Has anybody heard of or used the Fuji Instax camera & film? From what I see and hear, it’s very similar to Polaroid but a bit less expensive (I think). I’m incredibly intrigued and want to get one, but am curious if it’s any good!

I had the Fuji Instax 7s and when it died, I replaced it with the Fuji Mini 25. I love the camera and it is a ton of fun! The film, however, is on the pricey side (just under $1 per pic). I find that close-up shots aren’t guaranteed to turn out, and I wish the colours were a bit more vibrant, but overall, I’m quite happy with it.

Polaroid is expensive because it is no longer in production (and thus also hard to find). Less color saturation is a hallmark of the instant film – it is a byproduct of the development process. These camera give more of a “vintage” quality to the photos. Also, since the lens is not zoomable or changeable, there are instances, like the PP said, where there is blur. It’s definitely not a macro lens. But, I think they are a lot of fun :-), especially if your wedding and reception are in the daytime or are well lit (there is a flash, but on camera flashes don’t tend to go too far, just enough for a quick portrait, but not enough to capture a room, etc in low light)
