Available in five colours (white, blue, pink, yellow, black), the Instax mini 8 looks like a big kids toy from its matte plastic finish, chunky lens and big buttons. Despite its hulking size compared to today’s compact cameras, the Instax mini 8 weighs just 307g and is 10% slimmer than previous Instax models. It's not exactly pocket-friendly, but it’s light enough to throw into a bag without trouble.
Stopped by for a while at shop tonight. I got Instax Mini films for our trip to Cambodia next week and a new 2Nul album in baby pink color because my is almost full.
In other camera stores at Singapore the usual Instax Mini film price is about SGD 15 to 20, so Passion Gadgets price is way cheaper, a real money-saver shop for Instax fans. That is why the store can be quite crowded, especially on weekends and during holiday season. ^_^
The Instax mini 8 only uses Fuji Instax film that comes in packs of 10 and measure 62 x 46mm. That’s about the size of a credit card, so these pictures are on the small size. Packs can cost around £15 making the mini 8 a costly investment in the long run.
