I've seen those cameras and it seems like such a fun toy (and super cute! ), but is it really useful?
Is it like a polaroid camera in that you ONLY get the photo on a paper? Or does the camera save the photos digitally as well? Is the quality of the photos any good?
The cost per photo seems to be very high? Do you think it's worth it?
I want to hear some reviews from the peas!

Mercytiara reviewed it on youtube if that helps: Camera review

I haven't watched the whole video yet so don't know if its a positive or negative review.


Ciao,

I like mine but don't use it enough. The film is $$$$. It is fun on vacation to take snapshots to have right then and there. I also like it at gatherings to give photos to others. The photos look good spread in with my normal scrapbooking.

Cost is around a $1 and item. Also, I always think the camera takes a wierd photo from the side or something; not directly what I aim at. Last the quality can be good but can be bad. Outside is best, but sometimes full sun causes a white out effect.

Thanks for the link!

I cannot really motivate a purchase but I thought, if I should happen to stumble upon that camera at a great price, let's say in a shop at the airport, on my way to Barcelona, I might not be able to resist...

I have the printer that makes the small Instax prints and I love it. The film is costly but it is great in a mini album and fun at gatherings. Go for it if you want something new and fun. Target sells one if you what to see it in person.
