Omits tripod socket No double exposure or other artsy features

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 12's easy one-button operation, handy selfie mirror, and compatibility with quality Instax Mini film make it the best entry-level instant film camera.

Released right on cue in line with Fujifilm's three-yearly schedule, the Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 becomes the latest in a long line of Fujifilm instant cameras for newcomers, succeeding the Fujifilm Instax Mini 11. The Instax Mini 11 already occupies...

Easy to use Improved viewfinder accuracy Low-cost film packs

Still overexposes shots in bright sunlight Like holding a wet fish Prints are a little small

We have an idea in our minds of what the perfect instant camera for newcomers looks like, and with every iteration the Fujifilm Instax Mini series takes a couple of steps closer to it. The Instax Mini 12 is child’s play to use, produces lovely-looking...
