Fujifilm Instax Wide 300

The Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 is big in stature, so it is not ideal for those of us looking for a compact travel camera. That said, we just can’t get enough of the large size of the Fujifilm wide instant film, so we have to have this camera on our list. It runs on the easy to find AA batteries so you can be ready for a night of fun with just a quick stop at the convenience store.

The camera is easy to operate, while it still provides you with enough options to help you get nice looking photos in different scenarios, including an automatic flash, motor-driven focus, and exposure compensation. 

Polaroid OneStep 2

One of the most retro-inspired designs on the market, the Polaroid OneStep 2 is based on the original OneStep camera which was released in the late 70’s.

This new version features a lithium rechargeable battery with micro-usb charging, but most other modern conveniences have been omitted. Keeping things simple, the OneStep 2 includes a few simple features to help you get the best shot possible, including a self-timer, tripod socket, exposure compensation and an auto flash that can be manually disabled. It is also noteworthy for its being compatible with i-type film, which produces large, vibrant 3.1-inch square pictures.
