    It is good for what it is.

    I bought this camera for my daughter and she absolutely loves it. Her and her friends all have one and they trade pictures to one another. The pictures are small and the quality is decent but these pictures are for trading and posting on mirrors and lockers. It is good for what it is. No more , no less. Just be mindful that this is not the camera to run around taking pictures all day with.

    Reminiscent of a Polaroid

    This nifty gadget reminds me of my old Polariod camera from years ago. The color is cute [and makes it easy to locate] and it's a useful product. The little film frames that you can buy for this camera make the photo come out with a little flare and style. Easy to use and runs off of 2 AA batteries!

    I'm giving this 5 stars because it is a great camera for what it is trying to be: a fun intro camera. There are better Fujifilm Instax products with more features, but they cost more. This is great for kids: good battery life, durable, easy to understand, and LOTS OF FUN! Everyone has a blast with this camera which makes this a great buy!

    I love this little guy. It's very fun and satisfying to use, and decorated your space with the photos is great. The camera itself is well made and responsive. I love the instant printing feature. My only gripes are that the film is extremely expensive for what you get, and figuring out how to properly use the lighting setting can be a pain for a beginner. Overall, awesome product.

    purchased this for my teenager for HS graduation as the nostalgic movement is catching on. Her friends thought it was fantastic to take groupies, selfies etc and have them printed right away. Camera itself takes decent pictures and prints are small enough to stuff in a wallet, etc.

    Purchased for my 13 year old and of course she loves it. It has poor quality pictures very dark back ground and you have to be close to object you are photographing. We went thru a pack of 10 pics trying to get better quality and its just not there. But my daughter likes the fact she can take a photo and get the print immediately.

    Purchased this for my birthday and it stopped working the following day. Super annoying because i was so happy to get it. The lighting setter part was stuck on home. Returned it to best buy and got another one (with the 15 dollar insurance I paid for it) Went home and opened it, and it had the same problem as my broken one without me even taking one picture. Super annoying and a waste of my time.

    I had wanted an instant camera FOREVER and I got this for myself as a Christmas present. I LOVE IT. I take it to almost every family gathering and I love taking pictures of my boyfriend and friends with it! It's super easy to use and the camera automatically uses the best lighting possible, which is super helpful! HIGHLY recommend!

    My daughter has wanted this for two years. I finally broke down and got her one. She loves the pink color it really pops. Inserting the film is simple and the operation is very intuitive. You don't get the same clarify that you would with a new smartphone, but the small cute picture size has been a nice novelty for her.

    This is Christmas present for my 12yo daughter—after watching Fuji 9 for weeks online (not only Best Buy) to get best deal, decided to just go into Best Buy. Easily found camera aisle and the many colors to choose from, plus the price was lowest as online stores—got color to match her dolphin cover. She’s gonna love taking pics and showing off her creativity with all of the lens options.

    Fun retro camera

    This was so easy to learn how to use, great instructions, simple operation, and sharp, crisp photos overall. The photo engages instantly, so there was no blurring. My one quibble, the photos are really small,even with the close up lens. But, I just started using the camera, so it might not be as limited as I'm presenting. Overall, this is really fun to use, and a great gift for all ages.

    Girls just love this thing. You can take it anywhere, and dont need too much experience with a camera. You do need a little skill to compose the photos. The small accessory it brings for portrait shots is a little tricky to use because of how you need to point at the subject for it to come out right on the printed image but practice helps.

    Terrible in daylight...

    We bought this camera for my daughter as a gift. She was very excited about the instant pictures. So far our experience with the camera is that it does not work in the daylight. Any photo you take comes out washed from the sun and is a total loss. We have reviewed all the manuals, settings, etc. and nothing. It is a great concept but will probably return and get something different for her.

    I believe this is a great gift for Christmas for kids who needs to get introduced to photography. Its a simple device and works perfect. You get the picture printed right out of the camera. Could be of great use when you need to capture and share a moment with friends. The only negative is the expensive film that you need to buy

    I bought this camera for my 12 year old daughter for Christmas. She loves it! It was easy to install the mini photo paper and get the hang of the different settings. She has taken tons of pictures already! It seems to be very sturdy and has held up well to being brought everywhere from parks to school to friends' houses.

    I thought 'instant picture's' wow. Won't this be nice at get togethers. Nope, The pictures are much too small and very expensive. I bought the camera for my mother and she gave it to one of her grand children after one use. The pictures were not clear for older adults. At least I tried. I thought instant pictures would be a good idea. Won't do this again.

    This was a stocking stuffer for my son who buys just about everything he wants. I was in a quandary as to what to get him until my daughter recommended this camera. My son seems to be having a lot of fun taking random pictures at friends gatherings, and it’s perfect for those fun photos taken in his outdoor spa.

    Fun camera... expensive film!

    We bought this camera for my daughter's birthday. She'd been asking for it for 2 years. Unfortunately, we learned very quickly that it's a fun camera but the film is way too expensive. If you're looking to buy this product, make sure you're ready to spend a lot on the film... and make sure that it's put in correctly or you'll end up with a bunch of black photos!

    Daughter wanted an instant camera ... I thought Polaroid went away.... For her it is perfect because it takes pictures and you can share with friends and also because it is a “cool” color. The build quality is good and for those who remember the polaroids and the shaking of the picture and the cost. It is a nostalgic piece with functionality

    The Camera is a bit big, but it is very easy to use. Warning, the camera does not come with paper, you need to buy that separately. The photos are smaller than old school polaroid cameras, but they look great. The selfie button in the front of the camera is great.
