Retro Fun with Instant Film

Who doesn’t love instant film. I love it I love the magic of having a blank piece of paper become a photo just seconds later. Its great for parties and just hanging out waiting for those cute moments. For Christmas I got a FujiFilm Instax Mini 90. The video above shows just how long it takes to develop so quickly only about a minute and a half.

Now we come to the top of the Instax Mini line – the 90 Neo Classic. It has some slick retro styling, and comes in brown and black. And it has all sorts of nifty features.

Like the Mini 70, it has built in macro and landscape modes, brightness control, and a tripod mount. Then it has some really awesome extra features.

First up, my favorite, the double exposure mode. This exposes two images on the same piece of film, and can give some really creative and unexpected results! A ton of fun.

There’s also bulb mode, up to 10 seconds, kids mode (to ensure that your photos aren’t blurry), party mode (for low light), a self timer, two shutter releases to make horizontal and vertical shooting easier, a rechargeable battery and charger.

And a high performance flash that you can turn off! Yep, this is the only Instax where you can turn the flash off, and I love that! I’m not a big flash fan so having the control over it is tops.

Now to change modes on this camera you need to press a button, and then turn the front dial to move through the modes. I found this a little unnecessary, and cumbersome. I’d have preferred just pushing a button. It’s not a game changer, but certainly not ideal.

Best for:

  • Creative instant photography
  • Serious Instax enthusiasts
