A number of years ago I became aware of a new product hitting the market from Fujifilm called the Instax cameras. These cameras were first brought to my attention by my Little One. She was so impressed that there was a camera on the market that could instantly give you a physical picture that you could hold in your hand and put in a photo album. She was pretty shocked to find out that these were considered old fashioned cameras to me and that our generations were so impressed by digital cameras. 🙂
Since that time, we have reviewed a number of the different Instax cameras. The latest one that I have checked out is the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 in brown. It comes in black and brown and looks like an older fashioned, more traditional camera.
The Instax Mini 90 has some pretty cool features and here are a few of them….
Superimpose two different images in one frame to create an artistic photo
This feature allows for long exposure times. The shutter stays open for upto 10 seconds. Perfect for night time use to capture motion of light
The built-in macro allows you to take close up shots without an attachment
*Kids Mode/Party Mode
Kids mode allows you to take action shots without having images turn out blurry.
Party mode is Ideal for low light settings
Take one or two pictures at once
*High Performance Flash
The high performance flash emits the ideal amount of light finely adjusted for the distance to the subject and ambient brightness and helps to optimize the exposure

The first instant camera to offer a rechargeable battery system. Uses Li-ion battery NP-45A and BC-45C battery charger
*LCD Display with Exposure Indicator

Lighten or Darken your photos
*Built in Lens-Cover
Protecting your camera is easy with the electronic lens cover that automatically opens when the camera turns on.
The Instax Mini 90 uses the mini Instax film. The film is available in the white border style as well as multiple colorful and decorative border styles. You can find the Instax film at your local stores that sell cameras. I see the film in every store that sells cameras. I recently saw a wonderful Christmas border option for the film that is perfect for this time of year.
One of my favorite features of the Instax Mini 90 is the double exposure mode, that allows you to combine two photos in one. I was not sure how to show this being done, so here is the example from the Fujifilm website…
I also love the Kid’s Mode, which I was not sure what it was until I got into the information and using of the camera more. The Kid’s Mode is not what you put the camera on if a kid is using it 🙂 Kid’s Mode is for taking photos of the fast moving darlings of ours so that the photo is more than a blur. 🙂 What a great mode! Swinging, no problem. Refusing to stand still, no problem. Kid’s Mode is there to save the day.
My Little One has never lost her love for the Fujifilm Instax products. We have an entire lineup of the Instax cameras in our household and she is always taking pictures and asking for more film.
Here is a little proof as to how much my Little One loves her Instax cameras…
That is just a small sample of her photo collection. 🙂
My Little One who is 9 adores using the Instax cameras. She has made photo books, cards, and more out of the instant pictures. She has albums full of photos that she loves to look through.
Her Christmas wish list this year includes a fancy Fujifilm polka dotted case for her one Instax camera, the Christmas themed film, and a larger Instax photo album in pink. I might have a little photographer on my hands.
