As you can see, my scanning skills still have a long way to go!...
I was actually really impressed with the Instax Mini. I bought it from work (my camera collection is rapidly increasing the longer I work there!) and I found it so easy to use and not too heavy to throw into my bag and carry around all day. The film was ridiculously easy to load into the camera as well - way less fiddly than the Diana film.
The settings are fairly easy to get your head around - that photo in the middle of the trio above was the first photo I took, and how could you not be happy with that? - but the photos looked really washed out if I took them in really bright light. It's great for taking photos inside and at night, but during the day in a well-lit area? Not so much.
The film is quite a bit cheaper than Polaroid film, too; about $2 a photo rather than $5. The only downside that I could really find was the size of the photos - they come out as a credit card size rather than a bigger Polaroid size. But, I've found a really cute way to display them (which I'll show in a later post).
And as for the festival itself, that was pretty awesome too. It was one of those weekends that left me ridiculously happy (and not because of all the cider that was consumed). I was kind of surprised that my favourite act of the day was the Hilltop Hoods, although Kimbra was of course amazing as well. You can read the whole review of the day here.
Thanks for reading! If you have any other questions about the camera (or the festival, or anything really, I'm not the boss of you) just leave them in the comments.
