Best Point & Shoot Film Cameras in 2020



Fujifilm Instax Mini 70 - Instant Film Camera (White) Review:


Purchased this along with the instax printer. I just couldn't decide as I saw uses for both.

They weigh about the same to be honest. The printer may weigh slightly more as there are more moving parts involved. I weighed them to be about 10 Oz. Or roughly the weight of a half full water bottle. Heavier than a regular banana. :)

About the size:
Still a bit bulky but will fit in a fanny pack or purse. The design is sleek so I don't feel silly busting it out during occasions.

VS the mini 8:
I spent a lot of time debating which camera to get. In the end it came down to style and efficiency. I anticipate a lot of bad shots using the mini 8. And at roughly 80 cents a shot you will eventually reach the price of a mini 70. The mini 70 also has automatic exposure control and a selfish mode with mirror, so you have less of a chance of messing up your shot. The design of the mini 8 is perfect for teenagers or college students. If you are a male or feel a little too old to bust out what looks like a toy, I'd go with the 70 or 90 even.

VS printer:
It all comes down to use. A camera is good for capturing moments on the spot. The printer would be good for the scrapbooker or to hand out as a gift. Although the instax share app does give you the option to print directly, it is still not as satisfying as printing it instantaneously from the camera.

Cons:
The battery :( cr2 is a weird battery choice but there are rechargeable options that hold less power. If you you want to be green, you're going to to want to spend the extra 15 to 20 dollars on rechargeable batteries. The mini 70 allows for about 30 shots on cr2 batteries.

5 stars. Because purchasing a mini 70 means you did your research and know what you want and what you will get from the device. It is more of an investment than purchasing a mini 8 for half the cost. Buy it for yourself or the friend/family you know will appreciate a sleek design vs a toy.

Halina Ansco Pix Flash 35mm Film Camera Vintage Point & Shoot Auto Focus Review:


I didn't even know they still made these! Had a younger friend come out to visit and her obsession will cameras was cute. She bought roll to put in a disposable camera and I had to buy her one of theses so she could use it. Works just the way I remember them. Easy to use. Pictures come out as well as any film camera can come out. No light expose inside. Held up really well. Flash wouldn't work with the cheap dollar store batteries and we needed to buy the Duracell.
