As you might already know if you follow me on Instagram, INSTAX is now in Nigeria and luckily for me, I’m one of the people they chose to try it out and to be honest I’m obsessed with it. I’ve always longed for an instant camera and finally my dream came true on a platter of gold. In today’s post I’d be reviewing the Instax Mini 9 and answering the top 5 questions I got concerning it.

This is my favorite feature because it helps you see exactly what your photo will look like when it’s printed it because I really don’t know how to take selfies except it’s with a front camera.
Close Up Lens
I guess this is for taking close up photos or flatlays. I haven’t tried using it as I haven’t found it necessary yet.
Light Settings :
You can adjust the lighting like you can on proper digital cameras as it has four different lighting options plus a high key mode for those very dark rooms, ya dig?
Question 1 : Can it be used for blog and Instagram photos?
Answer : No it can’t as it’s an instant camera with no memory space. What it does is print out pictures immediately it’s taken.
Question 2 : What’s the picture quality like?
Answer : It actually prints good quality pictures, not a good as the standard film print photos and although I’ve not tried other instant cameras, I think this is just great as far as I’m concerned.
Question 3 : Where can I buy it?
Answer : Thankfully Instax is now in Nigeria and you can buy both camera and films from malls around you like Megaplaza, Hubmart and even online on stores like yudala.
Question 4 : Does it come with the film?
Answer : Yes when you get it, you get a pack of film but once that is used up you’d have to go back for more.
Question 5 : How much is it?
There is no fixed price as different sales outlets charge different amounts for this instant camera. Depending on where you’re buying from, the price varies between 30,000naira – 40,000naira which I think is quite reasonable and the films retail for 3,500naira for a pack containing 10sheets.
Today I spent time at the beach with a faulty charger and dead phone but thanks to my instax mini 9, I was still able to take photos while at the beach and for this reason I think it’s very okay if you decide to get it just Incase you find yourself in my kind of situation.
