    Great instant camera for memories

    It is a great beginner instant camera. You get what you pay for which means if you were to buy the expensive one you will get more features. I like the new colors and the mirror which comes in very handy for selfies. I haven't used the fish eye lens yet but hope that will be enjoyable as well. The sensor is very sensitive, hence it's a sensor lol but be careful of spontaneous light change that can cause your photos to be too bright or two dark. This camera is good for once in a lifetime moments to be captured and dated on the white section of each film. Why I didn't give this 5 stars? Well I think the sensor can be nicer at sometimes. It could be simply my human error but we'll see. Stay shooting!

    this instant camera is the best, beats mini 7 or 8 or other brands,. best features is why, includes close up lens, strap, and adjustable flash in addition to it suggesting it, also has feature for interior low light settings to allow camera to take photo "lighter " with more light, just be careful of setting before snap, these are instant photos which $ add up, also lens recesses automatically, doesnt have a lens cap which can be lost, or nothing which can scratch lens. nice neutral colors and nice mod colors available to suit needs for all. pictures come out great!!

    I bought it for my daughter. She loved it, because it is great the fact that she can print the photo right away whenever she wants. Sometimes we don't have a second chances in life and it is important to print it right away, and sometimes we are in Brasil visiting family and we can just give the pictures to my family and my parents love it. I just wish the film could be cheaper so we could print more ofter, and you have to be careful to not take photos in dark places because the pictures don't turn out very nice. Other than that very nice one.

    Do Not Buy

    My daughter received this instant camera from “Santa” this year. To say the very least do not buy this camera. Every single picture we have taken (at least 30) have all come out extremely dark or you can even see what it was that we took a picture of! There were such great reviews and experiences and Ours was nothing like we expected it to be. Day, night, inside, outside, up close, multiple lights... all pictures come out dark and barely visible. The flash does not turn off... ever. Waste of money and a very disappointing Christmas was had.

    Camera for a seven year old

    My 7 year old granddaughter loves to take pictures on my smartphone and has become a great little photographer. I wanted to give her a camera to inspire her to become an even better little photographer. So I picked this one. I loved how it is small, portable, and will instantly reward her with a photo of her very own in seconds. Shipping was very fast, free with a minimum amount, and this product was reasonably priced. Since it is for Christmas, she hasn't got to use it yet. However, reading the reviews online for it- it seems that I have picked a winner!

    Great little camera for instant pictures

    I gave the Instax Mini 8 to one of my daughters. My other daughter loved it so much, she wanted the Instax Mini 9. The Mini 9 is a nice inexpensive cameras that provide on demand prints in color, black and white and landscape formats (depending on the media you purchase) for it. Younger as well as older "kids" will love it. The great thing about taking a picture and pulling out picture is knowing that it IS the original and it is not digital, so when you give the picture to somebody it is extra special. One improvement that could have been added would have been a tripod mount, other than that it is a great little camera.

    Cheap, easy to use, but pic quality just OK

    The low price and sparse controls make this camera easy to decide to pick up and use. However, controlling the exposure isn't very accurate and at least 50% of my photos are either too washed out or too dark. This is despite the light sensor that indicates what the ideal exposure setting should be--sometimes the indicated setting is worse than a different setting. With that being said, people love the idea of the instant camera and it's definitely fun. Overall I would say this is a fun toy but I wouldn't use it as my only camera, even for casual events--phone cameras are much better quality.

    I AM OBSESSED with my PINK INSTAX POLAROID CAMERA!!!!!! IT’S LIKE AN OLD FASHIONED POLAROID CAMERA, BUT BETTER!!!!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT FOR TRAVEL USE OR SPECIAL EVENT USE AS IT HAS A MAGNIFYING ATTACHMENT & A STRING THAT ATTACHES TO THE SIDE SO YOU CAN WEAR IT ON YOUR WRIST. EASY DIRECTIONS TO FOLLOW TOO. MAKE SURE TO BUY ENOUGH FILM AS THERE IS ONLY 10 PRINTS TO A PACK ... I BOUGHT 4 WHEN I BOUGHT MY INSTAX IN ADDITION TO THE CASE FOR IT, WHICH COMES APART AND CAN BE WORN AROUND THE NECK. H I G H L Y R E C O M M E N D!!!!!!

    This instant camera is absolutely perfect. I use it for family gathering, special events for work and just for fun. It's a little bulky, but not too big. I love the accessories you can purchase for the Fuji film cameras. I bought the blue, so glad I waited for more colors. The price of film is a decent for the type of camera this is. You instantly get a picture. No need to wait anymore to go to a store and get pictures developed. I also purchased the fujifilm printer. Works amazing also, for those moments you can't bring your camera with you. It uses the same film as this camera. Such an awesome buy, im so satisfied and it's user friendly!

    Excellent for 13 year old

    I bought this for my 13 year old granddaughter for Christmas. She absolutely loves it. She is too young to remember the old Polaroid cameras that spit out the instant pictures. She enjoyed printing her own photo and watching it develop before her eyes. Picture quality is good. The camera is easy to operate. The film just pops right in. (Film is not cheap—roughly about a dollar for each pic, unless you buy in large quantities—so be prepared for the gift that keeps on giving). Best Buy was the best price and availability at the time I bought (right before Christmas). I found inexpensive case on Amazon.

    Does what it has to do

    Overall, the camera does what it has to - take nostalgia-evoking polaroids every time. However, there were some quirks that were slightly unappealing. First off, the placement of the capture button is awkward, you almost have to wrap your finger around the camera to be able to reach it. Second, it is quite large meaning that having a case is the best way to keep it portable. Lastly, and this might be a one-off thing but, the dial which switches between different modes seems to not work properly. I intend to take it into Geek Squad to get it looked at so I'll update on this situation.

    The first one I brought had a faulty shutter. Had to go to my local Best Buy to get a new one. And they did give me a new one, so Kudos to the staff at the Woodland Park, NJ Best Buy. And the faulty shutter is no fault of Best Buy, but it is something to keep in mind. When it does work, pictures are alright but can be washed out, especially if you're taking photos indoors. In that case photos can be too exposed or not at all. Despite this, it is a nifty, quirky little camera anyone can have fun with.

    Instant Pictures are expensive

    This is a fun camera. It works well. You can take selfies with it and it is easy for my eight year old to use. The color is cute and the design seems pretty durable. The disadvantage is that the film is expensive and not all pictures were successfully developed with more than 1/2 a package worth having difficulties. So fun gift but each print will cost about $1.00 if it is a successful print. More if there is some failure.

    GREAT IMPROVEMENT FROM THE 7

    This Christmas i bought the 7 mini i was happy with it and thought it was a fine camera but after seeing this one at best buy i thought to myself maybe ive made the wrong decision so i picked this guy up the very same day and i dont regret it, i returned the 7 mini after seeing the improvements this has made from it, the button as opposed to puilling the camera out to turn it on the light meter to show the recommended lighting setting. This i think is the most ideal instant camera there is a new one and as long as you dont NEED square pictures i think this guy will do the trick

    FUN LITTLE CAMERA

    I had the chance to use this camera at work, setting up a Valentine's Day photo booth of sorts for the kids I work with. I thought it would be fun for them to be able to take a photo home without having to incorporate computers and printers. Enter the Fujifilm Instax Mini 9. It is durable, easy to use, and the pictures, although small, have bright color and clarity. It was my first time using it and the helpful hints in the handbook made for perfect pictures shot after shot. The kids and their parents were thrilled with them. I highly recommend this fun little camera

    I purchased this camera about a week ago for my daughter to compliment her creativity and more so because her older sister has one and man am I glad I did. While the film can be expensive, the purchase of this camera was to get my children to learn how to capture the moment and again for the creativity side of their minds away from tablets and video games. Execellenr purchase as my daughter is happier than ever snapping shots of random things and posting the pictures on her board. Simplicity at its best!

    This camera was a gift for my daughter (age 9), it is perfect for selfies, a little hard for a beginner but we knew that going in. The camera was shipped and came well packaged and undamaged. Comes with wrist strap, close up lens, and batteries. We have gone through 3 packages of film since Christmas and not had to change batteries. Recommend by a bulk pack of film to get use to the camera, lighting, etc. especially if it is for a younger person. Overall it was exactly what we expected after reading many reviews and talking to others with the same camera.

    New Take on a Classic Camera

    The Fujifilm - instax mini 9 Instant Film Camera in Ice Blue is a great camera, especially for kids ages 7-12. The camera itself is easy to hold and use and comes with a carrying/safety strap for around the neck. I don't love that you push the front of the camera to close it and turn it off, but it's not a terrible thing. The pictures can sometimes be a little grainy...more so when the flash is used in really dark areas. In daylight, pictures tend to come out great and really clear. Replacement film is a bit pricey.

    Good purchase for fun

    This camera is a good purchase just for fun. For about $50, you get to have an ‘instant’ camera which is good when hanging out with friends. This camera isnt for those who take taking pictures seriously though. You can’t adjust the lighting too much nor actually center the subject perfectly. But overall, I think for $50, it is a good purchase. The only downside is how expensive it is to refill the film packs. It’s about $1 per film.
