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.

Product Research


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.

Brings back Kodak memories

Written By Kandie, Tennessee on Monday, March 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I absolutely love this camera. Getting pictures instantly was a thing in the past, but not anymore.. It's great when hanging out with friends and just playing around. The pictures are about $1.00 a piece, but the color and quality is unbeatable. If you have a kid around 10-17, I promise they will love it. Plus you can remind that we didn't have digital pictures and you only had one chance to get the "selfie" right ;) Great buy! I've even started an album just for these pictures. Can't wait to look back at them years from now. Nothing like a real picture.

Pros: Color Quality Options for filters Bright flash for dark areas Pictures in an instant no matter where you are

Cons: Film is expensive, use wisely the mini model is good, but the picture is only like a 4x2 or something around that. If you can go for the wide one. It will be much more enjoyable.

Love It!!

Granddaughter is 16 and loves it!! Her BFF has a Pink one and they have the most fun with these cameras!! I was skeptical and tried to talk her out of this purchase since we have several really good digital cameras and she has an I phone with good camera! All her friends think this is one 'cool' camera!

Pros: Instant pics to share

Cool camera!

Written By gf, New Jersey on Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very cool camera. My kids are too young to remember Poloroids, so when I got this one loaded with film & a blank picture came out, they were disappointed. But then, they witnessed "magic" and saw their pictures develop before their very eyes. Inexpensive & comes in a variety of cool colors.

Pros: easy to use, cool colors

Cons: Setup instructions seemed less than straightforward...they used pictures only. It was so easy to figure it out, so I guess this didn't really matter.

A lot of love for not a lot of money

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

i love this product, absolutely wonderful. Especially for beginners! I even bought my dad one (and he's old) (:

Pros: Small, simple, easy. Pretty

Cons: youll have to learn by taking pictures and figuring it out yourself. The picture in the lens sometimes looks perfect and comes out crooked or to far.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

You cannot beat the price of this fun camera. I leave it out at parties and have extra film available and it's always a hit. The fact that it comes in so many colors also makes it worth it...just a fun camera to have. Yes, the film is pricier; you will pay the same for a box of good quality photo paper.

Adorable little camera

Written By KarenS, Colorado on Sunday, February 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

My 9-yr-old daughter absolutely adores this camera. And I can definitely see using it myself at parties! Super cute.

Pros: Very simple to use.

Cons: Film is expensive, and there's no zoom. We bought an accessories kit that has a "close-up lens" but it's pretty klunky.

AWESOME! - Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 - AWESOME!

Written By Andy B, Miami, FL. on Wednesday, February 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This camera really delivers! Compact, Fast, Quality pictures. Worth more than the cost.

Pros: Lightweight, Inexpensive, High quality photos.

Cons: The pink color of mine makes it look "mickey-mouse" which couldn't be further from the truth.

Instant photos

Written By kathleenthuman, Lincoln, NE on Friday, January 30, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to use. We had great fun at Christmas taking pictures, looking at them and taking them home. The size of the pictures is a plus and a minus, though. Plus because they are easy to carry and store, but minus because you need some practice to get good composition in your small frame.

Pros: Easy to use, fun, inexpensive

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This product came super fast and this was the cheapest price that I found online. I gave it as a gift to my sister who is 16 and she loved it. The pictures come out clear and there are different settings. The only thing is that it doesn't have zooming in abilities. Other than that I am pleased with this purchase.

Great camera

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Got this product for my girlfriend who loves taking photos. She loves it, it works just as it should, and the pink color looks really nice / cute. The price on Crutchfield is also a whole lot more reasonable than the price on Amazon (which almost costs [offsiteUrl] - 2x).

Pros: - Small / portable - Build seems sturdy and the color is pleasing - Pictures come out well - No problem (yet!)

Great gift for my 11 yr old niece

Written By ys, North Carolina on Tuesday, January 06, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this for my niece. The pictures are very clear much better than the instant cameras from before. They are credit card size but it worked great for her. Crutchfield had it in stock and the best price. I will shop here again.

Pros: clear pictures, easy to use, durable

Snap- tastic

Written By Jules, Connecticut on Friday, January 02, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Fuji Film camera is great. Based on the lighting the camera adjusts which is phenomenal. I have a yellow one and I have gotten lots of compliments on the color. Though, the camera is a little large and when the pictures print out they don't have extremely vibrant colors, overall, the camera is very cool, cute, stylish and fun!!! Also, there is so many creative projects you can do with the pictures!!

Pros: Fun, cute, stylish, something cool to show your friends! Quick too

Cons: Large, colors aren't as vibrant as seen on box, have to pay for expensive film

Awesome Kawaii Camera!

Written By Rosemarygirl, Texas on Thursday, December 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love this little camera. (Though it is not really little by any means) It's really cute and pink. Takes some getting used to on the brightness side of things. But overall worth getting an understanding of. I've already made a lot of projects with the pictures I've taken. It's odd getting used to paying for film separately again, but you know what you are getting into.

Pros: Cute, takes great pictures, easy to use.

Cons: A little large.

This is the perfect gift for a tween girl! It allows my daughter to be creative and have a great time with her cousins and friends. Highly recommend this product.

Pros: Easy to use and fun. Allows for a lot of creativity.

Cons: The only thing I can say is that it is bigger than I expected, but I don't thing that is a big deal.

This is such a cute camera! I saw it at a wedding where they took a photo of each attendee for the guest book and then we got another photo to take home. It's fun to have a hard copy picture in your hand right away.

Pros: Quick, easy, fun

Cons: Film is expensive and I'm going to need a lot more of it!

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.
