    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.

    I love this camera because it gives you that feeling of old time photos captured back in the 90's. Those moments you don't want to wait for develop. Don't expect to have that perfect color photos you look for in the DSLR, these are the ones you want to have to capture the feeling right then in there. Those happy moments. I take this camera with me where ever I go with my family, along with my Nikon, just so I can snap a photo of them to keep with me through the years. I cannot express how much I love this Camera.

    Camera is very easy to use and set up. I have purchased several as gifts and everyone has loved them. We also bought the more retro one for ourselves and take it out during parties, set up props, and give family/friends pictures to take home. We all take tons of photos on our phones and digital cameras but many of us dont take them to get them printed. Although the quality of photos are not as good as other cameras, they create nice little memories.

    Not the best with lighting adjustments

    I used this both indoor and outdoor and autocorrects the settings to adjust for lighting but doesn’t always auto correct to the proper setting causing very dark or ultra bright pics. It’s a cute idea and I bought it on sale so that’s why I’m giving 3 stars- for pricing and the concept. I wish I saved the pics to demonstrate for my review but they were trash so that’s where they went; in the trash.

    Best Priced and Quality Inst. Camera

    I bought this for my young adult daughter and she loves it! I kind of get a kick of how "everything old is new again". I compared the different options for instant cameras and this was the best bargain on a number of fronts: Best Price, great specs, and pretty much best priced film (which can be a forgotten benefit in the digital age.) Adding all these benefits together makes the Instax Mini 9 a superior bang for your buck.

    A fun instant camera for snapshots

    We bought this as a present for our teen daughter. She loves it and the instant prints but is surprised how fast she goes through the film (Smartphone generation). The images are as you'd expect from an instant camera but, at a 2x3 format, are nice and clear. The camera, itself, is a but chunky but okay once you get used to it. (keep your finger out of the image). It has an automatic light meter and tells you what to set a simple exposure setting at. It also comes with a snap on close-up (magnifying) lens (not macro lens).

    Nostalgic, but can be expensive

    This camera is great, especially if you grew up taking polaroids. The camera is simple in functionality and does what it is advertised to do. However, owning this camera can definitely get expensive quick. Film for the camera is pricy (you pay about $1 a picture). I use this from time to time, but with the prevelance of phone cameras, I don’t use it as much as I thought. If you plan on purchasing the camera, you have to make an effort to use it.

    This is a very nice little camera and its cute too! I only have an issue with how it does not come with a starter pack of photos. This would be great for those who purchase it and may not like it. They have to go buy photos also then be stuck with the remainder photos even if they return it. Other then that I ended up like the product even after having to purchase a set of photos for it to even try out.

    Good Camera for Teens and Tweens

    My teenage daughter received one of these cameras as a Christmas present last year and she has had a lot of fun taking pictures with family and friends. It is easy to use and there are different films you can buy for different effects. It’s nice to have an instant photo that you can actually hold and give to others. I bought the current camera for this Christmas for my niece, who is almost a teenager, and I know she is going to live it also. It’s fun for adults too, but a little complicated for younger children.

    My eight year old daughter got this for her birthday. So far she has taken several photos and all but one have come out great. It is a little tricky to get used to the viewfinder instead of the digital screen, especially for younger kids that have never used a viewfinder before, but she got it pretty quickly. It's easy to load, you just have to teach younger users about the dangers of exposing film and make sure they understand that you can't just delete photos like on digital. Once they get that, it is a lot of fun and easy.

    Bought this for my daughter's birthday gift and she loves it! It's like a Polaroid but smaller version. It's really neat, colors are amazing and the case is actually designed like a purse. Camera itself comes with wristlet strap so case is for extra protection. Thought it was nice that the mini 9 I don't know about previous but includes a lense that attaches and detaches for better selfies. It's a must for all ages. Instant film comes with 10 sheets in each pack so make sure you stock up when it's on sale

    Bought As A Gift - Buying Another For The Wife

    Bought it as a gift for my mother in law and was very impressed with the camera. The camera itself feels very solid and is easy to load with film. The photos that are produced by the camera are really good quality as well. It's a fun gift for people that like taking pictures and those that like scrapbooking (the photos are the perfect size for it). I took a star off for the poor instructions. They weren't very informative and left us having to play around with the camera for a while to figure everything out.

    This camera is awesome. I love the color and the accessories available for it. However, my daughter gets a ton of over exposed photos, especially outdoors, and under exposed with low light. I get that it’s an instant camera, but would love if there were an easier way to turn off the flash when not needed (still haven’t figured that one out), or an option for low light conditions.

    The Selfie feature is so much fun!

    So far I am enjoying my new fujifilm instax mini 9. My sister had the 8 and now they are pretty much the same when it comes to picture quality. I just enjoy the selfie mirror and my sister wishes hers had it. Other than that it is really simple to function. The settings are self explanatory, however I stick to the two outer settings. When i try to experiment with the settings in the middle the pictures do not turn out right. Film is easy to put in. Love the color. Camera is lightweight and easy to hold.

    my pre-teen daughters and niece love taking pics and using in their craft pages and wall displays. Quality isn't as good as that in your phone but for the instant mini pictures, selfies, etc and many fun accessories to be purchased separately. It can get a bit pricey. The cost of the film can also get a bit pricey. Aside from the cost, they do love it.

    Bought my niece old school camera after going to a wedding and the bride and groom had two of these cameras at the entry for folks to take photos and pin them to a display for the bride and groom. Now my niece has a tree of LED lights on her wall with family member pictures on different branches and the camera gets stored in its case on a book shelf under the tree

    Camera was delivered without an extra lens. The curior threw the box on my porch. I went to the Best Buy to get missing lens. The rep at the counter was not courteous. The oictures are ok, but the color quality is so so. I got this because I am tired of pictures that never get developed. The camera is good for a teen or young adult. I also got one for my granddaughters birthday. She had fun with it, so far it's the best gift I have given her. She is 26.

    works awesome, bought this for my wife for Christmas. She been wanting one and I decided to get one for her. She loves it, and been taking pictures left and right. Although it is nice to have mini photos printed out of the camera, but the film cartridge can be a bit expensive as you will need more than 10, wished they came in package of 20. Overall, nice gift for those who are into photography or those who just like to take pictures once in awhile for those special occasions.

    Terrible pictures and bad lens

    Posted
    FoxyFenix

    I am not sure how anyone gives a good review for this camera. It is bad all around. This was a gift for my Mom and it was an embarrassment. Small garbage quality pictures that make everything look like you are in the 18th century with candle lights and shadows. And the viewfinder/lens pushes things to the left most of the time and unfocus on most of the picture. You have to have a spotlight and do only closeups for this thing to have any value and then the pics are small anyway

    Bought the Fuji Instax for a friend's annual "every 4 years" visit so we could have some instant memories she could take home with her. Love the little thing - will def be reading tutorials on how to utilize it more efficiently, some film was wasted learning the lighting. Would recommend the camera for trips, date night, etc. Read tutorials beforehand if you're not willing to have some bad, rubbish bin photos. Otherwise click away and enjoy the process!
