Cameras Instax — fashionable toys for children and adults nostalgic for their youth. But why are these cameras in the XXI century?
When our office came Fujifilm Instax camera down (in different versions, specifications, and, most importantly, in different shades, as we love:) — SQ6, 9 Mini, Wide 300, Mini 90 and the Mini 70, about three days we just moved.
Well, pretty well exhausted. Especially Mini 90 is so old school! Mini 70 — a yellow one! And Mini 9 — little blue! In short, you understand:)
And then I remembered that originally we had an important goal: to figure out why they even needed in an era of total and universal phone-photo-fication? What good are they, not to mention that, “first, it’s beautiful” (C)? And why have they suddenly become so fashionable?
Dismantled the camera, inserted the cartridges, began to look in the viewfinder, press the buttons. In short, graduated from mi-mi-minicat began to think:)
- Method N1, a practical
Jan: from the time Polaroud’s know that these Insta-photos are irreplaceable, if you have 4580 pairs of shoes and one head, where a long time nothing fit. Your loafers I remember in person only due to the fact that once put their portrait on the box. (No, just store them in their original boxes is not an option: if you have multiple pairs of the same brand, you still can’t remember which is which.) Lifehack 2018 — to remove the contents of garment bags. As it turned out, a very reduces the search for “the coat” and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. Yeah, I thought of myself. No, don’t thank, and not much cheering:)
- Method N 2, aesthetically-Christmas. And not only
Christina: These photos — great interior decoration in the style of “late, hugge”. On New year you can even build something like garland. At my house, for example, so they now hang. Yes, you can print photos from your smartphone. But it is necessary to go somewhere that troublesome, and for the price – plus or minus the same (cartridge Fujifilm Instax 20 photo is 1249 RUB on the official website, and photos of instamate – 50 RUB).
Alternatively, they can even hang on the fridge. With a simple double-sided tape. In my opinion, looks more interesting than annoying all the magnets.
- Method N3, a safe-erotic
Olga: When going to see a lot of movies about cyber-spies begin to think, and it’s great that all our pictures are stored in the cloud service, where at any moment by accident (or by chance) can get someone else:))) And that Big Brother is always watching you and controlling your every move? No matter what I shot on the iPhone, I immediately started to haunt contextual advertising. If I shoot on Fujifilm Instax, this is only I know. And those I want to show it. Each photo is unique.
You can even arrange an erotic photo session and then you burn it, and not be afraid that someone will remain negatives (and therefore an instrument of blackmail:)
- Method # 4: touching and family
Jan. Despite the presence of the iPad, iPhone and computer, my mom still has my photo (and, more importantly, well beloved grandson) with me in purse. If such a photo is not — she is terribly upset that nobody could prove that he is a she Alain Delon. Arguments “discover What’s up, you got a million recent photos from Instagram I tossed all”, not something that is not work — lead to the opposite effect. Mom starts to get upset because I just said something of what she understood the word “fresh”:) In General, mom better not to upset and not to worry. Using Instax took some shots of her Alaindelon, and even their own self made. (This option is from the Mini 9.) She happily put the photos in the wallet just climbed up in size.
Olga: I also gave my mom such a snapshot. Well, not specifically this, — like:)
Sometimes it’s just to make mom happy.
- Method N5: for inspiration and creativity
Lena: Mudbone — cool theme. They even released a special grid. Jan Z. brought them from Paris from the store Maison du Monde, which considers a super place to buy all home-designer stuff:) But something similar I saw in Moscow H&M Home. In General, these lattices to hang Instax-photos, interspersing them with letters, postcards, inspirational pictures and motivational quotes — fun. And most importantly, you can regularly change and update their picture of the world.
- Method N6: production and pragmatic
Understand that not all do and not all suitable method, but in our edition there is beauty wardrobe with cells, and we are eternally confused about whose is whose, and on what shelf to put mascara and some shampoo.
Since then, as we got these camera down, the problem was solved:)
