Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 review: Is it better than the Mini 9?

by | Aug 3, 2020 | Photography, Things we love | 210 comments

INSTAX Mini 11 – the follow-up to the super popular Mini 9 (top-selling camera of the Instax family) – IS HERE!!!! So, you know what that means… Time for us to play and do a little Instax Mini 11 review. Let’s find out if the upgrades make the Mini 11 better than our beloved Mini 9.

Instax Mini 11 Review And Colour Options

Price and where to buy:

The INSTAX Mini 11 retails for R1 199, or as a kit with one pack of Instax film (10 prints) for R1 349 and is available from leading photography and electronic stores as well as Musica and Big Blue. Online at Takealot.com.

First impressions…

Rounder corners, softer edges and a more comfortable fit in the hand gives the Mini 11 a fresh, sleek feel without compromising the iconic “Mini” look.

The on-trend pale colour pallet keeps things fun!

And thoughtful details such as the embossed INSTAX logo over the film door and wristband adds to the designer esthetic of the Mini 11.

Is The Instax Mini 11 A Good Camera 2

I can’t help but want to pick it up and start snapping away!

New extra bits to personalise your Mini 11 include button covers. Choose between a glow in the dark or a jewel button.

I did give these a go but, call me old-fashioned, I still prefer a “clean button”.

What we love most about the Instax Mini 11

FUJI has kept everything we love about the Mini 9 while bettering what caused some frustration…

No more dark photos!

Don’t you just hate being out with friends or visiting someplace incredible, trying to capture the scene with your instant camera only to get a photo of yourself – no background included…?

The “Automatic Exposure” function, helps you take better photos no matter the lighting conditions. That means no more precious film wasted while trying to figure out which setting works best!

The Mini 11 automatically senses the level of ambient light when the shutter button is pressed, adjusting the shutter speed and flash output according to your surroundings.

Taking Better Photos With Your Instax Mini 11

Basically it gives you just the right amount of “flash” to keep both the subject and background correctly exposed. It’s especially handy for nighttime and indoor photos.

Fuji Instax Mini 11 Review Just A Mamma Blog 9119

Perfect selfies and close-ups!

Getting super close or snapping up that selfie is easier than ever with the Selfie Mode feature.

Fuji Instax Mini 11 Review Just A Mamma Blog 9098

Yes, the Mini 9 had an adaptor for this – but I never really knew what it was for and lost it on our first trip away. Now Selfie Mode is built-in and can be activated simply by pulling out and extending the front end edge of the lens.

Taking Better Selfies With Your Instax Mini 11

The focusing distance is around 30-50cm away and as always, you frame your selfie by checking the little mirror panel on the side of the lens.

Fuji Instax Mini 11 Review Just A Mamma Blog 9117

It’s such an easy feature, even Lia (age 5) took perfectly, crisp, clear images on her 1st try.

What could be better?

The Mini 11 has definitely impressed and made me fall in love with the Mini range all over again. If I had to nitpick, I would ask FUJIFILM to come up with better ways for us to personalize our cameras. Maybe stickers or markers to doodle a fun design into the cameras. The button covers (that keep falling off) is only a start…

Final thoughts on the INSTAX Mini 11

The Mini 11 makes taking good instant photos easy! It basically does the thinking for you while you focus on sharing the fun with friends.

It also performs far better than the Mini 9 in terms of image clarity, ease of use and exposure.

Fuji Instax Mini 11 Review Just A Mamma Blog 9114

The Mini Liplay and Share SP-3 Printer still hold the top spot as our favourites. Only thing is, they don’t give the same instant satisfaction, excitement and joy as when you press the shutter button of a INSTAX Mini 11.

Instax Mini 11 Vs The Mini 9

Added good news…

INSTAX SA has also finally launched their incredible range of accessories too! Camera cases, beautiful photo albums, frames, stands and more. Just to give sharing your moments that extra special touch…

So, seeing as it’s my birthday and Instax are all about #dontjusttakegive

    Love that the flash gives the right light to include backgrounds and that selfies are now even easier to get right and not waste prints. Would love to welcome the instax mini 11 to the family!

    I love the “No more dark photos” feature! It seems to just bring the photo even more to life. Love the new look too, doesn’t seem bulky! Perfect for capturing those special moments with my boys. No one is really around to take pictures of me with my boys so these perfect selfies would be ideal for us to build memories 💜

    I love the updated look and feel – subtle changes but makes a huge difference! The candy colours are fab too 🥰 And I think my favourite update is the perfect selfies – who knew a Polaroid could take selfies?!

    The colours are just beautiful!Gimme that LILAC 😍. I love the fact that the photos are ready within 90 seconds! Gosh, I’ve got a bunch of photos stored on my phone or hard drive just piling up and waiting to be printed. I would so love to win this camera for its instant printing feature so i can frame those special moments immediately and not lose them (which has happened before when your hard drive crashes!what a nightmare that was for me. Took me a while to get over). I also love the fact that it has a built in selfie mode as well as it operates on 2x AA batteries. How awesome and easy is that! Oh did i mention the fact that its lightweight and small…..definitely will be going with me everywhere 😀.. LOVE,LOVE,LOVE

    The colours are just beautiful! Gimme that Lilac 😍. I love the fact that it generates instant photos that i can immediately frame. I’ve got sooo many photos of my little ones stored either on my phone or a hatd drive just waiting to be printed (and yes I’velost so many of them too with a hard drive crashing. That was a nightmare as I’m very over capturing those moments and having them to look at forever). This feature by far is the best for me personally. I’d just love to have the memories in my hand 90 seconds later ♥️. I also love the fact that is works with 2xAA batteries. How easy and cheap! Thats an A+ in my eyes. Lets talk about the auto exposure feature…. ooooh we all know that you just need the perfect lighting in order to get the perfect photo. This feature defnitely gets me going as well as the built in SELFIE mode feature. Sounds too good to be true. No extra added accessories to carry is sooooo wonderful! Win win win! The light weight….defnitely carrying this baby in my bag wherever i go. Love Love Love!

    The most important thing about photography is background and lighting. I love love love the fact that the lighting is much better with the Instax Mini 11. I did nightlife photography with my mini 9 and i would sometimes waste a few films because of the lighting. It was my extra income as i sold the films to people as memories. Unfortunately my instax mini 9 got stolen along with my case and a few films. Im excited and would like to thank the Instax team for the opportunity to enter this competition . Theres soo many things that was mentioned in the review that is very exciting about the Instax mini 11 but my favourite one is the lighting.

      Hi there Lizzet.

      Yay! So glad I could help. Yes, for sure. The Mini 11 may seem like it has fewer features but definitely delivers a better image. If however, you want to go for TOP of the range when it comes to the Mini format. Have a look here: https://justamamma.com/instax-liplay-review-everything-you-need-to-know/

      The LiPlay is in a completely different price class but also gives so much more when it comes to photography possibilities.
