“But I just have my phone to take photos.” Yeah, I hear you, but where is the fun in that?
An instant film camera brings a little excitement and unpredictability into taking pictures without getting caught up in the technical aspects of photography – for the most part, they are easy to pick up and play. Most importantly though, the charming and endearing feeling of holding a picture of loved ones in your hand will never be beaten by a digital image in your phone.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 11
The everyday instant camera and must-have for every household – available in a range of colours and coloured film so you can match your mood. Technically, the inbuilt high-performance flash automatically picks up background brightness and adjusts the shutter speed without having to change any settings.
Fujifilm Instax SQ1
Fit more of your world onto your pictures with the SQ1. Instax has made a square camera for those bigger moments. Having a larger print area also means that there is a richer depth of field, meaning more focus on your subject. There is also an advanced selfie mode to combat the minimum focus distance found on other instant cameras.
Fujifilm Instax Mini Link Smartphone Printer
Remember all those photos in your phone we spoke about earlier? Well, now there’s a hard copy solution.
There is something special about holding a physical photograph in your hand – it’s tangible, sentimental, and permanent. The Mini Link isn’t an instant camera, it’s an instant printer, meaning you can print any of the photos you have in your smartphone on real Instax film for that authentic look.
If you want to jazz up your film, there are different printing options in the included app’s ‘Fun Mode” that will help make the most of your Instax prints.
Polaroid Now i-Type Instant Camera
Just like the Polaroid cameras used in the ’70s, the current evolution of Polaroid’s Now series still has a distinct vintage feel to it. The camera produces vibrant colours, has great autofocus specs for clarity, and a subtle flash to avoid blowing out your images with artificial lighting – a moment maker if you’ve ever seen one.
