Instax Mini Instant Camera Review + Giveaway

Instax Mini and Photo Display by

Hi friends! I have a FUN FUN FUN review and giveaway for you today! A couple of months ago I was able to snag an awesome discount on an Instax Mini Instant Camera from the fabulous PhotoJojo Store! Do you Photojojo? Oh I do! They have a TON of information on all things photography and have a lot of focus on subjects like iPhoneography and and Instagram – which you KNOW that I love! They offer all sorts of information, classes, project and craft inspiration AND they have an awesome photo store that, trust me, you’ll thank me for mentioning! It is filled with fun photo gifts and gear for photographers!

The Photojojo Store, only the Most Awesome

The Photojojo Store is where I first happened upon the Instax Mini Instant Camera. It’s literally the modern version of the Polaroid! How FUN is that? Let me tell you – it is! I knew instantly that I wanted one. For random snapshots of the boys, fun scavenger hunts – and best of all – the MOST fun party prop ever. We broke it out at AJ’s birthday party (which I still have to share with you all, oops!) to take pictures of all the kids there in their rockin’ party hats. It was such a fun souvenir for them to take home with them.

But the Instax is also a great way to update and display pictures in your home or office – wherever you want to add a little personality! Right now I have a little Instax photo display up on our mantel.

For these pictures, I actually took our new handy Instax on our recent photoshoot with Dream Photography Studio. I knew our boys would be coordinated and that the setting would be fun for some instant camera awesomeness. So while Stacey was snapping some pictures, I got a few too.

And when I got them home, I hung them up on this awesome “Hang Out with Us” 2 tier hanger I snagged from Pick Your Plum earlier this year!

  34. Melissa Hartley says

    I remember having an instant camera back in the day .. a Polaroid I believe :) This little camera is so cute .. thanks for the chance to win it!

  35. Bunny says

    I wanted a polaroid camera so much growing up, and no one would get me one!! I want this so very much. Fingers crossed!

  36. says

    How cool is this, I miss having a Polaroid camera and now they have an updated version! I didn’t know about Photojojo either, but I will get out from under my rock and check them out also.

  37. Sue says

    I think this is a great idea. I recall something similar from years ago. Would be nice to have one now.

  38. Georgia Beckman says

    This is EXACTLY what I need to capture my grandchildren. My digital camera is less than stellar. But even if I get a good pic, if it’s one I want to hang in my home, I either have to go somewhere to print it off, or print it off my printer, which is even LESS stellar than my digital camera. :(

  39. says

    I love the Insta Max- I have one that has been commandeered by my daughter! It would be great to win one so we don’t have to wrestle for who gets to use it!

  40. Debbie Welchert says

    I miss the old Polaroid cameras so much. My dad loved his polaroid and would take it almost everywhere. I would love to have one of the Instax Mini Instant Cameras. It would be so much fun to have around. I know I would turn into my dad, which would be okay with me. I would have a lot of great pictures of my grand kids for the frig.

  41. Lizzie T says

    I have been drooling over this camera for a while now and have yet to take the plunge!!! It looks like so much fun! And a excuse to make some mini scrapbooks and other fun photo gifts! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  43. Margot C says

    I used to love Polaroids so I am sure that I would be crazy about this. I like the cute way you used it as a prop at the party too.

  44. Barbara Stenby says

    My son (17) is a photography major, he has been wanting one of these for EVER! I think Fuji is as good if not better than polaroid. what a great way to display your photos also! Thanks for the site info! Great Review.

  45. rebeka deleon says

    i love that it is small. i remember my parents had one of the instant cameras that spit the picture from the front and it was really big.

  46. T Manahan says

    Ooh! Thanks for this review & offer! This would be an absolutely wonderful resource I’d use for pictures almost every day. Yes, please!

  49. Richard Hicks says

    What a very neat little camera. Kind of like older polaroids. Like the featuers on it and takes good pics too

  50. golden storm says

    I love how the photos come out so similar to polaroid photos,,i love it,,love the old fashioned things,,this is like the new and the old mixed into one!

  51. diana says

    i loveee Polaroid cameras! although im more into the old school ones, i love this one too! its modern but its still a Polaroid. ive always wanted one of these, i love taking pictures and i think this would be a great camera.

  52. Catherine says

    I was just feeling nostalgic for Polaroids (my grandma used one) the other day. This camera is so charming!

  53. wendy b says

    Great, thorough review. I definitely would love to have one of these babies. I miss the old Polaroids.

  54. amy says

    Wasn’t sure if i was to comment here or under the review link – so going to copy and paste! great review – not sure it is the first though – a few decades ago in the eightees they had a tiny instant camera that instantly printed the little pictures – and they were stickers – very cool. It was called the i-zone camera however i guess this is the most modern version – the 21st century version! I especially love the hang with us wire hanger – think I’m going to pin this review to my pinterest to check out later when I can look into buying them. Thank you for the heads up!

  55. Debbie says

    What a great camera.PERFECT for our family gatherings here on the farm! I could send the grand kids home with memories!

  56. Lourdes G says

    Wow I would love to have one! It is so compact and takes great images. Thank you for this giveaway :)

  57. Ricky C says

    Saw these in Narita Airport! They sell so many different colours there. but it’s too bad I didn’t bring any money there :(

  58. Jeff Legg says

  59. says

    I used to have a polaroid camera and I loved it. Even now I would love to have a camera that prints the pictures out instantly. I have a family member that is a performer and many times friends want their picture taken with him. I have to use my camera but I have no way of giving them the picture right then. So this would be great to have.

  60. alejandra castro says

    I love the idea of a instant mini camera! its like a newer version of a Polaroid camera. Its also a great reminder that somethings never go out of style they just update.

  61. Jayden H. says

    This looks amazing! I think I might buy one if I do not win the giveaway! I love how you hung them up!

  62. doan b says

    I would love to have one of these! I went to a party for an older couple a few years ago and there were snap shots of their children as they were growing up attached to board on a table. I remember how nice that was.

  63. Geoff K says

    I was sad to see the Poloroid sink into oblivion, so it’s awesome that a modern variation has taken its place — the photo quality looks great, and I love your choice of display!

  64. Amanda Sakovitz says

    This is the first time hearing about this camera. I love the look of it and would love to win it

  65. Allison says

    This camera looks incredible. I never remember to actually print my digital photos, so to have instant gratification and to be able to actually display my photographs would be so awesome. Thanks for the review!

  66. Julie Simpson says

    I love this idea I remember how excited we were as kids for our parents to take these Iva and I took them of my kids and they ate in their 20s. I have a grandson now and would love to catch these prescious moments.

  67. Theresa Reed says

    Wow!! That’s a cool camera. I love the pictures you took of the boys. :). Thanks for sharing.

  68. Wee Yi Xin says

    Always wanted to get an instant camera and first thing that came to my mind was always a Poloroid. But after reading your review about the Instax I might get an Instax instead as it is much better! Thanks so much for the review!
