The Best Instant Camera

  • 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 40 Kit. 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’s striking, runs on easy-to-find AA batteries, features a flash, an optical viewfinder, and automatic exposure to flatter 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 11 The Fuji Instax Mini 11 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 Printer. With this beauty, printing images instantly from your smartphone is easy. It’s incredibly portable, weighing only 200 grams, so it truly packs a punch. Connect to five smartphones at a time, 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 as little as 12 seconds.
