Instax mini 9 REVIEW

Eric Neal mentions in his Instax mini 9 review- “Terrible pictures, no matter what I do. Don’t buy this”!
Brad Riley says in his Instax mini 9 reviews that the Instax mini 9 he received was defective. He says that he tried 3 different packs of film from different lots hoping it was that (and those aren’t cheap!) but each image came out the same, 1/2 of the picture was blank with an odd circular border.
Another person Irving Scott who purchased the Instax mini 9 says in his review-“The color of the camera I received doesn’t look like the pictures shown on Amazon. Amazon shows it to be more of a white, but what you receive is a light gray”.
Caleb Patrick mentions in his review of the Instax mini 9-“ Not the best quality photos having used it only 3 times”.
Manual Pierce states in his Instax mini 9 reviews- “The pink one didn’t work correctly. I couldn’t get the camera to turn off, except by taking the batteries out. The lens was pushed in all the way but the indicator light stayed on. Even though the lens was pushed in all the way, the camera was still able to take a picture. Of course the photo turned out black since the lens was closed”.
In his review of the Instax mini 9, Freddie Perez says that the camera did not come with a film so you will have to order them separately.

Instax mini 8 REVIEW
In his review of the Instax mini 8, Victor Howard mentions- “This camera is not for dark skinned individuals. I’m African American, more of a chocolate tone, and when I try to take pictures indoors with my friends you can barely see their faces (they’re black too). I thought maybe it was because I was inside, but even when I take pictures outside (even on sunny days) and change the settings accordingly, the pictures turn out so dark.
Jay Murray mentions in his Instax mini 8 reviews that he wasted a pack of 60 films with this camera. He says he tried everything, but it just won’t develop!
Lela Price who tried the Instax mini 8 complains in her review- “When I turn it on it starts taking 2 pictures automatically when I have film inside and when I don’t”.
Pedro Perry states in his review of the Instax mini 8-“ It was looking amazing until 26 photos in the flash stopped working! We wasted loads more film trying to get it to work, replacing batteries and film. Sadly the flash never worked again so the album came to a halt”.
Another user Angelica Taylor who bought the Instax mini 8 seemed upset with the Instax mini 8 and says-“Broke within 7 months of having it, it didn’t face any physical damages, just stopped working all of a sudden. The button you use to take a picture broke. All instructions are in Chinese and does not come with the film and when we bought the film it does not work”.
Phil Houston mentioned in his review of the Instax mini 8 that the red flashing light did not flash or only came on for a second. He adds that when he tried taking a picture it never developed.

Instax mini 70 REVIEW
Shane Brady says in his review of the Instax mini 70 that the camera is overshadowed by the constant freezing and mode switching that occurs during use.

David Pena seems extremely disappointed with the Instax mini 70 and says-“Don’t think the Instax mini 70 is worth the cost. It’s a bit too small. When you try to look through the lens, it gets cumbersome. It doesn’t take good photos. My first photo was so dark and the top part was over exploded and turned out to be blank.
Most pictures that develop appear incomplete. Most of the time, pictures develop maybe 80-90% of the frame, with a large portion of the image not developing at all. It is difficult to find online support to understand and fix the issue ourselves”.
Sammy Sherman who tried the Instax mini 70 syas in his review-“ Digital “photo count” stopped working properly within the first week. It only shows half of the numbers”.
Instax mini 90 REVIEW
Danny Watkins says in his Instax mini 90 review that the camera cannot load any film pack and the LCD shows E and gets stuck there.
Charlie Briggs mentions in his Instax mini 90 review- ‘It doesn’t turn on even after charging the battery all the way. Not worth the cost. Manual control is minimal and it’s nearly impossible to get the shot you want due to a viewfinder that is misaligned”.
Steve Myers who purchased the Instax mini 90 says in his review that the flash stopped working in a few months. He adds that the camera comes with battery charger that will not work in the United States unless you buy an additional adapter. He also mentions that there is no information in the description to indicate that it was a non-US model.

Perry Mccoy states in his Instax mini 25 review that the pictures are not good and the camera broke after 5 pictures.
Archie Burgess says in her Instax mini 25 review that straps, batteries, and close-up lens are included. However, none of them came with the camera.
Terrence Hubbard complains in his Instax mini 25 review-“ Pictures did not come out very clear. The film is expensive. I am disappointed with the picture quality.
Blanca Bradley mentions in her Instax mini 25 review-“The camera is cheap, so don’t expect pictures to come out super focused and with a good light quality. But I didn’t think it was going to break in the first film exchange”.
Tricia Hopkins who bought the Instax mini 25 mentions in her Instax mini 25
review-“Every time I power it on, the lens expands out with noise. Cost of the film (I realize you are paying for convenience), and the size of the pictures (they are too small)”.
In his review of the Instax mini 25, Adam Holt claims that it doesn’t have a zoom. It just has an extra lens that you add that is supposed to do close ups but it doesn’t do it very well. Flash feature won’t turn off.
Don Osborne in his Instax mini 25 review mentions-“ The actual photo area was very small and colors not true, film gets jammed, but getting a good shot is hard more times than not”.
Patrick Peterson claims in his Instax mini 25 reviews- “There is no option to turn off the flash, which is a tad annoying because the camera will force flash in situations where you would not like an artificial light source. Also, there is no self timer and that “close up” lens they provide for you isn’t quite up to par because you won’t be looking into the viewfinder to shoot said shot”.
