      Good camera with average quality, really fun!

      I have been wanting this tiny instant camera for a few months now. Not a single day passed without me thinking about it. And I can say that now that I have it, I am absolutely delighted!

      Overall:

      This is an instant camera by Fujifilm, so not a Polaroid, but it works the same: you buy instant films, but them in the box, press the button and taadaam! You have a printed picture! The case looks quite sturdy, it's made of plastic but good quality. It has a flash and you have to use it (no way to turn it off).

      Good points:

      - It's really easy to use. Basically, you just have to press the "on" button, select the mode and shoot. Most of my pictures have taken less than 30 seconds to be shot so far.
      - It's really fashionable. Obviously, it will always look great with any outfit.
      - The quality is not too bad. I read that it was completely blurry and all, but it's not true. Of course, the picture is not as crisp as one you can take with your smartphone. But it has this vintage look that you're gonna love! The colours are a bit faded, which I personally love.
      - The size is perfect as well! It's not too big, ideal to carry with you all the time!

      Bad points:

      - The film is really expensive, unless you buy big bundles. The problem is that you cannot take instant film on a plane, so it's a problem for me to buy big bundles since I travel a lot by plane between my two homes.

      Conclusion:

      It's a nice camera to have to have fun with your friends or on a trip, but it cannot replace your smartphone or digital camera. Plus, the flm being quite expensive, you have to think twice about what moment you want to capture and print for yourself to enjoy!
