if you buy the film off of amazon you'll get a great deal for those of you worried about the cost of running the camera. I've had mine for sometime now and love it because of its simplicity and how beautiful the photos turn out once you get a handle on the "mechanics" of the camera

Can you take a video or a picture without the film on that polaroid camera?

Does it come preloaded, or so you have to purchase the film with the camera?

Does the camera come preloaded/ with a pack of film, or do you have to purchase a box/pack of film when you buy the camera? (Please Reply)

It depends on where you get it I guess, because I just purchased mine at Michaels (YES the 40% coupon works on it) and it did not come with any film. I ended up paying $15 for a pack of 10 film there in store but plan on buying the 50 pack on amazon for $37 in the future which saves about half the cost.

I just got this camera today and I am already loving it. I'm tired of harshness of pixelated perfection- there is something very 'real' about taking pics with a cam like this.

Thanks for the review - enjoyed it.

when fijifilm sends you a camera to review, do you have to send it back or is it yours to keep?

Thinking of buying this camera for guests to take fun instant photos at my niece's wedding.Do you think it would fit the bill? What do you reckon would be the best shooting distance to get best results?

I think your best bet would be to get the Fujifilm Instax Share Smartphone Printer, it's only $150 and I think it would be a better fit for wedding pictures

That way you can have a dedicated phone set up to take pictures and people can print out their favorites. You won't waste as much $$ on film because you can choose which pictures to print AND you can email/text people their pictures as well :D

I got this camera for a Christmas gift. As an analog photo enthusiast, I was pretty excited to try one of these out.

I must say, it works extremely well for what it does. I do think a bit more control needs to be available over shutter speed and focus, however. I've only tried it with indoor shots thus far. I'm very eager to take it outside and try some landscape photography, but it being the dead of winter, there's nothing to photograph.

I am very happy with the preliminary results. I'm not even mad about the price of the film... You can take a picture and have a physical print in seconds, which is still very much not how the digital workflow works.

how do i connect my camera to my laptop to view images , rather than printing them ???????? Anyone


July 15, 2016, 1:43 pm

it could be saved on the cameras data log actually , people should be able to ask questions on here without feeling humiliated ....... HOW RUDE !!

It's not digital..you simply can't. ^_^ remember the old time when there was no digital version of photos only the film one?


September 25, 2016, 3:16 pm

can anyone tell that should i buy this camera for my friend or is it only for kids??

Does that mean "10 photos" in a single pack, or does that mean "10 packs" of film, with "x" number of frames in a pack???

Poloroid has a camera called poloroid snap ,it takes a micro sd card to store pics on and you can program it to take only the pictures you want ... It cost about 179.00 and has ok reviews , it also has a 3 in or screen for taking pics . I don't know much more but wal mart has them and if you have a problem with it or just don't like it they will refund your money within 14 days ! Good luck
Ps there is also a cheaper version of this camera but you do not have the option to pic only the pics you want to develop >>>
