Visiting St. Louis with the Fuji Film INSTAX Mini Camera [Sponsored]

Wardrobe Oxygen: Fuji INSTAX Camera review and giveawayWhen we decided to take our cross-country trip this summer, we knew we had to bring our cameras to document this epic experience! When Fujifilm offered me the opportunity to try out their INSTAX Mini 70 Instant Camera I KNEW it had to go with us on our journey! While Karl and I took our regular cameras, the Fuji Film INSTAX Mini 70 created mini-mementoes for each place we visited and was such an awesome addition.

The INSTAX Mini 70 is Fujifilm’s newest addition to their popular line of Instax cameras. These cameras are so cute with their retro vibe, but are lightweight and chock full of modern details. The Mini 70 has an updated camera design, improved picture quality especially in dark scenes, and a new selfie mode with a little selfie mirror next to the lens and a tripod socket. This camera is designed to use Instax Mini style film, which has 10 sheets per film cartridge and delivers instant photos the size of a credit card.

Wardrobe Oxygen: Fuji INSTAX Camera review and giveaway

The camera is surprisingly light and so easy to use, we handed it over to Emerson so she could capture photos from her point of view. The first city on our road trip where we used the INSTAX Mini 70 was St. Louis, Missouri. We were impressed by how crisp and colorful the pictures were and it was fun to wave them in the breeze and watch them develop before our very eyes.

Wardrobe Oxygen: Fuji INSTAX Camera review and giveaway

Our first evening in St. Louis, we took a walk from our hotel down to the Gateway Arch and bumped into a family we’re friends with from back home! We had no idea they too were on a road trip; it was such a random but fun occurrence. Meet me in St. Louis, even if it’s by accident! To commemorate our meeting, we used the Fujifilm INSTAX Mini 70 to take a picture of our kids together and it was great to be able to immediately hand it to them to take with them.

The pictures even have a retro vibe! I can’t wait to see all the photos at the end of our road trip that are taken with the INSTAX; I think they’ll make for an amazing collage we can hang in our home and use to remember this amazing family road trip!

One Wardrobe Oxygen reader will win a $100 Visa gift card to purchase an INSTAX of their own!

  • Eviltreefrogs August 10, 2016

    I would love a Fujifilm INSTAX in my life because it would finally allow to me to showcase the photos I take. I always have my camera with me along with my cellphone for backup and although I take thousands of photos a year I rarely ever get them printed. It takes time and me sitting at a computer for a while and who has time for that? With the Instax it’s instant, I take the photo and I can immediately put them on my wall, my fridge, my desk, etc. I would love to be able to do that!

    I love to bring a camera with me while walking the dogs. Invariably I catch a flutterby, an owl, a plant in bloom, a tree bark that cries out LOOK AT MY CHARACTER. The ability to print – credit card size – means I can add them to a home grown greeting card. THANK YOU.

    Side note:
    Do you remember the instant cameras that created sticker photos? Those were awesome, and I’m sure I’ll love reliving my instant photos days with this camera, too.

    My daughter’s been asking for the “old fashioned kind of camera that prints out the pictures”. I expect the neighborhood squirrel will be the artistic subject.

    My family will be going on a trip to attend my daughters wedding later this year. It will be the first time that we have five generations all together in one place! I would love to have the chance to win the Fujifilm INSTAX so that I can have photos of this event to give to all my dearest relatives!

    I’m the camera buff in the family. It would be used for capturing family moments, girls weekend and time up at our land. Glad you guys had a great time on the road trip.

    I’d love one of these cameras, and I know my kids would have a great time fighting over, ahem, sharing it on outings and ramblings about town!

  • snaphappy August 2, 2016

    Oooh! Would love to win this! Would capture photos of my kids . . . what else? 😉

  • Nikki Butgereit August 2, 2016

    I could say that I would take lots of artsy landscape photos, but in all honesty I will probably use it to take even more pictures of my dog. 🙂

    I just moved and want to take pictures of my new home — especially since there’s never room on my phone!

  • Cindy August 2, 2016

    I remember the old Polaroid cameras and watching the photo develop in your hands. This would be so cool to show my kids and my husband’s, the camera buff, grandchildren. I volunteer at an animal shelter in the cat room and would love to use it to capture kids adopting their own cat or kitten(s) so I could give them the picture.

    Would love the chance to win!

    I am the “photographer” in the family, and would love for a chance to win the Fujifilm INSTAX! Thanks!
