[Intro Music] Hey guys! We have gotten so many requests to craft the Fujifilm Instax Mini for our American Girl Dolls.
And what better way then to review and look at a real one first so we know what it looks like, we know how it works and then we can make one for our dolls.
Fujifilm sent us this instax mini 8.
We’re going to open it up, take a look at it and then we are going to test it outwith our dolls.
So here it is out of the box.
This right here is the view finder.
This is the picture taking button.
Then we have the flash on the front.
And this is the exposure sensor.
So don’t cover that up with your finger.
And then right here, this turns it on.
Sothis little button you pop it and the lens comes out.
And then to turn it off you just push it back in.
And there are different options right here that you can turn it to, Inside,Outside, Sunny, Cloudy, that kind of thing.
And then there is a place to put your wrist band on both sides at the top.
Here is where the film pops out once you take a picture.
It takes batteries and it does come with two AA batteries.
So as soon as you open it out of the box, you can start taking pictures as long as you have film.
So you just pop the batteries in there.
And then this is the door, in the back, where the film goes.
So you just put the film right in there.
And we are going to show you how to put the film in, in just a second.
Very easy to open and close.
This shows you how many exposures you have left.
And then this is just like a grip and a cool design.
And that is it.
That is the body of the instax mini 8.
So cool! Now, there are so many different types of films that you can get for this instant camera.
Really cool, Shiny Stars, all these RainbowColors, Polkadots, the Candy Pop.
So we are going to show you what those look like too.
Now, to put the film in all you do is take the little foil package out of the box, and then there is a little place up top where it shows you where you can rip it open.
Very easy to open, this film.
And it comes out in this little carton like this.
And there is a Yellow line on it.
The Yellow line tells you where to line it up.
So open the back,you put it in with the yellow line, lined up with the yellow line on the camera andit is easy, you know exactly what to do.
And you will see the film count change to 10 once you take the first picture.
So go ahead and snap a picture at anything.
You’re not actually going to take a real photo.
You are going to turn it on and then press the photo take button; right here.
And then that front cover of the film is going to pop up, just like that.
So you can really aim it anywhere once you take it.
Now this just uncovers the film and now lets turn it back around.
It shows you-you have 10 photos left.
Isn’t that cool?And then to turn it off you just push the lens in and it closes and it’s off.
Now that the instax mini 8 is fully loaded, lets take it out for a little photo shoot fun.
Her ewe go.
Gotta position that doll just right, so she doesn’t fall over.
So once you take the picture with your instax mini 8, just give it a second, the film will come right through the top just like this.
And it is so fun! And as you can see, you don’t seethe picture right away, you gotta give it a few seconds and then the image will appear.
Instant cameras are so much fun! We just love these mini photos.
We could take photos of our dolls with this all day.
How about you? [Picture Taking Sound] Okay, now that we have used all of the film in the camera, you’ll see that it says 0, so no more pictures.
So all you do is open it up and you take the little cartridge out.
Just like that.
And now it’s time to reload with more film.
We love how easy it is that any age can use it.
