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.
