Digital Camera World Verdict

The main appeal of the Fujifilm Instant Wide 300 camera is prints twice as wide as the credit card-sized alternatives output by the standard Fuji Instax 'mini' cameras in the range, presented in landscape as opposed to portrait format. The inevitable trade-off is however, a bulky camera body that is also double the size of its regular cameras, and one that struggles to look stylish or prove particularly portable with it. However when it comes to the pictures themselves, larger is definitely better in our book.

Credit card sized prints from the majority of instant print cameras are cute fun for the kids – who especially love them when they can be turned into stickers – but they’re probably not what most of us would want as our only memory of treasured places and occasions. 

For those seeking instant printed output closer in size to the default 5x-7 inches of high street minilabs, or even classic Polaroid film, there’s the Fujifilm Instax Wide 300. Imagine two credit cards or business cards with their longest sides touching each other and we get a precise visual idea of the size we’re talking here. However the actual picture size if we discount the white border is a slightly smaller 62x99mm.
