A new old way to take great pictures: Fujifilm Instax Mini 8

What if you could take adorable, fun, cute pictures and share them with friends - not through email, or instant messages, but by giving them something that they’ll cherish forever? That’s where the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 shines: it’s a super-fun little camera that brings instant excitement and joy to everything you do!


At Staples we’re carrying the Instax Mini 8 in White, Black, Blue, and Pink, meaning that there’s a model that’ll match the style of almost anyone you know. It’s an instant camera, that uses film to give you pictures right away. Every shot is developed instantly on credit-card-sized film, and there’s a unique white border around each shot that gives it a cool retro look with plenty of space to write personalized messages. That way, you get the chance to create something that you can share.


So what’s the big deal? Well, think about when you share something digitally... it’s something that you can share with everyone, making as many digital copies as you want. The interesting thing about film and about the fun stuff you’ll make with an Instax camera is that it’s rare... and it’s special. When you create a shot, that’s the only picture of its type that will ever exist. When you give that picture to someone, you’re giving them something precious.


The Instax Mini 8 has a built-in flash, a brightness adjustment dial, and a fast electronic shutter. The lens cover is built-in as well, so you don’t have to worry about losing it. Powered by 2x AA batteries, selecting a set of rechargeable batteries will go a long way to making this camera a green choice. Just make sure that they’re batteries for digital products so they can meet the needs of the Instax Mini 8’s flash.


The Instax Mini 8 a fun way to take pictures, whether it be for photographers who love film, photographers who were born after digital took over, and everyone in between. Check it out and see for yourself!
