If you want a compact, instant camera to snap the last of the summer weddings or the splashy, sandy fun of your beach holiday, it's hard to think of a better option than the Instax Mini 9. But there are creative uses for it too, giving this camera longevity well after the summer – it's a great way to get a quick thumbnail snap for a moodboard, for example.
This camera doesn't take itself too seriously, it's cute, compact and built for fun with friends or family. Its selfie mirror and close-up function will capture every silly moment, and kids will love the credit card size photos it produces instantly. The Instax Mini runs on AA batteries, making it easy to maintain – with no irritating wait for charge if it happens to run out during all the fun. And the lens attachment gives it power you wouldn't expect from such a little camera.
It's worth noting that the other eight colours are still at full price – it's only the lime green and colbalt blue versions on sale at this time. The cheapest we've seen the Instax Mini 9 elsewhere is £54.99, so don't miss out on this great saving. Although you'll have to act quickly as this deal ends at midnight tonight!
