I took my new friend, the Instax mini 25, to meet some old friends at a BBQ in a Brooklyn backyard to celebrate 4th of July. As you can see below, it was a lot of fun and beat out the ragtag digitals lying around. Each spontaneous portrait came out with perfect contrast and saturation. The colors popped like firecrackers. I passed it around, and of course lost a few prints in the process, but it was worth it. The flash is bright, but not overpowering, making nearly night time shots come out bright and crisp. The Instax captured a wonderful evening’s memories on credit card sized images that are easy to tuck away in a pocket or use as a quick business card. Take a look!
