Instax Mini - mini review

My Instax Mini arrived over the weekend!!! YAY! Of course I am in love with it already, as if I had any doubts.  I read a lot of reviews before purchasing, I wasn't sure if I wanted the bigger version (Instax 210) or the Mini.  

As a polaroid lover & collector I have to disagree some of the complaints I read:
1. Most people complained about the size of the camera & how it was bigger than they expected, etc.  Compared to all the other instant cameras & instant camera backs I own, I find this one to be a really good size, I feel comfortable carrying it around in my purse & I definitely will. (I do tend to carry large purses...)
& 2. Some reviews mentioned a dislike for the flash always going off.  I've always loved the varying results of instant film, the sometimes washed out subjects or the complete opposite - really bright, saturated color. I haven't had the chance to really use it outside, but so far the flash hasn't bothered me. 
Overall I *love* the mini, the finished photo is about the size of a credit card! It is a super fun replacement for my beloved polaroid camera film for the time being!!! 

Hope everyone had an awesome weekend, most of mine was spent working.  I love how busy I am this time of year - means Christmas is right around the corner!! Happy Monday!!
