I think this is the ugliest camera Instax has ever made

Fujifilm has announced the launch of its latest and first-ever pocket-sized digital camera, the Instax Pal– and boy is it ugly (sorry Fuji). As far as design choices go, we're a little baffled that this one made the cut, with a seemingly rudimentary attempt to make the camera cute and appealing to kids and teens, but in reality, it's giving Mike Wazowski vibes. 

As someone who owns the sauve-looking Fujifilm Instax Mini 40, this new juvenile design just isn't cutting it for me. The Instax Pal is not like any of the best instant cameras that have come before, and what sets it apart from the usual Instax range of instant cameras is not only its super small size (and ugly aesthetic, which admittedly is a first for Instax), but the fact it doesn't create its own prints either.
