Even though there hasn’t been much news on the Polaroid front (seriously, I barely had to update my Polaroid buying guide this season), Fuji hasn’t been standing still. The entry-level Fuji Instax Mini 8 and 9 have always been arguably their most important cameras, serving as great entry-level cameras to draw people into the world of instant film. The new Fuji Instax Mini 11 is a huge improvement over the 8 and 9 in every way that matters. The Mini 11 is now one of my top recommendations for both beginners and for events like weddings and parties. It’ll take me a bit of time to update the whole site, but I’m thrilled that Fuji has finally simplified the controls of this camera to make it easy for everyone to get great results. Check out the full review for all the details!
I have a review for the very similar SQ1 coming soon, which feels like the Instax Wide companion to the Mini 11. It shares the same great simplified controls and cheap built, but unfortunately it is way too expensive. For most people, the Mini 11 is the far better buy at almost half the price.
