Instant cameras have been making a huge comeback in recent years and we can totally see why. These simple point and shoot cameras captured the hearts of the previous generations as they have with the current one. The joy of having a print just seconds after you take an image is addictive. And watching the photo develop in front of your eyes is some sort of modern magic for sure. Instant cameras also offer additional creative possibilities such as the Fujifilm Instax Square SQ20 that can photograph double exposures or the Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 that has the vivid Hi-Key mode.
Which to choose?
There are so many styles to choose from depending on your preferences. There are fun, colourful options such as the bright Fujifilm Instax Mini 9, or the pastel Fujifilm Instax Mini 11. If you are going for a classic look then the Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 will go with any event and outfit. The Fujifilm Instax Square SQ1 is available in three stunningly stylish colours for a Polaroid square vibe. Or, if you are tech-savvy then the Canon Zoemini S or the Fujifilm Instax Mini LiPlay offer great opportunities to get creative from your phone as well as the camera.

Photograph in the moment
One of the biggest draws to photographing with an Instant Camera is that it often makes you be more in the moment of the image. There is no chance for post-production, the image will appear exactly as is just a few seconds after it was taken. This slows photographers down to consider what it is they would like to photograph, and the decision often comes down to: ‘what will make the best memory?’
Capturing a memory that can be treasured and passed on is at the heart of Instant photography. The main reason that these cameras are so popular right now is that in a digital world, to have something physical to hold is special. These once-in-a-lifetime images cannot be reproduced, or printed multiple times (well, except in the case of the SQ20). They are truly unique. Not to mention the fact that these cameras cannot be treated like a 64GB memory card, having just 8-10 images in a cartridge will make you stop and consider every photo for sure.
Having a collection of instant film images is what every Instant photographer aspires to. And of course, they look extremely aesthetic hung up on a string of lights!
