Polaroid Camera and Fujifilm Instax Instant Film Cameras

There's nothing quite like posing for photos with friends and family. Whether you're chasing an outdoor adventure, enjoying a night out on the town, or just having fun at home, each moment is a memory that can be captured and shared. Instead of forgetting to share your digital photos with others, give them an immediate and physical memento with help from an instant film camera. These lenses follow the tradition of instant-developing photos made popular by Polaroid Cameras back in the 1970s. After pointing and shooting, your image instantly prints onto a special individualized film. Pass your pictures around, give them to friends, or frame them and place them on your desk with a Polaroid camera or Fujifilm Instax camera.

DSLR vs Instant Film Cameras

While the DSLR and other digital cameras are often heralded as the most versatile picture-snapping devices, they can't do everything—and they definitely can't print immediately. Instead, they're designed for photo-editing software and creative experts. But if you're just interested in snapping photos with friends, you might not be all that invested in editing that file to adjust color contrast or exposure. Instead, opt for instant satisfaction with these easy-to-use picture snappers. Using DSLR cameras generally involves a fair amount of tinkering, knob-twisting, and image sharpening before you can even pose for the photo. Meanwhile, an instant film camera is just that–instant. There's no need to adjust anything or zoom in or out. Many of the more modern versions of these quick photo developers use a bright flash function to automatically adjust shutter speed and brightness to ensure your photo looks just as it should. Instead of plugging your DSLR into your computer or swiping through filters on social media, you'll be pinning photos to a bulletin board.

Don't Forget the Film

Each Polaroid camera or Fujifilm Instax instant film camera can print picture after picture of you, your friends, family, and even nature shots—as long as you've got enough instant film on hand. These skinny sheets are affordable and easy to pack in a backpack or purse, making them a must-have for any photo-worthy event. Nearly every instant film camera can only hold around 10 sheets at a time, so if you're interested in sharing lots of exciting memories with friends, bringing along an extra pack or two isn't a bad idea.

Hip with the Kids, Intriguing for Artists

While seasoned shoppers may remember passing photos around to their friends when they were young and using Polaroid cameras, kids these days live in a digital world (and might be unfamiliar with a photo that can develop right before their eyes). They're likely more familiar with digital photo frames than a 4" x 6" image. Share an exciting experience by using a Fujifilm Instax instant film camera with them, and watch their eyes light up as they learn more about traditional photography and how an image develops–without ink and without a printer. You can watch your selfies develop in real-time, then smile as they bring a Polaroid camera along with them to their next sleepover or soccer game. Younger folks (and all folks, really) tend to enjoy a Polaroid camera due to its simplicity. You only have to use one button to take a shot, though some devices do come with extra functions to make each photo different. Add a second exposure to your image for an artistic or whimsical effect, or use a timer function to ensure everyone's in the image (including you with selfie mode). You can even turn the flash on or off for a more discreet picture-snapping process.
