    Top comment

    "Awesome Camera...Excellent and worth it over the other Polaroid cameras because of the amazing autofocus, manual controls, and the filter thread for 3rd party filters if you wanted that option. ...This camera is not a run and gun shooter. It shines in manual mode but for those times when you want to throw it in auto you need to learn the camera and how to use the exposure comp in different lighting. "

    Product Description

    Unleash your artistic flair by creating one-of-a-kind, attention-grabbing instant photos as unique as you are with the INSTAX MINI 99 instant camera. This premium instant camera lets you capture photos in their true, analog format. Six awe-inspiring Color Effect settings let you fuel your creative freedom (they’re all powered by color-changing LEDs located inside the camera). Plus, one normal setting lets you keep things ‘real’. Next, it’s all about the Shooting Modes. From Bulb to Indoor, Double Exposure to Sports, there’s five to choose from and they’re easy to switch between. It’s also worth noting that the INSTAX MINI 99 instant camera offers five levels of brightness: “L+” for the brightest exposure, “D-“ for the darkest. In between you’ll find “L”, “D”, and “N” if you’re looking for standard brightness levels.When it comes to powering up, simply turn the Lens dial. Stop at ‘3.0m to ∞’ (Landscape) for distances, ‘0.3m to 0.6m’ (Macro) for close ups and selfies, or ‘0.6m to 3.0m’ (Standard) for everything in between. Want to deepen the look? Use the Manual Vignette switch to narrow the lens aperture for a powerful artistic look. Want to alter the tone? Take control of the flash function to match the look you envision.Its classic camera style makes the INSTAX MINI 99 instant camera great to look at, and the stunning matte black finish with sleek dials and buttons gives an incredible, tactile quality. The two identical Shutter buttons help you switch from Portrait to Landscape orientation for those must-have shots. And along with a handy tripod mount (tripod sold separately), this instant camera comes with a precision-milled Base Grip with Tripod Mount that also acts as a grip when attached to the camera. We’ve crafted every surface, edge, corner (and feature) of this camera to perfection, leaving you to do what you do best - capturing one-off shots, your way.

    "With a regular Polaroid camera, it can be difficult to capture the right picture and I find myself wasting films due to that issue. ...It doesn’t stay on the camera and falls off. The pictures I’ve taken seem a bit blurry but that also can be attributed to the style of the film and the lighting. "

    Product Description

    The INSTAX PAL Digital Camera – a super small digital camera eager to capture small, spontaneous moments. And with a built-in, wide-angle lens, you can capture exactly what you love. Your landscape. Your friends. Your fun. Although this camera is pocket-friendly, the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera won’t be spending much time tucked away. Record up to 5 sets of personalized, pre-shutter phrases or sounds using the free downloadable INSTAX PAL Smartphone App and the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera will randomly play one of the 5 sounds/phrases whenever you hit the shutter button. Get ready for some friendly, pose-readying encouragement before snapping away. “Spin around! Dance. Smile. Fist bumps. High fives!” Plus, use the included multi-use detachable ring with your INSTAX PAL Camera – as a viewfinder to help get the best shots, as a finger carry loop for an easy hold, or as a camera stand for remote shooting from the INSTAX PAL App. Tap into the power of the INSTAX PAL Smartphone App with the Remote Shooting feature and get a live view of the upcoming shot on your Smartphone! Using the Interval Shooting App feature of the INSTAX PAL Smartphone App you can snap fast-paced digital INSTAX images in sequences of 3, 6, 11 or 21, so you can take “in the moment” shots without missing a beat. When you’re ready to see your digital images, transfer them from the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera (there’s space in the internal camera media for up to 50) to your INSTAX PAL Smartphone App via Bluetooth, then head to the built-in camera roll on the App. Once they’ve arrived, you get to do your thing – add one of the 18 photo-tastic filters, include some text, or decorate with in-App stickers. You can even choose your INSTAX photo format –MINI, SQUARE or WIDE. Once you have customized your images, you can print using the bundle included INSTAX MINI LINK 2 Smartphone printer and INSTAX MINI instant film by selecting your transferred INSTAX PAL images and connecting with your downloaded INSTAX MINI LINK App.* Or print (as you take the shot) directly from the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera to the Bluetooth-paired INSTAX MINI LINK 2 Smartphone Printer, by switching the bottom button on the INSTAX PAL Digital Camera to “L” (LINK mode) - no use of App required! But, that’s not all. Discover the impressive array of animations in the “Gift Inbox” within the INSTAX PAL Smartphone App, where you can turn sequenced, Interval Shooting images or your Gallery images into an animation once your images have been transferred into the App. Perfect for viewing in-App, or for printing an INSTAX photo with a QR code that can be scanned with a Smartphone to reveal your animation. *Images can also be printed with any other INSTAX LINK Series Smartphone Printer, or using the INSTAX MINI LIPLAY or INSTAX MINI EVO Hybrid Instant Cameras (sold separately). Smartphone download of the App relating to your applicable INSTAX device required.

    Product Description

    The super bubbly INSTAX MINI 12 instant camera is bursting with joy, creativity and color. Not only is this iconic instant camera available in five super cute and appealing tones – Pastel Blue, Mint Green, Blossom Pink, Lilac Purple and Clay White – it’s fully loaded with easy-to-use modes and controls. Designed to keep up with life, the INSTAX MINI 12 instant camera is ready to go with a simple twist of the lens. Twist again and you’re in Close-up mode, perfect for selfies. Combined with the perfectly positioned selfie mirror, automatic flash control and INSTAX MINI instant photos, the INSTAX MINI 12 instant camera is a selfie extraordinaire. But that’s not all the Close-up mode can do. When activated, the viewfinder neatly pairs up with the lens, so what you see is what you get – no object shifts in your final INSTAX photo! (FYI the fancy term for this is parallax correction.) Because when you’re this close, there’s no room for error. Plus, with automatic exposure, you can simply aim and click. No need to adjust any settings, just simply fun photos every time. And with that in mind, once you have snapped, your INSTAX MINI instant photo will eject in five seconds (development time approximately 90 seconds). All without compromising on image quality. That deserves high fives all around. When you’re finished capturing memories, twist the lens again to turn the INSTAX MINI 12 instant camera off. But the fun doesn’t end there. Download the free INSTAX UP! App for a new way to keep all your INSTAX photos digitally, in one place. All you have to do is use the App to scan your physical INSTAX photos with your Smartphone and they’ll be turned into sharable, digital photos that you can edit, tag and save. Ready to twist & go?
