Sometimes we are tempted to buy the cheaper of the 2 because we can’t see the difference – or it doesn’t matter because we want a specific colour. I used to have an Instax Mini 8 and although nothing is wrong with it I was just too happy to pass it onto my sister when I received and Instax Mini 9 – and this is why:
The Instax Mini 8 and Instax Mini 9 is so similar that you could easily think they are the same, but the Instax 8 was released with a limited colour range and without a selfie mirror or close-up lens attachment.
Key differences between the Instax Mini 8 and Instax Mini 9
