For quite some time now, people have been mesmerized by cameras that have a retro feel to it. These retro cameras, sometimes, are small in sizes and they take pictures instantly so the result is also a small picture but with a beautiful vignette.
Enter Instax Mini 9 by the well-known company, Fujifilm; a lightweight instant camera that is user friendly especially for beginners and very easy to bring with you anywhere you go. Since it’s a small camera, you can put it in your bag whenever you’re going out. It has a simple on/off button that even new camera owners will delight in. This little but sturdy camera produces roughly 2 inch photos in a flash. Instax mini 9 has a viewfinder with 0.37x target spot and shutter speed of 1/60 sec which means you’ll have an easy time taking photos of your moving model with a clear result. This camera uses 2 AA batteries which can last you up to 100 shots, not bad right?
It’s easy to use with an automatic setting to determine the brightness mode you need for a certain moment although there are available options like cloudy, sunny, partly cloudy, etc. There is a little mirror that has a “lomo” effect to it which makes for a great “selfie”. This ultra-cute camera also has a promising high-key mode and a close-up shooting lens that take great portraits.
Personally, I like taking photos with this kind of camera because apart from it being easy to use for a beginner like me, it can also be brought wherever I go with ease. Instax mini 9 offers a lot of color to choose from. If you like to be girly, you can choose pink. If you’re more into zen mode, you can opt for white or if you’re like me who likes deeper colors, you can choose blue.
You can get the camera here for as low as $61.93.
