This Fujifilm Instant Camera Is Seriously Nostalgic, and Gen Z Is Obsessed
Gen Z has brought back a ton of trends that we wish would have stayed dead. Ditching skinny jeans is cool. Bringing back chunky white sneakers and jean skirts? No thanks. But we have to admit that some of their ideas are actually good. Bringing back instant cameras is one of them.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 is similar to the Polaroid cameras of yesteryear, just way better. Instead of taking a zillionth selfie on your phone, why not try printing some real photos for a change?
Remember how fun Polaroids were? Yeah, they still are.
Something about a camera instantly printing your photos to share with friends and pin on your wall is more special than adding yet another pic to your Google Photos library.
Using a real camera is a more sensory experience, too, and it makes photoshoots with friends way more fun.
The aesthetic of pastel Fujifilm cameras is simply sublime.
The Instax mini comes in the cutest colors we've ever seen.
Creamy lavender, blush pink and baby blue are arguably the most fun, but it also comes in white and black for those who prefer a more refined look.
Like Polaroids, the Fujifilm Instax Mini prints photos instantly.
Needless to say, the coolest part of the Instax mini is that it prints every photo as soon as you take it. Since no one ever gets around to printing photos from their phone anymore, that's pretty awesome.
Maybe one day we'll get around to ordering prints and making that family photo album, but until then, the Instax mini can easily fill in.
There are so many fun ways to use the Instax Mini 11.
Make a photo wall with snapshots of every friend who visits your house. Make a collage of best friend pics for their birthday. Capture a special event and store it away in a memory box to look back on one day.
The only limit is your imagination.
The very latest Fujifilm Instax Mini takes epic selfies.
Old Polaroids weren't exactly made for selfies, but the Instax Mini 11 has a dedicated selfie mode.
Just pull out the built-in selfie lens and start snapping.
Unlike older models, lighting is a breeze.
Don't only take our word for it.
"Really love the camera so much!" said a Fujifilm Instant user named Selene. "It was time for me to upgrade since my Instax Mini 9 wasn’t working on me anymore. So I looked into the Mini 11 and it works so good! I love the settings where you don’t have to adjust the lighting and it does it automatically.
It also has a selfie mode and I’m so buying a new case for it. Packaging was perfect and came with batteries. Highly recommend!"
Seriously, taking pictures has never been easier.
The automatic exposure feature is a serious win for instant cameras. It's really what sets the Instax Mini 11 apart from other models.
Every photo is perfectly exposed, even if you have zero experience with photography.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 conveniently comes with batteries.
The worst part of getting a new gadget is finding out it doesn't come with batteries. You want to open it and use it right away, not get in the car to run to Walgreens.
Fujifilm thought of that and included batteries with every Instax Mini. Instant gratification when our package arrives? We love that for us.
The pictures it takes have that trademark vintage vibe.
What's old is new again. Or is it the other way around? Either way, people are digging this Fujifilm Instax Mini 11.
"I’ve been wanting to get one of these as I’ve seen them just about anywhere," said Maxin Anahí. "I’ve finally got my hands on this gorgeous camera, and I’m so impressed. I recall my aunt had a pretty high quality camera with her long ago that printed Polaroids, and that’s what made me always want something similar, so now that times changed, this is just as nearly great as a professional one. Just a tad smaller, of course.
"Print quality is just what I was looking for. That vintage-old photograph aesthetic! I recommend this, 10/10. Definitely gifting some of these, too!"
It's so easy that even kids can use it.
They really thought of everything.
"My little one just loves her Instax camera," said KB. "This was a neat little bundle deal to get her started. Her older sister has had one for some time now. So she knows how to use it and just loves it.
"It was a great gift and the included bundle of film and mount was a nice touch. I highly suggest buying film in bulk and getting the twin packs or larger! Trust me, your kids will blow through film in no time flat!"
One serious photographer even called it the best instant camera.
Over 16,000 five-star reviews on Amazon and a recommendation from one of YouTube's most followed camera reviewers?
Seriously. Just get it already.
