Fujifilm Instax Mini 7S Camera Review

Instant photography comes to Fujifilm with their Instanx Mini 7S which weighs only 11 ounces, features a built in flash and instantly prints out credit-card sized photos. Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn show how this snap and share camera could be the perfect holiday gift for only $80.

What You Need To Know

  • The camera measures around 5" high and 3" thick.
  • It feels very bulky for a camera that you're supposed to carry around.
  • It's hard to carry this around in your pocket or purse and feels/looks more like a kid's toy camera.
  • It weighs less than a pound.
  • There aren't any special features.
  • The film is very easy to load: line up the yellow markings and you're ready to go.
  • Turn the camera on by pulling the lens out.
  • There are only four picture settings, which is 4 more settings than a classic Polaroid but nowadays, it's nice to have more.
  • Photos come out instantly and are roughly the size of a credit card.
  • Indoor pictures came out fine while outdoor photos in bright light were completely washed out.
  • The only good outdoor shots were on a cloudy day or in the shade.
  • The viewfinder isn't the best when trying to take up close photos.
  • The distance between you and you subject has to be within 20" to 4". After that, you start losing the rest of your image to darkness.


  • $80.00


  • Don't Buy. The size of the camera, pictures and photo quality aren't worth it. If you a tried and true instant camera, go with a Polaroid. (How do we rate gadgets?)

    Yes, we know the difference. It was a typo. Please understand that sometimes a mistake slips through our copy editing. Thanks for the heads up and it's been corrected. :)

    i don't want to sound like a naggy bitch, but \"It ways less than a pound,\" is incorrect.. it's \"weighs\" for future references. With all the technology we have today, we should have grammar/spell check. How about you hire me for grammar/spell check. I know windows does it, but it's not like anyone knows how to use it. i do! and i don't need Windows.

    i love the show. wish i had G4...

    If it had a smaller price tag I'd probably give it a try. I miss my Polaroid :[
