CameraLabs: Instax Mini 40 Review

Instax is still Fujifilm’s bread and butter and this is the first new design they have launched in a while so Gordan from CameraLabs release a short review that you can watch above or read the bullet points:

  • The Instax Mini 40 is fully analog
  • Costs about 75 cents a print for normal size packs
  • Instax Mini prints are about business card sides or 2.4 x 1.4 inches or 62 x 48mm
  • It’s between the mini 11 and 70 in price but you can get a bargain on them
  • Mini 40 has a vintage style
  • The case continues the retro style
  • It has the look of the mini 70/90
  • Mini 40 lacks the greater creative options, exposure range, self times, mode screen, self-timer, mode screen, longer battery life, tripod thread
  • Instax 90 is the most full-featured camera
  • Mini 40 is the Mini 11 with a classic look
  • Optical viewfinder
  • Batteries are good for about 100 shots or 10 packs of film
  • 60mm lens that gives about 34mm on Instax film
  • You can pull out the front barrel to get a close focus mode of 30-50cm
  • This camera is best for relatively close subjects
  • If there is a lot of light the Mini 40 doesn’t have a high enough shutter speed to counter the light
  • Going Instax Square might be a better option for some or even getting an Instax printer
  • The camera is plastic not leather
