I am a novice in normal photogaphy ( i.e., I use only point & shoot cameras as in mobile phones). Some reviewers have described Fuji Instax Mini as a toy but I do not agree with them. If you like experimenting with photography ,you should try this. If you like something just for fun then too try this.
Instant camera means you have just one chance. The photo may be good or bad depending how you handle it.But this process is immensely satisfying as you strive to improve. The camera comes with good instruction sheet. Read it carefully. Also watch online instruction videos - just Google Fuji Instax Mini 9 & you will come across several. They will show you in detail how to load battery, films and start taking photos. I watched these films before I took the first photo & it came out quite nicely. The camera suggests lightning and I strongly recommend that you follow it, until you become an expert in instant photography. The charm is to see you photos develop instantly and the pleasure of taking autograph on spot (if you take a photo of someone you admire) or presenting a photo to someone.
Load film cartridge exactly as given in instructions .Open foil preferably in dimly lighted room, slip cartridge inside(see videos ), then press the shutter. A film cover will pop out. the camera will show that 10 films are loaded. Now it is ready to use. As you take photos, the camera will indicate how many films left.
A photo takes about 3 minutes to develop fully. DO NOT SHAKE THE PHOTO. Just put it gently on a flat surface, away from strong light. After 3 mins, show it to everyone. Store photos in albums.
Use the close-up lens to get good photos. Distance should be between 35 -50cm, not more. Without lens it should be 60cm to 2.5m. Instant photography is not for people in a hurry. Films are expensive, so you have to be patient when you take photos. Some times better results come for the photographer to sit down & take instant photo. I took the first photo sitting on a bench. I have not yet taken a selfie so I cant comment on that aspect. The photos are small in size like an ATM card.So you should plan what photos to take. If for eg you take full figure the person photographed will look tiny. In my childhood days of black & white photography with non-digital film cameras or box camera as they were called, small square photos used to be developed. The photos in the instax mini are about that type (though not square). If you have old black & white photos at home, it will give you an idea about size of the subject in photos.
I initially wanted to own this camera because of its colours. I followed Amazon pricing for more than one year, before I plunged in the lightning deal. I took the decision to buy it recently,after someone took my instant photo( in a more expensive camera) & presented it to me. Fuji instax mini is the cheapest among instant cameras. Try it and you will get addicted.
It works out to about $1/shot which can be expensive but not much worse than developing and printing 35mm. Obviously digital would be cheaper to print but it's nice for kids to get the picture immediately. It also seems to have helped him understand the value of money since he either has to buy his own film or wait for birthdays/christmas.
You can check your framing with the selfie mirror next to the lens.
You can take photo easily with the high-key mode.Setting the brightness adjustment dial to the high-key mode, allows you to take pictures with a softer impression.

I am still getting hold of how to click good pictures.
So far I have noticed the pictures comes best during dusk/dawn time.
Al abrir el paquete vi que no venían las instrucciones en español. No le hubiera dado importancia (hay miles de turoriales por la red de cómo usarla), pero al ver que del paquete de 10 fotos solo salieron 4… vamos!
Y las 10 fotos fueron echadas en exactamente las mismas circunstancias, prácticamente seguidas.
En cuanto a la cámara en sí, de plásticucho ligero. Me recuerda a las viejas cámaras de usar y tirar de finales de los 90 en cuanto a calidades.
El tamaño de las fotos es poco más que una foto de carnet. El papelito entero será más o menos como un tarjeta de crédito, pero restando márgenes se queda en eso.
En fin, que se va de vuelta aunque aún me queda otro paquete de 10 fotos sin abrir...
Used it for my wedding party to make an album personalized by all the guests and it was a hit.
Photo quality is amazing if you choose the right lighting setting.
My son loves to pose for pictures and "shake it like a polaroid picture" to develop lol.
Got it on sale at a great price. Overall awesome purchase :)
Otherwise it's fun to use, easy to use and takes good "classic" looking photos which is great to display.
