What is an instant camera?

There’s retro, and then there’s our big range of instant cameras. A whole new generation of people are discovering the fun of instant camera photos. And at JB, they’re doing it at a great price. Instant cameras are exactly what they sound like they’d be. Take a photo and instantly print it out. It’s the way it used to be, and it used to be great.

And don’t forget our big range of other cameras, including film and disposable, compact and point-and-shoot cameras, which are just as fun and can take your snapping even further.

How do instant cameras work?

Instant cameras are a lot of fun, and they’re simple to use. That’s because they’re full of some cool tech that lets you do more than just point and shoot. You can play around with the images, either in the camera or on an app, and their wide angle gives you even extra room for everyone. Some of the cool photo features in our range of instant cameras includes:

  • Four photos at once
  • Grab the best shot from a short video
  • Make a collage of four photos
  • Create a double exposure

Do instant camera pictures fade?

Instant camera photos will fade at about the same rate as regular photos do. That is if they’re stored properly. If you put them on your wall or in a frame in your room they’ll fade as you’d expect them to. So, if you want to keep them for ages, here’s a few tips:

  • Store them in dark spaces
  • Let them dry for a week or so first
  • Only touch the white edges

You can store some photos to your instant camera, and if you want to keep them for prosperity, choose a model that allows you to use a micro-SD card. But instant cameras are called instant cameras for a reason. They’re a heap of fun, straight away.
