Instax mini 70 REVIEW.

camera review 18 de ene. de 2016

Few weeks ago, I contacted the guys at聽@instaxEsasking for a collaboration. They were so nice and responsive and through聽Wonder Photo Shop Barcelona(the very first one in Europe)聽they sent me the brand new聽Instax Mini 70.聽Well, they also sent me an album and so many refills so that I could use it as much as I wanted.

I have to say that I had some previous experience with instant cameras. Last year I bought for myself聽(using the excuse that it was my birthday)聽an聽Instax 210.聽The older and bigger sister.聽Nothing to do one with the other.聽While the聽210聽is big and heavy to carry around, the new聽Mini 70聽is probably the most versatile and easy to use instant camera in the market right now. In fact, when I was traveling around聽South East Asiaduring this last summer聽(2015)聽I carried it around (the 210)聽and it was most of the time a pain in the ass to have and way too bulky to travel on a minimal way聽(they way I love to do it so).聽I wish I would have had then my聽Instax Mini 70.

At the very beginning of this聽2016聽I had the chance to spend a 26 hours in Barcelona聽and I thought that it was the best destination to try out my brand new camera. Or that was the original plan. Since there was a girl that took it from my hands and was using it almost more than me!

I remember the look on her eyes when we took the first selfie. She was amazed! And to tell the truth it’s a quite fun camera. Her favourite part was when you took the picture and a couple of minutes after you can see the result on paper and live!

If you are looking for a perfect and flawless picture perhaps you shouldn’t buy these type of instant cameras, since it is a bit harder to focus (but they are getting this way easier with the automatic mode on their new model)聽and to achieve a big quality聽photograph. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a camera to have fun, a device that you can use to make聽other people happyand something small and easy to carry around, well, that’s definitely your camera.

That was my best try on making the Review of the Instax Mini 70. If you still have doubts about this camera and you would like to read more聽芦techy禄聽stuff, I found this聽quite awesome and complete review that you should definitely check out.
