About the Product
To use, simply snap, print, and share your photos - that's it! Take it on the go so you can send friends and family home with pictures of their own within minutes. The film counts down like a disposable camera so you know how many pictures are left before you change the film.
The new, compact INSTAX Mini 8 color models preserve the ease of use and attractive design elements of the existing INSTAX Mini series. At the same time, the Mini 8 cameras offer new features and enhancements. You will instantly notice a slimmer and lighter body. The INSTAX Mini 8 is approximately10% smaller than the Mini 7S in volume ratio. It is now even easier for the consumer to carry around an INSTAX with them everywhere. The new INSTAX Mini 8 features automatic exposure measurement. The camera signals the recommended aperture setting with a flashing LED light and the user can manually adjust the dial to the recommended setting. This helps the user capture the perfect photo every time. A new High-Key mode is available on the INSTAX Mini 8 cameras.

What customers say about "Features"
Polaroid PIC-300 Instant Film Camera
  • Easy to reload, and for most people, should be self explanatory.
  • Worked pretty well in low-light situations.
  • Flash worked well, and there were multiple camera settings (though a little hard to figure out without reading small print).
  • The flash is good with an auto adjustment so I am not too worried about the flash.
  • Film pack only holds about 10 pics, so refilling the camera occurs frequently.
  • Pictures are too small & poor quality.
Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera
  • Have physical copies of pictures
  • Battery lasts a long time, still haven't had to replace it
  • Flash is surprisingly good for indoor photos
  • Has 3 different camera modes: lighten, darken, and normal.
  • Tends to look best with a horizontal shot, but you can turn the camera for a vertical shot.
  • Slow to warm up
  • Small photo size
