Disclosure: I am participating in the FujiFilm Canada campaign managed by SJ Consulting. I received compensation in exchange for my participation in this campaign. All thoughts and opinions on this blog are my own.
Little One and I both really love taking photos. I just have this need to capture snippets of our life for posterity. The holidays seem to be when I take lots and LOTS of photos though. It’s the one time in the year when my whole family is together.
I remember when I was a kid, we would take photos with my parents’ FujiFilm camera, and have to bring the film to the pharmacy to get the photos developed. It used to take a week or so to get the photos back. Then came the digital age where photos were all left on your digital camera or smartphone (unless you actually uploaded them and got them printed). I swore that I would not let my baby grow up to be a jpeg., and for her first year, I made scrapbooks with the photos I took. Then life got busier, and most of the photos are still on my devices.
What I love about instant cameras is that there is no long wait time to get our photos developed. FujiFilm has a variety of instant cameras and printers that are easy and fun to use!
What I love about the FujiFilm instax SQUARE SQ10 is that it is both an instant camera and a digital camera. I like that I have the ability to preview my photo in the digital screen and the option to edit and print instantly.
FujiFilm instax SQUARE SQ10
Little One has been going around the house, taking photos of everything! It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas. We have no snow yet, but our decorations are up!
We really like that we can get the control and composition of a digital camera, with the fun and instant enjoyment of an instant camera.
The camera is compact and sleek. It is not bulky at all and fits nicely in my “Mom purse”. 🙂
I have to tell you that I used to be a total “point and shoot” person. It is exciting to me that there are also different shooting modes to choose from. This is one reason why I enjoy using the instax SQUARE SQ10 so much. You aren’t limited to just one style of shooting, like many of us amateur photographers may sometimes find ourselves in. Now you can get creative and add personality to your photos through your shooting style. It also features double exposure, bulb exposure and even built-in macro. The built-in macro totally surprised and amazed me. On an instant camera?! So cool!
The FujiFilm Instant Film “instax SQUARE” is sold separately and comes in packs of 10 prints.
instax SHARE SP-3 Printer
If you’re anything like me, you’ll likely have hundreds (and hundreds!) of your favourite photos still on your phone. I have to admit, I may be slightly obsessed with the instax SHARE SP-3! Why? For instantly printing photos from my phone, the Fujifilm instax SHARE SP-3 printer is great. It is really easy to print photos and I love having instant access to my favourite photos on my phone that I want to print right away. Believe me, there are many photos I want to print!
I was thinking that if I love the instax SQUARE SQ10 so much, there would likely be quite a few people on my list who would love it too!
