PROS

  • The Mini 70 makes instant wallet-size pictures that can be passed around.
  • The improved exposure system compensates for dark backgrounds on flash photos.
  • It has a selfie mirror that lets you frame yourself and a selfie button that refocuses at an arm's-length distance. There's also a tripod mount and a self-timer for group shots.

CONS

  • There's no microSD card, so each photo is always on paper.
  • There's no negative, so you can't reproduce a photo without copying the print.
  • Film is a little on the pricey end for heavy use, costing about $1 per shot.
The Instax Mini 70 is the latest in Fujifilm's line of instant-picture cameras. The Mini 70 uses wallet-size film that costs about $1 a shot and is available only from Fuji. Marketed as a fun camera, a front mirror lets you frame yourself and friends at an arm’s length, and the selfie mode button pre-sets the focus at 1 to 2 feet. When you take a flash picture, the Mini 70 automatically adjusts exposure. Other modes include macro and distant modes, which set focus and exposure appropriately, and the high-key mode that gives a brighter overexposed look. With no microSD card and no negative, you’ll need to copy prints to share them.

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 is a lot of fun. But to be honest, that’s all it’s really designed to do; just be something for fun.
