Polaroid Mio :]

Postby Instant Integral » Thu 23 December 2010 / 02:28 am

So does anyone here have one? I bought one on ebay a couple years ago and I think its pretty cool for a mini Polaroid. I choose this over a Instax mini because I think it has a better design. Some of the Instax camera's are ugly and this is coming from a Fujifilm fan!

I like the fact that the flash can be turned off aswell. I mainly use this camera for parties and with friends.

Are you sure about the flash? Because it cannot be turned off on the Fuji...
If what you say is true, it would be übercool :0)

Oh YES! The Mio's Flash can be turned off just like the Instax 500AF.

Also it takes any Instax Mini Film so its very readily available!

I've been surfing the web and cannot find anywhere a specification about the off mode for the flash on the Polaroid Mio. All I could find was that there is a "fill-in" mode...

So I was wondering if you are sure there is a "Flash Off" mode.
Because as far as I know the only camera that takes Instax films AND that has the ability to turn off the flash is the Instax 500AF.
None of the Fuji Instax mini cameras can turn off their flash.

And a common misconception is that the "flash" button on the fuji cameras is for turning the flash off...
Except on the 500AF where there is actually an icon (a lighting within a forbidden symbol) for the "Flash-Off" mode, the flash button on ALL OTHER Fuji cameras is for putting the flash in "Fill-In" mode.

So i'm sorry if I insist but is there actually a "Flash-Off" symbol appearing on the Mio? Are you sure the flash does not fire in low lights situations.

I really would like to have a camera to shoot in Instax Mini, and i'd like to be certain that I don't buy a Polaroid Mio just to find out the flash doesn't turn off...

Actually it does have the fill flash button. I must have confused it for a actual off button because if it has enough light the flash wont fire.

I love my Polaroid Mio. I wanted one of the new Polaroid 300s when they came out several months ago. Before I got a chance to buy one I found a Mio at the thrift store for $6. It is in perfect working order.

So the Mio works with Mini Instax films ?

Was it originaly a renamed Fuji camera, like the Polaroid 300 ?

Yes it takes instax mini films. Its pretty much the same exact camera as the Instax mini20 but with a different look.

I have a 300 and that is the same thing as the mini 7. Guess they got lazy and didnt want to make it look different
