I picked up a Instax Mini 50s for a decent price, considering what they are going for used online, such as EBAY, or even Kijiji/Craigslist. The big difference is that this is new. In Box, unused, untouched by human hands (err, not really as it was a display model). But it is new, with a full manufacturer warranty!
In actuality, I purchased this camera solely for my wife to use, as she has been wanting this one for a while. So I gladly obliged picking it up for her. I can see the increase in "Selfies" while she is working, but she pretty much does that anyway with her cell-phone. This time it'll mean she's, at least, using film!
Back to the camera. This is a sleek looking little body, with a Piano black glossy finish, triple shutter releases, one for Portrait, one for Landscape, and one for SELFY, fill flash for backlit situations, and even a ±2/3 EV (darken/lighten). It's a FIXED Focus (mostly) that will focus from 0.3m to 3m, and with the press of a button, will focus from 3m to INF.
It is not exactly a small camera, even with the MINI name, and won't fit into anything but a large pocket, or a big(ish) handbag.
The lens is decent, considering it's a doublet lens, but then again, Kodak used a Doublet on many of their cameras, such as their TwinDAR lens. It was a basic doublet lens which usually allowed the possibility of focusing. For instance, the Kodak Brownie Bullseye 6x9 Bakelite camera used a Kodak TWINDAR lens.
The two ViewFinders (Portrait or Landscape) are okay, but can be a bit difficult to use as they are small. The film is very easy to load, and the film is ejected from the camera at the top/side, depending on the orientation of the camera. There is a TRIPOD socket for use at slow-speeds when shooting landscapes in low(ish) light.
All in all, this is a very nice camera, which will bring much enjoyment to the instant photgrapher.
