I love taking photographs. There is something about capturing those certain moments, whether you are using a cell phone, digital camera for on the go, or a SLR for more professional photography. But what I really love using the most are my Fujifilm Instax Cameras. With Canada Day coming, I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate than to use my Brand New Instax Mini 9 camera to help commemorate the event.
Starting this month the Instax Mini 9 is available at various retailers, and man I got so excited. I could wait to receive mine courtesy of Fuji (thanks Fujiguys) to share with all of you.
The Mini 9 comes in a 5 amazingly colors: Flamingo Pink, Ice Blue, Lime Green, Cobalt Blue and Smokey White. I opted for the Smokey White. Within minutes of it arriving, I was ready to use it. That’s how easy it is to use the Instax Mini 9. Even my youngest son enjoys taking it around and taking photographs of stuff he loves. Including himself.
The new INSTAX® Mini 9 has a front-facing selfie mirror right next to the lens, making it super easy to take proper selfies for you and your friends to enjoy and share on your social networks like Instagram or Twitter. Here is one my son took of us using the mirror. I love this feature for the Instax camera.
The Mini 9 also comes with a close-up lens. Unlike previous Instax cameras such as the Mini 8, you can now take macro style photos using this unique little lens which is included in the kit when you buy the Instax Mini 9, making those close shots easier to focus on.
The mini 9 like I said is super easy to use. Beyond it being a point and shoot camera with a selfie mirror. The Instax Mini 9 has new features and enhancements enabling the photographer to take brighter photos, perfect for parties, still life and even the great outdoors. Setting the brightness couldn’t be easier using the built-in dial giving you options to choose from. You can even take photos with softer impressions.
I think my favorite thing about The INSTAX® Mini 9 is that it instantly prints credit card sized photos that can be passed around, viewed and shared right away at any time. No waiting for developing or printing. Here is one I took of my son on the sofa.
Here is another photo my son took of me. I also love the frames. I can’t talk about the Instax without sharing with you all the unique and amazing photo frames that you can get, like this set I’m using to celebrate Canada’s birthday.
Instax has so many different frames to choose from, some you can even write on yourself to collect and share with friends, and all of them work with every Instax style camera.
The Instax Mini 9 is perfect to share your photos anytime. If you guys don’t have one of these cameras you have to get one. They are great to pull out to use and share at weddings, parties, school graduations, high school proms, or even a night out on the town. You can swap out different films to share with friends, and even create amazing collages or DIY gifts to give to others.
The INSTAX® Mini 9 will be available in June 2017 for CAD $99.99. For more information follow the Fujiguys on Twitter or Fujifilm Instax on Facebook for all the latest in photography, cameras, tips and tricks to help take your photography to the next level.

Disclosure: I received the above-mentioned product for the purpose of this review. Although Fuji sent me the Instax camera to try out, all opinions are 100% my own and come on — who doesn’t love an Instax camera that comes in Pink Flamingo?
