Instax Mini 8 - Bringing Photos Back! (Review)

I uhhhm-ed and ahh-ed about getting one of these cameras for the longest time. On one hand I thought I have all camera needs covered - iPhone camera for on the go, and Canon 1100D for blogging/big girl pictures. But on the other hand my brain was going 'pleeeeeease please please please'! So I kind of met in the middle and added one to my Christmas wish list - if I got one, fabulous, if I didn't, still fine. Amazingly though my dad listened and bought me my baby pink camera!

I love the snaps I've taken on my camera - these ones are from my dad's wedding and I tried to shy away from the typical posed 'let me retake this 10 times' posing that we all do now. The great thing about it is that there is literally one chance - and if someone closes their eyes (*cough* my boyfriend) or sneezes or something - it's in the picture. And that will then be a hilarious picture you have for the rest of your life, not a picture deleted straight after taking. They really get people taking and having that minute or two waiting for the photo to develop is really exciting (or that might just be me) as everyone nervously awaits to see what their face looks like!

The only downside is the film - best price for 20 pictures is around £15. However all that's done for me is make me want to use my camera on special occasions where I know I'll be keeping photos I want to look at, not just random pictures because me and some friends are bored!

If you don't have one of these but have a love for photography then I highly recommend getting one. Like I say really it's not that cheap but it depends on how worth it the pictures are to you. I love mine personally and will be using it for a long time to come.
