instax mini 90 {polaroid camera}

March 25, 2017


This is the polaroid camera I received for my birthday!!  Isn't it just gorgeous?!  It's so cool to have a camera that takes such vintage-looking photos.  And not to mention the photos are instant!  If you've never used a polaroid camera before, basically how they work is you push the button to trip the shutter like you would with a normal modern camera, the photo you took (which looks just like a white piece of film at this point) spits out of the top slit, and then you place the film in the dark for about two minutes to let it develop.  
I bought the film here and the camera here.


WHAT KIND OF CAMERA DO YOU HAVE?
HAVE YOU EVER USED A POLAROID?

  1. Wow this is so cool! I remember my mom telling me that polaroid cameras used to be really popular. I think I almost like them better than digital xD

  4. Oh my gosh, I'd love to have a Instax camera! I don't have enough money for it though, and the film does get pretty expensive, so it's been told, but perhaps someday. Anyways, the photos you took are so cute. <3

    1. They are lots of fun!! Yeah, the film can get pricey—but if you get big packs of it all at once, sometimes it's not too bad. Aww, thanks! Glad you liked them. <3

  5. THAT LOOKS SO DANG COOL!!! I've always liked those kinds of cameras!! For a while my family and I went to a charter school and in art class the teacher would take pictures with a camera kind of like that??? But it wasn't as classy looking and the pictures you had to flip back and forth really fast. I think. It's been a while!! I think I was seven then and I'm 16 now, so yeah. It's been a while.
    You and your photography, girl!! You're amazing! Really, you should enter a contest or something!!! I KNOW YOU WOULD WIN IT WITH EASE!!! Or else the judges faces would have to be on backwards. But seriously! Those pictures though!! THAT BABY!!! UGH BEATRIX STOP BEING SO CUTE YOU ARE KILLING ME!!!!! Whoever said looks can't kill???? They have never met Beatrix whoever they are!!
    Gah! She is such a happy baby!! At least in all of your pictures of her!!
    Awwwwww I miss babies I need one in the house again!!!! (HEY MOOOOOOOOOMMMMYYYY??????????? Um yes, I'd like number 13, the special that comes with red curly hair and... Oh let's say 6lbs 6oz?? Thank you very much) ;P
    I have a phone, whose camera is getting scratched somehow!!!! I have been super careful with it, and ONLY dropped it like 3... Dozen... Times... BUT IT WAS AN ACCIDENT. THEY SHOULDN'T GET ALL SCRATCHED UP WHEN I SAID I'M SORRY!!!
    Dumb lenses... :)
    Anyway! GREAT post!!! I love ALLL the pictures!!

    1. Hey!
      They are so much fun, for sure!! Ooo, that sounds cool. Okay . . . I think I know what you're talking about . . . Is it called a flipbook or something? I just looked it up, and I feel like that might be what you're describing—but I don't know. :D
      Thank you so much!! I recently entered into the Finger Lakes Children's Photography Contest and the results should be out sometime in May 2018. Aww, thank you!! You are so sweet. <3 <3
      Isn't she just SO cute?!! Totally agree! Whoever said looks can't kill has definitely never met Beatrix! :D
      She is a super happy baby! She rarely cries and is always dancing and "talking". It's so cute. :D
      LOLOL
      Oh no!!! That's sound frustrating. Yup, darn lenses indeed. ;D
      Thank you!!!

    2. I looked it up, and I think it's just a Polaroid 600, and "back in the day" you had to shake it or flip it back and forth really fast so the chemicals could... Swish around? Develop?? O_o not sure.
      I am So good at these describing thingys. I should be a detective person!!! :P

      Well I expect you to win, so you'd better!! I'll go see about the judges faces. I want this fair and square!
      I'm just speaking truth!! But you're welcome none the less! ;P
      Awwwwww I just want to hold her and kiss her for EVER and EVER AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!
      Indeed.
      My pleasure, my dear!

  7. LOVE!!! I just got the money to buy an Instax mini 8 camera! I'm so excited!!! <33 Have you seen the other kind of polaroid cameras?

    1. Thanks!! That's awesome!! The mini 8 is a great camera as well. I got to idea to buy mine because my friend from CO had the mini 8. The photos are really great quality. Pretty much the only super noticeable difference between the 90 and the 8 are that you can turn off the flash on the 90, which is a definite plus. But the mini 8 is a perfect one to start with! Both are super nice. :D

    2. Your welcome! Okay. :) I thought the only difference was it look a little more old-fashioned. So that's nice to know!!
      Yeah!

  8. Ah! xD So many posts I need to go comment on all of them! :D *Grins*
    I have a Panasonic Lumix ZS50 that I just bought. (And by the way, sorry I haven't been around for a while I just got back from a family trip.)
    Yes! Although I do not own one personally, I have used my sister's polaroid and it rocks! ;)
