let it go ha ha! I am definitely planning on getting a pin board to display all of my photos because I think it would look so cute!. The camera also comes in pale blue, yellow, black and white.

One thing that I would point out is that the dial 100% has to be on the right lighting setting, this is easily done though as it is indicated which one to use by a red light but forgetful me never looks. I've had so many pictures just printing white because of this, and the film is not cheap!

Have you tried this camera?


  1. I need one of these in my life! I absolutely love Polaroid cameras and this one's so cute. You are right though - the film is not cheap at all!
