Remember Polaroid pictures? Of course you do. There was nothing more fun than snapping a photo, shaking it, and watching it develop -- even when it resulted in a blurry image with a fingerprint in the corner.
These sweet Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Cameras are like a cooler, hipper version of the Polaroids you remember. They come in a variety of bright, fun colors and run on 2 AA batteries. They are ultra-trendy, super portable, and they'll level up your Instagram game. They also make perfect gifts for your aesthetic-obsessed teenager or adventurous college student.
Amazon has a variety of colors on sale, including Cobalt Blue, Ice Blue, Flamingo Pink, and Smokey White. The camera is user-friendly and comes with settings that are easy to use. You just twist the lens on the front of the camera to get the perfect aperture settings, and the sensor recommends one for you each time you're about to take a photo. These even come with a selfie mirror, something I wish that my Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 had.
If you're looking for more colors, you should check out the Instax Mini 8. I have the pink one and I love it. It's perfect to take on road trips and it makes a great conversation starter. The film can get pricey, but if you buy it in bulk you end up saving a ton of money -- and you're always ready to snap a pic as soon as there is a photo opportunity.
There are a ton of affordable accessories that make this camera even more fun.
