Everyone seems to have gotten one for Christmas which was nothing short of annoying because it means I haven't been able to find film for my little baby for over 5 weeks now. :( I normally stock up in Argos who, naturally have been out of stock for years. The only film they had left was wedding film and trust me, I was so tempted but that's neither here nor there. Hopefully Argos restock soon :)
The instax mini 8 comes in a wide range of colours from black to yellow. I went with this minty blue one.
The camera is actually pretty simple to use once you get the hang of it. It takes two AA batteries and the film pack pops into the back, there's even a little dial which tells you how many more Polaroids you have left to use. Most Polaroid packs only come with ten in them and trust me you go through them pretty quick.
On Ebay you can buy a lot of nifty accessories for the instax mini such as a carry bag and lenses but I have yet to buy any of them but they look really handy.
If you love taking pictures and sticking them around your room then this is definitely for you. Not only do you get the instant gratification of having the picture in your hand, but you can share them with your friends who love them just as much.
