Instant Photos with Fujifilm Instax Camera
Reliving those Polaroid days
With the new age photography techniques and cameras available in any mobile phone’s, life has been really easy when it comes to capturing the moments. In this era of clicking the pictures, stuffing the phone memory or SD card memory with lots of pictures and then saving it on the hard disk, we hardly get time to print the pictures and get the hard copy. Except the wedding albums, people surely prefer to save all those memories in their gadgets, rather than printing them and put it on display in any album.
The vintage style polaroid cameras that had film rolls and needed sometime to develop those images have actually become a part of the collectables. In this time of saving lakhs of pictures in your phone and laptop, the Fujifilm Instax Camera comes with instant print images of the moments that we capture. Bringing back those days of clicking pictures and cherishing the hard copy.
This cute camera which comes in five colours, looks like a toy camera that will give you instant hard copies of the pictures that you capture. Producing the images is no more a task when it comes to this camera.
When it comes to photography, this camera has very basic principles. There are five different exposure levels to choose which will help you to shoot pictures with the right level of brightness.
One can find options like Indoor Night, Cloudy Shade, Sunny and slightly cloudy and sunny bright to shoot as per the weather conditions. It is much easier to operate as the options given makes it easier for the photographer to understand the best option and then click the picture with the right creativity. Apart from this, there is a new High Key mode to shoot photos with extreme levels of brightness and a software atmosphere.
With no autofocus, there is a shooting range of 0.6m to 2.7, therefore one needs to get close while shooting with this camera. This camera also has a fixed shutter speed of 1/60 seconds.
To capture the picture one just needs to choose the right option by twisting the dial and see through the viewfinder and click. This camera lacks autofocus therefore it is a bit difficult to get the best pictures in the beginning. But once you know how to operate and get it right, images can be detailed and produce the soft colours. One can also get the old picture effect by using this camera who love to keep it a polaroid-style look. This camera is best if you want to shoot people around you and might be a tricky one to use if capturing the scenery and landscape.
Even while, the cost of this cute little toy like camera is effective as compared to other digital cameras, still to use it on a regular basis might seem like pinch in your pocket. This camera comes with Fuji Instax film of 10 and measure 62*46mm. To make it easier it of the size of a credit card and therefore the picture size is smaller. Also the packs to refill the film costs higher therefore this camera isn’t cost effective for the long run. This camera runs with two double AA batteries and the film pack that you purchase new could be fixed by opening the back cover of the camera to fix the film set.
This camera is a good fun for those who still cherish those school days moments of clicking the picture and then waiting for its result till we print it. But apart from this, if you are looking out for any good quality and higher resolution then do not expect much from this camera. Also, even if you get the settings extremely right, it is difficult to shoot with this camera in the night or low light.
Being a basic point and shoot camera, it becomes easier for anyone and everyone to use this camera and you can also give this camera to your kids to use, provided they know to print the copies thoughtfully and wisely to avoid wastage.
With nothing complicated like any other DSLR or digital cameras, this camera has less functions which help photography easier. This camera can be best used to keep the memories and share the moments with the strangers you meet while travelling. Instead of clicking pictures and then sharing it through internet or mobile phone, this camera allows you to get instant pictures and it could work as token of memory before you depart.
The final verdict of this camera would be a quirky and an easier piece of clicking pictures which is less complicated and a cakewalk to use. Instant pictures being a cherry on the cake For those who always want the golden days of polaroid cameras back, this is one of the best options available in the market.
