Fuji Instax Mini

Being the compulsive online shopper that I am and a lover of film photography, yesterday I treated myself to the Fuji Instax Mini and I couldn't be more excited. Most of you will know all about it already but for those of you that don't the instax is an instant camera that takes high-quality credit card sized photos.

It comes in a variety of colours, including a pink version on the lomography website, but I went for the white so it can match my Diana Mini in white. Here's a few examples of the kinds of pictures it produces:

Ah I can't wait to get snapping!

And while we're on the subject of cameras, I think next on my wishlist is the biscuit shaped lomography camera from Japan:

Cute huh!

Also I got my first Diana film developed a few days ago and there are some pictures I'm quite happy with so I'll do some scanning this weekend and hopefully share them with you next week! I currently have a red scale film in that camera at the moment so it will be interesting to see how the pictures turn out.

Happy weekend x

  8. Oooh, this looks like a fun camera! And it's a lot smaller than the huge, bulky Polaroid I've got!
    Can't wait to see how your Diana pictures turned out! I've had two rolls developed from mine so far, and they both came out beautifully!

  9. yay! I love how your getting into photography now, you will have so much fun with it. One thing Ive found with the Diana Mini is it doesnt take photos in low light very well. Im trying 800ISO film to see if that helps (its more light sensitive)

    oh and I think those photos are actually from the bigger fuji camera. the mini takes ones like this ...

  15. I am seriously thinking of getting one of these for Europe. I really like the idea of taking one photo every day that tells a story of that day, then having 35 amazing memories to frame when I get home. Of course I will still have my DSLR to take a ton of photos, but polaroids are so special because they are precious - everything you photograph is so carefully planned because you don't get another change to do it over.

    Can't wait to see your Diana snaps!

  23. i want that instax mini so so badly

  24. Instax is great. I have an enormous 200 that obscures my entire face whenever I lift it up to take a picture. Unfortunately, it'll never compare to my Polaroid cameras with expired Polaroid film :(
