Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 Instant Camera

Forget your DSLR. This camera is all about fun and freedom.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 40 Instant Camera

Fujifilm's new Instax Mini 40 looks like an old Kodak Brownie camera, with its faux-leather texture and silver metal accents.

The Verge's Becca Farsace reviewed it and had this to say:

Play both informs my creative style and relieves me of stress — which, as a person who is tasked with reviewing cameras, is hard to always satisfy when using a camera. But the Mini 40, much like the Mini 11, has so few options, a very lightweight feel, and, at times, such unpredictable results that I can sit back and just have fun when using it. Any further thought about photographic theory while using the Mini 40 is excessive and rarely yielded me better results.

As we continue to vaccinate and case numbers go down, I can see the Instax Mini 40 becoming the perfect summer camera for beaches and barbecues. Forget ISOs and f-stops--just point and shoot and capture the fun as it happens.
