After 10 hours of new research and testing (at the top of 3 years’ worth of work on previous manuals), we believe the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic is the ideal instant film camera for the majority of individuals, combining simplicity of use, great-looking photographs, and retro-cool design at a reasonable price.
The Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic delivers richer images–with greater contrast, sharpness, and saturation–compared to our previous high select, the Instax Mini 50S. Its compact, durable body feels great in the hand, with controls that are intuitive enough for anybody to begin taking photographs immediately. The camera generates predictably satisfying images with brighter colours and finer detail than we watched in the competition. Along with the silver-and-black retro layout gives it a trendy factor its rivals can not match. Now that the price of Fujifilm’s top notch Instax model has dropped out of its launch cost, we think that the Mini 90 Neo Classic is the best value available to get an instant camera with additional controls such as exposure compensation and multiple exposure mode.
If everything you need in a quick camera is a fun toy which can easily take snapshots, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 50S prices less compared to our best pick and produces photos that are nearly as good. Its streamlined body feels durable, and all of the controls are intuitive enough for you to pass this camera around in a party without education. However, its photographs are not as sharp or saturated as the ones of our main pick, it does not give the same amount of control, and it requires disposable CR2 batteries.
For wide-angle work such as group portraits or landscapes, we enjoy the Fujifilm Instax Wide 300. It produces 3.4-by-4.3-inch photographs with classic white boundaries, which are nearer in dimension to old-school Polaroids. You have little to control or fix on this particular camera’s bulky body, with only one button to get exposure compensation and another for flash output, so you and your party guests can simply point and shoot.
If you want to keep shooting with your smartphone but like the idea and appearance of an old fashioned, tangible print, the Fujifilm Instax Share SP-2 is the ideal instant printer available. It is simple to connect your telephone to the printer via Wi-Fi and share access to a library of images together with the free Instax Chat program, which you may then use to perform some minor editing and include a filter or a customized edge. Press the print button and also the SP-2’s high heeled 320 dpi print is ready in just 10 minutes.
