How to Use an Instax Mini Camera

  • Published on Jun 13, 2016
  • This is a short video I made as a guide on first time Instax users! I bought my Instax Mini 8+ in Amazon as an international version since they dont make the 8+ in US version. All the instructions that it came with were Japanese! Arigato! I dont speak or read the language so I had to google it instead. To help you guys out there like me who had no idea in the beginning, I hope this video helps!
    I have an Instax Mini 8 (with selfie mirror) in cocoa color which I like so much. I was contemplating between this and the limited edition blue from UO but I loved coffee (and this color looks like one) so much that I chose this. Enjoy!

    And you are suppose to shake it anyway. -_- an you guys saying it will ruin the picture but its perfectly fine.

  • basicteaa
    basicteaa Month ago

    Stop saying "don't shake it" and plus why would you say stop shaking it when you already know that someone already said it? Like that's so aggravating and dumb, you guys just want to be extra and annoying.

    Some tips: Don’t shake the film once it comes out and don’t push the film cartridge into the camera very hard, it ruins the chemicals inside the film.
    Your kid is really cute btw :))

    1. You’re NOT supposed to shake the picture
    2. You didn’t even show or explain how to put the Polaroid film into the Polaroid camera.
    I was hoping to learn about a Polaroid camera in this video, but you didn’t teach us ANYTHING in this video. Unhelpful video. Disliked 👎

      after you take the black cartridge out the foil wrap you just put it in the camera like that.

    You don’t have to shake it because the actual image is inside which also means it’s ok to touch the middle

    Wait hold on, don't shake the film, because there will be a distortion/ discoloration on the film, that's why some of your pics has damage,

    ANNABEL ;D 2 months ago +5

    heeeeey guuuys... if you know not to shake the film then you clearly don't need to learn how to use an instax camera -
    so why are you here?

    no offense tho
