A Sunday Kind of Love: Fuji Instax Instant Cameras

May 27, 2012

I’ve had my Instax camera for a few years, but recently I’ve fallen head over heels in love with it again! From Omaha to LA and from Vegas to New York, my trusty Instax has traveled with me to document my friends and frolics along the way.

In these days of phone cameras to rival SLRs and Instagram to make us all feel like editing pros, there is still something so exciting about clicking that clunky button, hearing the whirring sound and waiting (for what feels like forever) for the picture to appear. They don’t always turn out how you expect, but that’s all part of the fun!

I was struggling with wondering how to display my favourite precious prints (as far as I’m aware no one has yet produced an Instax-holding photo frame) so Gareth came up with this…strips of MDF, painted white, for me to attach my current faves to and hang on our kitchen wall. Isn’t it cool? Now I can be reminded of my travels and my BFFs whenever we eat!

I own the Fuji Instax Mini 7 which takes credit card sized prints. The Instax Wide Format Camera is also pretty cool, a few of my friends own it and I’m dying to add it to my collection soon! The photos are double the size and would look awesome in individual photo frames I think.

So tell me, do you have an instant camera? Do you use it often? How do you display your prints?
