The four best instant cameras to give away on Father’s Day

With the Father’s Day coming up –it is celebrated on March 19 in Spain–, many of us may be asking ourselves the big question: what can we water it with? An original option, although useful, can be found in instant cameras: models that continue the technology of Polaroid cameras.

What does an instant camera offer compared to digital ones? Basically, and as its name suggests, the possibility of have the photo a few seconds after taking them. Although they became popular in the last century and the mirrorless seem to dominate the market, the reality is that it is becoming more and more common to see film cameras in the usual consumer technology stores.

Especially among the youngest, these cameras are living a second golden age thanks to the fact that they are related to the “vintage” phenomenon. Now there are many people who we can see use them in meetings, festivals or through social networks to give an “analog” touch to the photographs they take.

Its operation, moreover, is very simple: you insert the film in the camera, take the picture and it comes out of the body. After a few seconds, we can have our image already printed.

In ConsumptionOf course, we recommend some of the best models in relation quality/price.

One of the classic brands, and one that could not be left out among the recommended ones, is Kodak with its C300R. It is an instant camera with a square format (76×76) that also offers the possibility of saving them at the same time on our mobile phone.
