Instant Love


My cute sis-in-law Allison first got me addicted to the instax! (pic from a post in march 09)
After posting my felt album with instax pictures I've had some questions about which camera I used etc.
The camera I use is the Fuji Film Mini instax.
Yes, it works just like a polaroid camera = instant love!
The pictures come out about the size of a credit card. I use this film.
Sometimes it seems like it doesn't center that well but I think it adds to the coolness of the photos.
There's also a larger version of the Fuji Film Instax and the pictures are about twice the size. Trying to figure out a good case for the defense about how I need that one too.

Happy Friday!

THanks for the info, this is going on my wish list too! hugs from Conroe, TX!

p.s. I know you know where I am from by now, LOL. But I continue to list that because I find that when folks from Texas and especially those near me see that it's a way for us to connect :) I was contacted by one of your readers who also lives in Conroe, it was so cool knowing she met me via your blog comments :) hugs spark sister! Can't wait to meet your new precious baby girl!!

I've got one too but I seldom use it as much as I like cos the film is really expensive here in Malaysia... cost about RM2 per piece of film which is you think of it dollar-to-dollar is frickin' expensive...

but I love my instax! :)

Elizabeth,
I love my Instax and I have the larger version. The only drawback is that the camera itself is very big. I lugged it all over NYC recently and it filled the front pocket of my backpack. Thinking about hitting up B&H and getting the smaller one too, just for ease of use. The little ones love the pics and the instant gratification.

i love my instax as well and make mini albums on the fly all the time.. it is great to not have to wait even an hour for pics. ;-)

nicole said...

I have the large instax. I wish it was white like the mini one. I love it but it is soooo big and black that you can't just snapa a picture- everyone notices. The photos from that are great though. I love them so much.

I'm grateful for my family, friends and health. I'm also grateful for the talents of other's who share them with us, so we can learn, enjoy, become more talented ourselves and sometimes have the chance to win low fat treats.
