Instant cameras, which produce a Polaroid-like snapshot that develops in
minutes, have become a sensation. "There’s nothing quite like taking
someone’s picture and then moments later sharing the only version of it in the
world with them as a gift," says Erin Lodi at TheWirecutter.com. And no
instant camera draws more love than the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90. It's solidly
built, with more manual controls than other instant cameras, and it creates
reliably good photos in auto mode (even at night, with the built-in flash). The
Instax Mini 90 comes with a rechargeable battery, charger and shoulder strap.

This is the web site of large NYC photography and electronics retailer,

technology. Over 180 instant film cameras and camera kits are available here.
Some attract only a handful of reviews, and some none at all, but at least one
instant camera draws tons of feedback, and a near 5-star rating.

The instant camera section of Amazon.com turns up thousands of entries

themselves. Still, it's worth sorting through things as no site we spotted has
more instant cameras listed, many of which accumulate hundreds and sometimes
