Unboxing: Instax Mini 9


The Fujifilm Instax mini 9

The cutest point and shoot camera you can find, It is a blast from the past yet it pops of curves of today. The choice of colors are reminiscent of the neon lights of the 80’s.

The FujiFilm Instax mini 9 comes in 5 colors namely, cobalt blue, Ice blue, flamingo pink , lime green and Smokey white. Our camera is flamingo pink but we would like to call it a fitting bubble gum pink.

They say great things come in small boxes and the Instax mini 9 does indeed come in a small box. The Box of the Instax mini 9 is themed to the color of the camera contained inside and our box is just popping screaming “flamingo pink.”

The Box contains:

  1. The Instax Mini 9 Camera
  2. Hand Strap (same color with the camera.)
  3. Close-up lens attachment
  4. Sticker
  5. AA Battery
  6. Instruction Manual

Instax Mini 9 with close up lens attached. Handstrap and sticker included

The Camera is cute but far from small considering the usual size of compact cameras and point and shoots. The Instax Mini 9 is even taller when compared to entry level DSLRs. The Instax Mini 9 itself is simple. Two buttons for simple operation, one to capture photos, the other to pop out the lens and turn on the camera. A dial is located in the lens barrel to adjust exposure for the lighting conditions. Built in the lens is a selfie mirror and as the position of the shutter button suggests, The camera is perfect for selfies. The viewfinder is located just above the shutter button and alongside the viewfinder is the built-in flash.

The backside of the camera is the instant film slot that swings out when you insert the instant film cartridge. The Viewfinder is located on the upper right corner along with the indicator light. The camera also has an indicator , located at bottom right corner of the camera that counts how many instant films are loaded in the cartridge. The other indicator is located at the instant film hatch that notifies you if a cartridge is loaded in the camera.

The Camera is as inviting to beginners and Pro photographers alike. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming simplicity of the control as it hides a much more complicated process to get your snaps printed on the spot.
