In a world in which iPhones are nearly hijacking the photography industry, film cameras are a welcome diversion. And of those, Fujifilm Instax is your best bet.
It’s far cheaper than the cost of multiple disposable cameras, doesn’t make you wait or trek to the nearest CVS to develop your photos, and comes in cute pastel iterations that are small enough to fit in your bag. A necessary update from the outdated Polaroids of yesteryear, the Fujifilm Instax marries the ease of a digital point-and-shoot with the grainy quality of a film camera. Simply pick up a twin pack of film for $20 at one of the countless online retailers that carry them, and rejoice in the filter your Instagram photos have been missing.
