Great for when you chill with friends and perfect for scrap booking. I think the main reason people should buy this is for nostalgia and instant gratification to see your picture without waiting for it to be developed somewhere. Nice color too!
- Easy to handle
- Selfie mirror is a useful enhancement
- Awesome camera quality
- instant camera
- Automatic exposure measurement. The camera signals the recommended aperture setting with a flashing LED. This helps capture the perfect photo every time.
- High-Key mode – Take brighter pictures with a soft look – perfect for portraits.
Just press the power button located near the lens to turn on the camera and the lens will pop up. Adjust the exposure by using rotating the dial to the desired position as suggested by the light sensor and that’s it you’re ready to click retro looking pics, after clicking the photo the camera will extract a photo print from top of the camera in 2-3 seconds.
Don’t get shocked by viewing a blank picture because photo will take a minute or two to get fully developed.!!
This camera features a 60 mm lens with f/12.7 aperture and a flash that always light up whether you are indoor or outdoor. It also houses a light sensor that helps to automatically adjust the exposure as per the lighting condition and we only need to turn the dial as per the indicator. There is a dedicated high key mode which is an addition in this model to maximize brightness.
It comes with a set of two AA batteries but instead of these I would recommend to use rechargeable batteries that you’ll need to buy separately to save some bucks. There’s also a photo count analogue meter at the back that counts the number of shots remaining.
The unique retro design with attractive pastel shades is one of the major reason people love this camera more than any other instant camera. Fujifilm while keeping the retro look intact, has now renewed its colour range with cool colours like Cobalt blue, Lime green, Ice blue, Flamingo pink and Smokey white. It weighs just around 350 grams with battery and it measures 4.56 x 4.66 x 2.69 inch, also it’s built up with plastic and that’s make it look like a toy camera.
All in all it is a great product for creating memories and to gift someone on special occasions too.
A big thumbs up from my side !!
