Camera instant printing allows you to get a printed photo almost instantly, on average this procedure takes no more than a minute and a half. This is the most important quality of this device, and it allows you to apply it, for example, when making experiments or when photography of nature – wherever the snapshot is needed.
Instant printing devices provide a ready shot immediately after the button is triggered. With a huge variety of models, they combine their overall mechanism of work. Getting photos made in two methods.
- First method – manifestation of reagent photocartyr. Materials used for camera-type cameras consist of protective, sensitive and developing layers. In essence, they are paper and film material at the same time. The film, passing through the device in the form of the roller, manifests itself, as special liquid falls on it.
- The second method – with the participation of special crystals. A special film is applied, which acquires the necessary shades using a specific temperature regime and special crystals. This is the newest and promising technology, and the photo obtained in this way goes bright, do not dull, they are not visible traces of fingers, and there is no moisture.
Of course, there are advantages and cons. One of the most important advantages is the very compact type of this technique, besides, the weight rarely exceeds the mark of 500 g. The uniqueness of the received photos (repeatedly cannot be copied) can also be attributed to the undoubted advantages of the device. And, of course, pleases getting a photo instantly – you do not need to spend time printing and look for a printer.
Of the most significant drawbacks, the quality of the received photos should be highlighted With professional pictures, they do not compare them, a quick shot will always give up a good professional.
High price for the camera itself and the equipment is not pleased. One replaceable cassette is calculated on 10 shots, spent quickly, and the cost is by no means cheap.
Review of species
Before choosing an ideal model, it is worth find out what the instantaneous prints are different from others and which one is better, and then consider all kinds.
When mentioning snapshots immediately pops up the name Polaroid. Such a model of the apparatus at one time was present in almost every family. It was released in the late 90s, while even at the present time will not be difficult to acquire replacement cassettes for him. Such a vintage thing will delight with its uninterrupted efficiency and perfect appearance. Polaroid camera will be a find, because the film cassettes and cartridge cassettes are suitable for it. Previously, the cassettes produced Polaroid Corporation, there were 10 frames in each cassette, and the snapshot appeared for a minute.
At the moment, the company ceased to issue this product. Replaceable cassettes produces another well-known company, but the personnel in it is only 8, and the manifestation is delayed for 20 minutes. Another point – the purchase of the simplest classic apparatus is not particularly expensive in the money plan, but the acquisition in the future the cassettes will be in a penny.
Since the photoemulsion in Polaroid behaves pretty unforeseen and unstable, the pictures will always be unique. Each new photo will be different in color, saturation and sharpness.
Here you can also allocate two large series, namely amateur and professional devices.
- Amateur series will suit those who do not plan a lot to shoot. Model feature – optics with fixed focus, made of plastic, minimum number of settings, available cost. This technique works quickly and easily, you only need to insert a replaceable cassette, press the button – with the receipt of the picture there will be no problems. According to the characteristics, all amateur cameras are identical, may differ only by external design.
- The professional classic series includes a more serious model Polaroid. Here there is a glass optics with manual tuning focus, the housing is made of metal and genuine leather, there are models that have foldable design. Due to the settings, it is possible to highlight the desired object, which is an undoubted advantage. Makes the device already better and clear pictures.
These include absolutely new models that are issued at the moment. One of the leaders in this area – Japanese Fujifilm Corporation, They represent a huge selection of cameras for every taste and color, as well as their line of cameras with a double frame. You can choose a suitable model as for a child (present for the kid settings) and for a professional photographer. In the devices, there is an opportunity to take a snapshot with darker or lighter, as well as select the range of the subject. Cassettes for such a model of equipment are relatively inexpensive, and the photos are manifested in seconds.
Poolaroid attached his hand to create modern photographic equipment. They released a device with a preview (with a screen where you can view the photo), besides, you can apply a filter to the selected pictures and only after that print. Another camera that deserves attention released Impossible. There is an automatic mode, a huge number of finest settings, to act as you can use the pre-installed application on the smartphone. In this way, the phone is transformed into the remote, “Little Assistant” will help select the desired settings directly on the gadget screen.
The price for this model is very high, but here will be true connoisseurs of this camera.
They serve devices for printing the instant photo made by a mobile phone or tablet. This modern printer will help print hundreds of copied photos. We produce this gadget almost all companies that are somehow related to instant photography. It is worth considering that this device only prints, you can choose and edit the picture, but it does not know how to photograph such a device. Suitable ideal to those who want to get paper shots immediately and print them without too much effort.
In principle, digital models with embedded printers are also available, they are capable not only to print pictures, but also to shoot video.
The devices can also send the desired information via USB cable, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth.
One of the first places in the ranking of the best takes Model Instax Mini 90 Japanese company Fujifilm. Something like the film retro apparatus resembles. Cartridges for it are budget, there are 3 types of shooting: landscape, usual and macro shot. For clear photos, a unique sensor is built-in, which automatically recognizes the distance to the target. Preview frames not included in this model. The device is presented in classic brown and black.
The next in the top of the popular models is the camera of the German company called Leica Sofort. This chamber can be seen in blue, orange and white, in the kit there is a portable belt, the battery is enough somewhere on 90-100 frames. The camera pleases a variety of shooting modes: “Party”, “Self-portrait”, “Nature”, “People” and other. From the front part it is equipped with a small mirror. In comparison with the previous model, this is already more improved.
Mini Camera Fujifilm Instax MINI 70 worthy of higher praise. Tiny, its weight does not exceed 300 g, but equipped with modern technologies. It has an outbreak and mirror for selfie, as well as manual focus adjustment, thanks to which the photo is obtained juicy and alive. The choice of colors is just huge. Ideal for those looking for a neat and easy option for every day. Another “baby” weighing 200 g – Polaroid Snap. It has automatic focus and 3 filters (black and white, natural and with a purple tint). Suitable for creating a collage and has the ability to connect a memory card at any time.

Another megapopular photo camera instant printing – Kodak Mini Shot. Neat, compact, with flash, automatic focus pointing, has its own application for overlaying various filters, can print photos of two different sizes. Printing is made on the paper of its production Kodak, which is much cheaper than the use of paper of other manufacturers.
When using the device, only those consumables should be applied, which are written by the technical characteristics and parameters of the selected device. The photo paper does not need to be purchased separately, as it is already built into a replaceable cassette. Cartridges are selected, based on the characteristics of the model, they all have their own individual signs, and the versatility here is inappropriate. When placing the cartridge in a special compartment, in no case cannot affect the fingers of the film. If you fulfill all the estimated precautions, it will continue to protect the camera from breakdown and allow him to last for a long time.
When buying consumables, it will be necessary to look at the shelf life, as an overdue goods simply will not manifest. Store “consumables” should be away from direct sunlight, in a dark and dry place.
Criterias of choice
- When choosing a camera, you should pay attention to the number of modes – what they will be more, the more interesting the result will be. Optimally have in arsenal and macro mode, with him even small parts will not remain in the shade.
- Another important selection criterion is the presence of a memory card that will allow you to store a lot of frames, and if you wish to immediately print the necessary.
- Special models have been created for lovers of selfie – it is necessary to pay attention to the presence of a put forward mirror on the top of the camera. You only need to look at it, choose the desired angle, click the shutter, and getting a finished picture will not make yourself wait.
- If editing and retouching are available in models, you can update the pictures and add interesting filters.
- It is necessary to navigate and at the time of the manifests – some cameras quickly cope with the release of the picture, other this process delays until half an hour.
- If the model is equipped with a frame meter, it will be possible to determine when the cartridge should be changed, however, this function is not at all necessary.
- The presence of the Zoom function will reduce the placed objects and objects.
Equally, it is important to pay attention to the characteristics described below.
Type of food
Photo equipment for instant printing can be charged from standard batteries, as well as from a removable or built-in battery. Batteries can be purchased at any store, they are easy to replace, but since the consumption is big, then you will have to change quite often.
If the battery is used, it is easy to recharge it if necessary, after which you can work further. And the discharged removable block can simply be replaced by replaceable.
When choosing a model, you should also pay attention to the size of the camera itself, because not only the price of the device directly depends on this, but also the future size of the pictures. If there is a desire to get big pictures, then you should not choose miniature models, it is better to stay on a more overall copy.
The most common sizes – 86 * 108, 54 * 86, 50 * 75 (this is taking into account the white border around the snapshot). But the quality of the photo does not depend on the dimensions of the camera, so the main thing is that it is convenient to use.
To properly use shooting modes, you need to figure it out a bit.
- Auto-Moscow Use mostly newcomers in the photo, because the camera automatically sets the shutter speed, as well as white balance and built-in flash.
- Software. The device will allow you to select a white balance, flash, but install automatically aperture, shutter speed.
- Manual mode. Here you can independently change all settings, the camera does not make any actions automatically, which allows you to control the entire process of creating a photo.
- Scene mode. The principle is very similar to automatic mode. You need to choose the desired scene (for example, “landscape”, “Sport” or “Portrait”), and the camera is already setting up the setting, based on the specified task.
In principle, this is the main in the chamber – the quality of future photos directly depends on the permission directly. With the help of the matrix it turns out an image. In times, When there were no digital technologies, instead of the matrix, the film was used, and if the image was preserved on the film, then in the digital photo storage is contained on the device’s memory card.
When choosing a camera, experts recommend to stop on the matrix from 16 megapixel and higher, since with a smaller pixel content, the image is blurred, the clarity in the contours disappears. The presence of a small number of pixels leads to the sensitivity of the camera to the shake of the hand and a small displacement of the camera in relation to the subject.
It should be aware that the correctly chosen matrix is the key to the perfect photo, and choosing the camera, you should start with it.
How to use?
Almost all models of cameras are very easy and easy to use. They are created for quick photographs without difficulty. Some of them are equipped with tripods, which allows you to set the desired frame.
Photographing such cameras is a pleasure, if you wish, you can get a wonderful photo by one pressing the button. Also a huge plus is the lack of need to buy a photo paper for printing pictures separately, everything is equipped with a cartridge.
Considering the reviews of the happy owners of this technique, it can be noted that how many people, so many opinions, but in one opinion coincide. Unanimous owners of such devices are that the photo is obtained truly fabulous beauty. Maybe they are not ideal (although with modern technologies such a fact is already unlikely and is found only in the cheapest models), but the fact that the photos are unique, no one argues.
Buyers recommend missing the first cameras, and thoroughly think about how this technique will be used, how often and under what conditions. If this is a fleeting fun for a couple of pictures, then you probably should not invest big funds in the purchase and you can do the budget option. But if we are talking about long-term operation, then a model is needed, first of all, on batteries, and removable, because it is not always possible to recharge the built-in drive.
Also advise you to stop your choice on multifunctional devices that are able to work in various modes, to create in the photo, execute macro. In addition, these devices are very easy to use and can be an excellent adult gift and a child. Well, if the model will be the function of approaching the object, since almost all the pole-shaped copies react poorly to the subject – the object that will be located far, simply turns out to be lubricated and fuzzy. If there is no such function, then you should not shoot from afar and count on a wonderful frame. According to reviews, it is also seen that when buying needs to choose models with a replaceable lens. There are such, it is worth just a little searching for Internet spaces or in household appliances stores.
Having received the second life, the cameras of instantaneous printing became many times better than their predecessors – Small errors were eliminated, now the footage have more yellow and black, which so lacked earlier. Frames are obtained in full color scheme. From significant drawbacks, consumers note quite a high price of the product – it varies depending on the capabilities of the device (than the device “smarter” will be higher than the price of it). Despite this, users and happy owners of a truly unique device in complete delight. If you close your eyes on a high cost, otherwise the acquisition will give only pleasure and bright, memorable emotions.
