FUJI INSTAX mini 8, a review
On each table there was a different colored camera for guests to take pictures with. Lucky for me my table's camera was "Grape" and it matched my outfit...and glasses.
The FUJI INSTAX takes cute little credit card sized pictures in the old Polaroid camera style. Young people who never got to experience the instant gratification of the old Polaroid cameras, and mostly view their pics by passing around their cell phones are enamored by this new device.
Oldsters like myself can appreciate the design and retro feel of this endearing camera. It's was a hit at the party where we all INSTANTLY made mini scrapbooks to leave for our host and hostess. A very clever idea!
The cameras is a really simple point and shot item with a few self explanatory selections on the side; a house, a cloud, a sun, a brighter sun and a setting called Hi-Key (to be explored).
Select your setting, it lights up (pictured). Then point, shot and listen for the tiny surprise to pop out of the top!
At home I tried a couple of shots in the garden. Here are my mini pictures with space to write below the picture. Just like the old days!
The clarity and detail are great. The colors, pretty darn good. Cuteness factor 100%. I should have placed a coin here for size. The whole shot measures 3 1/4 x 2 1/8. About the size of a business card.
Available in many delicious colors the FUJI INSTAX MINI 8 sells for about $70.
