As I learn and grow in my photography education, my appreciation of everything photography has also sparked my interest in novelty cameras such as the FujiFilm Instax Mini 7. One of the things that really stands out about the FujiFilm Instax Mini 7 is the design of the camera. When I think about Polaroids I imagine those big clunky cameras from the 90’s, the one that resembles a black brick. Not anymore though, the Instax Mini 7 brings a sleek kid friendly design that would seem fun to just carry around.
It’s a bit ironic that in the day and age of digital, our photographic pursuits is still geared toward more of a film look. Think about all the Photoshop tutorials on how to mimic Lomography, or even Polaroid film. Film is far from dead, and that’s why there is a market for the FujiFilm Instax Mini 7. You can either spend 30 minutes trying to achieve a Polaroid look, or you can actually have a Polaroid which takes seconds to print out. If you can’t figure that math out then I suggest you watch some more Sesame Street.
The FujiFilm Instax Mini 7 sports a 1/60th electronic shutter, and LED Exposure Meter, and an automatic Film Feed. It’s powered by four AA batteries, and can carry up to 20 shots per pack. With a price tag of $85 dollars, you can’t go wrong with this camera, although the $20 per pack of film might turn off the cheap skates.
Well I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but I know what I’m going to put on my Christmas list this year. Nothing, I’m a grown ass man, I don’t do Christmas Lists, but I do know what I’ll buy with my hard earned money. Nothing, we are in a recession people, stop spending like it was 2005, I don’t care what Obama Says.
