Don't you wish your camera was instant like mine?

Don't you wish your camera was instant like mine?

Hello. A couple of posts back I waxed lyrical about my cute new instant camera, the Instax 90 Neo Something. I thought you might like to see some of the results of my excursions with said camera (also, the last two posts have been distinctly non-visual - time to throw some images back into the mix).

Here we go:

A rhino. These were dotted around Sydney recently, all decorated differently. I love this photo.

So there you go. For anyone buying an Instax 90 Something (and everyone should), here are my top tips:

  • what you see through the viewfinder bears little resemblance to what the camera is preparing to capture. Be aware of what is on the borders of your shots - they will end up in the picture unless you get in closer than you feel appropriate.
  • stupid flash. It just lights up the wrong stuff, or washes out colour, or makes fairy lights look as though they are switched off, or makes legs look whiter than they actually are. Think carefully before utilising the flash and remember that it is automatic, so you have to turn it off yourself.
  • remember that it's only money and that it's more fun to take the shot and learn from it than to let it go and wonder how cool the photo would have been.
