Your new iPhone takes remarkable photos, but sometimes you want something a little different. There's no replacement for film cameras. We love the price point, quality, and bright colors the Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 instant camera provides. It gives you the best of all worlds when it comes to instant printing.

The Polaroid Originals Now I-Type is the best instant camera for the whole family. It has blazing fast autofocus, can take double exposure shots, and is available in 10 colors.

If money is your driving factor, you'll save a few bucks and still get a top-notch instant camera with the Kodak Printomatic. It's a point-and-shoot model with an impressive sensor and a wide-angle f/2 lens. It's pocketable and prints fast to boot.
