Fuji Instax Mini 7s: Because the Instant Backs are Overrated

This camera was made for the Instax Mini film. Surprisingly uncommon; this little gem is a favorite of mine.

As a very young photographer, a fun camera like this seemed like the perfect choice for a first film camera. The Instax Mini seems to be very marketed toward young people, for fun occasions, and for taking pictures of friends having a good time. However the camera seems to yield fantastic results when thinking outside of the box.

My first few shots taken where of vast landscapes. I was really blown away, the blues popped off the small piece of film, and it just looked lovely! However the quirk with this camera was actually the film; the small dark marks that would pop up constantly. What seemed like a shame, I soon learned to love. It gave the pictures character.

Since then I’ve taken many more out of the box pictures with it. Even trying a few tipsters with it, which made very cool results.

Over all I highly recommend this camera for anyone. If you want a fun instant camera, without going Polaroid or buying a Diana or LC-A+ and going instant back for quite a lot of dough.
