I have an Instax, and if I had it to do again I would purchase the wide. It is lots of fun, but the pictures are really little and "getting the shot" is a bit of a crap shoot!

I attended a bday party where a friend brought the wide/bigger one (it was black) and it was a blast, easier to get the shot you want and just seemed a little more "polaroid instamatic."

Hope that helps a little - karin

thanks Karin!
I was really leaning towards the wide one too, cause it felt like the old polaroids, So I am glad for your input, Thank you!

I have been interested in buying one too, is there a name for the wider one? Not sure how I would know it was wider, lol.

I got the mini one for Christmas and I love it!

In my scrapbooking LO's I usually supplement the instax photo with a coupe of regular pics.

Search in the gallery for instax and see what comes up, there are some great examples!

Diane-
the wide version is called instax 210. It prints photos more like the old polaroid, wide vs. the mini which prints tall skinny cc sized pics.
I can tell a difference when I look at all the layouts in the gallery and I do think I will get the wide one- you also have to make sure you order the wide film and not the mini.

My friend has both and I have the instax. The only drawback to the larger one is she does say it's a bit bulky to carry around. Sometimes we coordinate and she takes the larger one and I take the smaller one and we share photos. They are both really fun! I love my mini!

I did a whole mini book with instax photos from the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, Walt Disney World. It was awesome!

I have the Instax mini and loooove it! It's a great tool to carry when you travel, and it's fun to see your kids use it too
I think I want the wide one too, though it's a really big camera - not easy to carry.
But it's a real fun tool!

I love, love, love my mini! I take it on vacations so I can document our trip right away. Photos turn out good.

Gave DD an Instax for Christmas and she loves it -- she does Smash books.

She's a teen so she's a master at the self-photo, so no problems there, hahha!

I have them both! And love them equally the mini is easier to put in my PL! Where as the wide will only fit in the 4x6 slots, the mini will fit in any!
