Our take on the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

by Eric Angevine
Fujifilm
Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 in yellow

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 comes in a variety of colors.

Instant fun: just add friends!

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is the perfect camera for the style-conscious photographer in your life. It's compact, easy to use, and comes in an assortment of complementary colors. It's easy to slip into a pocket or purse for family gatherings, vacations, or everyday use. Best of all, it brings back the fun of the instant camera. Just choose your settings, snap the shutter, and a 2"x3" photo booth style print pops out. You'll end up with keepsakes you can share, display and store with ease.

(Note: The Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 is an instant film camera only. It will not create digital images.)

Easy as 1-2-3

Once you've loaded the camera with film packs, you're essentially ready to start shooting fun photos. Just push the power button and twist the rotary dial to match your environment:

  • Indoors/Night (f/12.7)
  • Cloudy/Shade (f/16)
  • Sunny/Slightly Cloudy (f/22)
  • Sunny/Bright (f/32)

Then push the button, and take your picture. The flash always fires, but it's calibrated to match the dial setting, so you don't risk over- or under-exposure. Taking memorable snapshots is as easy as 1-2-3.

Features

Overview: The Fujifilm Instax mini 8 instant camera can take photos and instantly produce a sharp, high quality, credit card-sized print. The Instax mini 8 comes with a neck strap, and 2 "AA" alkaline batteries.

Instax mini Film: The Instax mini 8 uses Instax mini film, which comes in 2 packs of 10 sheets each. (No film is included with the camera). The mini 8 is also compatible with Instax mini Rainbow film, which comes in a box of 10 sheets in multiple colors. The camera instantly produces full color photos on special paper that is 3.39" wide and 2.13" high. The image appears on the paper as 2.44" wide by 1.81" high. The camera has a mechanical exposure counter that counts down the number of unexposed films, and a film pack window to indicate that a film pack is installed.

Viewfinder: You can frame your shots using the 0.37x Real Image viewfinder, with a target spot to help you center your pictures.

Lens: The Instax mini 8 has a retractable 2-element 60mm F12.7 lens. The focusing range is approximately 24" to infinity.

Shooting Modes: The Instax mini 8 has a mechanical Power On button which extends the lens and starts the metering process. The camera analyzes the scene and automatically indicates which of the four shooting modes should be used with a lit LED. The shooting modes are manually selected by turning the mode dial (surrounding the lens) to the indicated mode. The shooting modes include: Indoors (aperture F12.7), Cloudy (F16), Sunny/Slightly Cloudy (F22), and Sunny/Bright (F32). You can also select the High Key mode to take a lighter picture. If you wish to take a lighter picture, you can set the mode dial to a darker position than what is indicated by the LED.

Flash: The camera features a constant firing electronic flash with automatic light adjustment. The flash range is approximately 24" to 8'-10". The recycle time is 0.2 to 6 seconds (when using fresh batteries).

No Tripod Mount: The Instax mini 8 does not have a theaded screw hole for mounting the camera to a tripod.

Power: The Instax mini 8 is powered by two "AA" alkaline batteries (supplied). With fresh batteries, the camera should be able to shoot and print about 100 pictures (ten 10-picture film packs). To help save battery power, the camera will automatically turn itself after approximately 5 minutes on non-use.

Great Camera

Written By aoddtree, Los Angeles, Ca on Tuesday, July 01, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great little camera. Works better than I thought. Film is a little bit pricy but you can search for cheaper options than buying it at the store.
