Fuji Instax Mini 25

Return of Film?

Digital is dead hoorah for the return of film! No wait. Sorry.  Only kidding.  Digital photography isn’t going anywhere I’m afraid but for those of you who still crave a little nostalgia, how about the convenience of the old polaroid?  There is still a huge following for instant cameras and you can’t beat the thrill of watching the image appear right before your very eyes, something that us old film users miss from the darkroom days…Anyways, I digress.

Fuji is now the leader when it comes to Instant cameras and it’s latest offering is the cool Instax Mini 25 which takes credit card sized pictures.  The one pictured below is a cool white color, matching perfectly with your MacBook or if you’re very trendy, you can go for the Hello Kitty version for a little extra.

Fun Fun Fun!

The camera is designed for fun usage and even has a little mirror in front to let you take the obligatory self portrait, or one of you and your favorite cuddly toy.

The Instax 25 is super easy to use with 2 chunky shutter buttons for easy picture taking either vertically or horizontally and it weighs hardly anything at all (less than 2 lbs.)  It also has a Landscape setting which means you can take shots that are further away and comes with a detachable close up lens to allow you to shoot close up (of course!)

The camera uses 2 CR Lithium batteries (included) and Instax mini film which is widely available.

Vivid Pics

The pictures are really bright and vibrant and are a really fun way of capturing a party or a special event.  Last week at my sister’s wedding, her friends snapped a poloroid of each couple as they entered the church and then at the reception put them in the guestbook so everyone could write their well wishes alongside their picture.  It’s a wonderful momento of their big day!

Hello Kitty!

Hello Kitty!

You can check out the Fuji Instax Mini here on Amazon and if you want to be the cool Auntie at Christmas this year, get your mits on the exclusive Hello Kitty version while they’re still in stock!

Happy Snapping!

PS Amazon currently has the Fuji Instax Mini 25 as $30 off the RRP (August 2010)

    Sounds cute, I would want one of these! But can you upload them to your computer to say… put pictures you’ve taken on Facebook or something like that?

      You would have to scan them Mia – they are not digital!

    how many photos can i take if i buy a packet of mini film?

    • https://plus.google.com/101862703520953230052 Ingrid

      Only 10 shots in a single pack Angela, but they are usually sold in twin packs (20 shots)

    Between all the instax 7S, 8, 25, 50 is there one that you would recomend more than the other and How long does the batteries life last on the Instax 25?

      I honestly couldn’t say which one I’d recommend more than the other as I’ve only had experience with the Mini 25. Check out Amazon for other reviews that might help. The CR2 batteries should last quite a long time – definitely more powerful than AA type batteries.
