The Fujifilm Instax Mini 12 offers a fun and playful design that is approachable for beginners. However, those looking for a more traditional camera look may prefer the Instax Mini 40 or the Mini 90. Fujifilm has also released a new free app called Instax Up that allows users to scan and store their Instax prints online. The app offers simple editing controls and the ability to geotag and share images on other apps. While some may prefer the tangible aspect of Instax prints, the Mini 12 remains a top pick for its affordability and simplicity in entering the Instax world.
