As we said earlier, the Instax Mini 25 is packed with neat features so let’s take a closer look of what it has to offer:

  • Adjustable print color brightness: The Lighten-Darken Control adjusts the intensity of colors to make the print finish brighter or darker.
  • Two shutter buttons allow vertical and horizontal shooting as you like which makes shooting in portrait and landscape models really easy and comfortable, something that we really appreciated when shooting with this camera
  • Fill-in Flash Mode: The camera detects the brightness of the background to control the shutter speed which means backgrounds can be captured clearly even in dark rooms.
  • A close-up lens for shots up to 35 cm from the subject enables you to create enlarged images like the one below:

Check out this cool video review of the camera:


The Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 is a great instant film camera that is packed with useful and easy-to-use features.  

It’s lightweight and compact enough to be easily carried around and would be a perfect camera to capture nostalgic moments at weddings and other special occasions.

If you are looking for an instant film camera with excellent features that are above the basic models then this is the camera for you.

We really loved the ease of alternating between portrait and landscape snaps, being able to adjust the intensity of colors on prints with the touch of a button and the selfie mirror was ideal for capturing in-focus pics.

The Fujifilm Instax Mini 25 will appeal to kids and adults alike, and even the more serious photographers will be suitably impressed with the smart autofocus and close-up features.
