The Best Instant Cameras

  • Instax EVOMore modern than some of the classically-inspired Instax models on our list, the Fujifilm Instax EVO is a hybrid Instax Camera that prints instantly. Mum can easily capture beautiful images, sort through them on her smartphone, and print off any of her favourites in the instant format via Bluetooth. It’s so nifty. It also features effects and filters, a selfie mirror, and a remote control. This is one of the best first instant cameras for those just stepping into the instant world.

  • Instax LiPlay. The Fujifilm Instax LiPlay is great to have at home and at parties, as well as being compact enough for travel. It’s probably one of the best instant cameras for beginners, as it’s incredibly user-friendly. Mum can add character to her instant images with the in-built frames and she can enjoy the sound byte feature to give memory-capturing an extra layer.

  • Instax Mini 99. This instant camera is a nod to yesteryear’s classic film cameras, making it one of the most suitable Mother's Day gifts for photographers. It boasts a striking design and incorporates a dedicated colour effect wheel for effortless creativity, along with a brightness control dial that simplifies achieving the ideal exposure. This is great for flattering subjects and mum’s selfies, which she’ll love.
  • Instax SQ1. Just after receiving her gift, mum can begin snapping moments on her SQ1 and then watching them quickly develop on her Fuji Instax Square Instant Film. The camera is sleek and comes in a range of colours, including an on-trend, earthy terracotta. This classy camera includes auto exposure and a dedicated selfie mirror, too.
  • Instax Mini 12. The Fuji Instax Mini 12 is beginner-friendly, so it’s a great option if mum isn’t very well-versed in the instant camera realm. It’s stylish to look at and features a selfie mode and powerful built-in flash, making it one of the best instant camera gifts out there. Images appear in about 90 seconds, an impressive feature we still can’t get over.
  • Instax Mini Link 2 Printer. With this beauty, printing images instantly from your smartphone is easy. It’s incredibly portable, being such a lightweight printer, so it truly packs a punch. Connect to multiple smartphones at a time via the instax mini Link app, and each user can add fun frames and filters to their images in the app and then press ‘print’. It produces a hard copy in about 15 seconds.
