Digital Camera World Verdict

If we’re looking for one instant print camera that does it all – plus we’re satisfied with the credit card sized print format output from the device itself – then the Fujifilm Instax Mini Evo camera has much to recommend it. Once we’d discovered what all the unmarked buttons do, and got over our initial period of familiarization, it quickly became apparent that, unusually, this isn’t an instant print camera we’ll rapidly become bored of. And that in our book makes it well worth the asking price.

Why you can trust Digital Camera World Our expert reviewers spend hours testing and comparing products and services so you can choose the best for you. Find out how we test.

Fuji has enjoyed major success with its Instax range of cameras these past few years, arguably doing more to bring instant print photography back to the masses than the original and resurgent Polaroid brand. It’s no surprise therefore we’re seeing more Instax cameras in differing sizes and operational configurations hitting the market. After all, being able to take a photo and get an instant print of it to share is something our smartphones as yet cannot do. Though of course there are apps available to link our phones to a standalone printer, and indeed a camera.
